Maiko is both hip and authentic, with a refreshing atmosphere high in energy and dedication. The food is a compilation of east meets west.

Go for the happy hour! I wouldn't say it's the highest quality sushi in Austin. But the service is generally good - I've never had a bad experience. Their rolls are just as good as places like Piranha. Their sake bloody mary's are the best. Their happy hour is pretty much every evening on weekdays, so very very much worth checking out.

I'm so glad to hear you love our happy hour, Michelle -- especially those Sake Bloody Mary's! That's a drink we love to serve. I know we can give you a 5-star experience next time, so hope we get a chance to welcome you back again soon! All the best, Benny, Owner

There's nothing better than knowing you're a big fan, Tiffany! You can always count on us for an excellent happy hour deal, and I don't blame you for suggesting the Sake Mac 'n' Cheese -- it's one of my favorites, too. Thanks for your support, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon! Best, Benny, Owner

I took my boyfriend there for the first time last night, and we were seated quickly. However, we then watched as 3 more tables were seated after us, and then watched them receive water, drinks, and then even some food! We realized that we had been forgotten about, or no server was assigned to us. We noticed it had been about 25 min, so I went up and said something to the man at the host stand. He didn't seem concerned at all, no apology was given, no comped drinks....nothing. We flagged down a server, who stopped everything she was doing and took our order - she was awesome (the only reason I'm adding 1 star). The most frustrating part of all of this was that we felt like even if we complained, no one cared (after the unconcerned response from the host and asking 3 different servers if someone could take our order before finally finding someone helpful). The special last night was was mediocre and cost $8 per piece. We ate a little, paid, left, and finished our meal at Bar Chi, which was much better.

I was sorry to hear about you and your boyfriend's experience with us, Kendall. What's more discouraging is that you felt like no one cared to take your order or listen to your concerns. I assure you, I take the satisfaction of our guests very seriously, and I appreciate you bringing this instance to my attention. It sounds like there was initially some miscommunication about who was assigned to your table, and while I'm glad a server graciously stepped in and took care of you, I apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience this caused you. I will follow up with my team to ensure that you always receive excellent and attentive service from us, and I sincerely hope you will give us another chance to impress you like I know we can. All the best, Benny, Owner

I would give Maiko four stars but their service leaves me to think they need to be taken down a notch. Twice now we've gotten servers who seem overworked and relatively inattentive. I like their sushi a lot, the different "dragons" are tasty. I enjoy their baby octopus more than BarChi. The atmosphere is nice in a general way, it serves its purpose as a lounge.
Response from the owner - a year ago
Although I'm glad you enjoy our food and atmosphere, Aran, I'm sorry you feel our service is somewhat lacking. Thank you for the honest feedback—I'll be sure to pass it along to my staff. Even when we're busy, we want to be as attentive as possible, and it sounds like there's room for improvement. Anyway, the next time you're craving sushi, I hope you'll keep us in mind. We'd love another chance to impress you. -Benny, Owner

Maiko Sushi Lounge is a below average sushi restaurant that has the hope of being considered a "lounge". The service is usually on the slower side and the owner/gm can be rude. With Austin's copious supply of sushi restaurants I wouldn't recommend it as Maiko Sushi is a stones throw away and Uchi is a short cab. Better sushi options: 1. Uchi (premium) 2. Sushi Junai (quality all you can eat sushi) 3. Maiko (low cost above average sushi)

As you can imagine, we’re concerned to see we only provided you with a 3-star experience. That’s certainly not the impression we wish to leave, and we’re eager to make this right. A second chance to impress would truly mean a lot to us -- I'm sure we can really wow you. All the best, Benny, Owner

Excellent happy hour with a friendly staff. Don't forget to try the sake mac and cheese - incredible! Lovely selection of fish and roll choices. I enjoy coming here every so often for a sushi fix!

I'm always on the hunt for decently priced and good quality sushi. This place hit the spot - particularly their reverse happy hour. Rolls are $4 at that time and a lot of apps are inexpensive too. A tip for large parties - they don't split checks!
