Best sushi around!

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.

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

Our local doesn't serve wine. So we searched and decided to try Makimoto. It was only minutes away. we... More

This is certainly one of the best sushi restaurants I have eaten in outside of Japan. All the fish was very fresh and tasted very, very good. The chef made me a roll with tuna, shrimp, spicy crab salad and wrapped with mango, that was exceptional. Service was very good and ambiance was welcoming. I will certainly eat here again.

I was introduced to Makimoto a few months ago and I've been back for lunch on several occasions. Miso soup and sweet cucumbers are served with every order, but I always order a side of seaweed salad in addition. I've tried a variety of the raw options and all have been nothing less than delicious! Very easy to run up... More

Great great great experience. The ginger sushi roll's flavor combo was out of this world tasty. All of it was so tasty! Even the complimentary sweet cucumber salad and miso soup they serve you while your sushi is being prepared. I went with my boyfriend who is not a fan of sushi, he left a changed man though this time.... More
