I visited is place with a friend of mine who lives near by She's been talking about how amazing this Sushi place is and it's quite unique. I had to give this place a go. We visited in mid January and this place really did live up to the hype. The 'maki' selection was superb. Especially the combination with cheese.... More

Great place to go & eat, personally I think this is one of the best places for lunch as they do the famous Japanese bento boxes with a huge array of fillings; sushi, tempura etc. Or if you want to eat at the Sushi bar & drink cold Kirin, the staff are more than happy for you to do so!... More

A very safe menu with a large number of cooked dishes and rice that's never overcooked but can be a bit underseasoned. Nevertheless, the quality is dependable and it all tastes good. It's also the best of its type for a decent distance.

Went here on a rainy evening to satisfy our Japanese food craving and came away very pleased. Service was polite and very quick. We ordered the chef's special sushi and sashimi platter which was excellent; thick slices of good quality fish, we were very happy to be given fatty tuna! Our mains came quickly. The Udon was a little al... More

Once again this restaurant surpasses all our expectations;. We live over 100 miles away (used to live near the restaurant hence how we know about it!) however my partner wanted to surprise me for our anniversary and knowing that this is my favourite sushi place, called in an order 4 days before to be sure that he could collect it...

If mass produced supermarket sushi is putting you off Japanese food head to Makiyaki. The sushi here is excellent but if bored of that then the eel on rice is succulent and meaty and the seaweed salad (wakame) is delightful both in terms of texture and flavour.

Full review and photography here: http://www.thecutlerychronicles.com/2013/07/makiyaki-south-wimbledon-review.html Extract: 'And onto the maki (sushi rolls). There’s a long list available to choose from, with such creative names as ‘scallop volcano’, ‘spider’, ‘rock ‘n roll’ and ‘999’, the latter an incarnation with the word ‘spicy’ present twice in its short menu description and so its name perhaps an indication of the dialling action...

Local to our home, we visit Makiyaki pretty regularly and are never disappointed with the food or the service. Recommend the Couple's Combo and the Spicy California Rolls - delicious.
