    Get Matsuri off of this list. The last time I went there they had Cuban men wearing Kimonos serving the food. No men wearing a dress……….Talk about an appetite suppressant. Sushi Ko on Bird road should be on this list.

  • Sheila

    I agree with Tim. SUSHI KO is a gem

    Makoto in Bal Habour is fabulous! Many wonderful dishes with very traditional and rare menu items with wonderful service. The prices are not bad either as you would expect in bal harbour

    • Cobra

      A roach crawled out of the sushi bar while i was sitting there having some sake like three or four weeks ago. I took a picture. no lie. Makoto is overpriced and their sushi isnt fresh.

  • Cuba-san

    How did you even know they were Cuban, you ignorant racist, sexist idiot? What does that have to do with the quality of the food or service, which are excellent?

  • Anthony

    I agree that service is a problem at matsuri but the food is very good. As for cuban men wearing kimons, i’m a regualr and havent seen that much less know the ethnicity of who the servers are many of whom are asian. Chances are the person who claimed cuban men wearing kimons exist at matsuri probably doesnt know the difference between chinese and japanese food much less what cubans look like or not.
