Good but a little overrated

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... read more

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

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.

After a disappointing visit to Ajikura Tengoku Yakininiku House we ended up at Maruaki. There were a few recent average reviews on Trip Advisor – this was not our experience. We were immediately seated without a reservation (6.45pm on a Thursday night). Atmosphere is more-lively than Ajikuratengoku Yakininiku House. The service was super. They have a buzzer on each table... More

We ate here for dinner and came back for lunch the next day. For dinner get the premium hida beef combo for two. For lunch try the bibimbap bowl. The stone bowl is hot! The beef is cooked by the hot bowl mixed with rice and veggies. Quality beef and not too expensive!

We walked in on a cold night at 8pm and were told to wait, and also that last order needed to be placed before 8:30pm. A couple of minutes later, a staff member told us the restaurant was full, while we could see people paying at the cashier! Well no food for us,and less business for you Maruaki! A rude... More

After reading the review, I was excited to visit and sample the hida beef at the restaurant. it's an open concept restaurant with many tables, similar to a canteen, since it was very crowded and noisy. Most of the diners were non Japanese. The food was good but definitely over-priced. The waitresses were indifferent and the level of service was... More
