Join Us to Celebrate 3 Years in Toronto!

This October, we will be celebrating our 3-year anniversary in Toronto.

This year is extra special to us because it marks the 10th year of our Aburi brand being in Canada. Our first location in downtown Vancouver opened in 2008, when owner Seigo Nakamura introduced Aburi (flame seared) sushi to Canada. We’re proud to see that Aburi sushi has become so popular across Canada!

To celebrate this special milestone, our chefs have created an exclusive 5 course Anniversary Kaiseki menu featuring a selection of dishes that highlight our Aburi cuisine and contemporary culinary style. Pair with our featured sake pairing to complete your meal.

Miku Toronto Grand Opening!

Aburi Restaurants Canada Announces Opening of Miku Toronto


Aburi Restaurants Canada announces the grand opening of Miku Toronto on October 16 as its first foray outside of Vancouver. Specializing in Aburi flame-seared sushi and seafood, the restaurant will combine its award-winning flavours with local Ontario ingredients to cater to the Toronto market. Situated in the RBC WaterPark Place building at 10 Bay Street, close to the city’s scenic waterfront and steps away from the newly renovated Union Station, the 7,000 square foot restaurant features two private dining rooms, a fresh raw bar and large outdoor patio.

“Since introducing Aburi flame-seared sushi to Vancouver six years ago, it has always been our goal to bring the Aburi flavour to the East Coast,” says Seigo Nakamura, Founder/CEO, Aburi Restaurants Canada. “Internationally, Toronto is known as a cultural hub with a rapidly growing culinary scene. Opening Miku in Toronto is a natural step toward making Aburi Restaurants a truly global brand.”

Having years of experience with Aburi Restaurants Canada, Corporate Executive Chef, Kazuya Matsuoka, Chef de Cuisine, Michael Acero, and Head Sushi Chef, Kazuki Uchigoshi, will oversee the vibrant menu at Miku Toronto. Guests will be treated to innovative dishes including Miku Restaurant’s signature Aburi “flame-seared” sushi, seafood entrées featuring local and ocean-friendly ingredients, as well as an extensive sake list. Miku Toronto will offer a choice three Kaiseki menus, inspired by traditional Japanese coursed menus, that are beautifully presented on hand-made Arita plateware from Kyushu, Japan.

Aburi Restaurants Canada is founded by Seigo Nakamura, who is also president of Tora Corporation, a successful company with several restaurants across southern Japan. Upon his first visit to Canada he envisioned revolutionizing Vancouver’s competitive sushi market by introducing Aburi sushi, carefully paired with signature sauces and lightly flame seared with Japanese charcoal to enhance the flavours of the fish. After opening Miku Restaurant in Vancouver in 2008, the community embraced the new concept, leading to the launch of Minami and Gyoza Bar. His most recent venture, Miku Toronto, will be his first restaurant in Canada outside of Vancouver.

Miku Toronto will begin taking reservations on October 7 for lunch and dinner service beginning on October 16 via Open Table, telephone 647-347-7347 or at mikutoronto.com. Bookings for large parties or private events can be arranged by emailing event coordinator Olivia Lowe at events@mikutoronto.com.
