We have been here for lunch several times and each time it seems to go down hill little by little. Initially it had cloth tablecloths, then went to paper ones, and the last time there was no covering. The presentation of the food has deteriorated, although the quality has remained quite acceptable, except for the vegetable tempura which is served... More

Been here a few times over the past 2 months. The staff are rude, the food is sub par and they repeatedly drop items off at the wrong table. Today our plates were dirty and they refused to take my VISA debit card, after admitting their machines will accept them, they just want cash. Well guess what? Their ATM wasn't... More

Started coming here shortly after they opened and loved it. Sadly the quality of the food declined. Service fell to all time lows, I refused to return. Well my wife and I tried it once again several month ago and I am pleased to say they have done a complete turn around. The food is great as good or better... More

Makimono is what you would expect, a very average Japanese restaurant. I don't like sushi, so I ordered the General Tao chicken, which was a little fatty, but decent. Paul Wong's is the best Asian restaurant in Pickering, much better than Makimono, and offering Chinese takes on Japanese dishes (such as Teriyaki), and so much better than Makimono.

The service is very good. Food is mediocre for my taste, I have had japanese in different places and this doesn't seem to stand out. Sashimi is so tiny and for an eat all you can restaurant, one sashimi per order is ridiculous. The photos on the tablet menu when ordering and sending the order electronically is something I have...

Highly recommend avoiding this location as the servers are rude and watch and comment if you order several dishes to try (management must have asked them to police people's orders). Quality is not as good as other locations. Avoid at all cost.

The food did not exceed the expectations I expected. Having to use a tablet that previous patrons used and it was not cleaned by the staff did not make my dining experience pleasant. I don't know where their hands have been or even if they are clean!

This restaurant is 5 minutes from our home and we have been going here since they opened. In my opinion, the experience has greatly improved since they implemented a tablet at each table for ordering. The décor is great since they renovated, the restaurant is very clean and the food amazing and is always fresh. Overall the Customer Service is... More

Food is great, my favourite miso soup is always good. Their banana desert is the best and waitresses are all attentive. We always go back there when we want to eat Japanese Food.
