I've been to both Makoto's here in the area and the atmosphere is great. My kids love to watch them cook the food right at the table. The cooks are quite humorous too. The food is great and you get a ton of it. I don't like liver but you must try the liver patties that they serve with the seafood sauce. You'll be surprised if you try it. The best part for my kids is the swans and other animals they make with your leftover. Overall it's a great place to get a good meal. If you want to save a little money on your meal try going at lunch. You get almost the same amount of food for less money.
