The first thing you notice when you walk into Izakaya MAI is the warm, welcoming atmosphere Ito-san has created for his customers. It is a great place to meet with friends and catch up with them while enjoying variety of small-plate appetizers and sake. I think that one of the reasons why people keep going back to Izakaya MAI is its huge selection of Japanese Sake and Shochu. Also, Mai reminds me of Izakaya restaurants in Japan. It’s truly authentic and that’s another reason why Mai is so popular among Japanese people.
