Real Japanese restaurant

I have traveled several times to Japan for business and for leisure. At MATSU I always feel tight at home. The atmosphere (Japanese music and servers dressed in kimono's) is very much Japanese.The food quality and presentation are very good. I always love to visit them again.

Great hidden restaurant, located in a mini mall, off of Beach Blvd serving Japanese, Sushi, Chinese. Left is the sit down Chinese style rstaurant - if 4 of you get the Boat - a mix of steaming hot Chinese style dishes served on an actual wooden boat. But most fun is the Tapanake style tables where hands on cooks will... More

Matsu has been in HB for over 30 years. It's a huge place, so if you're looking for teppan tables or the huge chef boats you should go here. The quality of fish is ok.

Very good food cooked to your order on the teppan grill. The cook put on quite a show for the grandkids. The cucumber salad was very tasty and I don't particularly like cucumbers. I order the vegetable soup and it was excellent. Fried rice was good. I had the New York steak and shrimp. The shrimp were very good. The... More

Had our anniversary dinner the other night at Matsu, this is the sight of our very first date and most have worked out. I have been going here for 20 years and have never been disappointed.

Our family chooses Matsu for special occasions. But don't wait! If you have not eaten there try it tonight? Great food, service and drinks! Parking can be troublesome at evening time.

We go to Matsu every few months. Sometimes we have Teppan, sometimes we have sushi, and sometimes we sit in the dining room. Regardless, food and service is always awesome.

Matsu is our family's favorite. We have been coming here for over 20 years. The food is fantastic. Prices OK. Great service. We always celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions here. Parking can be hard to fine. Our secret. Park in the Kaiser lot next door. They close at 5:00. Try one of their "boat" specials for a wide selection... More

I've been going to Matsu for years and the quality is exceptional! The food, the atmosphere, the wait staff, all excellent. Consistency is key, I've never had a bad meal or a problem with an order. The nice Asian waitress in the bar is awesome, we like to call her "The nice lady with the alcohol." I highly recommend this... More
