This place is near our home and has been recommended to us by a few of our friends/family. So, today after Mass we headed just down the block for a bite of lunch. First off, you have to duck/dodge some sort of flag or banner hanging in the doorway. I mean literally hanging half way down the entrance. Okay...trying to... More

The food and atmosphere are great here. I lived in Japan for a few years and although the food is not on par with what I've had in Japan, it is very close.

This is the best place to get sushi in the greater Cincinnati area. Best fish and best price. Make sure you try the Matsuya 2 roll and the amigo role. Site at the bar and talk to Panasonic. He is a pretty interesting guy.

Enjoyed a nice sushi dinner. Young waiter was very attentive and helpful with answers to our questions. Keep in mind that you can unfortunately still smoke in Kentucky restaurants

This is a medium well kept Northern KY secret. They have a good handle on sushi, and everything is fresh and well prepared. The wait staff is very helpful and willing to educate you, or give suggestions in regards to the sushi. The seaweed salad is good, along with the miso soup. Next door to them is a Japanese grocery...

The traditional seating is lots of fun for a large party of 6 or more. The food is excellent and the staff is very helpful, they taught us everything we know about Japanese dinning. I have a few food allergies and they look out for me every time I come in to dine. They have become part of our family,... More

From our first interaction with our waiter, he made us feel as if we were a burden on him. Impersonal is an extreme understatement. He ignored us as we walked in, and when I asked for a table for five, he said we could sit at the chabudai and then walked away. We had never been there before, so we... More

Our work group of five arrived about 7:30 on a Monday night. finding Matsuya uncrowded. Long story short, the food was good, but the service made us wish we had never set foot in the place. I enjoyed the vegetable tempura, edamame, and California roll. I'm vegetarian, so not a good reviewer of sushi restaurants :-) My co-workers, however, do... More
