About Sushi Kiku:

This Japanese restaurant is located on 230 Commerce Valley Drive East, in Markham, Ontario. Sushi Kiku can be found in Unit 9 in a nice lovely plaza, and with a menu that is a fusion between authentic Japanese cuisine and fresh local ingredients, you get to enjoy a good meal in a pleasant dining atmosphere.

Kiku takes reservations, has a private parking lot for cars only, and packs a takeaway meal but does not do deliveries. There is enough room to fit a large group of people, and it is welcoming to children. The place serves alcohol from a full bar, has free Wi-Fi but no TVs. The menu is traditional Japanese, with seasonal changes that reflect the Japanese tradition of honouring the changing of the seasons.

Sushi Kiku serves lunch and dinner, with late-night fun. It is opened seven days a week, from 11 AM to 10.30 PM, no exceptions. It has been reviewed on Yelp, Trip Advisor, Google Reviews and Facebook, and based on the words from patrons that have been to Kiku, I’ve made the following list of pros and cons.

Sushi Kiku has been in business since 2013, and in that time it has served a lot of people. The décor is very modern, but still in keeping with the traditional Japanese interior. There are seating booths for two and four people, and large seating area divided with crystal drops suspended from the ceiling that remind of rain. There are also private dining areas separated by glass dividers.

The menu is traditional Japanese-meets-fresh seasonal local ingredients. There are lunch and a dinner menu, as well as a separate takeout menu. There is an All-You-Can-Eat menu that features soups, a good selection of salads, fried rice dishes, ramen/udon dishes, different typed of rolls, pizzas, and a good selection of sushi. The interesting part – there is no buffet, but the orders are made on a tablet at the table, and the food is brought to you.

There is a good selection of special sushi rolls like a caterpillar, golden dragon, an angry dragon, killer shrimp, sushi Kiku, calamari tempura, red dragon, green dragon, spider, snow, and California special rolls. Another very popular Japanese speciality is sashimi, and Kiku offers salmon, white tuna, mackerel, red snapper, egg, crab, surf clam, octopus, arugula tuna and beef tataki sashimi dishes. To finish a meal there is an ample selection of Kiku desserts like mango pudding, tiramisu or green tea ice cream.

For the people that don’t have the time to come and enjoy a meal at Kiku, there is a separate takeout menu that offers items like lunch bento box, beef lunch, chicken lunch, salmon lunch, bbq beef rib lunch vegetable tempura lunch and a lot more.

The restaurant serves alcohol, and especially famous and favoured are the many types of sake and Japanese plum wine. Sushi Kiku is most definitely worth the visit if you are into tasting something different.
