Makoto, Sydney

Possibly one of my favourite sushi place in Sydney. It has been opened for a while now, it was my go to must eat sushi place. I say ‘was’ because the queue can be ridiculous long, and there are many more sushi train places that are just as good. But for me, my favourite is still Makoto.

Thankfully on this cold Saturday evening, the queues weren’t long and we were seated on the bar in less than 20 mins! Doesn’t happen all the time, that’s for sure, especially during peak hour!

‘The Mother’ and I always start with salmon sashimi – LOVE! This was deliciously fresh and one plate is never enough for the both of us!

The fried whiting sushi, ask for it fresh and not taken from the conveyor belt. If taken from the conveyor belt, it can be lukewarm, so ask for it fresh!

King fish sushi, one of ‘The Mother’s’ favourite.

My favourite, eel sushi – it glistened, the sauce, sweet and wonderful. YUM!

Torched salmon belly sushi – divine and a must try if you have not had it before. One of our favourites.

Love the seaweed sushi – they should just sell seaweed salad.

Tamagoyaki – scrumptiously sweet and love.

I can never go past agedashi tofu, definitely a favourite of ours.

We also got a couple of hand rolls – salmon and avocado, soft shell crab handroll which I forgot to take a pic off, and I have to say, possibly one of the best hand rolls around!

Service minimal, food just as good as I remembered it to be, but they didn’t seem to have my favourite dessert – the strawberry mochi! Where did it go? None of the other dessert really intrigued me. Regardless, it satisfied my sushi cravings! YUM!

    Looks like there’s great variety there (except in the dessert department!) and I love the variety of serving plates.

    sushi! have a mad craving for it… something about the vinegar-y rice…and the fresh, fishy-ness of the fish

    Can’t believe I haven’t been to Makoto yet, food looks above average comparing with other sushi trains.

    I’m so glad that I have already eaten dinner because otherwise I’d be clawing at my screen! It all looks so glisteningly fresh! 🙂
