This our first time back to Maru since Covid19 March 2020. We enjoyed our meal and our server was excellent - very happy and smiling and getting what we needed in short order. We look forward to possibly bringing to dinner two members of our family who are visiting us. Keep up the good work.

A little pricier than I remember it and service was a little on the slower side but still good.
ALWAYS great sushi.

I wasn’t very happy with the menu since there is limited items on it. Sushi rolls majority are spicy and so is the side salad. For the prices at this place you can get better rolls-fish selection at other places.

Maru has the most delicious sushi and the most intimate atmosphere. We visited for our wedding anniversary and it was such a special date. We each got the crouching tiger roll, which is our favorite and it did not disappoint. My husband got an old fashioned and I got the blackberry whiskey smash to drink and both were AMAZING. Such a perfect meal!

Always a good meal at Maru! Our crabby mushrooms and sushi rolls were delicious, as usual. Our server was incredibly kind and friendly. My only “complaint” ever is that prices are so high....but it’s our favorite sushi place so we keep coming back!

We were very disappointed that they did away with the happy hour specials & even more so that they offered nothing for Mother’s Day. Plus the size of rolls are much smaller now. I feel like for the price, it isn’t worth it anymore.

The food made my stomach hurt and the crab salad in my roll tasted too fishy. Covered in sauces that masked all flavor

Had reservations for my anniversary at 8:15pm on Friday evening. Arrived to the restaurant by 8:13 and was told it was canceled and our table was given up. After questioning and continued discussion we were then told that the reservation was not canceled however we had to wait for our table. We were told to wait outside in the cold until someone came and got us rather than notifying us via phone. We stood outside for around 20 minutes. Food was good service was disappointing. There was also mistakes made in our orders and had to ask for our original plates.

We showed up before our reservation, and were surprised as they were able to get us in right away. I think we surprised the server as it seemed like they weren’t quite ready for us so it took a bit of time to get rolling. After that it was wonderful.

Service was unacceptable. Took 20 minutes to place a drink order. Many customers arriving after us received drinks and food before us. Quality of food was edible, probably because we were starving by the time we received our food. We have been frequent visitors of Maru in Okemos, they are by far the best!

We sat at our table for over 15 minutes before anyone asked us what we wanted to drink. We chose maru because of the gluten friendly menu and when we asked if it was the same as online, they told us it was. When we ordered, she said they didn’t have that roll and came back with a gluten friendly menu with most of it scratched out. Our waitress was more attentive to the larger table behind us, so we did not eat until an hour after we arrived. We’ve been here before several times and have never had an experience like this, so we are pretty disappointed.
