I have been going to this restaurant for about 25 years. Their food and service is excellent. We usually have a group of 4 people and we order "the boat". It has everything on it you can possibly imagine, even plenty left over to take home with you. And it is very reasonable.... just $9.00 a person.

We moved to Huntington Beach only to find that we were across the street from Matsu, so we tried it out and needless to say, we are regulars who enjoy the extremely friendly atmosphere and the great food. The teppan grill meals are so much better than Benihana, and the amounts of food you get are definitely better as well.... More

We stop in for happy hour at least once a month, good prices on the sushi and appetizers. Atmosphere is somewhat dark but your eye will adjust in no time. Service is good, seems to always be packed for people waiting for a table or booth.

We often visit the Matsu. We don't go for the traditional Japanese food but for the dinner and show at the Teppan tables. The Chefs are well practiced and, as my grandchildren say, "they cook with fire." The beef is tender and properly cooked; the seafood is always fresh; special orders (low salt or super rare) are accommodated; and they... More

We have lived in the area for almost 50 years and have only been to Matsu one other time.....when we were in High School ! This time it was my birthday and my adult daughter suggested Matsu for our party of 6 adults. Great service by our Geshia Girl in her outfit. We ordered The Boat for 2 people at... More

This is the most authentic sushi bar I know of. Try the tuna boat 911. Ask Nobu to make something for you. Scallop hand roll in soy paper cone perhaps. It speaks loudly for the quality that it has been open so long. It is expensive but worth it

There are an increasing number of sushi options in the area but if you're in doubt about where to get fresh sushi you can always count on Matsu. This is a local favorite for family dinners out for sushi, two pan and other Japanese fare. Overall the menu is predictable but the sushi is always my favorite. Given how busy... More
