Mako is our favorite restaurant in Los Angeles. We go weekly for fish soup..generous pieces of fish in a seasame brooth. Perfection!! We have yellowtail and ignagi sushi..delicious! The meal is completed with chawanmuchi..the only place we have found this Japanese treat in San Gabriel Valley. We love this quaint country style place.

I had a fantastic experience because I was with friends who are regulars and get treated extra well. Therefore, my review might be somewhat stilted. Venue is a bit unkempt and could be made nicer. Also feels quite dank. It is also in a rundown looking shopping center. So I was expecting it to be more 'hole-in-the-wall' type prices. It... More

I live right around the corner from here and so I have been a few times. Firstly, as soon as you enter it is like being in a different city - from the small cramped, busy car park, to a busy, bustling sushi joint. They have the customary sushi bar, where you can watch the elderly, and very skilled chefs... More

I followed these reviews and tried out Mako Sushi. I was very disappointed. I love to find little hole-in-the walls that are gems but this wasn't one. They started off great, nice ambiance and the waitresses were great and very friendly. I had the special rainbow roll, the tear jerker roll and the oysters. The portions were good and so... More

I ordered a lunch special with chicken teriyaki & sushi. It came with rice, miso soup, and salad. The salad had a plethora of dressing-- way too much. But the miso soup was some of the best I've ever had. The rice felt like 2 day old or overnight rice (I eat rice at home everyday, and you just know... More
