Chilled sushi and simmering hibachi have long been gastro foes, but they have recently come to coexist peacefully after decades of bento-box therapy. Benefit from a flavorful union with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese fare at Makoto's in Boone. This Groupon is not valid on Mother’s Day, and it expires on June 30, 2011.
For the past 30 years, Makoto's has remained a reliable tableside performance grill and sushi bar that has satisfied patrons with Japanese seafood, steaks, and other savories served up by expert and entertaining chefs. The sushi bar artfully decorates plates and stomachs with offerings such as the spicy kani salad ($6.95), inari or smoked salmon nigiri ($3–$4.50), and rolls ranging from the spooky roll with calamari and asparagus ($7.95) to the exotically creative fuji apple roll with apple, goat cheese, samurai secrets, and spicy tuna ($11.95).
Lunch and dinner entrees drop in surrounded by an entourage of sidekicks including soup, salad, shrimp sauce, and Makoto's bananas. Chefs prepare their combinations tableside using hibachi techniques, tossing tasteful towers of sesame chicken ($8.95 for lunch, $14.99 for dinner), scallops ($11.79 for lunch, $18.99 for dinner), and combination platters such as the teriyaki steak and scallops ($28.59). Makoto's also proffers a pintsize children's menu.
- Makoto's is always a great dining experience. Hibachi is a must. Go at lunch time because it's a better value. Each time I go I always have enough left over for one more meal. – gsuchick99, TripAdvisor
- Lunch Buffet is the best in the world! Reasonably priced with a great selection, this is a must! Lunch is casual and dinner is more intimate. Food is wonderful and the service is always top-notch! – A Yahoo! Traveler who posted on 1/7/09
