Matuba is the best sushi place in town. Their sushi is great, I've been going to Matuba for years and have never had a bad experience. Go to Matuba once and Robert (the sushi chef and owner) will remember you. He is very friendly, makes great sushi, and is a very hard working local business owner (I have not been... More

The meal was good and competitively priced. The restaurant has a little age. The service was great. I was the only customer in the restaurant.

The wife and I love sushi but hate what some local places are charging for it, so we tried Matuba on learning from it on T.A. . We loved the sushi quality and prices, the miso soup broth was strong and good, edemamme was a little over cooked. Not as fancy as other spots in town, but true sushi-files won't... More

We picked the matuba for its excellent Sushi , A party of 7 no problem service was excellent well versed and helpful with a sense of humor. The prices were very reasonable, we brought a b-day cake no problem cut and distributed for us. I enjoy quiet as well so as to talk while enjoying your meal and found this

I've been to Matuba many times, and I consistently find it to be the best sushi in town. Not all of the rolls are amazing, and some of the other non-sushi food is only average, but the makimono rolls, though expensive, are some of the best sushi I've ever had. The flavors are so rich and delicious, I find myself... More

Have been going to Matuba's for 12 years. Robert, the owner, is the sushi chef and by far makes the best sushi in the area. We have tried all the others and they do not compare in taste, quality or value to Matuba's. As others have noted the wait can be lengthy at times but it is well worth it.

Best sushi around. Try the Maggie/Nora roll! Robert and his staff are lots of fun and take good care of you. It is not the spot when you are in a hurry, but great when you want to catch up with good friends and have great food.
