Great sushi; not much atmosphere though

i've been to Matsuri for lunch and dinner and the sushi is excellent quality. The staff however is not very enthusiastic at first; kind of ambivalent but as the meal went on they got nicer. THe physical plant is a little worn and not the cleanest; the table was wiped down but the floor was dirty... read more

Had many lunches here. The food is good, far better than what you would expect from a Japanese restaurant outside a big city. It's one of our favorite lunch spots. Pricing is very reasonable.

Another Darien restaurant that has gone down hill since opening. Not sure if it changed hands and kept the same name but the quality of the food and service we had grown accustomed to is gone. After the worst service, at the end we did not say a word paid the bill and left with a pledge of never returning... More

If I lived and worked nearby I would probably frequent this place on a weekly basis. The food is delicious, the service is on point and the price for lunch specials is great. We had a working lunch here for about 12 bucks each for the lunch special which was more than enough to eat. I recommend the rock shrimp... More

My boyfriend and I had purchased a groupon to go here. We were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service. This was the best sushi we have had in a long time. Highly recommend it!! You will not be disappointed.

Normally very good, but had a really bad experience the last time I was there. Wait staff is very annoying as when your u are eating the pace back and forth and when people are having a conversation, it is very rude to inturrupt a guest.

We spent three weeks touring the Northeast and my family loves Japanese food so we ate Japanese quite a few times during the trip. The dinner we had at Matsuri was the best we had by far (much better than the Zuma in New York). The fish and oysters were very fresh and are flown in from Japan. The Sashimi... More

Matsuri has the absolute best sushi rolls around. The menu creatively uses jalapeños and mango among other ingredients to elevate the flavor of fish to a new level! Virtually every week we order our all time favorite rolls: the White Tuna Amazon, Snow White roll, wild salmon roll, matsuri roll and tiger roll, which is best eaten at the restaurant... More

When Matsuri opened about 7 (?) years ago, it was truly top notch. Now it is run of the mill and overpriced. The lunch special is a good value and I particularly like the tempura shrimp with melon balls .
