“Put down your laptop and try the rotary buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

I hesitated writing this one because didn't want to share my guilty pleasure of Matubas rotary buffet. You won't get a lot of the fancier rolls especially on the lunch one but what you get is all you can eat not priced per plate color and really good tasting sushi. He prepares it in front of you. Staff is very nice. It's a fun date too.

“Decent Lunch Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

Dropped in for lunch, ordered the Sushi Lunch plus edamame and tempura shrimp. Miso soup was good as was all the food. Sushi was well prepared and tasty. Decor is a bit worn and tired. All in all a good lunch was had.

“Wonderful Service and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Sushi is always fresh and delicious. The salad bar at lunch time is a bargain. Service is impeccable. They are always inventing new dishes.
They have been many years n the heart of Bethesda where restaurant competition is intense.
