Makino Sushi Bar by Marky's Group is a sheltered outdoor sushi bar seating 14 guests at our high-top counter.

Located outside of the Aventura Mall in the Piazza Entrance. We are near the outdoor entrance of Cheesecake Factory, Rosalia, and Kilwins. (Parking available in the outside lot of Bloomingdales & Valet Service is walking distance)

At Makino, the courses are constructed around seasonal produce, utilizing only the freshest and most delectable high-quality ingredients available on the market.

Chef Yasu invites you to join him at his counter as he highlights flavors from his childhood in Wakayama, Japan.

    One of the top sushi restaurants in town.. traditional, quiet, un-assuming, excellent Japanese chefs! A rarity in this town where glitz is more prized than exquisite seafood quality, perfect service and presentation. Their apps are amazing, the handrails are fantastic and a simple seaweed salad tastes completely different then the over sauced/over spiced versions elsewhere. Bravo Makino!

    Makino is our favorite sushi place in town. Super fresh ingredients and friendly staff. The quality of the food here is far above other sushi restaurants in aventura mall. The place has bar seating so it gives you a chance to see the sushi chefs prepare your food and you get to interact with them while they do so.

    Perhaps unfairly, we are used to having sushi at some of the better places in NYC. The chef tried hard here but it fell well short and wasn’t even value-priced. Too much salmon for one thing—not enough quality or variety for the $130 omakase. The sake was just okay, too. Eating next to a construction site under an elevator probably didn’t help with the overall experience, either.

    The fish and preparation were top quality... Just wish the experience could last longer as it goes by super quickly if you're just having nigiri.

    Wow, some of the best sushi I’ve ate. I used to live in San Francisco and have always had trouble finding good sushi in Florida until now. You would never think walking by that this place is so special but do not pass up the opportunity to eat here. 10 out of 10!!

    Nice hidden gem, high quality sushi in Aventura Mall next to Cheesecake Factory. Bar seating only and located outdoors which was unexpected but did not take away from the quality of the seafood.

    The food was fantastic. Really the best and most creative sushi experience I've had outside of NY or LA. Naoe is different so you can't compare the 2. This was a fun (if you've been to Naoe you know what I mean). The fish was incredible and the preparation and attention to detail were unmatched. But...it's outside. At the Aventura Mall. Right near The Cheesecake Factory. So there's that issue but it is 100% worthwhile.

    Very nice Sushi bar outdoors in the Aventura Mall first floor. The Sashimi and Nigiri was fresh and I got to try a great Japanese Beer. Among my selection Salmon, yellow tail, scallop, water Eel and grouper.

    PLEASANTLY SURPRISED: We were looking for a sushi place in aventura that served Uni. We came across Makino through open table, but did not realize it was located in the aventura mall. We were caught off guard upon arrival because it seemed more like a mall kiosk than a sushi restaurant. Despite our reluctance to eat sushi from an open air kiosk, we sat down and gave it a shot. So happy we did! Very attentive service and menu was simple yet abundant with creativity and fresh sushi. Sake selection was decent...just wish they had some nigori options. Oysters, Salmon belly, uni, hamachi, grouper carpaccio, A5 wagyu nigiri...all rivaled the taste, freshness, and preparation one would find at a high end sushi establishment. Menu had a nice mix of traditional sushi combined with some non traditional sushi like the "Tuna foie nigiri" Anyone who has a chance to sit down at the counter and enjoy this this great little sushi joint...do it! You will not be disappointed. We wish the chef and staff much success. kanpai!

    Had the best dinner experience at Makino with family! Chef Yasu put so much effort into every single dish. Every piece of nigiri was stunning and presented beautifully. Apart from the presentation, the taste was amazing.
