I came here on a recommendation from a few coworkers, one of which is Japanese! First impression-interesting decor but unique for sure. Kinda quiet, and a little uninviting. Food-barely so-so:( We ordered several skewers (shrimp, cuttlefish, scallops and beef tongue) they were ALL very small...More

Those late night dates or nights with a lot going on, always led us to Donburi, the home of the tastiest rice bowl you will ever eat! When they changed ownership (or at least, proprietors) in 2014, we were worried that the top quality and...More

I think this restaurant attracts a lot of otakus and weabos, especially since they have anime theme and show anime shows on their tv screens. And it's run by Chinese. With that said, I like coming to this place for the food. Lunch deals are...More

Service was fast and friendly but I found the food to be too greasy. Soup and salad were good though. Place was very clean. Didn't have to ask to get water refill. Won't be back.

Established in 2013. Donburi's first store opened in Markham Ontario. Finding her love for food and Japanese cuisine in particular, Irene Lee, decide to create Japanese home style dishes that can be readily accessible to the public. The rice bowl is a very traditional staple in many Japanese households and Irene felt this under-served niche deserved a lot more attention than it deserved among the sushi and ramen joints around the GTA. Among the many variations of dons (rice bowls), Donburi also offers small izakaya style appetizers and skewers. We are excited and proud of our brand and neighbourhood connections and we hope everyone will enjoy their time in the restaurant.
