“Worst Service Ever ~ Excel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

We entered the restaurant just after 6pm on a Saturday Night, there were a few people in there and we had a group of 9 people to feed. It took them 15 minutes to come round to us and order our food. It was coming up to 40 mins with no food as of yet. We were talking to others at their tables that had been longer and they said that they had been waiting an hour and a half and had nothing. We then waited another hour to only receive half of the order and cold food. We left in most displeasure, we payed them for what was eaten, which was the bear minimal and left. Never returning to this restaurant!

“One of the best places to eat around Excel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

If you are at the Excel center for some reason and you have a hard time finding good food around Maki Yaki is the place to go. Authentic japanese food. We had low expectations going in as we were greeted by a not so oriental host. The main cook was obviously from that side of the world and sure seemed to know some trade secrets while also updating to a more modern approach with some asian fusion influences.
We were the only guests there when we arrived but we were quite early in the evening so perhaps it picks up later. Overall great food and good value.
