Maison de Sushi

It is so difficult nowadays to keep up with all the new outlets opening in the country since they are quickly popping up like mushrooms and it seems it’s not going to stop any time soon. Thankfully, I follow a ton of food bloggers on various social media platforms to be updated of what has recently opened.

One food blogger that has become a close acquaintance of Allyson and I is Rae of Qatar Eats! I blame her for introducing me to Maison de Sushi after I read her review about it (click HERE for more).

Maison de Sushi is located at the 2nd floor of 01 Mall in the Ain Khalid area. Judging from the price tag of QAR 130 for all you can eat, I say I was quite tempted to pay them a visit.

2 weeks ago, I asked my brother to accompany me since we needed that one-on-one bonding sesh as I usually hang out with my sister. Plus he also has the same affinity I have for sushi so it was a no-brainer to take him with me.

I am not sure how to describe the interiors of this place hence I will just let the pictures speak for itself. I appreciated the fact that the outlet was clean, bright and it wasn’t crowded at the time of our visit.

This outlet does not offer an a la carte menu therefore every day of the week is “all you can eat” day it seems. Basically, you can choose whatever dish is written on the menu and if you still feel hungry you can simply order for more. By the way, the price you pay includes drinks as well. Such an affordable deal!

We ordered a lot of food to the point that we left the outlet with particularly large “food babies” and with huge smiles on our faces.

Honestly speaking, some of the food items we ordered were a bit of a hit & miss but overall I enjoyed most of it, especially the maki rolls!

The Squid Ring Tempura wasn’t overcooked and did not have that “rubbery” texture. It wasn’t chewy at all. I didn’t like the Shake Teri Maki (grilled salmon) that my brother ordered not because it wasn’t good but I personally prefer my salmon raw than cooked so it wouldn’t be a surprise to know that I loved the salmon sashimi. What actually shocked me is how fresh their tuna sashimi was since it didn’t have that “fishy” smell / taste. The octopus sashimi however was quite hard to chew and swallow. The Scandanavian maki was a bit spicy though tolerable and the Asian maki was sweet thanks to the mango used.

For dessert, I had the banana tempura with vanilla ice cream based on Rae’s recommendation. I must say I was pleased with it since it wasn’t too sweet at all but crispy!

The staff were truly friendly and attentive. We didn’t feel unattended to even though we were seated at a far end corner table. Not only that, service was really quick; we got our orders in less than 15 minutes!

The only major con I can think of is that the location is very far from our house but even though this is the case, there is no doubt in my mind that I’ll return and have more of the maki rolls just because we weren’t able to sample the majority of it! A (4 / 5) is what I’ll rate them. Not a perfect score because of all the mentioned points above.
