We had dinner in this Japanese restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful evening. Great food , quick and excellent service and real Japanese food. They have a great offer of nigiri, hand roll and sashimi. Great for families. This is a recognized Japanese place, with great local reviews and awards. Great to stop by and have a wonderful meal.

I visited here twice in the same week with co-workers. Once for lunch - bento boxes were delicious; and the second time for a sushi dinner which was beautifully prepared and I tried some new sushi dishes which were all really tasty. The service was great both times and the prices were comparable to other restaurants for sushi.

Went to Matsu Japanese restaurant with my wife and son. Small, clean, little place that doesn't look like much from the outside. Very nice place with authentic, freshly made, Japanese food. We all got "Bento boxes" so much hat we could order different things and then share. Everything we had was great. Very nice little Japanese place.

This place is average not sure what all the hype is about. This is my 3d time there and first time ordering a bento box. I normally go for the sushi/sashimi which are flavorful with an average price (rolls range from around $5 to $12 each). The bento box however is not filling for lunch. I am a 125 pound... More

Awesome location for sushi or tasty bento boxes. The sushi is fresh and well prepared. Excellent service. Tasty miso soup. I haven't ever seen it crowded, and I don't know why. Great food and very reasonably priced.

What I ordered: Nabe Yaki Soba Cost: $9.99 + tax When I saw the reviews for this place I knew I had to make a stop here during my stay in Maryland. As a former resident of Japan I'm always on the lookout for quality Japanese food. The first thing I noticed was that all of the staff were speaking... More

This Japanese restaurant offers a great sushi lunch special from Monday through Saturday. This is a quaint little restaurant that offers great food while being very pleasant. I am a fan of their shrimp tempura rolls as the shrimp is always hot unlike other places that serve them cold. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant!

Matsu Japanese offers an authentic Japanese dining experience, and delicious sushi. The servers in kimonos are a very nice touch. But you pay a little more for the dining experience than you would at another nearby sushi place with great reviews. I ordered the Parot roll and the Amber roll -- both were excellent, and filling!! I don't think I... More

I was recommended to visit this restaurant by the clerk at my hotel and I am sure glad I listened to her! The sushi is made to order and served in a timely manner. It is fairly small for a restaurant but very quaint. I had the 3 roll special with soup and was very pleased with my meal. I... More

I ordered the fried pork cutlet which was tasteless and my husband ordered sushi which he said wasn't the freshest. We were also uncomfortable with one girl bossing around everyone else in another language...just not our cup of tea. This is our second time there and didn't care for it either time.
