We have tried three other Japanese food places in Pickering and Makimono is by far the best. Their sashimi and sushi is delicious and whenever we have family come in from out of town, they always want to go there to eat.

I only go here for the AYCE and the service/food is good, but could be better. They changed the way they take orders to the iPad, so you can click what you want and it arrives at your table. The last few times I've gone, they forgot to bring us some items we ordered or brought us something we didn't... More

We were celebrating a birthday and decided on this restaurant One of us who had never eaten sushi also enjoyed the spread Besides sushi the rest of the spread was enough to make you want to stop but so good that you just can't stop

The restaurant offers good value and a good (not great) selection of rolls and sashimi. For an all you can eat format, I think the service was good and the food was prepared and served quickly. I liked the use of handheld, iPad-sized devices to place orders as it cut down on the wait time and provided information about the... More

We've been going to Makimoto since it opened and the changes they recently made to the menu are amazing. More variety and the quality seems much better. The wait staff could be friendlier at times but it doesn't really hinder the enjoyment of the food. A wonderful place for a social night out. My good friend and I make it... More

It is nice to be able to share the food, it is an all you can eat menu. They bring the food to your table, you just mark off what you would like. It is all very tasty.

We come here regularly... it's my hubby's favourite restaurant. The food is really tasty and they've added more menu items. The food quality is always great and we always enjoy our meal. The iPad menu is a really cool idea but it takes a bit of time to master, however, if you want to order something non-standard (e.g. order your... More

I came here with a girlfriend for lunch one day. The heater had broken down so the restaurant was freezing. Regardless we were served by friendly waiters. They gave us an iPad and took our drink orders but didn't explain how to order using the iPad. We kind of guessed our way through the ordering and hoped for the best.... More
