We were expecting more of a variety but at least this was fresh.
Salmon and Avocado Inside Out Hand Roll
(chicken and vegetables cooked in Japanese sauce with mayo)
(Japanese savoury pancake with seafood and vegetables)
Dry with minimal seafood.
(sliced beef, onion, spring onion and thick udon in soup)
The soup was a little bit too sweet for my liking.
Katsu Curry Udon
(fried crumbed chicken, spring onion and thick udon in curry soup)
A hearty noodle dish.
Green Tea Latte
This was unfortunately too sweet and needed a stronger matcha flavour.
Great value for money (especially for a place in South Yarra), friendly attentive service, and tasty Japanese fare. Maru Shih is a place worth visiting if you are in the area.

Beef bulgogi don
Okonomiyaki – Japanese pancake with vegetables and squid. A bit too much sauce was added which made the pancake very soft = Not Bad
Tuna tataki – lightly seared tuna with home-made yuzu dressing = Not Bad
Agedashi tofu – deep fried bean curd and dried bonito flakes in dashi soup = Not Bad
Beef bulgogi don – beef bulgogi with rice and vegetables = Not Bad
Rainbow roll – lobster meat, avocado and cucumber inside the rolls. Prawn, avocado, salmon and tuna on top of the rolls. As soon as I saw the word ‘lobster’ I knew that I had to try this. Unfortunately this dish did not taste very fresh and the lobster meat was questionable = Not Bad
Sushi (small) – salmon, tuna, prawn and sweet fried tofu = Not Bad
Friendly service, pleasant atmosphere, lacklustre food.
