A little restaurant in a little industrial quarter of Adliswil...
you have to search it, but if you found it and tried it, you will come back your whole life.
Because you gonna always dream about this wonderful and tasty Sushi creations, that you never had before...
I tried so much Sushi Restaurants in the World.
And you won't find it in L.A, you won't find it in London, you won't it neither in Zurich-City...
But you will find it 15 min away from Zurich in Adliswil.
And the way is it worth...

Thank you to Tobi and his wife Leslie for that charming place...

This place is not so easy to find, and it's out of Zurich, but it is definitely WORTH IT ;) It's a small sushi restaurant with only few tables, but it makes it even nicer. I would recommend to make a reservation, cause it's usually full.
We ate as a starter Ceviche (raw fish in lime-juice, chili and red onion) - which was really good, and then SUSHI PLÄTTLI «MAKOTO». It's a mix of different sushi - 20 pieces. It was amazing! The best sushi I have ever eaten. It looked as good as it tasted. There were some classic sushi rolls, but also some new (for me) variation of sushi. It was a real ART! Congratulations for the Chef!
You could feel that ingredients were really fresh. I never tired such a soft and delicate salmon, which was literally melting in my mouth.
It was quite expensive, I would say, even for a sushi restaurant, but if you want to eat really good quality sushi, that's money well spend. Definitely worth recommending!
Just book a table and enjoy! :)

We moved to Switzerland a few years ago. One of the first challenges was to find good sushi. After a few disappointments in the city of Zurich we found this place and go back ever since. The place is basically a hole in the wall and hard to find but very nicely decorated, clean and fresh.
The Ceviche appetizer and a huge plate of FRESH rolls is our usual order and always served friendly and professional. This place is an absolute gem and thankfully hidden and off the beaten track, otherwise it would be completely impossible to ever get a table.
Having read other reviews about unfriendliness and success having gone to the owner's head, I could not disagree more. Yes, you need to make reservation. Yes, you should come on time as this is a small place and only one pair of hands is preparing your sushi.
For making your reservation and showing up around that time, you get fresh, great tasting food for a decent price. It works for us every single time.
We have introduced many friends to this place and they all go back there as regulars now.
P.S. The roll with the beef is a must have....

Located in an industrial area outside of Zurich, next to a meat processing company you would expect anything - but not the most excellent Sushi in Zurich!
The service is fast and friendly (the place is run by a couple), the food is truly amazing - try the fried Sushi *wow*. There is a small outdoor seating area which is not exactly a highlight but nice enough for a summer lunch outside. You might want to reserve a table - and enjoy the food!

It's in a slightly odd location but makoto is a real diamond in the rough.

Wonderfully fresh sushi in a relaxed atmosphere. Not sure how the other review was put off by the service, I have always found them very accommodating, especially when it comes to splitting the bill.

They have a really nice lemon drink under their own label which I recommend. Other than that, take a miso soup to start and then one of their platters and you are set.

Quite pricey as are all places in Zurich but here I have to say, you are getting the best sushi in Zurich.
