We've been here three times. The food is very good. I'm not a big fan of salmon because it usually tastes fishy, but Makimoto has the best salmon dish ever. It's been spot on each time I've had it. They have a good tempura mango sushi, which is not Japanese at all, but it's wonderful. Service is... read more

Good sushi but a bit too $$$ for a restaurant in Auburn Hills and the location. Don't think I would be able to justify coming back...

Great sushi and fresh at a good price. The shrimp tempura udon is one of my favorites also, and the service is always on point. My go to sushi spot when I'm in Auburn Hills!

Stopped in and picked up some take out while staying in the area. Very good, and very affordable. Will definitely return when back in the area!

I tried Makimoto for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The place runs like a well oiled machine during lunch, with impeccable service and great tasting food. There was someone to take our order, someone else to deliver our appetizer (miso soup & cucumber salad $0), and another person who delivered our order exactly right, and then right on que someone...

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 was so good, tasted fresh and not fishy. Glad we... 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
