Sushi is outstanding..ask for the volcano, spicey crunchy crab or the honeymoon...they make their own tempura batter...very light and just perfect. Their bento boxes are also outstanding.

Stopped in here as I was walking near my hotel looking for a place to eat dinner. A very nice surprise for being in a little strip mall. Great sushi/maki, and the service was excellent. The staff seemed to know many of the people who came in, so I'm guessing they have quite a local following.

This is an unpretentious, little, quiet sushi restaurant. Good prices for absolutely great very fresh sushi. There is a long list of roll and sushi options plus a normal menu too. I eat at Matsu once a week and the service is quick and efficient every time.

This was the first time I visited this place based on reviews from Trip Advisor. I must say, the service and food were very good. I thought the sushi was very fresh and quite tasty though they could have been a little larger. I particularly enjoyed the green mussels. If I'm in this area again, I will visit this place... More

We have been eating at Matsu Sushi for several years. Recently they had a new fresh fish dish, Alaskan Cod with soyaki (spelling?) sauce and stir fried vegetables. This dish was wonderful! Served hot right away. I'm sure this was a special, but they have done it with other fish. My wife usually get the seafood salad or sushi. The... More

A little pricey and I was overcharged without receiving the extras that were supposed to come with my meal, but the sushi was wonderful. Very fresh and unique combinations. The sushi chef was willing to make things other than what is listed on the menu. Cute atmosphere. Definitely recommend!
