Perfect for first time

This was my first time out for true sushi. We went early around 4pm and the place was empty. Our servers were excellent and patient explaining everything to us. We got a bit of everything (spring rolls, pork dumplings, cucumber salad, 5 different types of rolls, some single pieces). Everything... read more

My business associates and I came here for dinner. Food was good and service was very friendly. Waitress made some great recommendations for appetizers that were shared by the table.

I was expecting more from Makimoto based on the reviews I read but my experience was just average. The sushi was very bland. Even one of their specialty rolls- the Yum Yum was just Ok. The overall experience was average.

Delicious! I judge sushi restaurants on the freshness of their fish, their rice, and variety of fish. Let me tell you, Makimoto has it all. I've been going to Makimoto for the last 6 months at least once a week and it is consistently fresh and delicious. If you love California rolls and spicy tuna, or even rolls that are... More

Me and my husband have tried what seems like millions of sushi restaurants around the metro Detroit area. We have found some good and average places but nothing that compares to Makimotos. The service is great, friendly staff and most of all AMAZING sushi! Always fresh ingredients and the salmon teriyaki is to die for! Just try it once and... More

We've been here many times as it is the closest sushi restaurant to our house. The sushi is always fresh and delicious, and they have some really great rolls on their menu that are out of the ordinary. We have been there with friends who have gluten/food allergies, and they have been extremely accommodating/helpful.

I love sushi, and Makimoto did not disappoint. The Edamame were plentiful, the Miso and Cucumber Salad were on point. The sushi was solid. Nothing blew me away, but I think that was more because I let my spouse do the roll selection. I tend to like the more creative while my spouse sticks more to the familiar. Clean place.... More

We only get our sushi fix at Makimoto's. When our son comes in from Austin, TX this is always on his restaurant list. All of their fish is very fresh and flavorful. We enjoy the crunchy crab, spicy tuna and orchard rolls as well as the goyza. Highly recommended if you are looking for a top notch sushi place with... More

We had a tastes for sushi and normally we would go to our local favorite Tokyo Sushi for take out. This time we wanted to sit and make it a date night. Plus we wanted to have a glass of wine. Our local doesn't serve wine. So we searched and decided to try Makimoto. It was only minutes away. we... More
