5) Toshi Japanese Restaurant

This spot, while not AYCE, provides amazing sushi at a reasonable price. The food is fantastic and could easily compete with any other Peel Region sushi joint for the title of best Japanese in town. Tracing its roots to humble beginnings in the infamous Shopper’s World, this spot sits up top in the same plaza as the crowned king (Queen) of Shawarma at Hurontario and Bovaird. Do yourself a favor and try this place out. Quality over quantity is sometimes key.

4) August 8

Presentation and cleanliness is key for a dine-in experience and August 8 hit all the right notes in those categories. Located on the lower floor of Bramalea City Centre, August 8 provides Japanese cuisine as well as Chinese. Brampton does not have a lot of spots for dim sum and August 8 was able to bring it to our city in a modern and approachable way. We say approachable because if you've never had dim sum, some of the dishes might seem a little out there, from chicken feet to seafood prepared in ways you may not necessarily be used to. August 8 allows you to enjoy these dishes in a much more modern setting so as to ease you into the idea of trying these foods. By choosing the all-you-can-eat option, the restaurant lets you place orders on iPads, which makes it easy to order at your own leisure. If you go for the dim sum, we highly recommend the cheese wonton as well as the fried eggplant with minced shrimp

3) J. Red & Co

Definitely one of the most modern restaurants in Brampton, from the atmosphere to the innovative menu. Located on Vodden and Main is one of the gems in the city. Chef Jason Rosso is the mastermind behind the menu and if his name sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because he has appeared on such TV shows as Restaurant Makeover, Recipe to Riches and the Marilyn Dennis Show. He is known for offering familiar food with a twist and the menu does not disappoint. What’s better than going out on a date and experimenting with a new style of food you have never tried before? You can try things like smoked cheddar mac ‘n cheese, egg rolls and crispy fried cauliflower 'wings.' Our favourite is the Bob and Doug burger. This place is featured in our cover photo.

2) Terrace on the Green

If you travel to one of Brampton’s most sophisticated and serene restaurants, you’ll get to pair exquisite scenery with a classic dishes. Terrace on the Green, a spacious fine-dining establishment that doubles as a wedding and special occasion venue, offers great ambiance and a classic menu full of tried and true favourites, including a roasted Chilean sea bass with risotto and a very fresh slaw. Although the risotto is somewhat average, the Chilean sea bass is anything but. The dish boasts soft, tender white fish with a crispy, golden top that’s perfectly seasoned. The fish is neither chewy nor dry and the lightly fried surface adds a delectable bit of crunch to an otherwise delicate item. The rest of the menu is full of fine dining classics, so it won't disappoint anyone looking for a traditional dinner. The steak is another highlight on the menu - it's elegant, and served beautifully, topped with mushrooms and served with a flavourful sauce. Talk about fancy.

1) Anokhi

If you have a taste for fine dining and Indian food, you're in luck, because a new Indian restaurant has officially opened its doors in Brampton. Anokhi Fine Dining has taken over the space where Mayura used to be near Hurontario and Ray Lawson, complete with an Anokhi Patisserie next door. As for Anokhi Fine Dining, you'll find Indian restaurant staples on the menu such as chicken tikka, aloo tikki, and chaat. You'll also find such items as coconut and cardamom soup, chicken and lamb kabobs, and even fish tacos topped with spicy eggplant salsa and cumin sour cream. Vegetarian items include paneer tacos, stuffed aloo tikki - an Indian-style potato patty stuffed with cottage cheese and green chillies, and even saag paneer and daal. The mains go on to feature such mouth-watering concoctions as classic butter chicken, fish curry, biryani, and lamb vindaloo. Profiteroles, gulab jamun, and freshly baked tarts are just a few of the dessert options. As for Anokhi Patisserie next door, French pastries meet Indian flavours, according to the restaurant's website.
