First time here for dinner. Not much of a switch from lunch sushi wise. Different seafood and hibachi for dinner service. All the fish is fresh for sushi. Good selection of salads and desserts also

Just got picked up from the airport after spending our weekend in Nashville and we were famished. Decided to hit up the buffet. Our first time there, ($21) bucks per person. Lots of variety and many were good but in my opinion not worth the price per person. Would I go back, yes but without the kids. Lots of tables... More

If you like high quality sushi and all you can eat crab legs, this is the place for you. We go there every week and the food is always consistent, abundant and delicious. They constantly put out fresh food and also has a small hibachi. We have never been disappointed eating here.

For several times, I have been to Makkoli and every time I dine here, it is like the first. Always, I look forward to savor the wide array of sushi, seafood, General Tso's Chicken and fresh oysters, among others. I find Makkoli clean and the staff are friendly. My daughter just called for our reservation to celebrate the birthday of... More

We all enjoyed it. The sushi is good (not excellent) and the place is nothing fancy but for the cost of 14$ it's a very good value. Everything was fresh and the Chinese food was good and not too oily.

I go here almost every weekend & love it! My boyfriend and I are addicted! My only problem is they should offer more crab legs because they put out so little & people grab them fast & they also take too Long to put them out. other than that one complaint they're amazing & I can't wait to go again...

The atmosphere is in need of an overhaul. The walls need repair the furniture looks worn. Its showing its age. The quality of the food has gone down significantly. When I asked to speak with the manager regarding how cold the food was the hostess replied I'm NOT the owner!
