Ivan became fascinated with sushi when he was just 15 years old. He discovered a way to maintain this enthusiasm and began working at Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong at a young age. 

Ivan gained more knowledge about Japanese culture, values and culinary practices while working in those kitchens. Most importantly, he learned the qualities required to emerge as a good chef.

Becoming one of the most famous sushi chef in Markham

In 2020, Ivan decided to pursue his dream. With the encouragement of his friends and family, Sushi Umi was created. In order to let people from various backgrounds enjoy the Omakase experience, he chose Markham as the location for his new restaurant.

The beauty of Omakase

With Omakase, diners can enjoy the chef's selection of rare sushi. It's an opportunity to experience something different that folks aren't accustomed to. Sushi Umi's team commits 100% to every single piece of sushi that is served, and the love and passion can be felt in every bite. The hosts recommend the best sake pairings for the seasonal delicacies. 

Every time a customer visits, they will be able to try something new because the menu is based on the fish's seasonal availability.
