“Great Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've eaten here a lot. The sushi runs on a belt and there is a significant variety. The rolls are well done and the sushi fresh. You can also order from a menu or they'll specially make you sushi you want. Great spot.

“Best Kaiten sushi on Seattle's eastside!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Been going for several years, very familiar with most sushi places around Bellevue and this is by far best value.
Always busy, for dinner and lunch hours get there early or you'll have a wait.
Without alcohol one can easily eat their fill for less than $20 with tip. Sushi very fresh, rice has none of that "plastic" taste of other places. The Orange chicken is a decadent splurge (when fresh and hot!), if you don't see it all you have to do is ask your closest server!
A great place before a movie or quick healthy lunch alternative.

“1st Timer approved”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

I have never ate sushi before and was very curious. So we chose sushi maru. It was a conveyor belt system and its priced by tray colors. A lot of fun, strong drinks, and fun atmosphere. Our waiter was personable and funny. I will be back

“Sushi lacks creativity”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

The sushi here seems as though it wasn't made with any love behind it. Items you order are made fresh and taste great so long as there isn't any available on the conveyor belt. Or else, they just grab an old prepared dish from the belt. The conveyor belt itself lacks variety and it can take awhile before the chef adds something new. Sometimes, the joy of going to eat sushi served on a conveyor belt is to be surprised by something you've never seen before. That does not happen here.
