“Love this hidden secret”
Reviewed 8 March 2014 via mobile

This has become my new weekly stop for lunch and now sometimes, dinner. Food is beautiful and fresh and very authentic. Highly recommend.

“little japan in southport”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

I've dined here fairly regularly here since discovering it tucked away in a little side street in Southport a couple of years ago.

The staff are always lovely and very attentive even during a busy lunch. I've never had to wait long to be served or get my meal.

I almost always order the "chefs bento box" it is almost impossible to pass up as eveything is amazing on the menu.

“Fresh Sushi”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

This is the best place on the Gold Coast for fresh sushi. Just 50 meters from the light rail station in the Gold Coast's Chinatown. Unlike many restaurants on the Gold Coast Maruya has a customer base with a large percentage of repeat patrons. tip 1 Do as the locals do there is usually a good reason.

“Extensive menu and fresh food”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Lunch is lovely, have been a few times. It's priced well with lots of options and the food is fresh and plentiful. Doesn't take long from ordering to receiving your meal so if you're in a hurry is a good option too. Loads of seating (all indoors) and clean amenities.
