3.5 stars. The food was pretty good. I had 5 types of sushi (scallop - very good, octopus - kid of bland and tough, albacore - okay, seared yellowtail - good and unagi - okay) and the dynamite roll (very good). The service was very slow as it took a long time to get my order. There was one hostess/waitress... More

This is the WORST place ever to eat!!! Being a lover of sushi and living quite close to this establishment, I have given them soooo many chances . However. it fails over and over again. For starters, the sushi chef should be fired. There is nothing but fat and veins and grisly chewy spots all thru the Sashimi. It's disgusting.... More

My son and I had dinner at Maru's, we put our name on the list even though there were empty tables and many empty seats at the sushi bar. After five minutes of nothing happening I asked when we could be seated and then they seated us, not sure what they were waiting for... There were four sushi chefs and... More

When you travel for work, most of the time you stumble into places that you regret eating there. This time, on our way from LAX to San Diego (driving) we exited in Costa Mesa and looked for a Japanese Restaurant; we found Maru Sushi and I was happy to have "landed" here. The sushi was fresh and tasty. My g/f... More

The sum and substance: This place is pretty bad. Sushi isn't fresh or as good quality as other nearby places, and they're mispriced/overpriced. Came here because it was Friday after 7pm and we knew our preferred sushi spot, Sushi Town (off the 55 fwy), would be too busy. We decided instead to go to Maru Sushi after excitedly discovering that... More

This place changed ownership a couple months ago and it has really improved. It is so close to us and easy to get to we ate there all the time. Service and quality had taken a dive and we had written it off. Heard it was under new management and wow what a difference. Same basic menu but better quality.... More

was the first time to eat here and to my amazement, it was pretty good. I went with a very good friend of mine visiting from Brazil, as we both were craving for sashimi. the service was fast and the staff were friendly.. Will be planning to go back in the near future....

We dropped by for a lunch takeout and were very impressed with their lunch specials. They have two options: a $6.95 bento box (1 entree) and an $8.95 bento box (2 entrees). With each box, you get salad, rice, a pot sticker, miso soup and a few other extras. The entree choices include teriyaki, short ribs, don katsu, and a... More
