Interesting menu to celebrate a Birthday. Not happy how they serve the food. All food does not arrive at the same time. Some of the people already finished their meal while some of them were still waiting for their food.

I really love Matsuya. Once you step into the restaurant, you really feel like you are in Japan. The food is amazing and the waiting staff is friendly. I especially love the warm towel they provide before your meal to clean your hands.

Matsuya is one of a very few places that offers authentic japanese food around. One of our favourites is the buckweed soup pot with tempura. Definite an experience not to miss if you enjoy authentic japanese food

Apart from sushi, Matsuya serves authentic Japanese cuisine raging from tempura to ramen to curry to green tea ice cream. Dishes are prepared typical Japanese style and it has not been adapted for the South African palette. The restaurant is good for quiet dinners. Meals...More

Simply the best Sushi restaurant in Pretoria. Portions are generous and well presented. The price might be a little higher than most other Sushi restaurants but it is well worth it.
