But I digress. I was just about to tell you that, despite it being a firm favourite, we rarely go out for Japanese in the evening but that looks set to change. We've been living in leafy Richmond for a few months now and have just happened upon a rather good neighbourhood Japanese restaurant: Maki
The restaurant is decorated in typical Japanese style, in reds and blacks, with a sunken seating area. The service is friendly and attentive, the menu extensive (in a good way) and the prices reasonable. I won't go into all of the dishes but highlights include the sashimi, which was incredibly fresh, black miso cod (less than half the price of Nobu) and ebi (prawn) tempura rolls. The only slight disappointment was the gyoza, which had been deep fried.
If you're in the area I highly recommend it for a reasonably priced taste of Japan.
