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.

The best service over any Japanese/sushi restaurant. The sushi is fresh and the price is right, not extremely expensive. Great for family.

My family has been going to Matsu for over 25 years and during that time it has changed very little. That, my friend, is a good thing! There was a time when it was really the only good restaurant in the entire city. Today there are a number of goods choices but Matsu remains as one of the best. It... More

I have visited this restaurant several times as it is my boyfriends favorite. A visit to other Teppan's over the years has allowed me to recite all the corny jokes before they happen but most times I am up for it. We could look over and see the excitement from other cooks but ours has been cooking and performing for... More

My wife and I have gone to Matsus for many years and love it. We are always comparing other Sushi restaurants with Matsus. You can't beat Amy's service in the bar and the tepan is great. Our favorite roll is the crunch roll, highly recommend.

I happen to be in the area, and read the great reviews. I consider myself a sushi connoisseur. DO NOT GO HERE FOR THE SUSHI!!!! Appeared to be a mix of sushi restaurant meets Teppanyaki meets Chinese food!? Majority of customers were overweight men (serve gigantic portions) with their skinny high heeled honeys

Fun to visit here every so often. Scorpion bowl drink is awesome, never disappoints. It would be good to see them change their presentation occasionally.
