I came here in 2012 for valentine's day and then again in 2016 on my honeymoon. Both times the experiences have been incredible. We were so excited to see the bartender-now-manager (time flies), Hashimoto, was still working there. Still as warm and energetic as he was the 4 years prior. The food is outstanding. I recommend this spot to anyone... More

This is a simply wonderful restaurant. I have visited Tokyo five times over the past 7 years and eaten here on each occasion. To my mind, it is as pleasurable a dining experience as you will have anywhere in the world. I have been fortunate enough to eat at a good number of three michelin star restaurants - in europe,...

We chose one of the set meals, which although a little large with perhaps a bit too much food, was varied , tasty and interesting. The service was attentive and the sakes chosen with the waiter's help complemented the food well. The salmon and rice dish, served later in the meal was exceptional and the pear and jelly desert a...

After reading the reviews my expectations were very high. We went there with my wife for dinner. I had the tasting menu and she had a la carte as she is vegetarian. It was an exception they kindly accepted to make as you usually can't have a mix of tasting and a la carte for the same table. Positive points:... More

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

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.
