I was so please to hear that Makoto was opening after watching the sign go up knowing that they were coming.
Southern Pines needs Sushi. Southern Pines needs GREAT sushi. Makoto nailed it!!!!!
It's a very small and intimate establishment, perhaps eight tables in all, plus seating at the bar. It’s an ideal location for a romantic dinner or a comfortable meal with close friends and family.
The first thing that hooked me was whomever created the Sake list, did it properly and included some Nigori (unfiltered Sake) which to me will emphasis the true flavors of Sake as well as the sushi. Well Done!
We started at the bar and the Sushi Chef was friendly and knowledgeable. She guided us through several appetizers and then onto multiple rolls, all with incredible presentation and freshness.
It’s a family run business with the daughter behind the sushi bar and mother and father around the restaurant.
Overall it was a perfect experience and one I look forward to repeating again.
