The establishment is small and the service was friendly. Not much space to stand if you are waiting for a takeaway. The food prep was interesting to watch and could be seen from the seating. Was really looking forward to our sushi, however we were...More

This sushi and ramen place is authentic and inviting. Sitting round the chef as he makes delicious meals and passes it to us over the bar. Loved the music, friendly staff, and the best sushi I've ever had. Definitely recommend!

Maki maki is a fab restaurant. It only seats 9 people around the bar. They serve the freshest sushi and sashimi prepared for you by the chef. Prices are very good and service is friendly.

The both looked and tasted superb. The prices were slightly cheaper than the other top sushi places. However one thing that made all the difference was the traditional Japanese environment. Highly recommended, my fav sushi place.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
