Hidden gem in highway 7 are. Continental cuisine and decor remind me of a brighter version of hothouse cafe downtown. Had sandwiches, sweet potato fries (superior to regular fries there), chicken skewers. Skip the Alfredo sauce (it was meaty tasting). On the pricey side. Lunch menu is approx $10-$12 per sandwich and add your choice of side for $3-$4. $20 for lunch is kinda pricey in my opinion. Love the option o being able to customize dinner (pick entree and sides separately) so everyone can get exactly what they want. Worth the visit for special occasion and ambiance.
Pretty good variety of hotpot items to choose from. Items are displayed against wall open refrigerated area and in sMall amounts that are constantly replenished which is probably why it's so fresh. Lot's of vegetarian items and they also have a dessert bar. Price is approx. $45 all in on week night. Soup bases are limited to 6 or so but food freshness price and efficient advice makeup for this. Would return here as a regular.

“Named Dryclean Depot in plaza on south side of 16th, excellent service”
Clothing was dry cleaned very well (not too starchy), price was excellent (average is $5 per piece). Best thing is that owner said 'I hope to see you again' and actually seemed to appreciate my business. How about that? A company that actually asked for business! I really enjoyed the personal service provided by this dry cleaner. Would definately return here.
Excellent coffee, very smooth. Open from 7am to 7pm I believe. It's hidden off of Main St. Markham (just north of a certain Seattle coffee house that has taken over the city like a plague). And, they have wireless too! Cute little shop and perfect little hide away. They have lots of healthy food options, sandwiches, ice cream too. You can spend the whole day here working on a project, enjoy your gourmet coffee and have all your meals in this one spot. Would definately return here.
Excellent instruction. I haven't felt pain like that in a long time - Jason did an excellent job waking up my muscles. Studios are upstairs. Only recommendation would be for them to make the changeroom doors automatically close as when they are open, the men/women's washroom are virtually indistinguishable. Also, entrance is a bit narrow and crowded but not much they can do about it. Must try and will return.
Went here for all you can eat lunch for $14pp. Salmon sushi, seaweed salad, edamame, beef shortribs were very good but maki rolls e.g. dragon, rainbow, tempura were missing ingredients like avocado. How can a 'special' maki roll miss a primary ingredient such as avocado and cucumber? Also, was not really impressed with their tempura batter. Would try other places before returning here.
This is the theatre that looks like a spaceship when you're approaching it from the highway. Outdoor shops and Ikea are nearby but not super close. Would not return here unless in the area and if planning to shop.

“Clean, big screens, healthy food options, great popcorn”
Theatre is conveniently located at First Markham Place where there are tonnes of choices on asian cuisine. Theatre is so-so, slightly better than average, popcorn is also okay, but return here for convenience of a quick meal before or after movie time and relatively easy to find parking.

“Old school chinese restaurant complete with chinese lanterns and silk jackets”
Food quality is better than average here. Dim sum was delicious, average price of $20 pp for lunch. The best part of this restaurant is not the yummy food but the decor. The restaurant has big pillars and classic chinese lanterns and the wait staff wear chinese-style silk jackets. This place reminds me of Hsin Kwong downtown outside of Kensington market (with the big stone lions), minus the haunting/ghost folklore.

Went here for lunch and services was fast and quality excellent. As usual with most AYCE, sashimi is not included on the menu, for lunch anyway. Price is $11 for lunch all week. Would return here as a regular.
Was not too impressed by the venu, it looks like it's run by a bunch of students and the place in dire need of a reno. Was impressed by the choice of broths to choose from - 7 diff. types and they were quite flavorful. Menu and ordering method wasn't clear - basically you choose either seafood or beef as your main entree/plate and if you wanted more of this main dish it is a la carte. However, the rest of the hot pot options are included in the price. Price is approx $20 pp and if special broth is chosen, its another $4. Ice tea or plum juice is included. It was approx $30 pp without alcohol. Service is kurt and a bit abrupt. One of the dishes seemed spoilt. Seafood and tofu, which spoil easily, were fresh and lamb was delish. Still, even though I give this place 3 starts, I would return here because I didn't end up with a stomach ache which usually happens after any hot pot.

Richmond Hill, ON
Had a handroll set from this place and it was express and amazingly good. The set normally includes california, salmon and cucumber handrolls but they were ok with swapping the cucumber for another california, all for $11. What a deal! Awesome flavor and fresh ingredients. Would definately return here.
Location: 1st light south of Hwy 7, off Kennedy Rd in Peach tree plaza
Full restaurant with booming night club middle-eastern music. Service is very fast, quality of food is very good. Portions are significant. Large plate of shish kebabs / main with side of fries or one of 3 salads (israeli, green leaf or greek). Highly recommend this place for freshness, quality and value. Really enjoyed that they kept the salt under control.
Dishes between $8 and $12. We had crab & fish maw soup, veggie stirfry chow mein, rice noodle roll, spicy tiger shrimp & chicken & salt fish rice and bill came out to even $40, with left overs. Food quality simular to the Finch/Leslie location, except this location seems newer. Servers are very efficient and will respond even though you are not part of 'their' table. Very pleased and will return here as a regular.
Was in the mood for soup noodles so decided to try this place out and it did not disappoint. Piping hot soup noodles with very flavourful, thick soup which is different than standard asian soup noodles. Dishes are between $6 & $15. Would return here to try out other dishes, probably with someone who knows how to order from the chinese menu.
First saw this pottery in One of a Kind Show and am itching for the chance to buy more. Beautiful olive trays, salt pigs and assorted sized bowls. They have several colors like browns and greens but my favorite is the cobalt blue pottery items. Check out their items on their website www.hilbornpottery.com/hilborn/produc...
This place has the best marinated meats in sealed bags making transport, freezeing and thawing a breeze. It is in their back fridges and sold in $10 or $20 packs. A $10 bag is enough for 2 average adults and maybe a bit for lunch. Based on the Kalbi alone, it's worth the visit. Plus it is independently owned by a cute little philipino family - support your local business owner!
This shop has always had great cuts and buisness / business casual wear for the slim and trim. Styles always up to date with what's in style, but with a more traditional and upscale twist which makes it worth the extra cost. When they have a sale, stock up. Service is superb and sincere. Can get a lovely top, normally $60, that you would pay for regularly prices so when they have a sale, stock up!
