I love this byob restaurant. The setting is very quaint with dim lighting and the menu is awesome. They serve made to order original sushi such a the ex boyfriend, sixers, and the ex girlfriend rolls to name a few.

Decent sushi considering the relatively cheap price. Easily fed 4 people for about 60$ (not including tip). Nice range of sushi types, not just the regular mall fare.

We needed a place for lunch after our trip to the Ryerss Museum and Libary, and we happened upon Makiman Sushi. The $9.95 lunch special with two rolls and either soup or salad was an excellent value, considering the choices of rolls included in the special. Spicy yellowtail, spicy white tuna, and yellowtail avocado were three such interesting and extremely... More

We stop by Makiman for lunch or dinner at least once a month. The restaurant is not very big, so it gives it a romantic and cozy feel. We love the sushi/sashimi combo, it's fresh and a great value. The teriyaki chicken is great as well, it comes sizzling on a hot plate and the chicken is on top of... More

The place is modest sized and simple but the fare was fresh, nice and moderately priced. I visited the restaurant twice and had the sushi / sashimi deluxe combo and the unagi stone pot and wasn't disappointed on either occassion. Would recommend a visit.

The fish is always tasty and fresh. A few times they have been out of Toro or Ikura, two of my staples, but I appreciate that they aren't willing to sell sub-par seafood. The fusion rolls are very interesting and seem to be well thought out. I love the atmosphere here, it is perfect for date night but also great... More

A great little Japanese sushi house, byo; friendly staff, clean, close to Kimmel, Academy. Have been in several times for pre-theater dinner, never disappointed.

I have been here many times for business lunches or to meet up with friends. The atmosphere is nice, the staff is okay, the place is clean. The prices are reasonable. Lunch specials are comparable to other Japanese restaurants in the area.

Makiman is a little gem of a restaurant located in Northeast Philly. They serve all types of unique and delicous sushi that I personally have never seen anywhere else. It's BYOB so that's always good! The staff are very nice and accommodating.

Makiman Sushi has a variety of lunch specials with generous portions. For example, the sushi bento box come with five pieces of sushi, steamed vegetables, two pieces of California roll, gyoza, salad, miso soup, and rice for only $10. There are also less expensive options. The sushi is fine-- nothing to write home about, but a great option for a... More
