Sure…you can find sushi around town at various restaurants, but we have long had a “sushi restaurant” in the city…and we could not be more excited!

Robert Song has been perfecting his sushi craft for 18 years, and now, with the opening of his sixth restaurant, he brings his dedicated craft to the city of Detroit.

He opened the first Maru Sushi in Okemos in 2008 and started learning what it meant to be a small business owner. He built his network at Michigan State University during college, stayed connected throughout the years, and is now excited to come to Detroit.

“It’s been a process that I’ve been taking and obviously this location in Detroit is a culmination of years of hard work,” Song said.

Maru Sushi also has locations in Midland, Grand Rapids, East Lansing and Kalamazoo.

In Detroit, they are located inside the Federal Reserve Building, and features a menu very similar to the other restaurants, but with a few Detroit-special dishes. 

Song’s 18 years of experience allows for a robust menu, which includes the Cosmo Specialty Roll, made with tempura shrimp, avocado, spicy mayo, scallions, masago, honey wasabi aioli, spicy mayo and your choice of salmon, tuna or both. Also on the menu is the Madagascar Specialty Roll, with tempura shrimp, avocado, kampyo, garlic eel sauce, rooster sauce, spicy tuna, masago and scallions. The menu also features vegetarian options, with radish sprouts, cucumber, avocado, asparagus, pico de gallo, peppers and more.

Those looking for something outside of sushi can also try a Hibachi Grill, served with grilled veggies, miso soup, steamed or fried rice and a choice of chicken, ribeye, tiger shrimp or veggies.

Maru Sushi is located in the former Federal Reserve Building at 160 W. Fort St. The dining room seats 145 and the outside patio seats 65.
