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

Amédée, although I'm glad you felt welcomed and enjoyed your miso soup, I'm sorry you were less impressed with the rest of your meal. We take a lot of pride in the food we prepare, and I hope you'll give us another shot sometime. Until then, Benny, Owner 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.

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 rolls as well as the 3,2,1 salmon which was delicious! We had the teriyaki pork... More

I recently went here on a date to try sushi for the first time, and I must say I had the california roll, shaggy dog, orange dragon and terminator and enjoyed every single one. Though only thing I would be disappointed in was the pricing, though due to its location on 6th I'm not surprised. Also, again it was my... More

We were actually pleasantly surprised to find this place on a Saturday night and didn't have to wait for a table. We were greeted upon entering and seated fairly quick. We ordered two sushi rolls and both were very delectable and beautifully presented. The place was very busy but nonetheless the service was very prompt and attentive. A great place... More

I was staying at a hotel close by and decided to pop in for a beer and sushi. Sat at the bar and was acknowledged as soon as I sat down.

This was quite simply the worst meal I have had in Austin. It all started with the service (or lack there of). We arrived on a Tuesday night and they were not overly crowded. We were seated. We waited...and waited....and waited until someone finally came to wait on us after 15 minutes. The server took drink orders and then disappeared... 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. Big thumbs up.
