Makimono Sushi Bar & Restaurant - Oshawa
This was our first visit. It is either all-you/can- eat for a flat price or menu service. No one explained the service to us - just sat us and dropped an iPad on the table. We had to ask for an explanation on how to order. The wait staffs English was very poor - we couldn’t understand what any of them said. We asked how much the all you can eat is and they said $30 per person. I didn’t order it for myself or my son, because we don’t like sushi and wanted to order a la carte. My husband and daughter had all you can eat. I wanted to get some rice and chicken balls for my son. They don’t have a kids menu. So, the only way I could get that for my son who is 9 years old was to order a full order of rice and a full order of chicken balls for $12 each. So, his meal was $24 plus a drink with no free refills and he couldn’t even dent it. Then we found out later when getting the bill that for a 9 year old kid the all-you-can-eat is $13 with free drink refills! Why wouldn’t they have told us that when ordering? He could have had a sampling of chicken balls and rice and whatever else for half the price. I ordered the pad Thai and it was only okay. My husband who is a sushi lover said it wasn’t great. It was a huge bill for mediocre food and crappy service. Will not go back.
Great place. We ordered 4 big rounds of food, enough for 6 hungry people. My only 'complaint' is that the pepper beef chunks were very small and they were bringing the food out slowly, as if they didn't believe we'd finish everything we were ordering. We also had to ask for forks 4 times. Oh and please don't layer shrimp and crab tempura on veggie tempura. Not everyone likes the seafood. They should come separated.
Food was good, came out hot and fast. Rolls were high quality.
It was basically wonderful (good food, good price, delicious tea) in every way, but for a couple with a child watching loud tv shows on a mobile device that was sat next to us after we arrived. I wasn’t super upset about it, but it was a bit of a mood killer for our date. Will go again and possibly ask for a move private table next time!
Amazing place, fresh food, great setting, very friendly servers and amazing service, would definitely come back!
Great food, not too busy and service has always been good. No complaints at all and a nice place to grab lunch or dinner. Worth checking out.
Food is amazing. Very fast service and friendly attentive staff 5/5
We had a party of 8 and had a very enjoyable time. The food was good, the waitress was friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. We will all be returning! Good times!
It was great. Staff was friendly and food was good.
This is my favourite sushi restaurant. The quantity of the food is always excellent, and the service is great. The servers are quick to fill your glass and confirm your orders.
our server randomly took our drinks away and then got us new ones after a small while had passed? it was very off putting and i wasnt sure why they did that
We used to come here occasionally, and have noticed that, over years, the quality has gone down but the price has gone up. We won't be back anytime soon.
food was good quality and tasty. servers were excellent at both, bringing the food quickly after ordering , and clearing the tables. they were also very friendly. it was my son's birthday and I appreciated it. :)
Food and atmosphere was good enough, however, we made a reservation weeks in advance and when we got there, they had no idea who we were.
Food was very amazing. Only issue was after ordering we had to call the server back twice because 2 items we ordered we didn't get. Overall though an amazing restaurant and will recommend 😊
Food was delicious, and I love ordering with an iPad. I didn’t like that one of the servers spilled one of the sauces on the table and did absolutely nothing to help clean it up. Also, it took a ridiculously long time to get the bill/debit machine. I guess the extra time helped to digest some food before we waddled out, lol.
Food is delicious and the food was quick and accurate!
The staff are fantastic, service is quick and the food delicious! Best sushi place in Oshawa!
Great food and service!
My partner and I attend this restaurant often.
Work outting, had a blast, food was delicious!
We had a great time. Never felt rushed which I really appreciate. The food was served at a good pace.
Twas a good time service was appropriate.
Food was great but there was a glitch with out Ipad menu and it removed many of the items. The restaurant was unable to fix nor did they offer a new one. Service was also very slow but the food was great.
The waiter even after being informed server veg and non veg dishes on the same plate. Had a reservation, still the restaurant took a while to get us seated even when most of the booths were empty. Had high hopes.. food was alright not valued accurately though. Would not recommend.
Very good service and meal
However no recognition of birthday celebrations
This was our first eating her. We came her because it was close to the arena and we wanted to try it out.
If you looking for good service and food variety give this restaurant a try. Not as cheap as other all you can eat so wouldn’t be going her a lot.
We have been to most of the sushi restaurants in Oshawa and found that the food at Kakemono is at least as good as any other sushi restaurants in the area, so the deciding factor was the service. Once again the service was outstanding so we will be back again.
Very good service. Sushi was nothing special. A bit pricey.
Love the food selections and efficiency when placing orders using the IPAD. My kids love the whole ordering processes and would definitely dine again at Kakemono 😉
Good food, good place. The food comes fast and furious-suggest breaking your order into several servings
Food was fresher later at night
My friends talk about Kakemono, so I went after grad. It was really nice. The food was great, didn't take too long to get. And there was lots of food- we ended up taking it home and I had it for lunch the next afternoon. This is probably a great place if you have a lot of friends because you can order different things and share. I'd go here again : )
Love it. Always get a table quickly. Wait staff are friendly. Good is simply wonderful. I go as often as possible. Price is reasonable. Kid friendly. Fast service.
Easy and our one year could join us for the All You can eat menu.
Service sucked.... No matter how many times they gave me my sushi rolls, I had to always ask for ginger and wasabi separately right after. Very rude servers and the sushi was decent. Only thing I really liked was the ambiance. Not sure if id go again though just for that.
I have dined at Kakemono several times over the past year or so and the service and food has always been excellent. I do find the all-you-can-eat dinner menu a little pricey, but for a nice lunch it's pretty good value.
I had a horrible experience here. We were sat at our table and given no tablet to order from, we had to track someone down to give us one. We had to ask the server for more water 2 times. We got all our appetizer type food but waited 25 minutes and received none of our rolls we ordered (which was the main part of our meal), (we did all you can eat). We told the server that our rolls had not arrived and he said he would check on it and they would be coming....then later came back after we said they had still not arrived and he said the order never went through. We had to leave for a movie and never received the main portion of our food. All they would do is give us 10% off even though we only received half our meal. For the all you can eat price it most definitely was not worth it. I've been to Tatemono in Whitby many times and LOVE that place with excellent fast service....but I will likely NEVER come back to Kakemono in Oshawa.
Just a great restaurant to take a friend or a date to enjoy some unique food. Using an iPad to choose your food is very cool. Having visuals as well as descriptions of each item makes choosing that much easier. It is a digital buffet that comes to you. Highly recommend.
overall we found the experience was wonderful. all enjoyed the different menu choices so there was something for everyone to sample and try new foods. definitely would go back again with a group of friends. atmosphere was quiet , easy to hold conversations with people around the table. a really nice place to go for a friends get together or a family party.
The service was awful. They had not read the note I included in the reservation about needing a table close to the front because I cannot walk far. They tried to seat us far away and were confused when we asked for a seat at the front (there were plenty available). It then took forever to get drinks, and continued that way for our whole dinner. The food is good, but not the best around. I will not go there again.
