Im not sure if this place was taken over by new owners - but the food is not the same. The sushi was very sweet and lacklustre presentation and taste. Very disappointed. I couldn't eat my food because it was so sweet and consequently it got thrown in the bin.

We go here regularly and feel it is far and away the best Japanese food in Devonport and very reasonably priced. Particularly favourite is the salmon sashimi bento box - lovely thick slices of super-fresh salmon. For a spicier option we've enjoyed the spicy pork bento.

I ordered the prawn Donburi tempura $13 and it was just OK. The food didn't taste fresh, it was very dry. The service was not too friendly either.

We were after a nice easy takeaway dinner and ended up disappointed. Ordered two bento boxes and on collection we paid and were handed our meals minus the miso soup. We were told they had run out, which was fine but were surprised they had not told us that when we ordered 10 minutes earlier or at least taken the... More

We go to Makoto reguarly - usuall when the sushi is half price in the afternoons. It's a nice quiet pleasant place to go and the sushi is relatively good.
