My partner and i visited this noodle bar and it had the best atmosphere i have ever experienced, i thought it was amazing that you could see your food being cooked and you could see that it was all fresh and was going to be piping hot. We had the Squid started and the dumpling starter. We could not fault... More

I have been to Maido about 6 times now and just love the food. Asian food is my favourite but this has got to be the best quality food in Torquay.

The food here is great and at such a reasonable price. Having been to Japan before this is just like the food out there, very authentic! Great service with a smile, good place for a date or with friends!

This is a gem of a place for a different and tasty lunch. We've visited numerous times now, trying different dishes each time, and have never been disappointed. The gyoza in particular are really good! Service is friendly and homely. My only criticisms are minor: The pricing is a little high given that this is casual dining (bench seats etc)... More

Bored of burgers? Fed up of fried chicken? Sick of sandwiches? Torquay has a fair amount of chain "restaurants" (including four - count them! - Subways!!) but, let's be honest, they're more often than not a bit bland, homogenised and dull at best. If you're in Torquay town centre and fancy a deliciously different lunch, head up toward the top... More

I have never tasted Japanese food before but after tasting the delicious meal I had I will certainly be having it again. I had something called ohm (apologies for spelling) curry and rice, it wasn't spicy or hot but it was full of flavour. Give this place a try you wont be disappointed.

Her friend had pork soboro udon noodles and loved it, and we also had some chicken in Japanese panko breadcrumbs. Freshly made in front of us. All tasty, very reasonably priced and served... More

Visited Maido yesterday for the first time with my partner- we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and now wish we had visited Maido sooner- we are already looking forward to our next visit :) The staff were also friendly and cheerful which was also a bonus, would strongly recommend.
