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

Their good is pretty good, but watch the price, the menu online is different than the actual price. Really good miso soup and udon noodles. Beef teriyaki was just ok. Nice staff and quick.

It was our second time at Maru Sushi - returning 5 years later. Still a good place to eat sushi at decent prices. Friendly and fast service and really good quality sushi. A large menu to choose from. The restaurant is also clean. We had the "silver boat" of 36 pieces sharing between two adults and one child - size... More

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.
