Sushi was on my list for lunch the day that I dined at Makiman, and I was not disappointed. I had three special rolls, and each was competently made. The fish was fresh, and the rolls were large. I attribute my only gripes to being the first customer of the day: the fish was very cold, the tempura batter that came with one of the rolls seemed warmed rather than fried (...perhaps the oil had not gotten to the right temperature yet?) and the roll that was on the lunch special board was charged full price (...even full price is fair here, so I didn't hassle them for the difference). These were all small things. I'll be back (...though a little bit later next time)!

Great quality, new options
We are so tired of the same-old same-old Japanese sushi restaurant options.
We ventured out of the suburbs and found this gem! The options were creative and delicious! Our kids ate every bite and the price was very reasonable.

We enjoy Makiman on a regular basis as our go to sushi place before a show on Broad street. Food is consistently good (fresh) and the servers are always kind and helpful. This is a low key BYOB that is very comfortable...why we are regulars.

Makiman isn't the flashiest sushi restaurant in town, but it cannot be beat in terms of bang for your buck. I've never had a complaint about the rolls - always fresh and delicious. Makiman has become our go-to when we want to have a tasty meal downtown but do not want to spend $50+. Bring a few bottles of wine and enjoy the energy that the other guest bring and you're all set.

Good food at good prices
Been twice both before theater, with very good experience both times. So much better than the typical Asian restaurant. This has nice decor in an attractive Center City location where the food is prepared well and quickly, and the staff is attentive. It has reasonable prices for food, and is a BYOB.

Great BYOB and large menu
This menu has a variety for sushi lovers & non-sushi lovers. They also have a great selection of cooked sushi for the people in your party who are still transitioning to raw sushi. The waitress gave us great recommendations, too!

Great for "dinner and a show"
Sushi choices were excellent and the steak teriyaki was perfect for a non-sushi diner. So close to the Academy of Music and Kimmel Center that it's a perfect place for a bite before a show

Good Sushi, Sub- Par Service
The food was brought out in a timely manner, and the sushi we ordered was good. The only negative thing I would have to say is the level of service. My friends and I were literally the only table there. We had to continually ask for our waters to be re- filled because our server only came to our table when she dropped off our food. It's a good thing we were the only table in there because we had to call from across the restaurant in order for us to get our check. Then we had to call her again so we could pay. Our server was sitting at the sushi bar on her cell phone CONSTANTLY... IN PLAIN SIGHT!! Overall, I don't think I'll be going back. I could go somewhere else to get the same sushi, for the same price, but get much better service
