Review:"Maki, a contemporary fusion Japanese Restaurant, has just launched its soft opening, in the Beirut Homes Building, Achrafeih, in the heart of Beirut. The aura and feel of the restaurant is quite different to any found in Lebanon. Its cold and very eccentric, yet warm and comforting. Maki's decoration and style, like the food, is a fusion of various elements all sealed together greatly, with jagged and sharp elements. Most importantly, the food, goes without saying, is d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s! With freshest quality of foods, and very quirky presentations and amalgamations of special and exotic ingredients, Maki is definitely on top of their game. Yet the most vital thing that makes Maki illuminate the way it does, is its food. No Japanese restaurant can compare to Maki, for in Maki you can find ranges and varieties like no other. Whether you are a true lover of traditional Japanese food, such as Udon, Sukiyaki, or if you have no idea what those are, and prefer something cooked, such as teppanyaki, tempura, and vegetable fried rice, or are a lover of diverse types of maki's, Maki has the largest variety of food choices. With the highest quality in everything ranging from its Angus beef, to Foie Gras, Maki is definitely regarded as gourmet, with prices that are perfectly fit for such quality. When you first open the menu, there are countless numbers of items to choose from. Depending on the customers taste, there are salads with raw fish, such as the Oliver salad, and some without raw fish, such as the famous crispy salad, with its unique spiciness that will make your tongue squeal with delight. For chicken lovers, there are over five different plates that serve chicken, and for meat starters there is the negimayaki, flavorful with crunchy spring onion. As for teppanyaki, the Angus beef literally tastes like its melting in your mouth, and the lobster drowning in its creamy sauce is exquisite. These are just a few of the items that are among the cooked foods. New exclusively to Beirut's Maki, is Asafeeyr teppanyaki! Besides the fact that Maki holds traditional Japanese food as well as fusions and cooked foods, Maki is known for its eccentric and crazy maki's, of which there are a bounteous number, over 100; dissimilar ones, all with their own distinctive flavor and with special ingredients. Whatever you like in a maki, you are guaranteed to find it. From the simplest of plain, to the exotic and spectacular crunches, your taste buds can experience a variety of flavors like never before! So whether you are lovin' saucy zests, or sweet spiciness, Maki is here for all taste buds. "
