Maki Maki on Wisconsin (Bethesda)

Curious what people think of the new Bethesda sushi restaurant on Wisconsin - Maki Maki. I've had takeout from there a few times. It's a remarkable improvement over the previous Korean/Sushi joint that occupied the same spot (Ekiban). The fish is really fresh, the sashimi cuts are clean and generous. The rolls are a bit messy but given the fish quality it is hard to complain.

  1. We had good luck there too with the sashimi. And the servers try very very hard to please you.

    1. My family went there one night (mom, dad, boy-8, girl-2) and we all found something we like. The adults got into the seafood and the kids ate a chicken - noodle dish. It was very good. The fish was fresh, well prepared and all meals were tasty. I would love to see them do well. I hope they get reviewed in the Post soon.

        We went again last night -- very fresh sashimi and well made rolls

          I went over a month ago for take-out. We got prepared dishes. I think one was eel, the other salmon. One dish came with two pieces of inari, the other a California roll, maybe. I liked everything, though I found the salmon to be a bit on the dry side.

          My parents and sister went more recently and were satisfied. They had sushi and sashimi. Fish quality was very good but they wished the menu was more extensive. I plan to go for dinner next weekend and would be interested if others have visited recently.

            We went for dinner Saturday night and enjoyed the food. Service was pleasant and efficient. Overall, we had a good time.

            The four of us started with edamame, seaweed salad and a "dancing eel" roll. Then we shared the 20-piece sashimi deluxe platter and yellowtail combo or something (four pieces each of sushi and sashimi, and one maki roll). We found the sushi tasty, and generous in portion size. We actually had more food than we could eat (almost), though maybe our appetites tends to the lighter side. Most of the tables were occupied but there didn't seem to be a wait. We definitely plan to return. I would recommend Maki Maki if someone is looking for good Japanese food in the downtown Bethesda vicinity.
