I have been coming here for the last 25 years. It has been serving authentic Japanese dishes made by Japanese - simple and clean. The sushi is fresh with generous portions. Prices are much cheaper here. You will not find the exotic sauce-filled rolls that you find at the Korean owned Japanese restaurants. Always a pleasure to eat at Matsuyama's.

My family favourite place when we lived in Richmond, B.C. The restaurant offers special late dinner menu at reduced price, every night after 9pm. My best is Spicy Salmon in the form of sashimi, sushi or cone! The Robata items are okay too such as Chicken heart, yakitori, short ribs, teriyaki, etc. The Don is good too and great for... More

We were "passing through" Vancouver after a cruise from Honolulu and stayed at La Quinta Inn, so walked over to the various restaurants near-by and chose Matsuyama. What a good choice. The restaurant was packed yet the service was fast, the food very good, and no complaints and it was a price-performer. If we were ever in those area again,... More

This evening, we had dinner at Matsuyama because a friend had a craving for Japanese food. I felt like Vietnamese and so happens that Matsuyama has Vietnamese too. I was so disappointed with the servers with the exception of 2 and the manager we know. With the exception of those 3 people, the others were grouchy or like this "I... More

Something for everyone here when it comes to Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine. Been going here since high school and now it's my kids' favorite restaurant in Richmond. Nice atmosphere. Great place to have a meal and watch the game. Service is always fast and friendly. 3 generations of my family come here.

if you enjoy sashimi, this is the place to come. My wife ordered the salmon sashimi and i had the sashimi combo. It was a little too much! The sashimi comes in very thick pieces so forget the elegance and go for the taste!

Average Japanese food. Sushi was okay and the bento box choices were fairly good. The chicken karaage didn't have much flavour though.

The food was great and the service was delightful. I went in at 6pm and sat right down with a pot of tea. The waitress was very friendly and very attentive. My food came out quickly and was hot, fresh, and tasty. I had the Gyoza, Chicken Yakitori, and Beef Yakisoba. While it did not send me down memory lane... More
