Hgh grade, a real find in a desert. BYO, nice menue, friendly chefs and help. Atmosphere not...but it's ok. And after a while you can feel very homey even if you aren't Japanese. I would like better music...can be good, but spotty. It ain't Aspen, but, hell its a lot closer. Prices are good. Don't have to truck down town or to the Main Line. No issues with parking. Safe neighborhood. Zero pretension, but there is a dignity.

Makiman got my fiance safely and eagerly eating sushi every week. In fact, sometimes her desire for sushi is greater than mine...and I blame Makiman for this -not that it's a bad thing. We really do love this place. We see the same faces in there every Friday night. They have an abundant [select]ion of sushi which is always fresh. We've never had a "bad one" from Makiman. The rice is flavored as good or even better than some of the higher ed counterparts of center city. The staff is always friendly and never ever gives us a problem. Go early or go late, because seating is limited. BYOB, too. Salad and Miso with some meals is very good it even comes with their take out (live too far for their delivery), but they deliver, too . Look for the cool sushi decorated trucks. I almost always get the "Choose your own" 3 rolls w/ soup and salad. She gets spicy tuna, california, and Cap-n-Crunch - also great is the sunburst roll (cap-n-crunch with tuna on top). They have great specialty rolls, too many to mention. DO NOT OVERLOOK THIS HIDDEN GEM...I did for far too long...and in my own back yard. Just look at the patrons' cars and you'll see, Makiman brings some class to the NE 5 -points.

My boyfriend and I have enjoyed sushi from this cute establishment for over 2 years and the food and service are always consistantly fantastic. The owners Kim and Peter are always friendly and attentive to their customers. We'll keep coming back!

The chefs at Makiman are very talented, serving up the only decent sushi I know of, in Northeast Philly. They also have an interesting [select]ion of special, seasonal items - very very tasty, if a bit pricey. Anyway, we'd go there all the time, except that they have a distracting TV over the sushi bar (muted), and frequently, top 40 pop music blaring from the radio. I suppose, if I were a teenager, I'd feel differently about it. But, if I'm going to spend good money on an evening of aesthetic dining, I'd prefer it were either quiet, or something mellower on the jukebox.

Excellent place for Sushi!! Try the Cap'n'crunch. Very innovative, very tasty, BYOB in N/E Philly. Who would've known?

As a long time resident of Northeast Philly, you tend to get tired of only having pizza as a delivery option, so its pretty refreshing to have Makiman and its extensive, unique menu. Their sushi is great, however, the portions tend to be on the small side (an average of 6 pieces per order as opposed to the 8 or more many places offer). The best value at Makiman, without a doubt, are their bento lunch specials.

The tempura is excellent. My husband loves the teriyaki dishes. Get the shumai appetizers.
