Best sushi restaurants in Markham


Hibiki Japanese Cuisine

I was a huge fan of Inatei in Richmond Hill back in the day, but it’s since closed down.

I recently discovered that Hibiki was their OG sister location, and it’s located on Highway 7 by Main Street Unionville.

They serve up some of the freshest sashimi in Markham, and they have all kinds of authentic Japanese dishes on the menu!

It’s definitely a place to take someone if you’re looking to impress them 😉

If you’re also looking for a fun activity to do in the area, you can do a walking food tour in Main Street Unionville where you get to learn the history behind the neighbourhood while eating bites from different restaurants!

LOCATION: 4450 Hwy 7, Unionville, ON


IKON Sushi Bar & Lounge at First Markham Centre in Markham, Ontario

IKON Sushi Bar & Lounge

I’d driven by IKON many times before, but I actually decided to give it a try after seeing a couple of people post about it on Instagram.

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

Try their IKON Chirashi Don – it features the chef’s selection of cubed sashimi with tamago, cucumber, ikura, and ponzu sauce!

If you’re looking for rolls, try their Supreme Roll with otoro and uni, or their Spikon Roll, which features a salted egg sauce.

They also wrap their takeout in fabric, a Japanese method called furoshiki, so you can keep it and reuse it for other things!

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

They’re closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, and they open in the late afternoon on Wednesdays, so do take note of that if you’re planning a visit!

LOCATION: 11 Fairburn Dr. Unit 20, Markham, ON


Gal's Sushi in Markham, Ontario

Gal’s Sushi

I’ve been going to Gal’s Sushi since I was in high school, and my BFF and I have always loved it here.

The sushi is fantastic, 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!

LOCATION: 3621 Highway 7 #106, Markham, ON


Mi-Ne Sushi

Mi-Ne has plenty of great bento boxes and lunch specials available for takeout, plus plenty of awesome signature maki rolls to enjoy if you dine in.

Mi-Ne Sushi has one location in Markham and one in Aurora.

KAKA All You Can Eat sushi restaurant in Toronto

KaKa All You Can Eat

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

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

They have everything from donburi, to maki rolls, to torched and pressed sushi, and it’s all amaze.

You’ll find them at First Markham Place, and pricing is $34.95 per adult on weekdays and $37.95 on weekends and holidays.

Poké bowl at The Poké Box Toronto

The Poké Box

Okay, so I know poké isn’t sushi, but the way poké bowls are made in Toronto is kind of like sushi in a bowl!

If you don’t know what poké is, it’s a Hawaiian dish of marinated fish usually paired with rice.

The non-traditional way of making poké includes all kinds of Japanese toppings like masago and nori, as well as all kinds of other toppings and sauces!

I usually grab the Lava Blaze or the Poké Box bowls at The Poké Box – they’re amazing.

You can find The Poké Box at Highway 7 & Woodbine, and they have a few other locations downtown and in Waterloo.

LOCATION: 3000 Hwy 7, Markham, ON


Poké bowls at Poké Guys Toronto

Poké Guys

Poké Guys is another one of my fave poké bowl spots in Toronto, and you can also find them in Downtown Markham.

You can choose between their signature bowls or build your own, and they have a nice selection of marinated raw tuna and salmon to choose from.

They’re super generous with their sashimi, and they have some of the best sauces for poké bowls!

You can also visit them in downtown Toronto (near the Eaton Centre) or in Vaughan.

LOCATION: 8110 Birchmount Rd. Unit 10, Markham, ON
