With over twenty years of experience, Chef Makoto Okuwa has developed his own take on Japanese cuisine, where traditional Edomae-Sushi meets innovative flair.
Nice place and suberb food. Excelent ingredients. Friendly and attentive staff
The food, staff, and atmosphere were amazing. The drinks were also outstanding. I highly recommend Makoto's for lunch and dinner. There's a great view of the city on the patio.
Makoto can be consider one of the best restaurants in Panama. The ambience, the service and in special the food is very well prepared, brought to the table in optimal conditions and delicious..
Chef Makoto’s introduction to the intricacies of Japanese cooking, especially sushi, began in his hometown of Nagoya, Japan. At the age of 15, Makoto began an apprenticeship with Sushi Master Makoto Kumazaki; his study continued under the tutelage of legendary Sushi Master Chef Shinichi Takegasa.
After ten years of training in Japan, Makoto moved to Washington, D.C. where he began to work closely with Iron Chef Morimoto and was soon asked to assume the Head Sushi Chef role at Morimoto New York and Morimoto Philadelphia.
