My quests to find a delicious tasting sushi restaurant have finally come to an end once I came across Maki! Since we PCSd to Turkey five months ago, I have been on the hunt of a really good sushi restaurant and I have failed each time. I tried multiple “sushi restaurants” around Adana, but all of them have failed at making the sushi rice with just the right amount of vinegar and texture.
I am surprised it took me this long to track it down. Maki has two locations in Adana; however, there is only one location currently serving sushi. The location serving sushi is the one located in an area called “New Adana” and the other location is closer to the lake. Both locations serve excellent food, so you will not be disappointed.
The nice thing about Maki is that they also offer other dishes on the menu such as appetizers, chicken quesadillas, grilled steaks & potatoes (for the hearty meat lovers), curry beef, organic tavuk, spaghetti Bolognese, salads, and a fair amount of Turkish entrées as well. Something for everyone – even the little kiddos.
I must warn you, the menu prices are not cheap. Of course, eating sushi anywhere (whether it’s in Japan, stateside or in Turkey) is NEVER going to be cheap right? Maki offers a variety of special rolls ranging from 25 -28 TL, Sashimi 22-34 TL, and Nigiri 12-18 TL. If your party has a big appetite, and they are in the mood to try different kinds of sushi rolls then you might be more inclined to order their sushi boats. Sushi boats typically range from 50 to 60 TL, and the most expensive is the Maki VIP executive set for 90 TL.
In my opinion, Maki is leaning more towards being an upscale restaurant. It is a fantastic restaurant reserved for a romantic date night, celebrating an anniversary or special occasion. Of course, children are welcome, the wait staffs are all very friendly, and the restaurant is very accommodating; however, younger kids might not fully appreciate the food or the atmosphere. Enjoy!
