Choose a 5, 6 or 7 course meal or a la carte. Various flavors and textures ranging from salads to chicken, vegetables and sashimi. Small plates. Sit at the bar and watch your food prepared. Nice atmosphere. Pricing is not to bad. 7 course meal is around $70-80

Maru offers very traditional Japanese cuisine and it is very entertaining to see how chefs work. Food was tasty and I felt well looked after and everyone there was friendly. The problem is you have to pay premium for their performance. The amount of food you get for money is disproportionally small. I had a pre-fixed menu -- five courses... More

We went here because our other choices were closed for public holiday and were pleasantly surprised by the high standard of the food and the reasonably priced set menu. They don't make a song and dance about the food here - it's a casual place - but they should! Every dish was delicious from the white miso with yellowtail, the... More

Went there on business. Nice environment on a basement in Aoyoma, only locals were present. Took the 5 platter deal plus dessert, which was a bit revisited from the norm. Only liked raw fish, which tasted great, while all combinations were average to be nice. The special version of the miso soup (red miso) also did not taste that great.... More

I've been here with couple of friends and we decided to get their Tasting menu. Well, they claim to serve a Japanese fusion cuisine but the overall service - plate presentation and in particular the food was mediocre. By the way ... There is a table charge and the Final bill... quite expensive for the food

We chose a 5 course kaiseki and it was truly a delightful experience. We were seated by counter and all chefs' activities were on display, which showed transparency. Their attention to detail to the food being served was mesmerising and the taste - exquisite. My brother also tried the 'exotic' foods - not for the faint hearted - like intestine... More

This stunning, mid-century-inspired space in a basement just off Aoyama-dori is the setting for some awfully good tapas-style Japanese food. Lots of options, both set-menu and a la carte. We opted for the latter and got first-rate corn tempura and tempura mini shrimps, a roasted tomato and tofu salad with shiso (like a Japanese version of a Caprese), and some... More

We are traveling for business and always looking for a bit of culture and to find those restaurants off the beaten path. I love the neighborhood of Aoyoma and based on the recommendation of my Superfuture App - we made an reservation. #1, this place isn't difficult to find. The taxi dropped us off right in front of the building,... More

This is a really great place to eat : small restaurant, no tourists, full of Tokyo professionals in casual mode. Food is a modern Japanese take on classic cuisine. Slightly difficult to find but highly recommended.

looking for something with variety to entertain foreign business guests - then try this out. The food is presented in typically beautiful Japanese fashion with attention to detail but with emphasis on simplicity.

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
