Maki-san has become a staple for me because it's so near to my school. & I've been trying to eat healthy whenever possible, and this provides a really good choice for lunch or dinner. They've two main categories for you to choose from - salad or sushi. I've tried both, & have sworn by their salad now. However, if you're in a rush, this may not be a good choice since each order is custom-made according to the form that you fill in. The queue & waiting time can be rather long during lunch & dinner
Salad, with unagi as the main. I still prefer my roast beef over unagi though. I love how the salad is so filling & if you have it for lunch, it can probably last till a very late dinner. But that's only if you choose the brown rice as the base, because brown rice is really high in fibre & definitely a much better choice if you want to eat clean, as compared to their white counterparts. Sushi ($9.90)
Their sushis are not as filling, and guys probably won't find it filling. However, if you choose the brown rice as the base of the sushi, you'll find that the taste is so overwhelming it'll cover the taste of the rest of the ingredients wrapped in it. It can be quite troublesome to eat too, especially if you want to bite it.
Overall, I'd recommend the salad as it's more worth it as compared to the sushi. If you're choosing Maki-san as an option to eat healthy or lose weight, please choose the ingredients properly. Do not order those cream-based dressings as they're really high in fat, & for the ingredients, do not choose those tempura ingredients as they're ladened with oil.
