Welcome ok, Miso soup was ok, but the rest of the bento, including sushis, was questionable. And really nothing special.More

Incredible sushi at really good prices. We went around 6:00 p.m. on a Monday and were seated immediately. Shaggy dog roll was our favorite and the sake mac and cheese should not be missed. Service was attentive and staff was friendly.More

My boyfriend and I went here during the Superbowl, so it wasn't too busy. We ordered from the happy hour menu and ate a lot, it all averaging out to around $80, which isn't too bad for sushi for two. We had a couple of...More

Been coming to Maiko for years and it's always quality sushi pretty quick. Pricier than some other places (other than Uchi) and it's not a chain. Always a plus in my book. Try the Exlisivo roll w/ escolar and jalapeño! Wonderful maguro and hamachi always....More
