Hibachi dinner was excellent and cooked to perfection. Sushi was hand prepared and was awesome. Liked the bananas on the flat top to end the meal. Very good!

My wife is highly allergic to shellfish and onions. We explained to our waitress that she has this allergen. The waitress told us that she would let the chef know. Well she did, the chef confirmed her allergen with her. There was a couple of people that ordered shrimp at our table. The chef took the time to prepare my... More

This is a great Hibachi restaurant that has shaped my way of thinking of Japanese Hibachi all my life. I have not been here in years, in fact not since the new building. I brought my husband here, as I really wanted him to taste great Hibachi and understand the love for shrimp sauce that I have. Ha! Okay, to... More

Loved the rainbow roll, the Philly roll, seaweed salad. The miso soup some the best I have had anywhere, like Hawaii, Iowa City, NYC, New Zealand. The service was superb, very helpful, responsive, friendly, just grand.

It is a great Hibachi restaurant, and not too expensive it you go at lunch. My family always enjoys it.

Returning from a tubing trip down New River we knew we would be late and called in to order and they not only kept our food ready but also entertained our additional requests and even a bag of rice for my submerged phone! Of course the indispensable HPWC charge for my Tesla was a boon not to mention the excellent... More

This place has hibachi and sushi which is great because I don't like sushi! Husband says its some of the best sushi he has had... hibachi was pretty good (steak /chicken combo). The great thing is they were so quick with the food. The hibachi came with salad AND soup... I couldn't resist getting the seaweed salad too! We both... More

This is the place that started it all for me...They are not in the same building but the food is still excellent. I love the hibachi style of Japanese cooking and have eaten it from coast-to-coast. Makoto's is my benchmark for excellence. The food is always fresh. The staff very attentive and the portions are huge. The sushi is good... More

Just dropped off our son at ASU and had an excellent dinner on our last night at Makoto's! We love Japanese hibachi restaurants and have been to many across the country. Makoto's will go down as one of our favorites! Both the waiter and our chef were very friendly and engaging. The dinner show had many of the usual elements... More
