About KYU

Chef Michael Lewis and General Manager Steven Haigh bring a fresh concept to Miami with the opening of KYU. The wood-fired Asian grill features a diverse menu and focuses on professional yet relaxed service and a commitment to green practices.

Chef Lewis’s menu is influenced by years of global travel and inspired by Japanese and Korean yakiniku (literally translated to grilled meat in Japanese). The plates are designed to be straightforward and shareable, enabling a warm social environment. Barbecue aficionados will notice elements of American Southern barbecue peppered throughout the menu including the traditional “slow and low” technique. A carefully curated cocktail list features variations of classic cocktails with clever Asian twists.

The space was designed to bring elements of the neighborhood in with raw concrete, local art, and wood and metal accents. The natural elements in the contemporary design are reflective of

Another excellent meal. Still my favorite restaurant in Miami. Service was especially good this time.The short beef was a new dish I tried and it was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this to anyone, I always try to take friends/family when they come into town.

A group of 6 of us went on Sunday for lunch. 4 of us were on the same check. It was easy to make a reservation a few days ahead. You need to tell the waiter about splitting checks, he didn't keep track of what people had ordered specific plates. \n\nFood Recommendations of what the 4 of us ordered: \n- beef tartare\n- roasted cauliflower \n- Korean chicken\n- Thai fried rice hot pot with pork sausage\n- eggs Benedict with crispy pork\n- We also ordered the grouper, but I didn't try it. Was told it was good. \n\nBecause it annoys me when online menus don't have prices... Bill was $162 and change. Two of us used our open table credits for $20 which brought the bill down to 122 and a 20% tip had already been applied - ~$30\n\nOur experience at this place over all was good, but several aspects were rather annoying that I didn't read about in previous comments and want to mention. Had we not had the open table credits, we probably would not have gone there. The price was too expensive for the experience we got. The only thing that saved the 4 star rating I gave was the food. I won't be going back. \n\nBathrooms - awkward, tall, square toilet seats and no toilet paper. The owners tried so hard to be modern in the design that the function was not comfortable at all. I don't think it would be handicap friendly. \n\nWhen we got to the table, 3 flies flew away from it... \n\nProbably the most worrisome aspect if you have allergies!!!\nThe server asked us for our allergies to make sure the food didn't contain any of them... he didn't check the allergens my partner mentioned. My partner was sick most of the afternoon after accidentally eating a pepper based sauce. Their allergy was mild and only led to having to spend time in the bathroom, but it could be worse for others who have more severe allergies. Be aware. \n\nFood was on point. Service was lackluster.

Upon arrival we we told that I made the reservation for the wrong week. Did she realize that the reservation was in my phone and easy to verify what date I made the reservation for?? Luckily we were seated promptly at the bar tables that they call 'the lounge'. Though there was nothing loungey about the area as the seats were as hard and uncomfortable as the rest of the restaurant. The decor was industrial chic which was really minimalistic creating a space that looked temporary and cafeteria like. That is all fine but when you're charging $40 for brisket it's a bit cheap feeling. \n\nWe did the tasting menu and while the food was mostly really good, the portion sizes made it like no other tasting menu I've ever had. It was more a sampling of too many items from the menu. By the end me and my date could only take a taste and then not eat any more. This was unfortunate because I really wanted to eat more of the amazing brisket but I didn't want to get sick. \n\nThe waitstaff was nice enough but the pacing of the meal was off. And it felt rushed. I would def go back for the cauliflower, brisket and stone pot rice. All were standouts.

My husband and I recently moved to Miami with our children and we accidentally discovered Kyu one afternoon while exploring Wynwood. We made a point of going back for a date night and fell in love with the food and the energetic vibe of the place. We have since gone back with our two young boys, both of whom devoured the baby back ribs, Korean fried chicken, pork sausage fried rice pot, and roasted potato, not to mention they loved the fact they could get cool non-alcoholic drinks; our boys have already asked when we can go back, which coming from these two picky eaters is a ringing endorsement! We have yet to find something about Kyu that we don't like...well, OK, if push comes to shove it can get a bit loud on a weekend evening, but the hip atmosphere, great wine list, and lip-smackingly delicious food more than make up for it. We'll definitely be going back again and again!

As well travelled self proclaimed foodies this was the best food we've had in Florida yet, we shared 6 dishes, all outstanding and were kindly offered 2 deserts on the house as we couldn't decide ourselves. Decent wine selection and as one of us is gluten/wheat intolerant we were happy to find so many options on the menu. We'll be back, dying to try brunch at KYU.\n\nThank you KYU

Don't get this hipster concepts anymore. Mix regular ingredients with fancy flavours which don't even go well together and call it whatever fusion cuisine. Make it on top of it as spicy as you can to kill every natural flavor of the product...I believe the concept is considered Asian smokehouse and yes the place smells like they are smoking 24/7. What a great concept, your clothes will smell as you been hanging out at some campfire for the evening!

KYU is worth seeking out for its unique menu. With only two people for lunch we couldn't try every interesting item, but shared notes with the next table. For starters we had the grilled peppers, which were not spicy hot and the dipping sauce was delicious. Second item was the pork belly bun, also had a great spicy sauce. Both went well with the crisp Sapporo beer and the local amber ale. For main course we shared the Korean fried chicken, another great very spicy sauce, served with a dollop of spinach. With three pieces it was plenty. The table next to us raved about the mushrooms, the cauliflower and the Thai hot pot. We'll be back to sample the rest of the menu, particularly since not all items are available at lunch.

I was very disappointed after reading so many good reviews and magazine ranking it at the first place in Miami! Such a joke!!\nThe food is very photogenic so don't get mistaken, the quality of the meat is really low (short ribs are awful) and everything is drowned in oil and very greasy. \nI was very excited from seeing all the pretty pictures on instagram or yelp but the reality is so different.\nOn top of it the service is just pathetic, I had to complain about my waiter as after 50 min I was sitting nothing arrived, not even the wine. He was busy taking pictures and laughing with another table and when asked he also rolled his eyes and went away. Although the manager changed my waiter the food came very slowly and they forgot 3 dishes out of 6 from my order.\nI would not recommend this place to anyone.\nThe decor is nice but it's not enough to make me go back.

Top 5 recommendations - Raging Geisa (Cocktail), Shiso Sour (Cocktail), Beef Tartare (Wish I could eat it every day), Cauliflower (Salivating over the thought of it right now), and the Hamachi (Out of this world).

F*ck thats delicious. Every items I tried was beyond belief. The Korean Chicken is out of this world. The cocktails were amazing. The service was good but the waiter seemed busy and took my jokes as a relaxer on the service. We were there at the end of the night, but if you say you're bringing the silverware dont forget. I still tipped 25% and was about to go back the next day. I guess a little patience goes a long way here.

The space has a very nice vibe with calm lighting and a modern feel. We ordered the Pork Belly steamed buns and the Brisket Lettuce Wraps to share. Both plates were delicious, as was the s'mores dessert dish. Will absolutely be back in the future.

Not a good value: Very expensive small plates to share. You automatically pay to drink water---you have to ASK to get tap water. \nThe ribs were great---very meaty and tasty but at 6 ribs for $28 to share are not a good value. Baked potato for $12 was well prepared and an interesting flavor but was still $12 for ONE potato.\nIf you are on an expense account or just love to go to the most trendy places and damn the cost---this is your place.\nFor similarly interesting small plates at a much better value go to Wynwood Kitchen. And no, I have no relationship with that place.

KYU is one of my wife and my favorites in Miami, when we are in town we count this as a must stop and we have our favorites, Softshell Crab Bao Bun, Korean Fried Chicken, Smoked Brisket or Short Rib or Duck, spinach in coconut milk and some sake or a cocktail. You can't go wrong with any of these dishes. ONE Big note we learned is on Sunday night they DO NOT have the smoked goods, the menu is still terrific, but we had a hankering for the smoked short rib and we were disappointed, so beware of this little menu change. We would love to see some new deserts as we have tried the coconut cake, smore etc and they unfortunately aren't the same caliber as the rest of the menu which totally rocks.

Rough night. Had a reservation but was seated at a long table by the kitchen. After being hit by 3 servers we were moved to another high table. Chairs at both locations were Very uncomfortable. Ordered a Manhattan and it was the worst I've ever had. Really awful. They tried to fix fix it but still bad so I went to wine. Food was actually tasty but very slow. Maybe 40 minutes between courses. I think they were overwhelmed and do not have control of this massive space. I ended up standing for dessert so I didn't have to sit any longer.

The food quality was average, given the prices. Service was average at best, as our server was not very attentive and always seemed rushed/disinterested. Extremely noisy. However, what bothered me the most is that I chose this restaurant for my wife's birthday, specifically because she wanted to try it. When I made the reservation on open table, I made a note in the comments that it was her birthday. When the restaurant called to confirm the reservation, I again confirmed with the hostess that it was my wife's birthday and that I would appreciate it if they could acknowledge that when we ordered dessert. She told me that it was in the notes, not to worry and that it would be taken care of. The birthday was not acknowledged by anyone at anytime during our time at KYU. My wife and I regularly dine at many of the best restaurants in Miami. Presumably KYU strives to be considered one of the best restaurants in Miami. However, if they hope to achieve this status, they should learn to observe the basic tenets of customer service - such as having a system in place to simply acknowledge a birthday.

I realize i did not list a lot of veggies, but they have great Thai Coconut spinach. Cocktails are interesting and tasty.

This place is a winner all across the board so bring your appetite.

Reserve way ahead of time. Very good service. Very good cocktails and inventive food. \nI could go on about specific dishes but really just go try it. It's all good. We had several dishes to share. \nThe family style concept is a bit played out and I think that a restaurant of this caliber should be serving entrees. Having said this, it's a bit over priced for what you get (family style). \nWill I go back? Probably...but there are sooo many restaurants in Miami that are a better value. \nA mixed review

Well, the food was delicious - a good balance between unique and familiar. The wood oven gave the food a wonderful flavor and the restaurant was fashionable without being uncomfortable. But what really made KYU stand out was the service. Everyone from the hostess to the bus boy, the waiter, Rob and especially Lizzy made the evening a pleasure. We rave about the food, but these people made the evening

I had lunch with my husband and parents. Service was good; however, some of the food we ordered never came. We also told the waitress that each one will have their own food. The food came one at a time, so it was awkward eating while my parents were waiting for their food. My mom ordered the thai fried rice with king crab. It was good; however very spicy. This was a setback as the memu never indicated it was a spicy dish nor did the waitress mentioned it. I had the lamb chops, delicious! My husband had the beef tenderloin, he order medium well and their were more medium than well done. A setback, but ate it because we did not want to return it. My dad had the groper, it was good. Overall the food was good, but service needs to improve and the food needs to be quicker if the guests are not sharing the dishes.

Every single bite was worth it and absolute perfection. We started with cocktails, the 99 reasons was delicious, one of the best mixed drinks I have ever had, and I don't like Mezcal but you could not even get a hint of it. The starters were both options of steamed buns, the pork belly and the soft shell crab both battled to a draw they were both uniquely delicious. The crispy spicy hamachi was recommended by Elizabeth our server and she was spot on, another great selection. For entrees we had the fried rice that came out in a pot and was stirred table side, nice touch. We then shared the duck breast, beef brisket, and the Korean fried chicken. I enjoyed the brisket because it came with many condiments to change every bite, but that fried chicken, we are still talking about it today. Finally, it was a good thing we listened to Elizabeth about dessert as she was correct about the coconut cake, amazing. We also added the smore cake and that was the final touch on a perfect dinner. Congratulations on a great restaurant and concept, can't wait to be back. A big thank you to Elizabeth, she was exceptional with her service and recommendations.

the space is cool and yes, there is valet parking! the menu is perfect with more than one thing for every taste and divided up in to fun categories like snacky snacks and chilled and refreshing! the staff was really helpful and we decided to go with almost all of the recommendations and they were great. must haves are the cauliflower and burrata. yes, you may think been there, done that. but trust me, these are different and delicious. the Hamachi tartare was another different and delicious. of course, we had to have the Korean fried chicken after all it was our first visit. the next time we already know we need to order the crab thai fried rice pot and at least one of the fish dishes and the duck with the 'burnt ends'. instead of more food, we opted to try desserts and wow! I don't even love coconut cake and it looks beautiful and tastes even better and its called 'mom's coconut cake'. for chocolate lovers, the dark chocolate s'mores cake is for sure the way to go. oh yeah, we also had some side vegetable dishes. bottom line- there are no wrong choices here! and while a hot spot, it is also warm and welcoming!

After finally getting reservations for KYU we left feeling like it wasn't worth the wait. Our table wasn't ready which isn't a big deal except the system was down so we couldn't order drinks at the bar. The waitress' suggestion for how much we should order was grossly exaggerated! We ordered the fried chicken, which was one of the main reasons for going to KYU, and 20 minutes after taking our order she informed us that they had run out! We understand that the way the menu is set up different plates would be arriving at different times, however, some small plates and side dishes came so late we had to take them to go. A manager approached our table and apologized saying those items would be complimentary....thankfully, we checked the bill as everything was still on it plus items we hadn't ordered.

We were also not informed when making the reservation that we would be using the LUNCH menu at 5:30 in the evening. I would hope a restaurant can have the DINNER menu ready by 5:30 in the evening.

We made a reservation on OpenTable for 845pm. We got there and the place was PACKED. We thought great, we have a reservation NO BIG DEAL. WRONG. First they told us to wait by the bar. Then 15 minutes passed. They said so sorry should be a few more minutes. Then 10 minutes passed. We notice a large table open. Then we go to the host stand what the heck is up? So Sorry some people are not getting up. 15 more minutes. I am HANGRY its getting late and still no sit down. Finally, they seat us at the large open table - but wait, the table finally gets up as we sit down. So they move us to our rightful table at 945pm. ONE HOUR AFTER OUR RESERVATION. I was going to write the angriest yelp review. I was going to plaster this trendy place. But then, the service came. And then, the food came. Both were beyond outstanding. This is a bonafide top 5 miami restaurant. Really a gem. Then they comped not one not two BUT THREE Desserts which were all mouthwatering.

it's with pain in my heart I give this place 3 stars but there are just to many things that need to get better. A positive point is for sure the atmosphere which is sober but very vibrant. The design of the furniture is great. Another positive point is the staff. You see that the GM has experience in one of the best restaurant groups in the world. Everybody was very hands on, friendly, quick and really there to give the customer a great time.\nSo why the low review? Simply about the food. I might have had to high hopes but even not knowing the background of this restaurant I was not impressed at all.I ordered the cauliflower with goat cheese. It was certainly not bad but it didn't give me a smile on my face. Also because of the sauce under it is very spicy I don't recommend anybody ordering this dish without goat cheese, you really need the goat cheese to blend with the sauce the soften the spices. My next dish was the beef tartar which was perfectly seasoned, the only thing I didn't understand where the big pieces of pecorino cheese in the tartare. First because it's not mentioned on the menu which I think they should for sure if you don't eat cheese( I like cheese so it was not a problem for me) and second instead of putting brunoise of cheese I would just scrape cheese of the pecorino which will taste much more refined and less concentrated.Third dish were the tomatoes which was awful. to finish I had the tenderloin. Cooked perfectly medium rare but for my taste the chunks of meat were way to large and not cut in a good way. I couldn't eat them with chopstick without first pulling them apart with my hands because they were not cut entirely and even if they were cut how it should be I would cut thinner slices.Overall I was impressed with the service and atmosphere but at the end this place is a restaurant and the most important thing is having awesome food which I don't thing this place has, yet. It has a lot of potential but a lot of work to do in the kitchen.

the space was modern and cool. the food overall was good. we started with the pork belly bun, and it was very tasty. the pork could have been a slightly more tender for my taste. The veggie Thai Rice bowl was probably the best thing we ate. The Wagyu Brisket was very good, almost pastrami tasting. Similar to the pork the brisket could have been a little more tender, but the dish overall was very good. The sauces were tasty. Service was courteous and polite, but a little uneven. The waitress forgot about a glass of wine that was ordered, and at times we wanted more water. The concept is fun and food is good, and I look forward to going back to try more dishes.

Great first visit. Highly recommended the duck with burnt ends. Perfectly cooked and very flavorful. Also enjoyed the octopus & the cauliflower. Looking forward to returning and crushing the dinner menu.

Chef Michael is a true genius in the kitchen. Arrive with an open mind and allow yourself to be seduced by the combinations of flavors of this Asian fusion oral brothel. \n\n The properly trained serving staff understands the pace of their customer and allows you time to pause, before your next course. \n\n Make your reservation in advance it is well worth the wait. \n\n\n- Enjoy

Being that both me and my wife are big foodies, I researched quite a bit for the latest rest. trend in the Wynwood area. After much searching I asked a very close friend for ideas and he told me of KYU. I already loved Zuma, so when I heard that the chef was the same it was a no brainer. Must say the tenderloin is absolutely AMAZING, definitely a MUST HAVE. Service was incredible, so good that i went beyond the 20% tip margin. I would recommend this place to anyone hands down.

The team at KYU got it right from day one & it just keeps getting better. Reasonably priced dishes to share. Best BBQ Short rib ever and each presentation is artfully prepared. It hard to choose a favorite but when it's all said & done don't miss the coconut cake. It's the chef's grandmother's recipe and worth breaking any diet.\nThe room has a wonder vibe & energy and the combination of individual tables next to group tables make for an interesting & fun experience. Professional mixologists together with an ever changing list of local brews on tap make for an enjoyable bar scene but no so crowded that you have to push your way to the bar to get a drink. Starting with the mural and wall garden our front the entire operations is designed to provide a completely enjoyable dining experience. Do not miss KYU!
