Great selection, no option to make anything custom. Have that great sushi pig out without listening to sushi chef chatter or charm. If that's what you are looking for...Makino's (either location) is the place for you.

If you like Todai, you'll love Makino's. We think this place is much better. Tons of food, not just sushi. The sushi is great for an all you can eat buffet. One of our favorite spots in Vegas.

This is a great restaurant when some people want sushi, some people don't but everyone is hungry. The location is nice because there is ample close by parking, the inside is nicely done and the restaurant isn't so big that it is a trek to the buffet. At dinner they also have snow crab, oysters on the half shell and other seafood options.

The downside is that they do everything... okay instead of well. The sushi looks nice but often the rice is too hard or the quality of ingredients isn't the best, or it is just too big to eat. Some people may say this is normal for an All You Can Eat (ACYE) sushi place, this isn't true for the competition in the valley (Sushi Factory, Sushi Twister, and Sushi Tachi to name a few).
The cooked food is often overcooked (which is horrible for snow crab, and the fish and shellfish they have on the steam tables).

In short, they sacrifice quality for quantity. Again there are ACYE restaurants that charge the same amount but have much more consistent food, however you don't have the feast for your eyes in those places or the chocolate fountain so I guess it is a choice you have to make.

Well, actually lunch is all you need. This is the best sushi buffet you will ever visit. The place is clean, the decor has nice lines, it is hectic. The price is right. The sushi is fresh and varied. The salads are crisp and sauces sharp. The very nature of a buffet degrades the quality of the food IMO. The question is how much. At Machino's the amswer is very little. The sushi moves at this place (ok, not literally). The chefs are constantly preparing and serving it and there are usually 7 or 8 at work. When I am in LV I eat everyother lunch at Machino's. It's the only thing I enjoy more than Poker.

I've been to several sushi buffets and this is definitely one of the best...great sushi selections... tempura is always full of shrimps..not just vegetables....and everything is fresh... and they have good selections of cooked foods too for those of you who don't lke raw foods. and the last time i was there..they had a chocolate fountaine...great for the ladies who would rather eat desserts than anything else...

Todai never looked this good, but then again, the prices are the same, the food is practically the same so it may as well be the same. Vegas style buffets are huge, but Makino's keeps the overeating Japanese food lover in shape, which is fat and happy. Stay real hungry before you decide to make it this big sushi feast.

I think Makino is one of the best sushi buffest around.

Because the place is so busy, there is a huger turnover and keeps the food fresh. The salads are also pretty good.

The decor needs alot of work. I think the property is old and it shows. The bathrooms are a bit gross (but still decently clean) and really needs a decor upgrade.

Great selection of sushi and fresh seafoods. Varieties of traditional sushi and very untraditional. The foods are being prepare on front of you and you can get to pick what you want on your hand-roll. I usually go there for lunch because the dinner price is a bit higher. The restaurant is very clean and the workers are very friendly. So if you like Sushi and love to eat a lot of them please check out this restaurant.

Las Vegas being overly saturated with Buffet's, Makino's is a refreshing change. There are two locations, both I have found to be consistent in sushi preparation and freshness. For newbie sushi lovers, you can try a whole new array of tastes and combinations without having to order a whole roll. Large array of seafood salads, tempura, miso soup, terriaki meats, rice and wonderful desserts. Try the shaved ice with condensed milk and the sweet red bean paste! Sounds strange but so yummy and authentic. Taking out of town family there, they were amazed/stunned at how the whole place functions, but believed the sushi was of top quality. The waitresses are sweet yet very busy at times. Go for luch, basically same foods yet at a smaller price. For around $20, you can eat what would normally cost you $45. Try it at least once!

After eating at the Premium Outlets location with some visiting friends, I can't recommend the place.

First was the service-- we were seated only after several minutes of standing in front of the lady at the cash register (no other waiting customers, and plenty of space in the restaurant). The service from the waitresses was pretty indifferent. Granted, this is a buffet restaurant, but it would have been nice if they had at least kept our water glasses refilled.

The food was decent, in terms of the freshness. However, the pieces of sushi were so large that they were hard to manage. Such large pieces also tend to fill people up before they can sample some of the other types.

Value-- definitely not worth the $23.95 charged per person for dinner. They also charged extra for tea, which wound up being just an instant tea bag.

I can't recall having good experiences in AYCE Sushi places, but this place was surprisingly decent. As a Japanese national, I've experienced so many pseudo-shshi's prepared by non-japanese sushi chef-wannabe's in this country, but I'll give this place a passing score. Neta (Fish) portion of the sushi is not bad, sushi-rice is properly prepared, and I think Nigiri (squeezing the rice) part is done by a machine, but it wasn't bad, and overall came out ok. This place even has expensve "neta" like ikura (salmon-roe) and Uni (sea urchins) that aren't found in many AYCE places. You even get oysters and crabs here. I didn't try any non-sushi stuff they have (why bother), and I just stuffed myself with sushi. Overall, not bad for the price if you are in the mood for a lot of sushi. I'd go back there again.

Makino is the best Japanese Seafood Restaruant in Las Vegas. They serve a wide variety of seafood prepared in a variety of ways. In addition, the value beats any other Japanese restaurant I have ever eaten in. Including many othe major U.S. cities and Japan.
