Go for the private room

The food is always good here. The sushi is fresh and the service is prompt. We like the private room, you feel like you are in Japan. This is the only place we go for sushi.

Excellent food, large selection. I love the sushi and tempura and everything else I've tried. It's only open for lunch and dinner, but not in between, and it's a little on the small side, so sometimes there's a wait, and sometimes you see people waiting for your table. But it's worth the wait!

We eat here every time we come! It's small crowded the wait is long and worth ALL that! When you're seated you're treated like the royalty you are and given expert attention and advice on what to choose. Me? I'm the dragon roll expert, and theirs is outstanding. Miso soup is great!

Love this little hide away. Dinner with a loved one or dining with a group this is the go to place. Always fresh, delicious, and creative sushi dishes along with a full Japanese menu. Call ahead for easy take out. Will be back soon.

Every time we go back to Benicia we stop at Masuri. It is a family run Sushi restaurant and they are very accommodating. The Service is excellent and the sushi is very good.

Worth the wait considering it's so popular. Some people don't understand that there is a wait for great food.

Matsuri has been in Benicia for as long as I can remember. I've been here since 1990. It is set back off of 2nd Street, so you might miss the sign. It is reasonably priced and offers consistent service and food.

I was happy to find such a great sushi place in small-town Benicia. The place is tiny and there was a line waiting for a table. It was well worth it!
