“Great food, lovely people”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Matsu Sushi is an ideal gathering spot when you need a place that caters to all tastes and inclinations. Folks who don't want to experiment will be happy with the beef or chicken teryiaki. The rest of us will relish the sushi and cooked offerings that include interesting local selections like the Lift Lock bento box. The staff are effusively welcoming. Once you're over the shock of having somebody yell Hello, you can relax and enjoy some really tasty offerings beautifully presented.

This establishment goes out of its way to accommodate birthdays and other special occasions with the result that both of my teenagers feel like something isn't really special unless it gets celebrated there. The cut fruit boat given to people turning a year older is a work of art. The photo albums signed by birthday parties are a testament to the growing number of local families who see it as a must-do family celebration destination.

“something for everyone”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

What a great place for friends to gather and try a wonderful sampling of food. Eat a little or a lot, there is something for everyone. If you really enjoy something, order more. This was a wonderful way to spend an evening with friends.

“Great selection, fun environment!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

The moment you step in (or out), in true Japanese tradition, the sushi master and the staff lets everybody know your presence. Saying hello , how are you at the top of their lungs - you're now set for your good Japanese food adventure. Dining alone, I sat at the sushi bar, ordered my Sapporo beer, a nice refreshing brew with sweet undertone perfect for sushi and makis. I ordered my tempura bento - a huge box of goodness with 12 different makis and 6 assorted sushis. 2 pcs shrimp tempuras with vegetable sides. Bentos come with miso salad and tofu appetizer. Not the best of sushis and makis but definitely a fun great way to experience Japanese dining in Peterborough.

“Excellent quality of food and great service”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We have tried all other sushi restaurants in Peterborough, but always come back to Matsu. Their food quality and attention to detail is excellent, and the staff are always super friendly.
