I hadn't been back to Matsuya for many years. This was always one of my favorite Japanese restaurants...but the busy neighborhood and the fact that I don't live nearby had kept me away. I found myself in the area and decided to try an old...More

I was here with a friend, wasn't very hungry (which is probably not the best start for a 5-star review) and chose a roll randomly. Although the friendly service seemed a little slow (the place was far from crowded), I fully enjoyed my meal, that...More

Their food is good, but we had the worst customer experience there today. We were seated and ordered right away. The miso soup came quickly, but once a large party came in, they completely forgot about us. We ordered the Matsuya set A and waited...More

As an Asian teenager, I LOVE JAPANESE AND CHINESE FOOD! So when my cousins suggested to go to to Matsuya, I agreed. Let me just say- their udon is AMAZING. So is their rice! I LOVE IT and would totally recommend for Japanese food lovers.

Been searching for a Japanese resto in Chicago that serves takoyaki and YES they have it here! They also serve free fried tofu that is crunchy yet soft just deliciously good! Oh and try the katsu don too. Definitely worth the hour drive !

I used to live nearby and this was my go to sushi place for a long time. It's nothing fancy, but they have a nice variety and the quality is usually very good. The place is very casual and i think they do a lot...More

My fiancé and I go here often. Usually very good (4-stars). Not the best on this occasion. In particular, the tuna was a bit stringy (anyone who's had maguro knows the texture of an excellent piece of tuna). I tried the Hawaiian roll. Mango, tuna...More
