I had the pleasure of visiting and dining at one of Greater Toronto Area’s newest all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants. This one is called KAKA All You Can Eat and it’s located at the plaza strip of First Markham Place in Markham (Highway 7 and Woodbine). This restaurant used to be Sense Modern Japanese (I blogged about it here). I had gone here for lunch and noticed that while the sushi was good, there were very few customers and people who knew about it. The manager and owner noticed this so they decided to revamp the entire restaurant and turn it into an upscale and high-quality all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant instead. The interior decor is exactly the same as Sense Modern Japanese, which is fantastic because they are so beautifully decorated with Japanese lanterns, comfortable booth seats with soft pillows, a big wide sushi bar, and an all-around comfortable and classy atmosphere.
I was very excited to try this restaurant out because ever since I heard about it revamped as KAKA All You Can Eat, I’ve been seeing friends eat here on social media and wondered what the hype was.
Closs of Sweven Media contacted me for a complimentary visit and I was so thrilled because he made my experience so amazing and 10 out of 10. Thank you, Closs!
My friend Angel and I arrived at 6 p.m. at the time that we had reserved for. It was a Sunday evening and the restaurant was packed! There were so many people waiting at the front of the restaurant for a table. Luckily, because we are reservations and Closs was waiting for us, we got our own table immediately.
Closs explained a little background about KAKA All You Can Eat and also about how they use iPads to order food here (I’ve been to Spring Sushi downtown that also uses iPads for customers to order food). It makes the entire all-you-can-eat experience very seamless and fun because you don’t have to wait on a server to take your order and you can eat exactly what you ordered on the iPad. We were also introduced to Jason, a server who would also be looking out for us for the night.
Closs recommended a few favourites for us to try, including the octopus mustard sushi, spring egg, torched sushi, and several types of dessert. I was very excited and Angel and I ordered a number of food right off the bat.
I am used to all-you-can-eat sushi places where the food usually takes upwards of 5-15 minutes to arrive so we ordered a lot just in case that the food would take a long time to arrive. To our (pleasant) surprise, the food arrived within 1-2 minutes after I clicked the “submit” button on the iPad! I was so impressed! Our food dishes came out from the kitchen one after another and so quickly that soon our two-person table was filled up to the brim. Please see this picture. Isn’t it crazy! We had to quickly eat and move some items on to one plate in order to make room for everything because all the food arrived so quickly. This was such a breath of fresh air for an all-you-can-eat restaurant. Great job!
The food was delicious. We ordered a number of different dishes from each category: sushi, sashimi, ramen, baked dishes, skewers, starters, and more.
Throughout the night, Closs checked up on us to see how we were doing and even sat down with us for a little bit to chat. It was a really nice evening and I really appreciated Closs’s attention and attentiveness towards us to make sure that we had a very fun and enjoyable evening. Thank you so much! 🙂 I also got to meet the manager, Irene, and she was extremely grateful and pleasant as well.
Before we left, we had to try their desserts. Again, Closs was able to recommend me some must-trys, including the two types of chocolate ganache that were made in-house (the owner of the restaurant actually specializes in desserts like these!). We were so stuffed by this point, but there is always, always room for dessert. 🙂 Everything arrived quickly and Closs and Irene personally made sure that we got all of our desserts that we wanted. Thank you again!
As I left that night, I was so grateful for this opportunity to try KAKA All You Can Eat and to be able to help them spread the word about this great sushi all you can eat restaurant. Go check them out! They are not your ordinary or typical all-you-can-eat where the sushi quality is mediocre or where they try to fill you up on rice from the sushi. Here, you can order each piece separately (you can order just one piece). This way, you can try a lot of different types of food from the menu. You really have to come more than once in order to try out everything. It’s so worth it! 🙂
