5 Reasons You Need to Try Edo Japan in Mississauga
Published November 4, 2019 at 3:21 pm
From sushi to ramen to Teriyaki chicken, who doesn’t love Japanese food?
Luckily for us in Mississauga, we’ve got access to one of Canada’s biggest and most popular Japanese franchises in the form of Edo Japan.
For those of you who haven’t been yet, the restaurant is located at Heartland Town Centre (same plaza as Best Buy, located off of Mavis Road just north of Britannia Road West).
While Edo Japan is a relatively new addition to Heartland (it opened in March of this year), it’s already found quick success – owing in large part to its Fresh Take concept, which focuses on serving Japanese-inspired dishes without the long wait. Combining that with its amazing menu and its famous signature Teriyaki sauce, it’s easy to see how Edo Japan has become one of the country’s most successful restaurant chains!
What’re you waiting for? If you haven’t eaten at Edo Japan yet, you’re missing out! Here are five reasons you need to try Edo Japan and taste what all the talk is about:
5. Edo Japan is a massively popular franchise with over 135 locations out west.
If you’re the kind of person who’s reluctant to try new restaurants, why not trust the millions of Canadians who have already come to love it? Since the opening of the first Edo Japan restaurant in Calgary, Alberta back in 1979, the franchise has become a beloved staple of Japanese-inspired cuisine, growing to have more than 135 locations across multiple western provinces.
The chain’s massive success is the driving force behind its recent expansion to eastern Canada, with new Edo Japan locations being opened across Ontario. Fun fact: The Mississauga location at Heartland is Edo Japan’s first street front restaurant in the province!
4. Edo Japan’s signature Teriyaki sauce is so good, you have to taste it to believe it.
Many popular restaurants with hundreds of locations have their own special sauce, and Edo Japan is no exception. Their coveted Teriyaki sauce is one of their several claims to fame, helping put the franchise on the map. What makes it so good? On top of adding flavor and zest to already delicious menu items, the sauce is prepared fresh daily in each restaurant, and is made from a secret, time-honoured recipe that has been tantalizing tastebuds for years. Not convinced? Try some and find out for yourself!
3. Edo Japan’s mobile app makes ordering and picking up your meals a breeze.
Sometimes you just want to skip the hassle of ordering in-store and having to wait in line to get your food. At those times, Edo Japan’s My Edo App is a quick and super convenient option. From the comfort of your phone you can select your favourite menu items, customize your meals, pay in advance, and avoid the line by picking up your food when it’s ready to go. There’s even some bonus rewards for app users, including a free meal for every six meals over $15! Free meal choices include the mouthwatering Teriyaki Chicken, Sukiyaki Beef, Chicken or Beef Noodlefull, or the Easi Sushi Platter. The app is available on Apple and Android devices.
2. Enjoy special deals such as Edo Japan’s Sushi Sundays and Buy One Get One Free meals.
For those eating out on a budget, you’ll be pleased to know Edo Japan has multiple promotional deals to help save you money. Every Sunday is Sushi Sunday, with sushi rolls selling for 50 cents a piece (six pieces minimum*). For example, that means you can snag eight pieces for $4 or twelve for only $6!
There’s also their high-value “buy one get one free” meals on Tuesdays from 2 to 5 pm. When you buy a Beef, Chicken, or Veggie Teriyaki meal, you can get a second one completely free. This deal is on every Tuesday in December (except December 24 and 31), so enjoy it while you can!

1. Choose from a wide selection of Japanese dishes and customize your meal completely to your liking.
If you’re looking for a wide variety of delicious Japanese cuisine, Edo Japan more than delivers. The restaurant prepares food fresh on a 450 degree Teppan grill, searing the ingredients to perfection and locking in flavour.
Forming the cornerstone of the menu are the Sukiyaki Beef (choice cuts of beef with broccoli, carrots, cabbage, mushrooms, Teriyaki sauce, white or brown rice) and the Teriyaki Chicken (grilled chicken with broccoli, carrots, cabbage, mushrooms, Teriyaki sauce, white or brown rice). Other must-try dishes include Udon and ramen soup, Hawaiian Chicken, Sizzling Shrimp, and fresh sushi options such as California and Dynamite Rolls.
Looking for vegetable-based options? No problem! Edo Japan offers delicious grilled vegetables — consisting of fresh cut carrots, broccoli, bok choy, red peppers, and snow pears – on your choice of white rice, brown rice, or Udon noodles.
Speaking of choice, the menu comes with a ton of customization options so you can get your meal exactly to your liking, whether you want extra Teriyaki Sauce, no mushrooms, or any other aspect of your meal personalized. Almost every single meal on the menu can be customized, and over 40% of Edo Japan’s customers decide to personalize their menu. How’s that for “the customer is always right”?
Next time you’re at Heartland, don’t hesitate to stop by the restaurant. Remember, when you’re at Edo Japan, you’re an Edodachi (a friend)!
