Pretty typical fare for San Jose Japantown. The sushi chefs are very friendly and do a great job. We've found some of the selections on the sushi boat seem "tired" so our best meals are when we order off the menu. The Katsu curry is great! And they make the best futo maki in J-town.

Just ate there last night, for what must be the hundredth time. The food was so good. The staff was attentive. They remember us and bring us the things that we like. The sushi orders were made in a timely manner. And I heard one chef speak Japanese, Spanish, and English all within a 5 minute time frame. WOW! So,... More

Sushi Maru is my go-to for sushi and sashimi usually, and they never fail to disappoint. We ordered their chicken karage, which was fried very well and was also very well seasoned. It was still juicy and tender when we got it. Their sushi rolls here are quite good, along with their sashimi, which is beautifully presented and quite fresh.... More

The food is great here. Just slightly bigger than a hole-in-the-wall. Full sushi bar. Homey service that you would expect in a Japanese restaurant. Prices not that bad. I am really surprised there aren't long lines at all hours of the day. Its really that good. Unagi! They give you a lot! Very tasty!

Great staff, great and fresh food, they take cards and they're ok if you share your portion with friend. I definitely love "sushi lunch" option - comes with miso soup, rice and salad - you can try all kinds of sushi they have plus fried salmon and nori. Even better - they offer 20% off on your next visit (except... More

In the heart of Japan town, there are a number of restaurants, but I only want to go here. It's a great little restaurant, highly authentic, very welcoming and always looking after its customers. Why go anywhere else? There's a huge selection but don't miss out on the fatty tuna (it melts) and the spicy mussels. It's also the only... More

Have been here several times; always good. Enjoy sitting at the sushi bar and at tables. Lots of good selections. Fresh food will prepared and presented with Japanese ambiance. Can't go wrong as you can order what you want if you don't see on floating sushi boats.

I have been to this restaurant 3 or 4 times now and it is consistently good. I enjoy the sushi bar itself, watching the food float around is fun, although the chefs will make what you want if you can't see it!

Sushi Maru is my first choice for Japanese Cuisine in Downtown San Jose. I usually get my food to-go because this place is always packed. Their wide range of available seafood and daily specials keep my taste buds wanting more. Im a big tofu fan and order their agedashi tofu every visit. Its difficult to find spicy hotate hand rolls...
