Maru Shih, the superb take away shop

When you get tired shopping in the trendy South Yarra, there is an easy and beautiful take away shop named Maru Shih waiting for you.

Newly opened in November 2011,  Maru Shih  has already gained popularity among commuters and female customers who shop around South Yarra. Even though most of the customers come in for take-aways,  Maru Shih  is also available for eat-ins.

Their fresh hand rolls and soba salads are ideal healthy but quick lunch choices.

For those who want to have a more “proper” meal, our editors have several recommendations.

This is the most popular Yakiniku Lunch Set. $13.50.

Top: Yaki Tori (2 sticks) $6. Left: Pan Fried Dumplings (5 pieces) $6. Front: Hamburger Curry Rice $10.80 (Look at the size of the serving!!).

Chicken Katsu, $6.00. It’s really crispy~!!


The owner of the shop also pay a lot of attention on the nutrition of their food, for their slogan is “We offer food that good to our customers’ health”.

For their Cafe menu, they use the “a2” milk, which is completely natural and additive free. And for coffee and black tea, they only use organic products.


And the matcha powder they use in their popular drink Green Tea Latte is from MoriHan, one of the most famous matcha company located in Uji, Kyoto.


Ms. Miho, the shop manager spent 7 years in Japan learning catering. After she moved to Australia, she attened the Iron Chef , which was a huge success and gave her the chance to meet Kin san (Arakane Chef), who are a professional in running restaurants and consulting.

“I want to offer my customers a space where they can enjoy the beauty of Japanese tableware and experience original Japanese flavor,” says Ms. Miho.


The Japanese style accessories, the color and design of the interior are all extentions of the manager’s attention to details.

This is a place where you can relax and enjoy yourself.


There is even a cute little private room on the 2nd Floor.

This space could be used as private function. Business lunch or get-togethers are also ideal.

Here at  Maru Shih  you can find original Japanese flavor. The new menu is under development. Make sure you visit it when you need a bit of great food.
