Overall...nice quick friendly stop for lunch...food good in general but didn't like the 'cooked' sushi roll...I'd never had hot sushi before and I'll be avoiding it in the future...

This isn't their menu! The prices are higher than what this shows. The food was mediocre at best. When I brought up the Trip advisor menu, one person said their menu had been hacked recently. Another person said it had changed recently. I think they must be submitting their own reviews.

Maru sushi is one of the best Jap restaurants we've ever tried! The food is delicious and the prices are low (much cheaper than in Europe!). The place is nice, close to downtown, but we didn't have to wait for being seated. We went there twice during our 3-days trip in San Francisco. I would absolutely reccomend it!

Ate here on recent biz trip. Great selection of sushi, especially tuna and was treated to some new rolls I've never seen. Super fast kitchen even on a large order with a pretty full room. Nice work. Helpful staff.

Walking past a place that looks a bit empty, never gives me a lot of confidence. But it was early, needed a snack, and had a yearning for sushi, so we ventured in and sat at the sushi bar. We ordered a couple of standard rolls and were really pleased. Pleased enough that a couple of days later we returned... More

And at $3 per oyster, the cost is considerable. Rather than oysters served with cocktail sauce and horse radish, or simply served with lemon that you can put on or not as you please, each of these oysters is covered with an unappealing sauce. The sashimi was good, but the portions were small for the price, and the rainbow row... More

I've been past here a few times but never been in on my previous trips to San Francisco. This time however I took the plunge and had Dinner with two colleagues. It was a Tuesday so it was neither full nor empty. Our food was very good and have no complaints at all in that respect. If I had one... More

We went here since it was near our hotel and looked nice. Staff was night but they were way understaffed - just three people waiting/hosting the whole place. They forgot our order of Miso soup though were very nice when we said they needed to take it off the check. One roll was well made but one of their specials... More

After a 20,000km one shot trip from BKK, I arrived in SFO not too sure what my name was. Walking in I was greeted with an "irasshaimase" which I never fail to appreciate. Nonetheless, I started with my usual 'tricky' question to see how much these guys kept it 'authentic' - asking for Nattō- the latino gentleman behind the bar... More
