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.

This was our third dinner at Miku and our first experience with the summer menu. The taste sensations are memorable in comparison with ordinary sushi. Service was impeccable.

Great food. The only thing that made the experience bad were the flies that kept hovering over our table. I guess unavoidable when you have a patio door constantly opening.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Miku. We made our reservation noting two food allergies with guests we were dining with, a nut and seed allergy, and an avocado allergy. The restaurant called us the day of to confirm the reservation and I discussed the allergy with them- they did state some of the food they could not guarantee, but when I said we would likely just have sushi/sashimi they said it would be okay. After ordering the waitress came back and said that the same source is used for all sushi rice so all of the sushi rice is likely cross contaminated and there is no way they could ensure that the food we received is allergy free. This was only brought to our attention AFTER we had ordered appetizers, and since we were going to see a musical that evening we did not have time to leave and have dinner somewhere else. Please note if you have allergies that this restaurant IS NOT allergy friendly and front line staff seem unaware that they cannot accommodate allergies!

This was our first time at Miku. The Staff was exceptional, very attentive and very much contributed to the dining experience. Both the nigiri and sashimi were excellent as was the octopus. We found some of the speciality dishes a little under whelming. It is not inexpensive, but overall a very good dining experience and we are definitely planning on returning.

It's the third time I have eaten at Miku. What I find is that there are some really good dishes and some really bad dishes. It is definitely not consistently good

They tend to make too much fuss about their cuisine which is really ok. There are better high class Japanese restaurants where you can really experience new tastes.

Tried this restaurant in Vancouver few years ago and was happy to introduce their crafted sushi to my family.

The Oshi sushi rice foundation may be reduced when only one layer of fish. The rice was a little too thick from my first experience in Vancouver.

Other than that all was outstanding!

Miku never disappoints in providing a Japanese fine dining experience. Our sushi was delicate in taste and texture, and undoubtedly prepared with skill and a knowledge of flavors. The ambiance was quiet providing a great environment for happy, reflective conversation with my wife as I celebrated my birthday. The service team was very friendly and accommodating and knowledgeable ensuring our dinner was as we anticipated. Miku is an A+ for me and a great Downtown Toronto experience.

Miku is often our “go to” for special occasions. No more so than our recent visit for a celebratory lunch with friends. The Miku team was wonderful, particularly Caleb, who looked after our every need. They made a special day, a special memory. The food, as always, was spectacular. The lunch tasting menu was the perfect option and a good value. Love, love, love, Miku!

My friends called ahead two times to ensure there will be a surprise for my birthday and they told the waiter who is the birthday girl so they could write my name on the dessert. There is no name on my dessert so one of my friends talked to the manager and asked for the reason why and told him there is no need to apologise at the table because the birthday girl is there. The waiter came to apologise before the scoop of ice cream with happy birthday on the plate came so it is really embarrassing. Quite disappointed and hoped for better arrangement. The food is fair and the atmosphere is good.

Great date spot, went here for my husband's birthday and our 1st wedding anniversary (its on the same day) so that worked out great for us. Restaurant staff added a really nice touch on the dessert plates to acknowledge both celebrations. We ordered the Aburi Kaiseki dinner, it's really well done, the food is delicious and we were full from it too. Would definitely recommend Miku for date night dinners or special occasions.

Morgan our wait staff was excellent and very welcoming and helpful when it came to ordering the fusion items on the menu. He was very friendly and easy to talk with. Being of Japanese descent, I felt the pairing of certain items very different, the pressed sea food sushi was tasty but not exactly authentic. My Sablefish entree was just okay, felt like it was watery and steamed with no taste whatsoever. Highlight of the night was the complimentary blueberry icecream which was well presented.

Noisy and expensive but would definitely go back. The sushi and rolls were very good. The (real) mint ice cream was top notch. No soy sauce or wasabi is served but it was not missed. Also enjoyed the Sake and the Japanese whisky. The Scallops app was a little skimpy and unimpressive for the price. No quail's egg.

Our waitress was great! She was very friendly and knowledgeable about what they had to offer, she checked on how we were doing and if the food was great almost every time we had new food put on the table. We ordered the Kaiseki Aburi plus a smoked octopus starter and some sushi, then we finished off with the matcha ganache cake and elderflower dessert, it was very refreshing with a fruit salad buried inside it.
