About Miku Restaurant - Toronto

As the first East Coast location of Vancouver based Aburi Restaurants, Miku Toronto is proud to bring Aburi cuisine to Toronto's waterfront.

We specialize in innovative Aburi Sushi and seafood. Combining traditional Japanese techniques and flavours with fresh, local ingredients, our highly skilled chefs pair each morsel of sushi with a unique house made sauce in order to bring out the rich flavour profile of the fish, and then seal the flavours with a binchotan (oak charcoal)- accompanied flame sear. The result is the secret to Miku's success: sushi with a smoky aroma, umami flavour, and decadent, melt-in-your-mouth texture.

We also offer a variety of seafood entrées, appetizers, as well as seafood platters.

Our menu is best paired with our extensive sake, wine, and cocktail selection.

We found Miku while on vacation in Vancouver and were happy to hear about the location right here in Toronto. The service was polite, attentive and the right amount of “rush”. Food was creative, delicious and right on par with the Vancouver location. Fresh and unique, we sampled the aburi torched sushi. We have had nothing like it, its a reason to come back! Our only disappointment was the view in Toronto which is nothing to get excited about. Its the sidewalk. That’s it. What could they do? Add some greenery around the windows? Provide some more visual interest inside to detract from all the concrete? Prices are also sky high so this is really a special occasion resto not a place on frequent rotation.

Great place if you wanna go with your significant other on a great date! From the moment you walk in. The place is not overly decorated yet elegant, seating is comfy, food is fantastic. Your server will also explain to you your dish and what’s their cuisine is about which I find really nice and appreciate. Service is great and they’ve done a great job picking their servers. Prices are in the high side but that’s not your everyday go to dining restaurant. Don’t know about their wine selection since I don’t drink. All in all great experience and atmosphere. Definitely going back again.

The excellent experience starts from the reservation stage, though i made the booking online when i called to change the reservation details, the operator was professional to retrieve my information and assist all the way without hassle. On the day we were being well-taken care starting at reception, everybody is so nice especially the lady serving us was superb, we really had a great night there.

My first time and my girlfriend's first time dining at Miku Restaurant. This was the best meal I've had in a while (Aburi Kaiseki - $190.00 each). The flavours were extraordinary and the presentation was great. I liked the dinnerware Miku used to present each course and it was nice to have the chef who prepared particular courses visit our table to personally describe the dish and suggest how to eat it. Our waitress was very friendly and always had a smile on her face - she looked like she enjoyed where she was working very much. All courses were sent out at perfect timing intervals. I have no complaints for Miku Restaurant. Halfway through our Aburi Kaiseki meal, we already knew we wanted to come back. A "wow" factor in each course is what I look for in a tasting menu - something that makes the dish unique from other restaurants - and that's exactly what I found within Miku's Aburi Kaiseki. Needless to say, I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Larger and more interesting interior than it might appear from the outside when walking by. Lots to choose from. We enjoyed the kaiso seaweed salad with candied sockeye salmon, the spicy sesame edamame, the Kyoto saikyo miso baked sablefish, the Aburi oshi sampler - a sushi trio sampler (enough for 2 to try all 3 types), and those desserts, of which we had the green tea opera and the warm valrhona matcha chocolate fondant. That was quite a meal. Of our choices I would say that the sablefish and the fondant were the best, although the opera was not bad and apprently took 72 hours to make. The searing of the sushi did not seem to make too much of a difference. The appetizers we had were good but not really memorable. The server helped with making a balanced meal after we made some initial choices.

We had the 2018 Winterlicious menu for lunch this past week. Food again was excellent - I also had winterlicious here last year. Fills you up, great variety of food with an assortment of 4 dishes for the appetizer; akuri sushi for entree and their excellent 7 layer green tea opera cake for dessert. I would go back for winterlicious again if I could get a table.

Service was good except for our waitress.

Hands down the best sushi I've had in Toronto! The service was excellent, and despite the restaurant being completely full, it was not noisy at all. We went for Winterlicious to try it, and I would definitely spend the money to go for the regular menu. Can't wait to go again!

Winterlicious at Miku was amazing. I personally love Japanese cuisine so much, and have never been to Miku before. I browsed their winterlicious menu and some pictures online. They looked attractive, and they were indeed so delicious and every course was delicate. I recommend Miku Zen for appetizer because you get a try to four selections of dishes. I ordered Chirashi for entree and green tea opera cake for dessert, both were outstanding. It was a great dining experience at Miku!

The winterlicious lunch was an excel value, food was delicious and the portion was perfect. I would prefer the winterlicious lunch than their regular set lunch which the portion was way too much. Perhaps Miku can consider introduce a lighter set menu with portions similar to the winterlicious ones.

My only complain was that the Americano coffee was very acidic and it would have been better if it was served hotter. Perhaps there were more after meal hot beverage options but we were not offered a menu.
