Good Ramen

I am always after a good bowl of ramen on a cold night when I feel like I am coming down with a cold. This did the trick and was quickly delivered!

This place is great for some Japanese snacks and for warming up with some ramen. It has decent prices and service. The staff is somewhat aloof but it is enjoyable for people watching in the midst of this tourist-hipster neighborhood. My personal favorites are the gyoza and tori kara age

Despite japanese food being quite en vogue in Berlin right now, Makoto manages to resist the temptation to present a staple dish as something extraordinary. But what they do, they do right on the spot: the Ramen tastes handmade like only freshly made noodles do and the broth is hearty and tasty. I tried the Omusoba as an alternative to... More

This restaurant is bigger than it looks: there is a back room not easily visible from the street. There are also tables outside, as seems to be common in Berlin. The tables are long and shared, so it is not suitable for a romantic meal or one where you wish for privacy! Having said that, the food is delicious and... More

I like this place for original and good price/quality meals. I like its location and decoration. The only problem could be that it closes quite early even on weekends. (I mean round 22/22.30)

Makoto is a good place to go for a quick Japanese meal. The prices, service and food are all average. Lunch for two with drinks was a reasonable €23. There are a number of long tables where you sit with strangers. You'll leave feeling like you've eaten, but not eaten anything particularly good.

The Makoto is a very little place with a front room containing few tables and a further back room with some more lanrge tables where random people sit together. The ramen is fantastic and probably this is the reason why the place is so busy, while we were there for lunch I think about 3-4 couples and groups were turned... More

We were intending on eating at Monsieur Vuong (popular Vietnamese restaurant on Alte Schönhauser Str) but there was a long queue outside the restaurant and it was raining. We noticed this appealing Japanese restaurant, Makoto, opposite. It was busy but there wasn't a queue so we decided to eat here instead. We didn't regret it, it was very good. We... More
