From the Burpple community

Very worth it especially it comes with free side dishes from their side bar

We wanted to try this place out since it was on Beyond.

My favourite part of the dish was the mushroom which was packed with umami flavour. The egg was very bland, although cooked to a good consistency with slightly runny yolk.

The beef however, tasted nothing like beef I know. In fact it reminded me of minced meat balls. Maybe Maru was going for a different type of beef bowl than one that I am familiar with. My friends were not as dissatisfied as I was but regardless, I did not enjoy the meal.

(Available and cheaper as 1-for-1 on Burpple but only if you don’t feel like the salad at all which is approx $15 per top up) #burpplebeyond #burpplesg


Added foie gras for $5 more, total $25 for this meal. Enjoyed the free flow salad and dessert bar. Isn’t many people on weekends. Didn’t use the 1 for 1 deal cuz I had 3 pax in total, and the deal excludes the free flow salad/dessert.

I think this restaurant changed their menu, have eaten here several times. Prices went up and portion reduced! From garlic fried rice become white Japanese rice. No longer have mushroom for their truffle beef cube don... not worth for the money anymore.

Second visit here, this time to use my Chope voucher for the Kaisen Chirashi.

I felt that the original price of $28 for the Kaisen Chirashi wasn't worth it as the fish was thinly-sliced and lacked that oomph of flavor when I bit into it. It seemed and low quality, particularly the scallops which were chewy and rather oddly colored. While the sushi rice was well-seasoned and warm, there was just too much of it in proportion to the fish.

The Unadon was the promo don for the day at $15. It came piping hot. While it wasn't melt in your mouth good, it was still tender, flaky and the sweet sauce it was glazed with paired well with the shredded egg and sushi rice.

All in all, reasonable food and ambience but definitely not one I'd write in my books as value-for-money if one is not using a promotion.
