Looks Can Be Deceiving – I had read good things about it, so I went with my family. When I saw the outside I was completely bummed. It looked so small and unattractive! We decided to check out the interor though, and we were pleasantly surprised. Hardwood floors, simple seats, and clean lines make the architecture feel fresh. The windows are screened with rice paper patterns, so light comes in but you dont see the highway. The staff was helpful, the food was exquisite, and it was relatively inexpensive for Japanese food. If you aren't yet convinced, about half of the customers in the restaurant were Japanese. When large numbers of Japanese people come to eat at a Japanese restaurant, you can safely assume that the food is authentic and delicious. Overall, it is the best Japanese restaurant I have ever been to. Don't let the exterior appearance deter you, Mai is a gem!
Mai Wins the Blue Ribbon! – I travel 5 days a week for work and I try a sushi restaurant in every city I visit. Mai takes the blue ribbon. It is always fresh and tasty. The sushi chef will get inventive if you give him the go ahead and prepare some of the most innovative and delicious sushi I've ever had. Better than most restuarants even in NY and CA. They're other traditional Japanese fare is great also, I especially like the noodle dishes and the chilled tofu. Yummy!
