I have always felt Mabui to be one of the premier Japanese restaurants in town. The fact that it may be the only one owned and managed by ethnic Japanese is certainly one of the factors.

Great food, excellent service, authentic atmosphere of a busy Japanese diner. Simple well done dishes to please the purist as well as a lover of wacky creations and crazy rolls. Will revisit many times until I have tried everything.

We showed up stressed on a tight time-line with a two year old. very impressed. possibly the best spicey tuna rolls we've had. We're picky about food and service and they delivered on all levels. Giving them 5/5 for Food, Service and Value. It wouldn't be fair to rate our experience any lower.

This place flies under the radar. Unassuming location and decor. But the food is always very good, fresh and reasonably priced.
