Maki on Fifth brings a breath of fresh air to all the endless number of sushi joints clamoring for attention on the Japanese heavy Thong Lor dining scene. The restaurant pays homage to Chicago style fusion maki sushi rolls, which dominate the extensive menu. The presentations are works of art, and chances are you've never had at least a few of the concoctions. Top choices include the Poseidon on Fire, in which crab, shrimp, and scallop meat get mixed into a zesty chilli sauce and then the whole thing is set on fire at one's table. Also of note is the Dragon Fly, bursting with cream cheese, avocado, and tempura shrimp, and for those who can handle uni sea urchin, a couple of Uni shooters will put you over the top. The decor is industrial New York inspired loft; both relaxing and easy going, and you're close enough to all your neighbours to gawk at their rolls, and probably decide to order yet another one for yourself.
- Thonglor's Best Restaurants: "It can be hard to find this place. Best to go to the Thong Lor skytrain station and take a taxi from there. Tell them to go to Thong Lor Soi 5. Once you turn down Soi 5, keep a lookout for a right turn about 300 meters down the street (you'll see a Maki Maki sign on your left side pointing out the street). The eatery is on the 3rd floor in a small community mall."
- Best for Thonglor's Best Restaurants Because: for creative sushi rolls, Maki on Fifth is a breath of fresh air.
