“Better Sashimi than Spoon & Fork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2012

The inside is nice enough, even though Spoon & Fork definitely looks Classier.
This place has MUCH better customer service (still not 100%) but better....
The sashimi is just better quality (cut & the fattiness), rolls are about even, though you have to ask for spicy mayo on the side.
The shrimp tempura are a little too oily and the seaweed salad a little sweet sometimes. However verything is always yummy!
The best things about this place are:
1)the Salmon Sashimi
2)the garlic diced steak
3)smoked salmon phillicheese rolls
4)Dinamite rols (have to ask for spicy mayo)
5) fried banana with GREEN TEA icecream (and chocolate sauce)

“BEST Sushi Experience Ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

It's been a while since I have had a really good Sushi experience... There is a grand selection of good quality Sushi - which was delicious! The portions were extremely generous and tasty. The service was also great - just as I was about to ask for a water refill, it was already taken care of. The interior of the restaurant is very modern and comfortable. I will definitely be going back and recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quality belly experience.

“Sashimi was excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

Sashimi excellent - service only ok. Guess it's all about the food - in which case, I can't complain.

“Not worth it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

We got referred to Makimono in Woodbridge by friends, who raved about the selection and taste. After trying it ourselves, we were left less than impressed.
Wait time: considerable, plus you might be asked to change tables under the pretense of "larger party has reserved it". They have longer tables for large parties. Should not bother other patrons.
Food: mediocre at best. What else do you expect from an AYCE sushi in Woodbridge? The selection is better than most places, but everything taste the same, blend and falling apart. Dip-fried stuff (tempuras etc.) drips with oil.
Service: this is where it gets really ugly. Wait staff is either ignoring you or are rude to you. Their attitude is alarming. Things get thrown on the table, one waitress whose attention we were trying to get turned to us with "WHAT?", etc. Plus, it is not Ok to make patrons wait for 30 min. for an order, without ever appologizing for the wait. It is not OK to ignore customers. Its funny when you finally manage to flag one of them down, try to ask her something and she just walks away. Seriously, turns around and walks away without answering.
Atmosphere: student cafeteria.
Return: no, there are tons of sushi place in GTA, this one is not worth it.
