Made the reservation but when I called the restaurant to confirm, there was no answer. Went to the restaurant and it was closed down.
It was closed. I was still able to make a reservation on Open Table, received an email confirmation of the reservation and when we arrived it was "temporarily closed" according to a piece of paper tapped on the door. Left us scrambling for another place to eat before our show.
They are closed.
We arrived at the restaurant to find that it was dark and closed, with a note on the door. It has been closed ever since. Can't rate the meal, since we couldn't eat there and had to scramble to find a place for dinner. Very disappointing.
Restaurant was closed despite us making a reservation. Surprised no one called us.
One of my favorite sushi places to go in Philly! Food is always delicious and presentation is amazing. Love that it is BYO and reasonably priced...especially the speciality rolls they're huge!
I've eaten her many times and the one thing that bothers me is that our server never seems to wait until we are finished our appetizer before bringing out our entrees...makes me feel rushed!
Overall pleasant experience with amazing food!
Quick service, efficiently executed. Delicious sushi.
Makiman was very accommodating for our large group's birthday dinner, and gave us complimentary fried ice cream with a candle on top to end the meal. We had the Party Boat 3, and it was definitely more than worth the price, and absolutely delicious, as well. The fish was fresh, and the rice cooked perfectly. They asked us if we wanted spicy mayo and other sushi sauces, and were very attentive to our needs. One of our friends is vegetarian, and she had the vegetable bi bim bap stone pot, which was very filling and she said was delicious. Oh, and don't forget to bring a bottle of wine - this place is BYO as well!
What a disappointment! The server had to come back to our table twice to tell us that the things we ordered were actually not available, and the food that they were able to serve was not very good. Otherwise, it's just not a very nice restaurant.
Came on an early Saturday night dinner with my family, 7 people total and we were seated promptly - it was quiet so we got great service. Got all our orders correct and the food tasted great. Will return again in the future!
Dined on a Saturday evening as reservations elsewhere in the vicinity were tough to get and we had a concert at the Kimmel at 8:00. My guest and I were, however, very pleased and satisfied with our experience at Makiman and now will consider it a "go to" when in the area and desire Japanese in a casual and convenient setting. No complaints. Sushi was very good and nicely prepared. Will return to this restaurant.
Food was terrible. Fish did not taste fresh. Certain fish are only on the menu during holidays. Left after one roll and went to another restaurant to finish dinner.
We've been to Makiman several times. The sushi is the best anywhere.
Large and expansive menu, you should get more than just sushi here.
The sushi was pretty good but a little sloppy- for $16 dollar rolls I'd expect higher quality.
Waitress gave us a special sauce for one of the rolls which was nice and appreciated.
The sushi was outstanding actually. Service was quick and efficient.
