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.

Private Dining

Miku Toronto offers one private and one semi-private dining room to suit your dining needs. The hand painted murals by acclaimed Japanese painter Hideki Kimura creates a special ambiance in our private dining rooms, creating one of Toronto’s truly unique and exceptional dining experiences

Attentive staff, Outstanding food, Great ambience. You can’t go wrong with any menu selection and if you can’t decide the staff is very helpful with suggestions. The Aburi Prime is an excellent choice to explore Miku’s innovative sushi.

The Aburi sushi is amazing. I would prefer it they would provide some soy sauce with the deluxe sushi platter in case you would like to dip some of the sushi in it.

The food was very tasty in terms of flavours and the rice was wonderful. However the portion of fish on the sushi was skimpy and the mussels were tiny. Not what one would expect at the price point.

Service was very good and ambience on patio was lovely.

This was my second visit to Miku and thank goodness I came back. If you go you MUST have the Aburi Kaiseki, please trust me it is worth it. Also ask to be sat in Grace's section. She is by far one of the most thoughtful, truly caring and professional servers I have experienced in all of my dining experiences all over the world.

Both visits I had the Kaiseki, the first time was the Miku Kaiseki back in August and during this visit I had the Aburi Kaiseki. My first visit was not bad however there was nothing truly memorable about the service or the menu.

My second visit however everything was memorable! From the great customer service that Grace (our server) provided to the incredible dishes that were part of the Aburi Kaiseki (especially the first course of seared Foie Gras.

Will definitely be back.

We went in with high expectations. For appetizers, we ordered beef carpaccio which was passable. We also ordered a steak which was tender and well cooked though a bit under seasoned. We finished with two Omakase sets. Of the 10 pieces, there were 3 pieces that were inedible. The beltfish had some ligament / unchewable piece left in and they decided to sear the BC uni (why!?) which made it decided fishy. The uni flavor was lost and we asked if it had gone bad. Finally, we specifically asked for two piece of Otoro (we ordered an extra piece), but we received only one piece - despite repeated clarifications.

This was my husband's and my first time at a high end restaurant and our experience was amazing. The staff was friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable; the food was absolutely delicious, cooked perfectly and very flavorful. They made our anniversary very special by doing a little something unexpected to our dessert. Definitely worth the money spent and we would go back there in a heartbeat.

Excellent food and for the quality of the food very reasonably priced. A very extensive sake menu.
The bbq eel and tuna tartare were our favourites.
We sat outside, we were worried about the street noise but it wasn’t a problem as they have barriers that block a lot of the noise.
The staff are very friendly.
I would certainly return on my next visit to Toronto and would recommend this restaurant.

This restaurant is a great addition to the Japanese restaurants available in Toronto - and to the Harbourfront area.

It is a bit 'hidden' in an office tower, which requires choosing the right doors to enter into the building if you are dining there outside regular business hours.

They have added a sidewalk patio for the summer season. We sat inside as it was a hot sticky night.

The restaurant is large and lofty. It was very quiet the night we dined (Saturday of Civic long / Caribbana weekend. The service is attentive and I think there is something on the menu for everyone.

They were very kind and made a special 'happy birthday dessert plate' for my friend which was great.

Food and service is outstanding. Very fresh and imaginative for all of the dishes we tried. Mostly we decided to share dishes including the mains. No problem from the wait staff in making it easy to share. This is high-end fusion Japanese, not a high-end traditional Japanese. The increased use of sauces, flavorings, portion sizes, and other non-typical Japanese preparations were present throughout all dishes, but it was all delicious. Only complaint is the ambience. The web site promotes the restaurant as an exclusive (expensive) place for discerning clientele including recommending a dress code of smart casual. It's actually a very large bustling and even noisy place and most of the people were wearing regular clothes and shorts and T-shirt would not seem out of place. We did feel overdressed. Also, even with many empty tables and the fact that we made a reservation, we got a middle of the room table in a crowded section when there were plenty of more intimate and appealing than our table. It was a celebration dinner with our family (all adults( and we spent a fair bit of money but the ambience really didn't match the exceptional quality of the food or service. I'd go there again in a heartbeat but my expectations are now better calibrated.

The food at Miku is excellent. We had the set menu which gave us a great selection of beautiful and delicious food. Our service was a bit slow, but the biggest disappointment was the washroom. The ladies washroom, obviously hadn’t been checked all evening. The wastebaskets were overflowing, toilets were unflushed. Our dinner cost about $600 for 4, including tax and tip. At those kind of prices, the washrooms should be pristine.

This restaurant is delicious. We went there (family of 4) and we really like the food. We drank sake and that was great with our food. I travelled a lot to Japan and this restaurant is very similar to what we can find in Japan.
Good service, great food. A but expensive, however, the food is delicious. We will definitely return there on our next trip to Toronto.
