I have been a neighborhood attendee of Marumi for years. THey changed the menu in Sept. No longer can you have sushi or sashimi for one or 2.The age tofu used to have a light sauce and coating. Now both are too heavy.The original octopus salad was lovely. It had 5 slices of Octopus and a dab of seaweed. Now, for the same price you get afew small strips of Octopus and alot of seaweed. Not good. I will not go back.

I have been eating at Marumi for years. Surprise when suddenly the notice appeared " closed for renovation'" or something in that order. A few day ago I went back when I heard from my neighbor that it had opened again. Change indeed... New wait staff, new sushi chef. New workers behind the counter, who I believe, weren't even Japanese. The outstanding small octopus salad was mediocre suddenly. No more sushi platters for one or two. Mmmmm....What's going on there. Place wasn't busy either, normally at early evening dinnertime there's a line and the place is packed. I'll check again later.

PROS: Fair prices Great food Decent portions Japanese owner / chefs CONS: No delivery (why?!!) Only pick-up OVERALL: Best option (from far) for a sushi in the neighborhood

I love Marumi. I've eaten most of the things on the menu. Marumi's food isn't for everyone. It isn't splashy. It is subtle, and simple. The quality of ingredients are excellent, the technique in cooking is great which makes the food awesome. If that is what you're looking for, then Marumi is for you. Tips: 1. Ask to be seated in the back in the garden. Its quieter and nice. 2. If it gets really full, and you're just with another person, sit in the bar. 3. Try the appetizers which are interesting and fun. The spicy chicken appetizer's chicken breast is incredibly soft.

I tried hard to like this place because some friends recommended it but in the end it was really mediocre. I suppose I've had sushi of this quality in Japan too but this sushi was poorly sliced and had too much wasabi. The service was not good but that could be because it was late and the waitstaff was eager to go home. Anyway, I won't be back.

I've been going to Marumi for eleven years now. The food is authentic and so delicious. Their hamachi kama when they have it is very good. I like their bento boxes. I think the prices are a bit high but then the quality of the food is also high. They are basically passing the cost on to the customer. The food portions are completely appropriate. I suppose this is relative to any one person. I can finish a quarter pounder and med french fry from McDonald's (but not the drink) and will feel stuffed. Maybe that will help? In any case, I don't expect my sashimi to be over a 1/4 inch thick. They don't serve it that way in Japan so why would I expect that here? Anyway, I highly recommend this place and no, I don't work at the restaurant.

No matter where I've lived in the City -- and I've been all over -- I *always* come back to Marumi. So does my wife; totally independently, she's come to the same conclusion about Marumi. I'd eat here every night if I could.
