Came here for a quick dinner. I ordered two rolls of sushi, and my friend ordered salmon teriyaki. Their sushi selection is very good, and the quality of the fish was also very good. We did not have any issues with the service, they ware both fast and friendly. Would definitely come back here!

Most importantly, fish is really fresh, dionysus, dragon and philly sushi are recommended. Ambiance is average, service is good and fast. Just keep ordering!

Not bad for a light lunch or dinner if you're traveling in San Francisco. English, Japanese and Korean speaking staff to help choose your choice or favorites.

We came here for an afternoon snack so as not to ruin our appetites for a planned dinner later in the day. We liked the food - ordered a combination of sushi, tempura, teriyaki - but the special sides (extra this, no that, some x on the side) didn't get paid any attention to. So for this I have to...

This place seems to be a little overlooked as it was easy to get a table when other nearby restaurants were packed with more than 45 minute wait. Not a hug sushi fan but my friends said it was good but we were all swooning over the shrimp tempura - light,crispy and hot!

The rolls were very delicious and the fish was incredibly fresh. The service was quick and efficient. The atmosphere was very laid back and very clean. Would go back next time we are in town.

I'm not a big sushi fan but my daughter and BFF are and thought it was great. But the real winner was the shrimp tempura - absolutely perfect. It was light crispy and flavorful. My companions agreed best shrimp tempura ever!

All well presented and delicious. We had the house green tea and also delicious. Service was fast and efficient, the food came quickly, no waiting time for a table. We did go... More

We could see Maru Sushi from our window at the Orchard Hotel. We went there the last night of our trip and had the best meal of our trip. Get the rolls pictured on the extra menu and hot sake.
