This is a very good restaurant serving excellent Japanese food at a decent price. We had a bento lunch box for 11$ with miso soup, rice, salad and a choice of 3 meals between different types of rolls, teryaki meat, sashimi, etc. The fish is particulary good and fresh. The service was really friendly and helpful.

Being from a country with a huge variety of Japanese restaurants in Asia, Maru Sushi kinda only met our expectations. Appreciate that the chefs were trying to create interesting rolls with a wide variety of tastes and ingredients, it just did not impress us. However, it is still a good place to visit. Taste wise, it was good and the... More

Located centrally to Union Square this restaurant dishes out decent sushi for not having Japanese sushi chefs. They specialize in many different rolls and accommodate special requests.If you want decent sushi at a decent price, Maru Sushi delivers.

Ate lunch at the Maru Sushi on May 18th. Had the Lion King Roll and Gyoza; both were delicious! Many other interesting rolls on the menu that I wish I had time to try!

Located very centrally, directly on Powell. Simple place, atmosphere OK but not very cozy or special. Sushi of relatively good quality. Staff OK, friendly but not always 100% efficient. OK for a quick lunch stop on Powell - also compared to some other places in this rather touristy area.

Visiting from out if town and this restaurant was in the neighborhood. Sushi was very fresh and well prepared. Also had the soba with beef and it was also good. Relaxing and welcoming environment.

I had a regular dinner, but not a place to repeat. Correct service and food, nothing else. The food was regular and I expected something better

Between living on Nob Hill recently and having traveled to San Francisco for a decade, I must have walked by Maru Sushi a hundred times. Dropped in for a quick dinner before the symphony and was very pleasantly surprise. Ample and tasty rolls with fresh fish; supremely friendly service. You wouldn't think it from the unassuming exterior, but it's well... More
