“Our favorite Japanese restaurant!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We stop by Makiman for lunch or dinner at least once a month. The restaurant is not very big, so it gives it a romantic and cozy feel. We love the sushi/sashimi combo, it's fresh and a great value. The teriyaki chicken is great as well, it comes sizzling on a hot plate and the chicken is on top of delicious carmelized onions. Service is usually good. This is one of our favorite spots, living in northeast philly this is the best Japanese place around. They also offer pick-up and delivery.

“Good value sushi”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

The place is modest sized and simple but the fare was fresh, nice and moderately priced. I visited the restaurant twice and had the sushi / sashimi deluxe combo and the unagi stone pot and wasn't disappointed on either occassion. Would recommend a visit.

“Nice BYO For Casual & Intimate Dining”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

The fish is always tasty and fresh. A few times they have been out of Toro or Ikura, two of my staples, but I appreciate that they aren't willing to sell sub-par seafood. The fusion rolls are very interesting and seem to be well thought out. I love the atmosphere here, it is perfect for date night but also great to bring friends or family from out of town since it is in such a great location off Broad. One negative, in my opinion, is the Spicy Tuna. More mayonnaise sauce than meat, I could barely taste the tuna. Other than that, everything has been amazing. We have gotten their delivery a few times even. I was scared to get sushi delivered but it was very quick and still cold when it arrived. A+ service.

A great little Japanese sushi house, byo; friendly staff, clean, close to Kimmel, Academy. Have been in several times for pre-theater dinner, never disappointed.

“Good choice”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

I have been here many times for business lunches or to meet up with friends. The atmosphere is nice, the staff is okay, the place is clean. The prices are reasonable. Lunch specials are comparable to other Japanese restaurants in the area.
