This place's price is a little high, but with good quality. We used to do the BBQ at the table, but found out the meat taste much better if we ask the kitchen to cook. The beef rib, port neck meat are two of the...More

What a local gem! If you like authentic Korean food, this mom & pop place has it and it's delicious! All the favorite Korean items including Korean BBQ, plus sushi! Traditional Korean meal service is wonderful. Friendly and reasonable. I highly recommend!

We came here the first time because the restaurant next door was closed, and we wound up enjoying the food, the people and the atmosphere. We've been coming pretty much since they opened. It's a small, family run restaurant. The food is delicious (We no...More

You can tell from the great masks and paintings on the walls of this restaurant that the owners bring an authentic and careful craft to preparing their food. Half the restaurant consists of a raised platform where traditional dining (no shoes please) attracts many Koreans....More

Maru is a refreshing alternative to over-hyped upscale interpretations of good traditional Korean food. I've been enjoying Korean dining for over 30 years and the NYC scene has gotten too pricey and strayed from the quality, taste, presentation, value and atmosphere that drew me to...More

Pretty casual. Owner/chef greets me to assign my table. A Hispanic helper serve drinks and clean up table. Surprise to see sushi offers with Korean traditional menu! Sashimi not bad. Korean soontofu is not as good as I'm used to in bigger city, could have...More

This is a small family oriented restaurant. Half the tables are BBQ, the rest are not. We usually sit at the non-BBQ tables and enjoy the Dolsot Bibimbap, Panjeon, fried Mandu, and Soondubu. We have gotten into the habit of going all the way to...More
