They opened the restaurant in 1994 at the corner of Zelzah Avenue and Ventura Boulevard. At first there were not many customers, but people soon learned that Makoto Sushi is always “oiishi” – delicious! So the number of customers grew. Now they are so busy “it is difficult to keep up,” says owner chef Makoto with a wry smile. Many customers including men and women of all ages enjoy the restaurant until 1 A.M., which is closing time.
