Markham Sushi | Top 5 Markham Sushi Restaurants

Here are the 5 best sushi restaurants in Markham Ontario – November 2011

  1. Tsukiji Sushi Village – Tsukiji is by far our favourite sushi restaurant in Markham. Neither the prices nor the taste can be beat! The rolls are the perfect size, without too much rice – they also roll most of the maki rolls in just a little bit of tempura flake (other sushi places should learn from this) – it’s one of the only places you can find a perfect spicy salmon roll for $4 – great prices on sashimi a la cart as well. They do pickup and dine in and their frequent-buyer program adds up to a free premium roll fast.
  2. Saporro Sushi – This is one of the best places to go for lunch – the bill usually comes to around $13 per person with tax and tip, but you get way more than enough food. The fish is fresh, the staff are friendly and you can do lunch in about 30 minutes.
  3. Sushi Tei – Sushi Tei is  a bit pricier and you don’t get what you pay for every time, but when you do – it’s a great experience. The rolls are good, and the presentation is probably the best in Markham.
  4. Gal’s Sushi – A classic with good value and great variety
  5. A Tate of Japan – This is a genuine Markham experience. We don’t recommend this place based on the sushi alone – it’s the whole atmosphere – especially around the tapinyaki tables. This place is fabulous and their chefs are amazing – it’s a “Must Try”

Waterloo Sushi | Top 5 Waterloo Sushi Restaurants

Here are the 5 best sushi restaurants in Waterloo – September 2011

Some are all you can eat, others are better for sushi take out. Maps are provided when you click the restaurant title links. The Restaurants begin with the best (or our favourite – everything is just our opinion).

  1. Tomu Sushi (Dine in and Take out, not all-you-can-eat)
    • This is now definitely the best sushi waterloo. It is a great price and absolutely delicious. It’s not that close to campus, but it is totally worth the trip. You get all kinds of free Korean goodies when you dine in, and you even get miso soup (and sometimes salad) with your takeout. This is both the best tasting and the best value sushi in the waterloo area.
  2. Sakura Island (Dine In, Take Out, NOT All-You-Can-Eat)
    • Second best sushi waterloo. The sashimi is a little expensive unless you get it in one of their combos – so make sure to do that. They have great lunch combos as well – try the spicy salmon lunch, lots of food for about 10 bucks.
  3. Sushi 99(Dine in , Take Out, All you can eat)
    • We’re really happy with this new addition to the Waterloo Sushi line up. If you are looging for all you can eat and want to try something a little different than Ye’s – we say give Sushi 99 a shot!
  4. Nikko Nikko(Dine In, Take Out, NOT All-You-Can-Eat)
    • This sushi restaurant is technically in Kitchener, but it’s worth the short drive.
  5. Yummyaki (Dine In, Take Out, All-You-Can-Eat, also have regular menu)
    • Yummyaki has a great all you can eat menu. The sushi is good – fresh fish and not too much rice in the rolls.
  6. Ye’s Sush (Dine In, Take Out, All-You-Can-Eat, also have regular menu)
    • Ye’s is probably the best known sushi restaurant in Waterloo. It’s famous for the all you can eat menu. Their is also a Ye’s in Kitchener (the original.) The Kitchener location is better, they seem to use less rice in their rolls
  7. Ye’s Sush (Dine In, Take Out, All-You-Can-Eat, also have regular menu)
    • Ichiban is new to our list – good food, good value, great staff
  8. Iron Chef (Dine In, Take Out, NOT All-You-Can-Eat)
    • Iron Chef is located in the University plaza, so if you are just coming from a class at UW it’s definitely the most convenient. They have great lunch menus. Ordering sushi a la cart from this restaurant is little preicey. Their Miso soup doesn’t have much to it. Still a great choice for a quick lunch.

That’s our list! Feel free to leave us a comment. Let us know if you’ve found another waterloo sushi restaurant that belongs in the list!
