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.

Best service ever. And not just from our server. Host was fantastic and really engaging. Really blew our minds how much time they spent with our teenage children explaining different options. Really a must when visiting Toronto.

Everything was delicious, but my favourite was the aburi sashimi appetizer. No wasabi or soy sauce was needed since each piece had unique sauces blended in. The Red Wave Roll could've been spicier. I actually didn't feel it was spicy at all. The wasabi on the individual nigiri pieces is very fresh, so it has the perfect amount of kick. It's a great restaurant to splurge a little to celebrate a special occasion.

I wasn't impressed with the service from our waiter, not friendly enough and felt more like we were a burden than valued guests. The food was tasty, however, it did not reflect the price of the food. The meal was almost $40 at the end for glorified tapas. For the price-value, I was not impressed.

Place was recommended as I was going to a Leaf game. I would give it an average rating, I have had better sushi and for the price point I did feel it was good value. Was kind of dead in the bar area as well so atmosphere a bit flat. The service staff were excellent however. KI at Bay and Wellington has it beat in my opinion.

This was my first experience at Miku. Next time I will request a booth. The sound level was disturbing to our conversation. The food was excellent as was our server. Although I had made a reservation there was initial confusion as to where we were to be seated and we were left stranded in the middle of the restaurant until they figured out where our table was.

A couple of the sushi seemed a bit dry and the aburi items I feel should at least have appeared to have been torched within the last few minutes. The temperatures of the neta seemed a bit off.

I've been to Miku twice. The first time was a much more enchanting experience, as it was all new, however the quality of food was consistently good and I enjoyed the ambiance. A must try for people who are tired of all you can eat sushi and enjoy something significantly upgrades. As for service, they definitely try their best to accommodate their guests. This is a place you go when you want to ensure you'll be treated well. Great presentation. Fun desserts.

Was highly rated on Trip Advisor but I would say this is a nice restaurant with decent food but quite over-hyped. There are far better Japanese restaurants in Toronto, eg, Ke that also has a better environment/vibe.

We tried the holiday special menu for $98 plus the wine tasting for $37 so one would expect a very memorable dinner. What we received was good/solid Japanese food with a large piece of prime rib. Interesting combination but not what I wanted, especially for that price. On the other hand the sake's were excellent and the service was super.

I took my sister here for her birthday as I had been to Miku in Vancouver a number of times. Service was excellent and food great. We knew to ask about the ebi fritters ( tempura shrimp with salad) as they were not on the menu and these should not be missed as they are delicious! The oishe sushi is excellent - different from traditional sushi but worth it. We had the salmon and it was wonderful - would highly recommend it. Only challenge is parking but you can park across the steeet at the Westin, just expensive at $20.

The food was very good. I had the holiday omakase. Everything was delicious. The restaurant called to confirm my booking the day before. It was for a birthday, and they told me that when the dessert would come out, they would bring something with written happy birthday on it. However, that never happened! I found that odd since they especially asked me about it over the phone.

we have been wanting to try this place for awhile, finally got to go and it did not disappoint. service was exceptional, food came out quick and the server we had was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu and any questions we had. the quality of the food was very very good, the only down fall was it was a tad pricey. but worth it. i would definitely recommend this place to others and i would return.
