Japanese Cuisine at its Best

The restaurant features a Sushi Bar and dining room seating. Space is limited but the atmosphere is good. The food is very delicious and plentiful.

This is a nice, small restaurant in the lovely town of Benicia. The food is good but the wait can be really long (in fact it usually is). The service is usually good. The portions have gotten smaller in the Bento boxes but are still adequate. They have a sister restaurant in Vallejo that is the same food and more... More

Matsuri is the best Japanese restaurant in Benicia! They have all the sushi you would usually order plus some things you would never find in a strip mall Japanese sushi place. Good service and outstanding food. My favorite.

We always enjoy our food here. They have a ton of options and the fish is always fresh. It would be nice if they were a bit friendlier.

Good sushi, friendly service. We were in and out quickly. Place was quite busy. Waitress kept checking on us and encouraged us to try different dishes.

I stopped in here for take out and boy was I surprised. I saw the sign on the street (hidden) and thought what the heck. I ordered various sashimi and nigiri and was very pleased. Better than some of the stuff I get at home in Seattle at some places. They have a nice patio outside, a small sushi bar... More

I went there twice within a month & both times I absolutely loved it! The pink lady roll was so delicious as was their Taro French fry appetizer with aioli sauce! The restaurant is very quaint so definitely more of an intimate place to dine but absolutely worth the trip!! Plus they serve my favorite cupcake Chardonnay:) A must try... More

We went early in the evening on a Saturday. Had a short wait to be seated in the dining room. The small bar probably sat about ten diners and was already full. Service was expedient and Friendly. The food was excellent! Well worth the wait and price. Looking forward to my next visit.

Had originally intended to eat in but the line up was so long we decided to do take out. Was really hared to decide what to have since the selection is wide. Some of the best sushi I have ever had...fresh, yummy. Only problem was that we asked for extra wasabi (which we got) but we should have asked for... More
