A great, traditional sushi restaurant with fresh food! Sushi was fresh and tasted great along with the pot stickers! Some of the best in Tampa for a great value! Can't wait to return!

I make an annual business trip to the Tampa Bay area ever December. Matoi was recommended to me by a hotel front desk clerk several years ago. I have since made it my habit to dine there each trip. I was solo this past trip, so I sat at the sushi bar. Watching the chefs work their magic is fun... More

I must say the quality of the food is very Good, the happy hour is great. My wife and I have been here more than six times, and the only BAD thing about Matoi is the servers!! They try to rush you to order, and I guess they forget that YOU as a customer waited for a table as well.... More

We live in Sarasota but come to Tampa often on business and pleasure in addition to staying near the airport prior to early flights out of TPA. Matoi was a pleasant surprise. Amazing quality and incredible staff who really care. This is a can't miss visit. You can also order to go. We'll be back for sure!

I once worked for Samsung at an executive level and as a result I became very familiar with Korean culture, especially the business and social aspects of Korean life. Very few Americans are familiar with Korean cuisine, as opposed to other Asian food such as Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Indian. If you are one of these people you don't know... More

My family visits Tampa every year, and a trip down here is never complete without +1 visits to the BEST sushi in Tampa! The sashimi is always thickly-cut, fresh and buttery. I`ve never ate sushi rolls as creative and delicious as the ones served here--every single one is a winner (Sweetheart roll, Susan roll, Pirates roll...) The entrees are always... More

We eat here frequently and love both the sushi and the traditional Korean dishes. The stone pots are awesome and the volcano roll is amazing. The service is great and the menu selection is quite large.

This restaurant is simply amazing and I cannot wait to return. The service, menu, and food is great. I had Korean fare and it turned out exactly as I expected. The sushi menu was amazing and Matoi had plenty of options to choose from. The tables have a service button which is a definite bonus in case you need something... More

My wife and I have been coming here for years and we are never disappointed. Sushi is always fresh and delicious. They have a great variety of specials as well. The real treat here is the Korean food though. Hard to find really well done traditional Korean food in Florida, and this place absolutely knocks it out of the park!... More
