Makoto Japanese Restaurant5213 Rumble Street, Burnaby
Food as Art
Submitted Friday, March 19, 2010 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

Makoto became our new go to spot after the first time we tried it! It's a small Japanese family run place and due to the limited seating capacity (about 20 people) and the proximity to our home, we generally got our food to go.

But oh- what food! Their sushi is outstanding and always looks amazing. The chef is obviously talented and enjoys his work. Even when we opened our little take out boxes at home, we were always blown away by how beautiful the food looked. The salmon sashimi was once presented as rose buds! Absolutely charming.

The prices here are probably higher than those you would expect to pay at a local small sushi place, but I always believe that you should pay for quality and at Makoto - you definitely are.

The interior is very cool - lots of black lacquered wood, cute little vases and a very unique bar made from a tree trunk I believe.

The service, when dining in, is pretty good. But I always maintain that one never goes to a sushi place for the service- they go for the food. The wait staff could probably need augmentation - like 1 more - but I don't think the owners will be having any more children :0)

I will definitely stop in for something yummy (try their very unique Volcano roll - actually looks like one) whenever I am in Burnaby again.

After being spoiled rotten by a wide selection of outstanding sushi restaurants in Burnaby for the last 9 years - I have been searching for good tasting and value priced sushi restaurant here in Maple Ridge. This is definitely it! The place appears to be run by Japanese people and when I went in to pick up my order, the place was filled with Japanese patrons. Always a good sign to me! Our order was prepared promptly, and tasted very fresh! The portions were appropriately sized and the presentation was very appealing. The Alaska roll is made from REAL crab - which you don't find in many places anywhere in Metro Vancouver. And the best thing of all- is that the food is priced properly - no $5 negitoro rolls here! Actual retail price = $2.50!! Yipee!

Two thumbs way up for this sushi restaurant!
