Excellent, Fast Sushi Near Campus

Fresh, creative maki rolls, nigiri, and sashimi. Lunch boxes are well made and satisfying. Meat and noodle dishes are quite tasty. Fast, friendly service. This is one of my regular places for lunch with friends.

My wife is not a big fan of sushi. Prior to this meal she had experienced sushi at a different place and did not like it. On this trip, surprisingly she tried it one more time. Much to our surprise she liked it. It is amazing what sushi artists can do with their food. We had a California grouping of... More

Maru sushi is a popular restaurant walking distance from Purdue, and one of a few places I visit repeatedly during the school year. I like to go with friends and colleagues, and it's presentable enough that I'd take someone there for lunch who was interviewing for a job at Purdue. Their food is nicely done, with a good array of... More

OK - I'm comparing this restaurant to the ones at home in Boston. The sushi here was great, big portions and really cheap prices. (Cheaper than what I pay at the grocery store in Boston) I really enjoyed the playboy roll. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Get there early or you wait standing up (and it's crowded).

If you're a local, go! If you're visiting campus, or one of the great attractions in Lafayette/West Lafayette, make time to eat at Maru Sushi! Without question, one of the best restaurants I've eaten at. Sushi is absolutely fantastic, prices are very reasonable, and service is top-notch. In a cool location, with lots of neat stores surrounding it. WE LOVE... More

All around a great place for stellar sushi. My wife and I go at least once per month. We highly recommend it. Only downside is the size and lack of seating.

I've been at this restaurant many times when I was working at Purdue. During the semester the place is very busy at lunch, so there's a waiting list with names at the entrance. I've always ordered sushi, but they serve also Korean food. Rolls are usually tasty, in particular the elaborate ones such as the Playboy which I would definitely... More

A couple of friends and I were looking for some good sushi but our first choice was closed on Sunday so we looked up other options and found Maru Shishi in West Lafayette. After searching for a parking place (this place is in the "village" of Purdue's campus so parking is very limited during the school year) we found our... More

Haven't been there in several years and really enjoyed dining there again. There was a long wait but we were told to come back in 1/2 hour , we did and we were immediately given a table. A lively fun place. The staff is a bit hard to understand but they have sheets where you write the number on the... More

My boyfriend and I are from Southern Indiana, but whenever we visit Purdue we always stop by Maru Sushi. We've tried lots of the sushi rolls and loved them all! My favorites so far are the Purdue Roll and the Rainbow Roll! The ginger salad and miso soup were also good =)
