For the last seven years, this has been my favourite sushi bar in all of Sydney and one of my highlights when coming to the city. Today the staff was different, the food was different and the quality and selection was poor. I actually asked...More

I was really excited to visit Makoto after reading rave reviews online. Unfortunately my experience here was far less than enjoyable. Firstly, the sushi plates are extremely overpriced. I paid $20 for 4 pieces of nigiri and left still hungry feeling guilty for spending that...More

The sushi itself was pretty fresh and they had quite a variety of types of fish to choose from however they do not serve alcohol. I like a bit of sake with my sushi. Kind of cool little place though.

Makoto had just been renovated recently. Loving the new atmosphere. And upgraded technology. Loving the deliciousness of the food here! Really fresh and nice! Delish! Definitely will come back. A bit more expensive than Sushi Train but it's worthy.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
