Wife and I along with my nephew and girlfriend had dinner last night prior to a concert at the ACC. In he heart of downtown lies the fantastic Vancouver replica restaurant now in Toronto which serves imaginative appetizers , high quality Nigiri and tremendous rolls that one finds is hard to stop eating . Albacore tuna belly, beef carpaccio with soft boiled egg, spicy edamame all highlights . The red wave roll and scallop nigiri were amazing. Our server was attentive along with the supporting cast who could easily explain the contents of every dish with alarming clarity. It's somewhat pricy as dinner for 4 with two bottles of wine at $59 each came to $450. It's likely because the food was so delicious we threw caution to the wind and simply experimented with numerous dishes and dessert. One could easily spend less but you will be tempted to do otherwise and love doing so! Excellent restaurant.

Sashimi and sushi selection was delicious but pricey to satisfy a hungry appetite! Used the modern clean setting as a Pre-Leafs Game, for proximity to the ACC.

To enter Miku Toronto, you have to walk through the doors inside the lobby of the RBC Waterpark Place. Miku doesn’t have their own entrance outside of this building. It took me some figuring out to find the rotating doors on Bay Street that were unlocked in order to get inside to the restaurant.

We were first served with an amuse bouche of oyster croquettes. This bite-sized croquette was indeed really good and I was delighted to start the meal with an amuse bouche.

To my surprise, our platters of sushi arrived very quickly — quicker than the average high-end sushi joint. We weren’t complaining though since we got to enjoy our aburi right away.

I savoured my Premium Nigiri selection first. There were seven pieces of really well crafted nigiri pieces where the fish was very fresh, soft, and tender paired with rice that was equally soft and fine. We had a selection of two types of soy sauce (one sweet regular one and another one that I believe was exclusive to Miku). I especially liked how the nigiri pieces were very substantial and sizable. I really enjoyed each piece and loved how fresh the seafood was. The crafting of the nigiri was excellent. My favourites in this selection would have had to be the salmon and ebi nigiri.

The Aburi Oshi Plate had two pieces each of Salmon Oshi, Saba Oshi, and Ebi Oshi. The Ebi Oshi Sushi was pressed prawn with lime zest and ume sauce. This was a really light tasting Ebi Oshi but the prawn was firm and the entire sushi tasted very creamy and saucy. The Saba Osih Sushi was pressed house-cured mackerel with miso sauce.

The Salmon Oshi Sushi was my favourite one out of the three. This was pressed British Columbia wild sockeye salmon with jalapeño and Miku sauce. Mmm, I love wild sockeye salmon and this was so delicious! The slight heat of the jalapeño was perfect and there was a very subtle crunch from it as well.

For dessert, T ordered the Green Tea Opera (of which I took a bite to try). Again, it arrived very quickly after ordering and it was absolutely a piece of art work — food art! The food runner who brought it to us informed us that this Green Tea Opera cake took three days to make and that there were seven layers to it in total. The Green Tea Opera consisted of green tea génoise, matcha butter cream, dark chocolate ganache, adzuki bean cream, hazelnut wafer, and matcha ice cream. It was so well put together — the high standing sugar decoration to the colourful fruits to the swirl of the rice cracker around the perfectly scooped matcha ice cream. It was incredibly delicious, crunchy yet smooth, and very flavourful. The matcha ice cream was very milky too. If you are a matcha dessert fan and willing to splurge, this is definitely worth it.

Went as a group of 6 so perfect for sharing. They do have sample platters for one. Must have the Spicy Sesame Edamame. The sashimi was very fresh. Really enjoyed the scallop. The aburi salmon oshi was fantastic. So well seasoned. All the specialty rolls were great. For dessert we had the green tea opera (just okay), apple sticky pudding (nice), and pear ginger sorbet (nice). Service was very efficient.
