For the price with deals, I would still think it is a little on the high side as the taste is pretty normal for the sides and the mains. Low rating as the service is terrible. Rather pushy. Keep asking people to order when we...More

The food here is great for the price and the all-you-can-eat salad bar was the cherry on top of a delicious meal. The roasted pumpkin salad is to-die-for and the miso soup they serve is rich and tasty.

Description
Maru seamlessly crafts Japanese modern cuisine to create beautiful dishes in an unforgettable setting. Conveniently nestled in Tanjong Pagar, this 80-seater restaurant is an outright stunner. Embracing quality and productive perfection, Maru’s witty sensuality is translated into sharing plates of over-the-top character maki and sushi rolls. She also prides herself in savoury signatures like the white tuna tataki and wagyu truffle don. Whether you’re looking for an eatery with friends or just a quiet, solitary dinner after work, the superb yet reasonably-priced fare gives you the perfect reason to let your hair down. Forget about boundaries and experience the unreserved openness of youth with pop music, unbounded sparks of energy and liveliness.
