We went to Maido with some friends who aren't really into seafood-- but we are. The menu was really big but our server helped us pick out some great choices. The food was really delicious and there were some different roles for sure. The tapas-style small plates were amazing; sake steamed mussels, spicy spicy kimchi pork, and mushrooms&asparagus with brown... More

We eat sushi every Friday and thought perhaps it's time for something new. This was the worst $70 spent ever on sushi. We rarely use soy sauce because we'd rather enjoy the true flavor of the fish. Their fish had no flavor, so we were forced to use soy sauce. The rolls were smaller than we'd ever been served and... More

I love this place, and it's right in my neighborhood. The eclectic menu allows us to sample many different dishes, and we love them all. When I am in the mood for sake and sushi this is where I want to go.

No longer residents of Louisville, we drove an hour just to have Maido's one Friday evening. I had checked the website that day to check the hours and there was no indication that they would not be open. We arrived at the restaurant around 7 pm on Friday evening to find the entire restaurant closed - no note, no nothing.... More

I go here a few times a year and am always pleased. It is not a typical sushi place but the sushi is very well made. While there is a bit of variability depending on who is in the kitchen I have never been disappointed. I try to stay with traditional items but they have the gamut of more modern... More

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in Louisville. While most sushi restaurants are frying and smothering sushi rolls in sweet sauces, Maido keeps things nice and simple. They also offer small plates, so you can try different dishes to make a complete meal.

If you are looking for authentic Japanese, do NOT go here. I ordered a few items off the menu during happy hour. Oshinko (Japanese pickles), Kushikatsu sticks (pork and chicken), miso soup, kinpira (gobo root), yaki onigiri (grilled rice ball), and a Kirin (draft). The Kirin was good. The oshinko were horrible - cucumber was like dill pickles and ginger,... More

First let me preface this by saying when it comes to eating out I am extremely easy to please, and not picky in the least. After seeing a Groupon for Maido my girlfriend and I decided to check it out, as we love Sushi. It was one of the worst dining experiences I have had in long, long time. The... More

I normally don't like sushi. Here, I love it! Maido's has the largest most well described sushi menu I have ever seen. Along with sushi they offer many other traditional Japanese dishes and appetizers. Their wine, beer, and sake list is also extensive. In summer we always sit outside and bring our dog and we never have to ask for... More

My wife and I went to Maido a couple of weeks ago for the first time. We had a relatively good experience, but this is more of a special-occasion place than a frequent-visit establishment. It's best to keep in mind that Maido is a sake bar with a sushi menu, not the other way around. If you come for the... More
