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

My husband and I have tried many sushi places over the years all over and we keep going back to place. The fish is the freshest, the place is family owned...they have a Toppan bar, Sushi bar, Restaurant and a bar all in one. We have been going there for nearly 20 years and the food is always consistently SO... More

Been going here for years. Outstanding. Five star service and food. Our habit is to order the matsu combination boat ($23 per person) and a scorpion ($12 tropical liquor drink for two). Tons of leftovers. But the service is exceptional every time. Servers wear kimonos. Japanese decor. Very friendly. Professional. Take out of town visitors everytime. Go once and you... More

WOW! Good things do come undiscovered. Matsu is an undiscovered gem in a sea of 'sushi joints'. Friendly, knowledgeable, and enticing the Matsu staff leads patrons through the usual maze of the menu. OK, after that they up the ante by providing superb cuisine. They are definitely a 5 STAR establishment. If you want sushi go no farther!

My Ladies Club meets once a month at a different restaurant for lunch. Matsu was just perfect. They gave each of us individual checks, which helps with large groups. We ordered the Boat for five and it was more food than ten could have eaten. Delicious menu.
