Why you should visit Sushi UmI

Ivan, our head chef, originally from Hong Kong, found his place in Markham after working in numerous sushi restaurants for several years. He opened Sushi Umi in 2020, and for the tasting menu for the omakase, he exclusively uses the highest-quality fish.

Omakase became popular in Japan in the 1990s and is now available all over the world. Although having an Omakase Course in a sushi restaurant may seem like gambling, it usually signifies that you have been served the best seasonal meals and specials by the chefs.

Luxurious dining for the locals in Markham

It can be difficult to get to the Toronto downtown core if you live and work in Markham. You almost don't want to go when you consider taking the DVP for 2 hours back and forth, and then having to fight for parking when you get there. This is why you should visit Sushi Umi, which is located near downtown Markham. We provide a premium experience, so you can save your valuable time and spend it enjoying your meal.

Visiting the GTA and Markham
Check out the Best Omakase

It could be challenging for a visitor from another Canadian province to find Omakase in your hometown. To perfect the art of Omakase, chefs must undergo years of training. The dinner reflects the knowledge that was gained over a long period. The GTA is home to the majority of Omakase restaurants in Canada. If you are visiting the GTA or travelling to Markham for business, stop at Sushi Umi for Omakase. The Omakase experience is more than just a meal; it's something you'll never forget.


Sushi Umi is the place to go if you appreciate indulging in your food and having an intimate gathering while getting attention from the chef.
