Where To Eat In Markham

No longer a ‘sleepy’ suburb of Toronto, in just the past decade or two Markham has emerged as a cosmopolitan center of culture and diversity. In addition to the city’s self-claimed position as Canada’s Most Diverse City, nowhere is the transformation more evident than in the range of tastes reflected in the city’s restaurants and food scene.

But that leaves even the hungriest of us trying to answer the same question: where to eat in Markham?

Great Places to Eat in Markham

We’re no experts, and we haven’t eaten in every restaurant in Markham, but the following spots keep coming up in discussions of favourite eateries.

  1. Touro Churrascaria Brazilian Steakhouse & Wine Bar – If you haven’t experienced a Brazilian steakhouse, this is as real as it gets. IN addition to the steaks, Touro’s diners enjoy select cuts of pork, poultry, and lamb, as well as seafood.
  2. The School Restaurant – The School has been a landmark restaurant in Markham for decades. Housed in an authentic schoolhouse built in 1888, The School offers fine dining for steak and seafood lovers.
  3. Smash Kitchen and Bar – One of the newer arrivals in Markham, Smash still has that ‘hidden gem’ appeal. Offering a somewhat more relaxed atmosphere than Peter’s or The School, Smash appeals to the ‘upscale casual’ crowd with offerings like coal-fired oven pizza, a Tuscan chicken sandwich and molten chocolate lava cake for dessert.
  4. Ambiyan – Considered the be one of the best Indian restaurants in Markham, Ambiyan’s Main Street Unionville location offers options for cozy romantic dinner, special occasions, patio dining and even business meetings. The garlic naan appetizer is popular and the butter chicken seems to get rave reviews from everyone.
  5. Zen Japanese Restaurant – If you like sushi, you might like it even more after enjoying the authentic options at Zen. If your tastes go to hardier fare, their soft-shelled crab is slowly cooked for over 12 hours and served with lemon.
