This is the place to hit if you're in desperate need of sushi whilst in Rabat but you may be disappointed if you compare the place to a classic sushi experience in the US. Most of the fish is OK and decently fresh but they put cream cheese or mayo in everything. You CAN ask them to hold it, and... More

The fresh salmon Sashimi is sensational - I actually start with three varieties - marinated and sushi also. Then delicious chicken miso soup. Different steak or fish main courses. For those who didn't realise - Rabat is on the Atlantic Ocean with an abundance of great fresh fish available. Best Japanese food in Africa.

Okej, here you are in rockin' Rabat. Probably either passing through, or just moved here. Any which way, there comes a time when one does not want to look at another tagine for dinner. Total change of scenery! Matsuri. Yes, great place. What I enjoyed the most (even though I have been coming here for the past 10 years on... More

A little bit far away, from centre to Matsuri by taxi is about 20Dh. The restaurant is located Ina hidden place, the driver cannot find it, but also achieves its quiet and peaceful environment.Sashimi tastes nice there.

While reading the review, I imagined something I did not find. Food is great. If you like japon you will like this restaurant. Waiter and service is poor (not freindly) hence the average rating. If you do not mind about this, then go you will not regret it

Nice location, beautiful setting but when I saw the chef cutting fish with his ring on, I was shocked! Hello bacteria! Oh and the rolls didn't taste great. Tempura was poor. Didn't get why the place was that crowded..

Finding the Matsuri based on the map information on tripadvisor didn't work. The restaurant is an entirely different part of town (Ave Mohammed VI, not V) - by taxi it's about 10 minutes from Rabat Ville train station/Medina area (and the area on where the Tripadvisor maps puts the restaurant). Food was very good. Had sushi fro the conveyor belt,... More
