We called and there was no answer. Then we stopped by and the place was completely emptied out. It's a shame because they had excellent sushi and we really enjoyed it there.

This is my favorite place for sushi in the bradenton Sarasota area by far and that is saying a lot because there are many, many, places to choose from. That is not to say all the others are bad it's just that tis place is superior! The cuts of fish you get when ordering sashimi is thicker and fresher than... More

This place is in the San Marco Plaza in Lakewood Ranch. It has about a dozen tables plus the sushi bar. I had to take off a point for the TVs - I don't know why endless infomercials on one and sports on the other (both muted) needed to be part of the ambiance. We had sushi and sashimi, both... More

This place is a hidden jewel. Though this small sushi restaurant is tucked away in a hard-to-find corner of Lakewood Ranch sprawl, make all efforts to find it. There's a sushi restaurant on every other street in most of South Florida, but none approaches this in quality. Fresh fish is easy to find in Florida, but sushi quality varies greatly.... More

We went last night (2/29/2012) and the sushi was good, but they are understaffed. There was one person making sushi and our group of 6 ordered 7 rolls plus an appetizer. Our dining experience lasted 2 hours. You could tell the main waitress was running around as fast as she could, but it was impossible for her to keep up.... More

Matsuri Sushi is a small restaurant tucked away in Lakewood Ranch's upscale Spanish-style San Marco shopping plaza. There is an 8-seat sushi bar, 4 or 5 booths, and 16 or so tables. The interior is pleasantly illuminated (no bright lights) and there are 2 flat screen TV's which were (thankfully) silent except for the captioned scroll. Beer and wine are... More

This is my favorite restaurant in LWR. Terrific, fresh sushi! I'd eat here every day if I could. My favorite rolls are: Fantasy, Geisha, Fire Dragon, and Sake. The chicken soup is also terrific (but spicy). Great kids menu with several different types of fried rice and tempura chicken. My daughter also loves the Tampa roll (fried grouper).

You won't find all-you-can-eat sushi here, but if you are looking for quality in a lovely setting, this is the place. The selections available are creative and numerous.
