We picked this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews and were disappointed. The restaurant is cute and the service was good. The crunch roll, one night stand and sautéed scallops were good. We made the mistake of ordering entrees and were disappointed. This is the only time my kids have not eaten the fried rice. The teppan steak was bland. The... More

Great place! The food was fresh and delicious; we paired it with hot sake. The service was friendly and quick, and we were seated at a nice booth. A very happy place, filled with celebrations of all kinds, although the place wasn't too noisy. Very pleased, will go again and recommend to everyone in the area.

Matsu is located in a non attractive shopping center...as soon as you open the door, you find yourself in a beautiful, authentic Japanese restaurant. From Teppanyaki to sushi bar to a main dinning - set restaurant. Food is outstanding, service as well. The "boat dinner" is wonderfully presented and feeds 2 to 4 people. We had sushi as well and...

Matsu has been a favorite of my Japanese American family for over a decade. It has a top-notch staff and consistently good food. When we go as a family we have the Chef's Special Boat. At $9.50 per person (lunch), it's a pretty good value too. Two Matsu Special Boats (dinner) for a party of eight was enough to provide... More

Always great food and service. We can always count on consistency and a good time. It's easy to have a quiet conversation in their booths in the dining room, making it a relaxing evening. !

This is a great restaurant with 2 Teppanyaki grills seating 4 parties of 8 each. There is also the main restaurant selling sushi etc. We sat at on of the Teppanyaki tables and told the guy my wife is a strict vegetarian, so he cooked her food first so fast there was no contamination. This was a great touch. The... More

Very good Sushi but a little pricey, would definitely recommend going for lunch only. We went for dinner and spent way more then I would have liked.

Matsu is bar none my most favorite sushi bar in Orange County. There are fancier and possibly more traditional but none withstand the test of time. The quality of the sushi has always been consistent and nicely presented. You can always count on some edamame and a little cucumber salad as you consider what you will start with. I recommend...

This is a hidden gem. Tucked away in the corner of an unassuming strip mall, you could drive past a hundred times and never notice it. It is a lovely, surprisingly spacious retro Japanese restaurant with a full service bar and lounge. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the service is wonderful. This is a great place for a... More
