Makino is truly the best restaurant in Cairo and my favorite place to enjoy its fine cuisine. It offers authentic Japanese experience, and it is simply one of the top Japanese restaurants in Egypt, in the MIddle East. I have known Makino since February 2017, and since then I am a frequent diner at this unique spot in the heart of Cairo. It is better to make a reservation to secure a table upfront, as the place gets very busy due to its popularity. Few times, I have dined in company of my Japanese friends and guests, who praise its food by saying that it is "just like in Japan!". The staff is friendly, and often times Chef approaches visitors to inquire about quality of the fish, the food and sometime talks about special seasonal fish arriving to the restaurant for a special tasting experience. When you enter Makino you feel like as if you are not in Cairo anymore, but somewhere in Japan: cooks roll sushi in front of you, if you sit at the bar, and the party room offers a Japanese style sitting arrangement. My family and I love Makino and I full-heartedly recommend to anyone who visits Cairo and who is looking for a place to enjoy a great lunch / dinner.
