Surprisingly good

The restaurant does not look much from the outside, but step inside and it is warm and inviting there are normal tables and chairs and 3or 4 semi-sunk tables Japanese style. We shared the Combo platter, a mixture of sushi and sashimi, quite expensive at £55 but enough for two of us for lunch. All... read more

I'm not a huge fan of sushi so when my friend recommended that we catch up over dinner at Maki I was perhaps a little apprehensive...! My nervousness was compounded by the few reviews I'd read online (not TripAdvisor I should add), which complained about expensive food and not great service! Fortunately, my experience was totally different to theirs. 1.... More

Black cod is amazing, though even a simple roll is nice here. Drinks are pricey, but the food is very delicious.

Always love the sushi here, and such friendly staff and really good service! More importantly, the quality of the sushi is impeccably fresh and definitely the tastiest sushi ever! Definitely try the Ocean Park roll and Volcano roll! I'll definitely be coming back, hungry for more!

We have been coming to Maki for many years now and it never fails to disappoint. The quality is outstanding, no need to go to the likes of Nobu. We had the party plater for 5 and we are taking some sushi home as we could not have it all. If you are around and want to try, you will... More

We had the deluxe platter, which is a good amount for three people. You should definitely sample the raspberry sake! The service was really good, they staff are really friendly! A little too expensive but great for a treat.

Funny how it's either average or very good. I would then choose 3.5 stars. True, it's actually pretty much Chinese based but it's fairly decent. Only gripe I had was with their reluctance to impart with copious amount of wasabi. Despite my repeated requests. Which was rebuked by them pointing out that there's a pinch of them in the dishes...

We came in to the restaurant and sat down quietly. I am disappointed by the size of the servings. They were just too small. The prawn tempura bento only had 2 prawns, 1 sweet potato, 2 peppers and a small slice of carrot. The soft shell crab was in a mixture of peppers and onions and was extremely salty. I... More

We went with a friend and had a good evening. We shared vegetable tempura, grilled aubergines (fantastic) and spinach starters. Then our friend had a 12 piece sushimi (specifying no mackerel or scallops) whilst we shared an avocado, prawn and crab main plus a crispy pork with rice and seaweed. After we left a waiter rushed after us (we were... More
