Great Hida beef

My Dad and I shared the 3200yen beef platter. It came with several types of vegetables too, which was a nice break from just the beef. I liked being able to cook it at your table, that was fun. I thought the beef was excellent, especially when you added the coarse salt on top. I enjoyed every... read more

We went to Maruaki to try the sukiyaki and we are very happy with the choice. The dish was for 2 persons and the quantity was more than enough to satisfy our appetite. Quality is overall good although the meat didn't really taste like A5 level. The cook took all the time needed to explain us how everything had to... More

We came here for lunch after tasting their Hida beef at the Saturday market, seems to be popular with the locals. There's a butcher out the front. You can cook your own beef or for something different, get the one that cooks on the magnolia leaf. Lunch sets were good value. Make sure you try the A5 grade beef cubes!

We ordered the Sukiyaki for two. The DIY service was prermptory but the taste of the food was good. As usual the beef quantity was miniscule, 120g per person. You can choose between three grades of beef at different prices, but I reckoned that there was no point in Grade A if the meat was just for stewing in soy... More

This is one of the most popular Hida beef joints in the area, with good reason. The beef tasted of its promised premium grade A5 quality. It's closer to the town centre and a 2min walk from Rickshaw Inn where I stayed. However, I think I would have enjoyed my meal more if the meal was not sukiyaki, and instead... More

We were staying at the nearby Tanabe Ryokan and asked the owner if she could recommend a restaurant for us that wasn't too pricey and she pointed us in the direction of the Maruaki as this was where here grandchildren often took her. So based on the fact that she often went there with her family, we walked in off... More

The beef was very good. We tried both premium and normal beef set. The normal set match our taste better, The price was reasonable. Service was very good. If you want to try Hida beef, I think this is the place.
