The sushi was really good. Thai food was ok. Missed being greeted by Robert. Service was good. Sushi menu is paired down (not 20 pages long anymore), which is good. What would really help this restaurant is a much-needed renovation. The ambience is severely lacking.

This is hands down the best place to go for high quality sushi and Japanese-oriented food in the Elkhart / Mishawaka / South Bend area. There is no comparison to Robert's sushi and I challenge someone to prove me otherwise. A fair warning, this restaurant...More

The attention to quality is what sets Matuba ahead of other sushi options in the area. Ingredients are always fresh and there are tons of options. Strongly recommend.

DEFINITE RECOMMEND. Sushi and Sashimi are as good as or better than anywhere else I've tried in town, and Robert's welcoming attitude tips the scale. Ask him for his "Magic Sauce" if it's not jammed, he'll make a little for you - a little spicy,...More

I came here based on the glowing, enthusiastic reviews. You know it's the real deal when Quail eggs, Mackerel, and Octopus are on the menu, and they get points for that alone. I ordered Japanese noodles with vegetables, which came with miso soup (correctly covered)...More

By far the best place in the area for sushi. Plus, there are a lot of other good options on the menu. Robert, the owner and sushi chef, is one of the friendliest and kindest people you'll ever meet. Do yourself a favor, stop in...More

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...More
