Makoto is probably one of the first sushi train restaurants established in Sydney that are still able to keep themselves occupied with customers coming in and out of their relatively moderate spaced shop. Even though they are not doing the flat-rate-per-plate pricing like some new sushi shops do, they seem to be doing very well.
I have been visiting them twice for the past month and can really tell that although the overall price is more expensive than others, their food is actually of good quality. I had cold soba that was good for a starter, and had a homemade soba sauce, which was beautiful. Their made-to-order sushi hand rolls (which was $3.60 each when I visited) were very fresh, with my favourite being omelette with scallop hand roll as well as the ever-popular salmon avocado hand roll. Their salmon sashimi plates were also awesome, with five thick slices of fresh, high quality fish on each plate and are competitively priced.
As well as the above, they sometimes have limited edition seafood items, such as steamed scallops on the shell covered with fukahire tobiko (soft golden glass noodle and fish roe).
The servers are friendly and also attentive, which makes dining in this place one pleasing experience.
