This restaurant has an interesting concept, where they have a limited menu and you stand in line to order at the register. After ordering you can find a table to sit down and eat. Since the menu is very limited, the dishes come out shortly after ordering. So, actually, you end up waiting less for your food than in a regular sushi place, but you spend that time standing in line.

The food is amazing and the prices are more than fair for the quality. The shrimp tempura are a great side for the sushi rolls, with a very nice spice to them. Worth visiting.

I am a big fan of the Makisu rue du Bailli despite the absurdly long queues. I was so happy when a new and bigger restaurant opened chaussée de Waterloo.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed by the quality of the food served:
-The makis had a lot more rice and less fish than before
- The rice was overcooked so very mushy
- Most of the new combinations that we tried didn't taste much, just like rice and whatever sauce was on top. kinda frustrating when you are used to the good quality served in the other branches. I think they tried to make it fancy and original but in the process they lost the good, simple flavours that I loved
- The wakame seaweed salad is super tiny.
- The seating area is a bit dirty, when we came in the evening there was a lot of food on the floor
-Still very long queues in the evening...can't wait for home delivery

On the positive side: love the new design, fast service

Makisu is a great restaurant to have lunch at with friends or family. It is always busy, but you don’t have to wait that long. Offering a varied range of modern sushi, as well as donburi bowls. The staff is very kind and the price is actually quite reasonable!

Makisu is my favourite place to eat in Brussels. They have very unusual and delicious rolls. Especially, I recommend Spicy Pablo❤️ but also others are very good:)

Tasty, original, good service, great price! Loved my sushis and the service is very friendly. The only inconvenience is the long queue but it’s totally worth it. Will definitely be back
