Tasty food, high prices in comparison with portion, average service yet they weren't busy at the time (tonight dinner). Location is convenient but the smell of cooking is strong and noticed as soon as you walk into the building GF entrance coz of a number of restaurants in the place. Other branches location might be better.

The food is excellent, and the menus are amazing. Only thing is that the atmosphere is a lit bit dark, unless if you are dining in the private dining side where is a sun light I am giving 4*.

I had the best eel plate I EVER had and a wide selection of fusion maki and sushi plates... The visitors from the U.S.... More

It's a great place to be there once or twice to discover if the food matches your taste then I am pretty sure you will do again. If not really then you won't regret it.

This is not your usual Japanese restaurant so if your looking for original Japanese food this is not the place to go. It may be a bit pricy but i personally think its worth it. The food is amazing and the staff are very friendly this is the reason i keep going back to maki (especially burj jassim)
