Eating @ Kiu

11:58 AM

Got word of a new restaurant showing up in Markham from a colleague who lives around the Downtown Markham area. This area was just plain land but recently, there have been a lot of development with restaurants and a giant VIP Cineplex.

Kiu restaurant is a collaboration of Ramen Isshin's executive Chef and Owner Koji Zenimaru and Jason Matsubara. This restaurant is located on the 2nd floor of this giant cineplex mall. The restaurant is very large that can fit about 40-50 people.  It's very trendy with many seating including regular walnut table tops, black leather chairs and booths along the window and bar seats by both the sashimi chef and noodle areas.  The reception area is huge, and you're immediately greeted by very friendly staff. There were lots of staff constantly checking up on us to make sure we were okay...

Food: 4/5
Service: 4.5/5
Pricing: $15 and up

Food Comments:
Ramen Isshin is well recognized for their high quality to ramen noodles downtown. I'm just so glad they decided to make a location up north. The sushi bar and omakase options weren't available at lunch time. From their initial yelp reviews, the sushi quality isn't so good (still a soft opening) ... Therefore, my colleagues and I decided to try their ramen noodles. I ordered:

Roaster Garlic Shoyu Ramen ($11)

  • Isshin roast garlic oil, bamboo shoots, nori, marinated soft boiled egg, pork belly cha shu, green onions & thin wavy noodles
The ramen noodles were perfect to taste and texture. The garlic soup was very rich and creamy. The pork belly were good but thinly sliced :( I would definitely come back again for their ramen and maybe at a later time for their sushi.
