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

My wife and I ordered both the Sashimi and Sushi dinner. We were very impressed with the quality of the fish. Not only the portions are generous, the slices of fish were good thickness, and good size. Most important, the quality of the fish is very good. We were expecting "american style" Japanese food, but, as it turns out, the... More

It seems like every city has "THE SPOT" to eat Japanese food and this is definately the spot to enjoy typical true Japanese food in Huntington Beach. Right off the bat menus are in Japanese and English as well but not all waiters speak English so be prepared to use a lot of pointing and in some cases being helped... More

This my favorite restaurant. The food is excellent. I had the sea bass which was cooked perfectly to where you can taste the sweetness of the fish and it is very tender. My boyfriend had the bone-in rib-bye...that is the best steak in OC. Jamie, our server, was great.

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.
