It's a cubby – This is one of the better sushi places nearest to Irwindale. It's pretty small and doesn't hold alot of people but you can tell it's authentic and one of those pleasantly good hole in the walls. I like their tuna the best it's fresh and they are generous with their portions. I prefer to sit at the sushi bar.
If You Dont Like Sushi Come Here, You'll Change Your Mind!!!! – O.K., Start with the Albacore Sushi, Get two orders, for your self, waiting two minutes for another order is way too long! Ask the Sushi Chef what's good, tell him what you dont like, he'll convince you with his talent then, you'll love it! I dont like Mackerel and he heard me say it, he put two pieces of Japanese Mackerel in front of me, for free, and I order it everytime now! Try the Fatty Tuna cut roll, BOO BA BIM!!!! I've yet to have fresher, better, well-portioned sushi than Mako. I believe you pay for what you get, in the case of Mako Sushi it's the best deal in Sushi you'll ever find!!!!
Best Sushi – This is my favorite sushi restaurant because their fishes are always fresh, and the sushi chefs are friendly. I never got "bad" service there. But the restaurant does get full very quickly because it's a popular place and seats are limited. I always sit at the sushi bar so can't say if the wait staff are attentive or not.
BIG PORTIONS – Eating here for the first time was a wonderful surprise. I had been driving 20 miles for sushi and all this time this marvelous little place was a few blocks away from me. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the fish is always fresh. Oyster shooters are superb. Just be careful about their portions... one hefty hand roll will fill you up... and their maki rolls are enough to feed 4... Okay so i'm exaggerating a bit... but the portions are very generous. Love this place!
Try their Rolls~ – The Best Roll is called WHITE HOUSE. It just melts in your mouth. Everythings are good, just don't forget to mix with your sake!
The best sushi in SoCAL!! – Small family owned restaurant provides the best sushi in socal for a resonable price. The Salmon just melts in mouth, but that is not all. The best and almost mesmerizing taste is that of the seared albacore. If you have not had albacore at Mako sushi, you have never tastes sushi! The portion are very generous, no mini bites, you get on large delicious peice of sashimi. Service is a bit slow, but you can avoid it if you sit at the sushi bar.
