The absolute best sushi around! If you go anywhere else, you might as well buy it day old from the supermarket. Best sushi from south bend in, to California?

As always Matuba's doesn't fail to deliver. The food was great and fast as usual, and the service is always so friendly. We love going to Matuba's!

I cannot say enough about Matuba's. Robert and the staff always are friendly and treat you like they've known you forever. The menu is incredible. There are so many different rolls to choose from, it is hard to decide what you want to eat. But for me, this is a good problem to have. There is something for everyone here.... More

This was my first sushi venture in South Bend, and I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered a roll and some sashimi. The chef, Robert, was friendly and the rolls were made with expert presentation. The quality of the fish could be better...I'm not saying it isn't fresh, but it does not appear to be the high quality melt-in-your-mouth variety. There's... More

We were looking for a new spot to try & I stumbled upon the reviews for this place. Everyone has raved about how amazing this place is. My friends and I went there for their birthday dinner. I was not impressed. A) I knew from reading the reviews to anticipate a wait for the sushi. I wouldn't mind waiting if... More

Pleasant staff. Decor was dated and horrific. If you know sushi, pass on this place! Globs of spicy mayo on the rolls, when it should have been a light drizzle. Oh and yes...waited over an hour for three terrible rolls.

We have been looking for a good place for sushi around here and finally found it! Don't be discouraged by what the place looks like - the food is wonderful! We had an amazing server who helped us pick out different sushi to try (their menu is quite extensive!) and was incredibly helpful in figuring out what we wanted. The... More

I am a big fan of sushi and was thrilled to find Matuba in South Bend. Robert, the sushi chef and owner, is very personable and masterful at his art. Robert has created over 50 plus different sushi rolls to tempt the palate of everyone that comes in through the door. I keep on saying that I am going to... More

Matuba is the best sushi place in town. Their sushi is great, I've been going to Matuba for years and have never had a bad experience. Go to Matuba once and Robert (the sushi chef and owner) will remember you. He is very friendly, makes great sushi, and is a very hard working local business owner (I have not been... More

The meal was good and competitively priced. The restaurant has a little age. The service was great. I was the only customer in the restaurant.
