Just came back from there. I had family visiting, and wanted them to have a nice Japanese meal. They all enjoyed it a lot, and we got two complimentary dishes on the house. We had a very pleasant evening. I have also ordered takeaway a few months ago and I remember being very fresh and tasty. Will definitely come back... More

Apparently what a friend of mine told me about opening a restaurant with a foreign theme (i.e. Italian in U.K.) is tue: it implies adapting the original flavours to the local taste, resulting in hybrids which may be loved locally, but may also be a massive disappointment of the native country of the theme proposed by the restaurant. I looked... More

Just wanted to leave a short comment as quite a few reviews talked of poor service. We went on a Sunday evening and it was quite quiet but food and service were exceptional. Would definitely recommend.

In the past I was a regular visitor to Maki (twice per month), but then it lost a lot of it's draw after the latest refurb (now a few years ago), which created the lugubrious ambience that still pervades today. Despite this, the quality of the food and the reassuring presence of Bobby the manager ensured my continued (but much... More

Since the manager has left. This restaurant is going downhill fast. The service is not was it used to be. I would recommend Uni in twickenhamm. We have just enjoyed a great meal there. All the sashimi very fresh and my husbands pork noodles were delicious

Unfortunately, your description of this bad experience did not include any details. We are appreciated if you could provide us with more specific information regarding your... More

Having seen the reviews for this Japanese restaurant, we decided to give the place a try. However, we were disappointed since the standard of food was average yet the prices were a little on the overpriced side. The 12.5% service charge was not justified for the lack of attentive staff and slightly outdated decor. The menu choice was very basic... More

Have just had a dinner with friends and was impressed by the poor service. The waiter spilt the whole bowl of miso soup (which I did not touch) over me and instead of apologising has just thrown 'you ok?', leave alone offering a tissue to dry myself or asking if I want a new soup. Then the waitress took away... More

Even with Aperol spritz- bit bet Japonese we know and a 10% service charge added to the bill, we throughougly recommend a... More
