Great ambiance with the waitresses wearing traditional Japanese Kimonos. The food is excellent and if dining with 4 or more people, order one of the boats is a must.

The food is consistently good, with fresh sushi and sashimi and other standard Japanese dishes. Service is attentive. There's a large bar area, dining room, and teppan room. Reservations are a must on weekend nights. Good for business lunches. Excellent prices for large portions. Relaxing and friendly. Atmospheric decorations and music.

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.

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.
