I have lived in Sydney for nearly a year, and Makoto became my favourite Sushi bar starting from my first visit! Recommended by a Japanese friend, it offers high quality sushi specialities on the Sushi train, as well as other dishes a la carte... Super friendly and professional Japanese staff... It would be great if they could make the atmosphere a bit "warmer", it looks like a fast food now, but it still worths a visit for the delicious food! Looking forward to the next time in Sydney!

Make sure you sit at the counter so that you can see all the yummy dishes floating past you. You could also order off the menu if you want the freshest, but most of the dishes on the sushi train are fresh anyway!

Excellent Sushi. We use Makoto as our benchmark for all other Sushi in Sydney. Usually a queue. Lots of Japanese people eating there, which is a good sign.

I liked it, it was a no fuss dinner, especially with all sushi plates at $3. We order the Ramen soups, a little watery, nothing special. Private booths to sit at or sit at the bar and watch the train go around. I think it was also BYO, as I saw the table behind us had wine. Enjoy

If you are looking for a great sushi experience this is the train for you.
Located at World Square, be sure not to mix it up with the sushi train in the centre of the square. For Makoto you need to enter from the Liverpool street side of the square near the corner of Pitt St.
For ease of eating it's best to sit at the bar with the freshest sushi sailing past you.
Be sure to try the different styles you don't see at other sushi trains.
The made to order menu is very good and I am quite fond of the desserts here. I highly recommend the green tea ice-cream.
Makoto can be busy at times so when you arrive, write your name on the board next to the door and tear off your small number. I have never had to wait longer then 5-10 minutes.
