There aren't many dining options in Manahawkin and Makoto brings something different. They have the typical hibachi choice, veggies, rice, noodles,, steak, chicken, etc. Prices are about 20 per person. The decor is typical, service is pretty good. The hibachi chefs go out of their way to entertain especially if there are kids at the table. They will also give kids modified chop sticks to eat with if they want to try them. Food is very good, and portions are large. There is also a sit down area which serves a typical japanse menu, in addition to the sushi bar, these items can also be ordered if you are sitting at hibachi. Dessert is not included here, like it is at some hibachi places. They also do take out which is nice. Recommended for family, couples, special events. Can get loud if they are celebrating a birthday which comes with loud music and a gong!

Makoto is a great place from start to finish. The waitstaff is always attentive and never lets your glass be empty for long (if at all). The food from appetizers to sushi to hibachi, is awesome!!! The portions are large (great to take home leftovers for lunch the next day) and the food fresh and coooked in front of you to your liking. Most of the hibachi chefs are excelent and entertaining - though one lacks any excitement for what he does. We just ignore it when we get him and hope the next time we get one of the other chefs. All in all - we love to eat at Makoto and will continue to keep coming back! Better than any other hibachi restaurant!
