The food is quite good , though I am not fond of sushi....my friends love it here. The teriyaki and other items are good, though there is an extra charge if you do not want the California roll on your teriyaki lunch special.

Another couple and we had dinner here last night. Everyone ordered a combination dinner that included miso soup, sashimi or California roll, salad, a bowl of rice, some tempura vegetables, and a meat entree. Two of us got teriyaki beef, the others had teriyaki salmon. Everything was fresh and good and the portions were generous.

We ate there twice during our stay at Benicia. A bit difficult to find as its entrance does not face the !st street. Nice cozy restaurant and served excellent sushi and shashimi. Very reasonable price, much better deal than the other Japanese restaurant at Benicia

The potstickers appetizer were great, while the sushi main entree was ok, was ok serving size no giant serving of rice like some other places.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Matsuri. The sushi rolls were very good and the sushi was excellent. Compliment with a good saki and provided with friendly service made our dinner.

This is our go-to sushi in Benicia. It is competing with Yo Sushi, Kaigan, and now Kimono, but I think it's the best value for the quality. The sushi is fresh and the other apps are quite good. My daughter loves the agedashi tofu. Nice family-run place that I highly recommend.

Matsuri has all the regular rolls, i.e. California, rainbow. What we love best are different combos and they add garlic chips to some of them. Great little twist! We always sit at the sushi bar, but they do have table seating also.

The food is always good here. The sushi is fresh and the service is prompt. We like the private room, you feel like you are in Japan. This is the only place we go for sushi.
