As we are English speakers, it's often hard to communicate vegan food requirements to non-native English speakers (it's hard to even get it across to native English speakers sometimes!), but once we'd breeched the communication barrier, the Masturi staff offered us a wide selection of appetisers to create a wonderful vegan meal. Food was delicious, cheap, and came out very... More

I have eaten at Matsuri over the past few years, and go there whenever I visit Cairns. I'm surprised at the recent negative reviews, so at my last visit, last week, I was very pleased to find that nothing has changed. The food is good, authentic Japanese. The gyoza, sushi and seaweed salad were all good, and their agedashi tofu... More

My wife and I were a bit unsure at first about going to Matsuri or not since some of the reviews from Tripadvisor here were quite concerning in regards to hygiene. Anyway, we at the end went to Matsuri and did not disappoint! It is definitely not high class fine japanese restaurant dining, more like a cafe style as you... More

One of the tastiest Gyoza (dumplings) I have ever had! (Although I haven't visited Japan yet!) The Katsu curry was amazing too, such a large portion! I couldn't finish it. Service was great, food came out really quick. Like within 5-10 minutes! Would definitely eat here again!!!!

We dinned here for the first time on a whim. We ordered a Bento box and Grilled chicken with ponzu. Meals were far to small for price. We ended buying bar snacks at the pub up the road as we were still hungry.

I visit Matsuri often and I have never been disappointed. Great food at great prices and the waiting time is not too long. The chicken karraage is a must try!

We visit this restaurant every chance we get. The food is exceptionally good value (large servings at a less- than-equivalent-restaurant- price). The presentation is beautiful, the sashimi is fresh, the karate is crunchy and the service is outstanding. We have gone back a number of times and are slowly working our way through the menu. For a taste of everything... More

A friend and I visited Matsuri on a recommendation and had an excellent meal! It's a small hole in the wall but tastefully decorated with friendly staff and quick service. The edamame was so-so and miso soup standard but everything else was wonderful, from kimchi ramen and tofu udon noodle dishes to seaweed salad and a lovely plate of sashimi.... More
