it was evening time and I’m standing outside next to Maki’s big glass door, looking at the Bahrain world trade Centre, and said to myself: ”I think, it will be interesting”. Soonest the door opened I had a reality slap. The first think came in my mind was: why they didn’t pay the designer his full money!!?? Poor lighting. It was so dark that I was worried in bumping in someone or step on some feet’s. Wasn’t sure at what I was looking but for sure I saw an ugly cement floor that have nothing on it. A funny light shape hanging from the ceiling couldn’t figure it out, it look like octopus or jellyfish but for sure it’s doesn’t look nice. The only place had a good light was the kitchen.
Stars 4 /10
a warm friendly staff, they have good knowledge in what they are serving you. The timing between serving the dishes was very good. They are alert toward the customer’s needs.
you can get confused when you are getting out from the toilet. For a full night house, it will be a problem, so if the toilets are busy you can’t do nothing, your ”number 1” and ’’number 2” or trying to wash your hands, all that will be on hold.
We went to the Maki Bahrain’s 15 Magical Moments of Fusion Cuisine Dinner. It’s a selection between old and new dishes from their menu.
Started our dinner with CHAINE FOREST HAZE SALAD: it was beautifully presented with nice Smokey aroma coming from it. The flavors are well balanced (the dish was light and delicious) our expectation want high for what’s will be coming. Unfortunately our magical moment ended in that moment, when they started presenting the rest of the dishes.
TEMPURA PRAWN TACOS
HAMACHI ABURI SASHIMI
NEW WAVE MAKI
AMER MAME MAKI
SMOKED CREAMY LOBSTER CHICKEN CURRY FRIED RICE.
(Nothing outstanding, all of the dishes has been overpowered by olive oil, oregano, sesame or chili.)
CHAINE SWEET EARTH SURPRISE (it was light green tea tiramisu well presented).
I appreciate all the hard work and effort from Maki’s staff that they put to create these dishes. In general Maki is growing with his fusion style and his customers. For me it’s not the end with Maki, I would like to try another new 15 Magical Moment. But for me now the FUSION became CONFUSION.
