“Best Authentic Sushi in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

I would highly recommend Matsuri!

It's unpretentious and offers excellent authentic sushi by Japanese Chef Arato!

Totally worth a visit! Amazing food and service at a reasonable price.

I just wish we lived a little closer - we would eat there on a weekly basis but ..... we will be back as often as we possibly can.

“Best all round authentic sushi in Cape Toen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

There are more expensive, and fancy, hip places. But if you want excellent authentic sushi by Japanese chef I recommend Izkaya Matsuri! The quality of the sushi is excellent with a unique variety. Definitely recommend all to try!!
