  • "Restaurant was less than a block from where we were staying in Center City, so it was a great location. Service was a little slow at first, but the food was good and well priced. If you're in the mood for sushi, this is a good place to go."

  • "When we first walked in for our early reservation, there were only a couple of tables occupied, which allowed the empty furnishings in the rest of the restaurant to shout "cheap" at us. However, once we were seated and had ordered and were joined by our friends, a crowd had amassed, and our waitress told us it was packed every night at 7:45. We were pleased with our food and the friendly service, and even more pleased with the very reasonable bill! Furthermore, we got out in plenty of time to get to our show. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who wants a fun dinner that won't cost too much when you're not planning to linger forever because you're going to a show."

  • ". . .but the fish was mediocre, having virtually no taste. Everyone who works at Makiman Sushi was pleasant and eager to please, and the menu looked wonderful. We ordered a variety of salads, sashimi, nigiri, and rolls. None of it had any taste! The fish tasted only cold. The flavors in the rolls blended into one mushy overall taste. The fish selection itself was mundane - a standard block of tuna, hamachi, salmon, etc. - and they could barely be distinguished by taste. This is a great location and seemed to have much promise. But we all agreed that nothing had any taste, and we won't be returning."

  • "This is the second time dinning here. We had both sushi and some other entrees and dessert. On both occasions the food was exceptional as was the service. I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Our first time here. We had an enjoyable meal, the service was excellent, and the price was right. A great informal spot for dinner before the show."

  • "Not the best sushi, service or atmosphere. But certainly not the worse. Decent last minute choice if you are close to the place and it fits your time frame."

  • "Wanted to find a sushi restaurant before a show, and this place is perfectly located, just off Broad Street. The food was excellent, and the menu extremely creative--if you like sushi, you will find much here to like. The prices are good, and the atmosphere was perfect: quiet, and the interior is just fancy enough without feeling too formal. Our server was friendly and helpful, but oddly did not bring small plates for the appetizers (so I took a couple from a stack on a nearby cabinet). She gave good recommendations, and otherwise that part of the experience was fine. I definitely recommend this casual, nicely-situated restaurant if you're in the area."

  • "Came here Friday night at 7 and told the waitress we had to order quick and make a show at the Kimmel at 8. Our food came out quickly and without rushing we were on our way to the theater by 7:25. The staff was friendly, and our food was delicious, Thanks again Makiman!"

  • "The food was good, and relatively inexpensive. There are a lot of creative sushi rolls on the menu that I hadn't seen before at other places. The spider roll that we ordered was particularly good."

  • "This is one of my favorite BYO sushi places in the city, mainly because it's super inexpensive and it's good! I have been here a few times and have gotten delivery countless times and the sushi is always fresh and delicious! I highly recommend this place for big groups of people and celebrating birthdays and such since it's a BYO. I couldn't say better things about this place! I love it!"
