Although the food is not consistently excellent, some of the dishes are and none of it will be less than good. The atmosphere is hard to beat6: there will be two CalTech PhD students on your left, a Japanese family on your right, and two Korean undergrads from Pasadena City College behind you......... The fish at any rate whether in... More

I visited this place twice and sampled their nigiri sushi offer quite extensively. This is really top quality. Service is friendly and efficient. The only downside is the price as I have had equally good sushis at a cheaper price in the area, especially considering that the setting is not particularly fancy.

My girlfriend and I decided that we wanted to have sushi for dinner. I recalled that I had been to a place in Pasadena near Caltech several years ago and I really liked it. Hence, we wound up at Matsuri on Green St. in Pasadena. We sat at the sushi bar and really enjoyed everything from the sushi to the... More

Matsuri is the best. It is not a large restaurant, but that is not what you want with sushi. This is a famiy owned and family run restaurant that provides the freshest sushi and Japanese food. Sitting at the sushi bar is ideal, but the table service is excellent.

Went for lunch with colleagues during the week. The server didn't understand English very well, so it was difficult to communicate. Good variety of sushi and rolls. Good flavors as well. The service was very slow. It's worth trying, perhaps they wer short a server?

We've been to Pasadena many times, and our most recent visit may likely be our last for some time, so we wanted to make sure we visited Matsuri once more, as it is one of our favorites. On this visit we took along another couple from back home who just happened to be in the area at the same time.... More

Great sushi at great prices. Centrally located in Pasedena. The premisis has a nice decor and appears to be well kept. In addition to what you're going to eat, you gotta add the SPICY YELLOWTAIL SASHIMI (W/PONZU). The service is outstanding, and everybody that works there have a special greeting both when you come in the door, and when you... More

There is a reason why this place always has a line of people waiting to sit down. Its the amazing fresh seafood that they offer. My wife loves the salmon sashimi with lemon and sea salt, she downs at least 3 orders. I love the red snapper. If you want a fine dining sushi restaurant with a scene, do not... More
