My 10 year old daughter & I created LadyBug Restaurant Reviews to write about the restaurants we eat at from a parent/child perspective. Our ratings are for food, service, presentation, friendly waitstaff and overall experience. We rate on a 1 - 5 ladybug scale, with 5 ladybugs being the highest score. We hope you enjoy and please feel free to comment and give suggestions!

Maru Ichi!

Sophia says: Tonight we went to Maru Ichi! It is a noodle house. When we got there, we waited a few minutes before a waitress came to show us our table. We had to wait awhile for our waitress to come back so we could order our food. We ordered the kids meal, and that was noodles, and california rolls.  The noodles were in a soup and had a weird egg inside. The noodles were good. We went here last year and they had ice cream but this time when we asked for ice cream our waitress said they don't have it anymore. Our service was okay.  I would come back but I would wait a long time.

Josh says: Tonight I went to a restaurant called Maru Ichi. It had noodles. The service was kind of slow. I waited for a long time for my food that I ordered. I had noodles and sushi. And they gave me a cute monkey bowl. I did not like the egg. The egg was in my soup. I tried it and I did not like it. And the rest of my food was good. I wanted ice cream but they didn't have any. I was sad. I would come back soon.  

Jodie says: We went to Maru Ichi once 2 years ago and the kids really liked it and have been asking to go back. There were a few people there and everyone else seemed really happy with their food.  The service was very slow and they no longer serve ice cream.  But they are very reasonably priced which is good because they are also "cash only".

  1. "I would go back...but only if they MADE me..." am I right? :)

  2. Sophia says: I would actually not go back because I didn't like it that much. Thanks for asking!
