It has appeared on the lists, in all my searches, it’s one of the capital’s best Asian restaurants according to many... after a bit so pleasant lunch down at the Bosphorus, we grabbed a cab all-the-way up next to Midpoint Mall where Ioki is located.  Toning Japanese or Asian about the place especially when we met three families with their kids, but I was excepted to try the food: Rice, noodles, teppanyaki and Asian salads with a wide selection of sushi and makis.


Sushi is good, really good! Simple bites, no mayonnaise, a little or no sauces with a subtle decoration on top of fried sweet potatoes. Eel and avocado,  run by potatoes, spicy mayo sauce... I loved the textures, the flavors, the generosity of seafood and rolls shapes

A casual sushi place, playing pop tunes and serving premium quality and tasty Maki rolls. I love their sauces, the warm rice, and the crunchy fried potato. White ginger is used. 


Excellent value for money! And make sure to try the wet wipes at the end.

Recommended is the verdict! I loved the simplicity and humbleness of the restaurant. Must try it is!
