Best Japanese in the area

I live in Manhattan during the week where I have a lot of choices for great sushi, but I spend my weekends in Rowayton and the choices are slim. I've tried all the Japanese restaurants in the area and Matsuri definitely has the highest quality fish and best food. I'm a huge fan of otoro (fatty... read 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 .

This was my second visit. The first was a few years ago, at which time I was impressed. This time the food was also excellent. I am a sashimi fan and their's is fresh and firm. The atmosphere is relaxed, clean and neat. Service was good but maybe a bit too fussy. Highly recommend. I'll be back!!!

The quality of their fish was impeccable. Went for lunch and they were running a toro special buy 2 get 1 free. We also ordered the Tiger roll and a Valentine roll and both were tasty, beautifully assembled and the freshest fish i've had in a long time. Lunch is a bargain but we ordered off the dinner menu so... More

I placed an order through seamless with an estimated delivery time of 45-60 minutes. After 90 minutes I called the restaurant to check on the food and was told not to worry that it was on the way. 20 minutes later I call again to be told its on its way and that they will check. 10 minutes later they...

Excellent sushi and good variety of hot food. A cut above all other Asian restaurants in the area. Unfailingly attentive. Lunch is a steal and a good way to try it out for not much money.

reasonable prices for exceptional fish... The service is wonderful .....friendly bartender on Wednesday nights. the hot Saki is delicious!! can't wait to bring my next date to Matsuri....My advice is to get there early because they try to close the kitchen by 10pm.
