Great Japanese food

Makimono serves very good Japanese food. We go there at least 15 - 20 times per year and go there to celebrate New Years every year. I have NEVER gotten sick from any of their food as one of the reviewers claimed. It is our 'go to' restaurant whenever company comes in from out of town and... read more

I used to work at a sushi restaurant, for the record. Our sushi used fresh fish from Quebec that was flash frozen. Our prices were also quite expensive. I was really impressed with their selection. Also surprised to see the rolls did not come out with a thick layer of rice which most ayce do to fill you up. Food... More

This is all you can eat Japanese. You place you order by indicating the items you want, as items are ready they are brought to your table. You can order more items when you are ready.

A friend and I ate lunch at this restaurant this week. Although we enjoyed our food, we both got quite ill later that evening. My friend was vomiting all evening and had to be taken to the hospital the following morning and was diagnosed with food poisoning. We did not eat anything prior to coming to this restaurant. My friend... More

Convenient location just off the 401. The food is interesting and a good value. I always feel like I have eaten "healthy" food when I dine here.

Came here for the all you can eat option and really enjoyed it. There is a fantastic selection of food and it all tastes delicious. You choose your food and drinks using an ipad on your table, any time you want more food just select it on the screen, submit the order and it arrives a few minutes later. The... More

So you are not going to be blown away as a foodie but you will be full and content. Value is really there. One of the best I have had in an all you can eat format.

The all-you-can-eat lunch special is a fantastic deal. Freshly made to order appetizers, sashimi, hand rolls, sushi, noodles and more. Everything tasted great. The atmosphere is nice and service is good too. Definitely will return (and again).

I usually find this restaurant quite alright. It has a modern interior and friendly staff although sometimes one server doesn't know that another has already been to the customer, needs tuning in organisation there. The food is quite good, there are two menus, the "all you can eat" and the "regular". I used to get the all you can eat... More

We love Sashimi. Here the AYCE choice is limited but good quality. The rest of the offerings are mediocre at best. They still seem to use foreign workers, most of who barely speak English. there are better options in the area. We won't be back.
