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.

We found ourselves in Darien at dinner time on Saturday night and decided last minute we wanted Sushi. We chose Matsuri due to the 4 start TripAdvisor ranking. My wife and I loved the Sashmi and the Rolls. It was absolutely fresh and delicious. Pretty decent wine was only $8/glass. Very price good by Fairfield County standards. Dinners we on... More

Well cut, fresh fish. I have eaten here 15 times and never been sick (low standard after 15 years of NYC sushi). Ask for the specials. And be sure to grab a handful of mints from that bowl near the door -- chocolate / mint, my daughter's favorite!

Restaurant looks appealing and inviting on the outside; service, value and taste was forgettable. You don't get what you pay for here. Service - Average to below average for 'Japanese' sushi house Value - Expected better selection for the price. Shorted a piece of sushi fm one of my rolls. Selection (Sushi) - Average/basic; expected more variety for a Japanese... More
