the decoration is nice, but gets disappointing when it comes to food. very small portions at very high prices, which is the opposite of korean food usually. the side dishes are reduced to one or two, again with very little, and if you ask for a refill you have to pay for it (and well....) this could be a very...

Fresh food. Delightful atmosphere. Efficient and welcoming staff. Everything mixes together perfectly like a bowl of rice with veggies and egg!

This place is great for discovering something a little different. The service and ambiance are good and the prices are reasonable. Try the plum wine, which combines nicely with savoury dishes!

Good food, small portions and very expensive. The staff are very nice and efficient. The interior is light and welcoming...very nice on a winter day in Belgium!! I would like to go back, but I'd like to find a cheaper Korean restaurant.

We went there several times and had a good experience every time, although strangely some dishes did not have the same taste the second time we ordered them. We very much enjoy the atmosphere and the place is nicely decorated. We use to go for lunch during the week-end with our toddler, who also greatly enjoys eating there, and staff... More

You might not get "a lot of food" for your money at Maru, but the food is delicious and the service is excellent. I have been there several times already, and I'll definitely return! There aren't many options at all when it comes to Korean food in Belgium, and I think Maru is definitely the best choice. My absolute favorite... More

We really like this place, we have been here several times, and service, food and atmosphere are really good. Is a great address to discover korean food. The only reason we do not come more often is the price, since for 40€/person you have much better option in Brussels.

Booking required for this popular Korean restaurant, ideally situated at the border of Ixelles and Uccle on Chaussée de Waterloo. Brussels has few Korean restaurants, so Maru is a welcome addition. The setting is simple and the staff very friendly. Tables are a bit close to each other but all in all a good look and feel. Their speciality is... More

You might not understand the menu very well when you first enter a corean restaurant, and the owner will guide you perfectly! I don't really remember the names of the food we took, but it was all good and quantity was sufficient! Good service, fast and always available. Decoration is made of bamboo which gives it a nice atmosphere. I... More

Went there for the 3rd time in 6 weeks not because it is great, but Maru and Seoul are the only Korean places in Brussels and being Korean, I need my fix of kimchi and other stuff once in a while. The first time was fine except for my main, stewed short ribs that were way too chewy and tough... More
