Appa’s Original Kitchen

This popular spot specializes in authentic Sri Lankan food and is best known for making the largest and tastiest Lamprais in the city.

Lamprais is a traditional Sri Lankan dish that consists of multiple elements: meats, eggs, curries, veggies, and rice. Not only will you experience authentic flavours by ordering the Lamprais, but an all-around authentic experience as this meal comes packed in a banana leaf – ditching the takeout boxes, plates, and cutlery!

Located at 7595 Markham Road Unit 3, Markham.


Seven Spicy

Seven Spicy specializes in both traditional and fusion Sri Lankan food.

A popular item on their menu is their Chicken Kothu Roti – roti, chicken, egg, onions, and chillies finely chopped together while sauteed on a hot griddle. This is a great introductory dish to Sri Lankan food as it is jam-packed with flavour and enjoyed by most.

They also have space to dine-in upstairs (which can also be booked for events!), or outside on their patio in the summer.

Located at 7595 Markham Road #15, Markham.

Ambiyan Indian Restaurant

This Indian restaurant serves some of the fluffiest Naans in the city – which pairs perfectly with their rich and creamy Butter Chicken!

Located right on Main Street Unionville, you can dine on their patio to enjoy the atmosphere, or eat inside for a more intimate experience.


The Thandur

The Thandur specializes in Indian Fusion cuisine and is equipped with experienced chefs working to take their dishes to the next level.

Although they opened during the peak of the pandemic, they did not fail to deliver amazing flavours which earned them their outstanding online reviews. Their most popular dish is their Butter Chicken Pasta (a fusion of butter chicken curry and pasta) which is a crowd pleaser!

Located at 50 Anderson Avenue, Markham.
