Named after the famous baseball player, Matsui is the real deal! Amazing tempura dishes and specials! Try the Matsui Go Go Bowl (named after his jersey number 55) it's a bowl full of tempura fried shrimp, rice and vegetables.

Please see my previous review for further information. This visit, I had Katsu-don, egg over pork over rice and onions. My companion had a cold noodle-tempura set. Both of us loved our meal, prepared and served in traditional Japanese manner. The servers were pleasant and efficient. The restaurant was clean. Plenty of free parking can be found in the shopping... More

Don't miss the Go go Matsui tempura shrimp bowl. The shrimp were huge and there is more than enough for a big appetite. We had to share ours like an appetizer and ooh boy, was it tender and cooked just right. We had a group of nine and made a reservation for 5pm on a Sunday so it was quick... More

It is pleasant to discover a Japanese restaurant close at hand that provides most of the things that one comes to expect of such places in Japan. The menu is extensive, the prices fair, the service is very good, the setting is tasteful and reasonably quiet even when they are busy.

I ordered the daily special, for $14.95. I received a plate of sushi, a plate of tempura, a salad, and a bowl of udon. I could barely eat all of it. If you like Japanese food, you will enjoy this restaurant. The service is prompt and professional and the restaurant is clean. Complimentary Barley Tea was served. At 5:30PM on... More

I'm not very adventurous, and so I was apprehensive when our friends from Japan wanted to take me for Japanese food. Well, I'm glad they did! It was so good! The staff was fantastic! The menu was very diverse, but then again, it's my first time with Japanese food. It was definitely worth the trip to Torrence. Everyone loved their... More
