Very efficient - excellent beef and salads - kid friendly - definitely would go back - was non smoking as far as I could tell which isn't always easy to find in Japan in my limited experience. Last orders were at 8.30pm so don't go to late!

We found this place on our first night and wanted to try the Hida beef, we had the mixed grill option and I also had a steamed rice with beef and egg. The rice bowl was delicious. The book was excellent though a little too rich for our taste. There were mostly foreigners in the restaurant but as it's attached... More

If you want to eat Hida beef, you can't miss this restaurant. They have English menus and their staff can speak quite good English. The environment is decent and relaxed. The price of the food is reasonable. You can order different parts of beef for BBQ. We ordered Hida beef salad, Hida beef and chicken for BBQ. The beef was... More

It was really the best beef I've ever eaten in my life. I had the steak – one of the most expensive options on the menu, but it was well worth it, and then, the price was significantly lower than I could have had at home (should I be able to locate such quality, which is doubtful!) Service was excellent,... More

We enjoyed our meal at Maruaki, but I can't understand what makes the place stand out and get such high ratings. The food was good, the service was efficient, and the beer was cold. Sounds like most of Japan, to me......

Diff grades of beef to choose from (I deliberately picked the best, & the 2nd best to see the difference, & sure there was some diff), diff ways of serving it (shabu, shabu, sukiyaki, or BBQ). They had English menu too!

Fun cooking on the grill. The restaurant accepts Visa and they have an English menu. Noticed that most of the top rated places on tripadvisor have mostly americans eating at them.

I had the beef cubes and vegetables. It was nice I look forward to trying some of the premium beef selection next time. The Ido Sochu was smooth to drink too.

We visited the restaurant based on TA reviews. We ordered the Hida beef set meal (200g, 2880 yen) which we cook on a BBQ is the middle of the table. The set also come with vegetables, salad, miso soup and rice. The quality of the meat was good and it was very tender. We will definitely visit the restaurant again... More
