The food was a little on the expensive side for their ala carte menu. They charged $7.50 for one shrimp tempura, a portion of fried rice, and five pieces of meat jun.
Also, they have two cashier stands, but don't have a sign that tells you which cashier to go to purchase my lunch. I had to walk back and forth across the restaurant and walk outside the restaurant to get to the proper cashier stand.
Also, they refused to let me pay with my MasterCard unless my bill came out to $10.00 or more. I believe this goes against MasterCard policy. Merchants violate their contract if they require a minimum payment.
Worth a visit!. Used to go to Maru-Hi a lot when it first opened. Then the original owners sold and it was not so good. Well a few years later and a major renovation later, we thought we'd try again. WOW! Dinner was really good. DHH had the Maru-Hi Special which had kalbi, sashimi, tempura (2 shrimp), iceberg salad, rice, miso soup, a dollop of tsukemono, mac salad, and some soy beans for $15.95! I had Maru-Hi Bento which lets you choose 3 entrees. I had mochiko chicken, bbq beef and tempura (1 tempura), w/ iceberg salad, rice, miso soup, a dollop of takuan, tsukemono, mac salad, and some soy beans for $16.95. I was able to take home my rice and entire serving of mochiko chicken for lunch the next day. The atmosphere was a mix of traditional and modern (dark wood furniture). Very nice and the service was pretty good considering there were only 2 waitresses. Cozy restaurant, good food, good/friendly service, highly recommended.
