Sushi from Araya Sushi in Main Street Markham in Markham, Ontario

Araya Sushi

This beautiful sushi restaurant is located in the historic Main Street Markham neighbourhood, and it’s such a gem.

Adam and I visited for our anniversary, and it was the stunning interior that made Adam pick this spot!

The sushi was pretty great, and the service was also fantastic.

The Appetizer Sashimi was quite fresh, and we really enjoyed the Salmon Pressed Sushi!

Aside from sushi, they also have a good selection of Korean dishes, and we’ll definitely be trying their Korean fried chicken next time we visit!

LOCATION: 6040 Hwy 7, Markham, ON

Baben Sushi

This little takeout sushi shop shares a space with a bakery, and you can find them by Esna Park & Denison.

Their sashimi is pretty fresh, and they’ve got plenty of unique and colourful rolls like their Esna Roll (with torched mixed fish, mango, crab meat, avocado, spicy sauce) and King Roll (with king crab meat, green onion, fish roe, spicy sauce, avocado, cucumber).

They even have seasonal specials, like their Snowflakes Roll and Black King Roll!

They’ve also got a good selection of party trays at decent prices, like their Specialty Mix Trays ($88 for 70 pieces or $128 for 120 pieces).

Note that it’s a takeout-only spot, and you can order ahead on their website for pickup!

You can find them near Highway 7 & McCowan!

Lunch bento boxes from Gal's Sushi in Markham, Ontario

Gal’s Sushi

I’ve been going to Gal’s Sushi since I was in high school, and it never disappoints.

The sushi is pretty good, and I love the Korean side dishes that come in the bento boxes!

They’ve got both Japanese and Korean food on the menu, so you can have a taste of both.

The lunch specials are actually quite good – the bento boxes above were $12.99 (sashimi and sushi) and $15.99 (sushi and bulgogi)!

There’s also a ton of seating inside the restaurant, and I love that it’s all booth seating to make it more cozy and intimate.

You can find them right by Highway 7 & Warden!

LOCATION: 3621 Highway 7 #106, Markham, ON

J San Sushi & Market in Markham, Ontario

J San Sushi & Market

J San is part takeout restaurant and part market, and you’ll find some of the freshest fish in Markham here.

They’ve got plenty of sushi rolls (including torched) on the menu, but the make-your-own-sashimi-box and make-your-own-donburi is definitely what you’ll want to come here for!

Both make-your-own options start with a base of sushi rice, and you can add your choice of toppings a la carte.

From o-toro (blue fin tuna belly), to seabream, so uni (sea urchin), they’ve got tons of topping options to choose from that you typically won’t find at other sushi places.

It’s nice, because you can just add all your favourite things to the box and pay per piece!

They’ve also got seating inside if you’re looking to dine in!

LOCATION: 3365 Steeles Ave E Unit B01, Toronto, ON

Hana Don Japanese Cuisine & Bar

Hana Don serves up sushi at their gorgeous restaurant, though donburi is actually the specialty here.

Donburi is a Japanese dish where things are served atop of rice, so it’s kind of like sushi in a bowl!

They import their fresh and seasonal ingredients directly from Japan, and you’ll find dishes like their Aburi Don (with seared fish) and Hokkaido Don (with uni, ikura, and Hokkaido scallop).

You can find them at Woodbine & 16th in the same plaza as T&T, and they’ve also got a location in North York!

IKON Sushi Bar & Lounge

IKON is known for having fresh and delicious premium sashimi, which you can have in one of their platters or in their donburi (rice bowls).

You’ll find a variety of platters you can choose from, and the Salmon Deluxe Sushi & Roll is perfect for salmon lovers.

It features a mix of fresh and torched salmon nigiri and rolls, and it’s v delicious.

And if you’re dining in, you can enjoy a glass from their delicious selection of sake.

Located at First Markham Centre, which is across from First Markham Place, they’re kind of hidden, but totally worth the visit.

Toyosu Markham

Toyosu is actually a takeout sushi spot in Markham, but their sashimi is super fresh and great quality.

They’re actually only open from Friday through Sunday, and they close whenever they run out of fish.

It’s a little bit pricy, but it’s definitely worth it for the quality.

You can find them inside the Langham Square Plaza above T&T, and you’ll also want to pre-order at least a day ahead!

LOCATION: 8339 Kennedy Rd. Unit 2660, Markham, ON

Yin Sushi Market at Langham Square in Markham

Yin Sushi Market

You can find Yin Sushi Market in the Langham Square plaza as well, and it’s also a takeout-only spot.

Their menu is a little pricy for being just a takeout spot, but their sashimi is super fresh and their sushi is delicious!

KAKA All You Can Eat Sushi in Markham, Ontario

KaKa All You Can Eat

If you’re looking for the best all-you-can-eat sushi in Markham, KAKA is it.

Just because you’re eating AYCE, doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on quality.

KAKA serves up delicious and great quality sushi alongside izakaya-inspired dishes, including everything from donburi, to skewers, to maki rolls.

They’ve got classic maki rolls like Black Dragon and Dynamite, as well as unique specialty rolls like their Honey Mustard Salmon Roll and Fried Chicken Roll.

They even have aburi nigiri and aburi oshi sushi, which you don’t usually find at AYCE sushi restaurants.

If you haven’t heard of aburi oshi sushi, it’s torched and pressed sushi, and it literally tastes like heaven on earth – especially with the caramelization of the sauces!

KAKA All You Can Eat Sushi in Markham

Of course, dessert is always the best part of AYCE, and my fave dessert item here is the matcha crème brûlée.

My family and I visited for my dad’s birthday and tried the Christmas set menu, and the sushi was definitely our favourite part of the entire meal.

The interior of the restaurant is also lovely, with plenty of booth seating!

Zen Japanese Restaurant

If you’re in the mood for some omakase, Zen Japanese Restaurant is definitely worth visiting.

They have a few different omakase options, whether you’re looking to just enjoy the chef’s choice of sushi or a set course meal.

If you prefer to order a la carte, they’ve got some delicious and unique menu items like their wagyu options, Kamo Roast (roasted duck), and Lobster Tempura!
