In our last visito to Makoto we were very disappointed their quality had been compromised. Frosty fried rice was tasteless and the Kani salad had no crab. We certainly hope they improve quality so we can enjoy their food and ambiance once again.

Of all the restaurants by Bal Harbour mall, this is probably the most expensive, but as the food is I guess more involved, that is understandable. The best value for lunch is 'The Lunch Box' for $19. We didn't do this but wish we had...More

Food is good, but could be better. Service was not good. It was lunch time, and they were not too busy but couldn't offer a good table. The bathroom was way too dirty. Service was too pushy.. Used to be better a year ago.
