In the mood for sushi but not in the mood to head to Center City? Makiman Sushi restaurant right on Oxford Avenue near Rising Sun Avenue is the perfect dining destination to satisfy your sushi cravings. Open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner, this casual, cozy little Japanese eatery offers takeout in addition to sit-down meals.
The restaurant itself is very small, but it does have a warm and inviting atmosphere. Even if you’re not in the mood for sushi, Makiman offers a variety of cooked Japanes-style dishes. But I would highly recommend getting the sushi dishes.
The seafood at Makiman is fresh and delicious, prepared well and doesn’t leave a bad after taste in your mouth. The service was wonderful, timely and friendly. Unlike other sushi bar, where there is often a long wait for food, at Makiman, my food was prepared and served in a very acceptable fashion. continue reading »

This cross of Japanese and Chinese food restaurant is located in the Roosevelt Mall at 2117 Cottman Avenue. Jannie’s seeks to accommodate the public with take-out, as well as being open seven days a week for both lunch and dinner. There is plenty of parking in the spacious lot out front, as Jannie’s is located in a mall.

The silverware and plates were clean, as were the glasses. Jannie’s is a casual environment that offers a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for its diners. It even has a small teapot and cups that the staff brings over to your table when you are ready to order. The tea was very warm and always kept full, although the flavor was kind of flat. The food was served warm and punctually upon ordering.
