Maru Sushi and Grill is located in Sanford, off of SR46 in the plaza beside the Town Center Mall with the Joann Etc and Tuesday Morning. I grabbed sushi to go for a friend and I, I ordered the meals via phone at the start of the lunch rush. The ordering process was quick and our meals were accurate upon pick up.
The restaurant had a good crowd enjoying lunch on the Wednesday I was in the area. Maru Sushi’s full lunch menu listing all of the lunch specials is online here.
I ordered the following two lunch specials to go:
Lunch special: PICK 2 ROLLS, with soup and salad for $9. I received the salad and ordered the Miso soup. The Spicy Tuna rolls had fresh tuna, cucumber, spicy mayo and sprinkled with crunch flakes. The Tempura Shrimp Roll had tempura fried shrimp, avocado, spicy mayo with crunch flakes.
Lunch Special: SPECIALTY/ SIGNATURE ROLL with soup and salad, the price varies based on roll- I ordered the DAYTONA , the combo was priced at $10, I received the salad and ordered Onion soup for my friend. The Daytona roll has spicy tuna, avocado, cucumber, veggie mix topped with crab salad, sesame, wasabi aioli, eel sauce and is topped with wasabi tobiko.
The sushi was very good, nice sauce flavors and all of the rolls were fresh and well made. The Spicy Tuna was not very spicy, so request it hotter if you prefer your “spicy” to pack some heat. The lunch specials were very filling and at a price that makes enjoying sushi for lunch during the work week very possible. I will top in here again when in the area to enjoy a sit down meal and get the full experience. In checking out their various signage and reminders posted around the restaurant, they are pretty active with social media. Find them on Facebook and Twitter, where they announce the daily specials and Happy Hour deals. Mari Sushi is open 7 days a week for Dinner, the menu is online here.

I enjoy writing about and participating in the food, wine and culinary scene in Central FL in my off hours. I started Orlando Uncorked, a local non profit wine education group, to promote the approachability of wine and donated our event proceeds to local area charities. The popular wine tasting events grew into structured wine classes and finally, food and wine writing for Orlando Home & Leisure Magazine and The Seminole Chronicle. Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to join in on my fun, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Untappd, Drync & Vivino @WineChix . Cheers!
