14 Best Restaurants in Thornhill

Searching for the best restaurants in Thornhill to visit?

Super interesting thing I actually never knew until recently: the west part of Thornhill is part of Vaughan, while the east part of Thornhill is part of Markham!

So Thornhill isn’t actually its own city, and it’s rather its own community divided between both Vaughan and Markham.

Thornhill is a super diverse community, with all kinds of different restaurants from different cultures and cuisines.

Here are some of the best restaurants and places to eat in Thornhill, Ontario!

All-you-can-eat-sushi from Aji Sai Japanese Restaurant in Thornhill, Ontario

Aji Sai Japanese Restaurant

My family has been going to Aji Sai for years, and it’s our favourite spot for all-you-can-eat-sushi in York Region.

They have a huge variety of sushi and cooked food, which is great if you like ordering a bunch of different dishes to try!

The service honestly ain’t always very friendly and they do skimp out on some ingredients when you place multiples of the same order, but the food is pretty good and decent quality for AYCE.

I’d recommend ordering everything you want in the first round, then ordering extra stuff if you’re still hungry!

I also like that you order everything from an iPad, and the food comes out super quickly.

LOCATION: 8206 Bayview Ave, Thornhill, ON

Ramona’s Kitchen

In the mood for some good ol’ brunch?

You’ll find plenty of pasta options, whether you’re feeling tomato, vodka, white wine, or cream sauce!

The moody and traditional interior of their restaurant makes it quite romantic, and their front summer patio is lovely as well!

LOCATION: 10 Royal Orchard Blvd, Thornhill, ON


This late-night Korean bar in Thornhill serves up unique dishes you won’t find at other Korean restaurants in the GTA.

They put their own modern twist on Korean street food faves, like their Baked Pollock Roe Omelette, Kiwi Scallop Ceviche, and Crab Jjambbong.

They also serve up soju and makgeolli!

They’re only open 8:30 PM to 2 AM from Tuesday to Sunday, so it’s definitely more of a late-night spot to visit with friends!

You can find them near Yonge & Clark!

Seafood and dim sum is the specialty at Lobster Port, which you can find in Thornhill.

It’s basically a set menu, and the chef makes each dish right in front of you!

You can find Sushi Gin inside the Commerce Gate plaza, right by Highway 7 & Leslie.
