We went here for dinner not realizing that it had changed management. It used to be Matuba, a very nice Japanese restaurant. We were very disappointed in the changes. The food was okay, nothing special. I had veggie sushi which was fine. My husband had grilled eel which he said was all right but not nearly as good as it... More

Arlington (and Seven Corners) has quite a number of Vietnamese and Thai restaurants but not as many Japanese... And most of those are heavily Americanized and generally banal. Maruko (between the Drafthouse and Thai 54) is surprisingly good. The interior decor is nothing to write home about, and the quality of the food can be inconsistent, but Maruko gets more... More

One of my go to places for sushi. Consistently very good quality fish, well prepared and served, and reasonably priced. Complimentary salad bar a big plus. Changes in ownership over the past couple of years have not significantly affected operations.

We eat here order take-out at least once a week. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. We have been going here for over 20 years.

During a recent visit to the area, I had the good fortune of discovering Maruko. What a treat! We sat at the bar and ordered chirashi sushi with an extra request for kanpyo (seasoned dried gourd strips) The smiling chef complied with a bowl of perfectly seasoned rice topped with succulent fresh sashimi.

My wife and I have been going to Maruko (formally Matuba) for more than ten years. We've tried other sushi restaurants in the area but none come close to the freshness and quality of the sushi here. Even the ginger tastes better! Highly recommended.

Matuba's got a great lunch special going. Their bento boxes are delicious and reasonably priced. Salad is included. The staff has always been very friendly and efficient. One of our favorite 'go to' restaurants on our playing hooky days off!
