Honestly I did not enjoy my meal tonight, not really a lot of selection and the rice was not seasoned well at all. I would save my money and go else where. Great service though

Despite having a reservation, we had to wait for over 30 minutes to be seated. Of course, it was Valentine's Day, so it was okay.

Also given that it was Valentine's Day they were giving out a rose "to the lady". We were two women at our table with one man. They chose to give the rose to the woman who sat next to the man but not to the woman across. It was pretty embarrassing and insensitive. But, we insisted that they give out two roses, which they finally did.

Reservation through OpenTable had no value as on arrival we (like many others who had also reserved) had to put our names down and then wait for up to 45 minutes to be given a table. Staff wrote names on scraps of paper and called them out in order as tables became available. Lots of angry customers in a packed reception area all asking what the point of reserving is if we have to write our names down and wait for a table. Once seated, food and service was good although a little pricey.

Staff and service was great. The ambient noise was perfect, not too loud, and not to quiet. The food came out quickly, and was tasty.

My only complaints if I have to have some, is that they didn't have crispy spicy salmon rolls, or red bean sesame balls. In the grand scheme of things, not really something to complain about, and wouldn't stop me from going back in the least. Admittedly, it was a little pricey for a weekday dinner, but overall, it was a good experience.

Every single time I’ve been here - the food has been great. Not too many great all you can eat options in the GTA anymore but this one definitely better than most! Wish there were a few more dessert options but what they had was pretty good. Rolls are huge and generous.

Makimono Pickering is my go to AYCE sushi spot when I feel like venturing outside of Toronto. Good quality, friendly staff and quite centrally located. Perfect for an evening out!

We generally know what to expect when visiting. It's our goto AYCE sushi place due to proximity. The food is reasonable and fresh. Sushi is fast, the kitchen is a bit slower making for sporadic deliveries of orders placed on the iPad. I wouldn't say the servers are "outgoing" but generally polite and friendly enough. Overall happy but the cost seems to keep increasing with not much in additional offerings. Other locations (Whitby) seem to have a slightly more expanded AYCE menu.

A birthday and anniversary lunch for my parents at what is quickly becoming their favourite restaurant. We’ll likely be back again soon. We especially loved the addition of the fried custard cream buns. Yum!

Food over all was great. We just wish they had tuna sashimi on the menu. We were there on a Sunday dinner with our grandchildren from North Carolina.

Slow service compared to other AYCE places..we had to wait many times. After placing the order on iPad it was not confirmed for a long time and we were waiting in the middle of our meal without any food. But overall food and ambience was good.

Don’t recommend to go close to the end of the day, the service quality drops considerably as they start to rush you to close the restaurant... My 11 year older birthday girl who chose this place was quite disappointed as she was not done eating and they were rushing her for the last call... I always told her to not order more than you can eat so she ordered just what she was sure in the last call and when she finished she still wanted more... It was the first time ever we left an all you can eat restaurant feeling like we still could eat more... The food was good... The problem was mostly about the service...

Found the server(s) to be more interested and polite than previous experiences. Food is adequate for AYCE but the menu is smaller than the regular menu. The room is noisy with all of the hard surfaces. Overall however, it’s a good experience and meal.

For lunch price during Father's Day it was not bad, but for me its pretty much mediocre. Setting is pretty but slightly dark and food wise is good enough. The service is very prompt and precise due to having tablet form order. Thank you and do some more improvements.

Service and food were good. We asked for a table of 6 and they put us in the back corner of the restaurants. It was colder and darker there so it was a little uncomfortable but overall, not a bad experience.

The lighting was a bit dark in certain places, especially the bathroom. The food was good and the wait time wasn't too bad, though the wait time could be attributed to there not being many customers. Nothing to really complain about and it is an AYCE so make sure your stomach is empty and ready to get your money's worth.

The service at the Pickering restaurant is very poor, unlike the great service at their Ajax, Whitby, and Pearson Airport locations. It took over 20 minutes to be asked if we wanted anything to drink. When I asked for the WiFi password, the server turned her back on me, and walked away. The food came in drips and drabs, and most of it was cold by time it was delivered. The amounts of tempura and sashimi were incorrect, and half were never delivered. The restaurant needs to hire staff who can speak English (and even smile).

Food always great and they don't rush you so you have time to enjoy meal and company at leisure. Excellent service although we had to ask for a tea re-fill this time.

Was a quiet night. Service was steady. Overall, food was good. Was nice to see non-dyed ginger. Corn soup...do not order. A drop of yellow dye does not make it taste better. But the sushi was on point.

Pretty typical AYCE sushi. Nothing stellar but reasonably consistent food quality with an extensive selection. You know what to expect on subsequent trips. You're not going to find high-end products like fatty tuna just 'plain jane' tuna and nothing very exotic. The standard sushi items generally come out quickly but if you have ordered (via iPad) cooked, hot, fried items things will not necessarily come out in order.
If the restaurant is full it's noisy. A recent renovation has spruced the place up nicely. Historically the staff are not particularly 'friendly' but I've never experienced rudeness. This could likely be attributed to differing language strengths. On this occasion, however, I found the staff somewhat more attentive and pleasant. Maybe something has changed?
As for price, in line with other options in the area but I find all to be somewhat overpriced but a good selection allows you to order smaller portions increasing variety.
