Fresh, Tasty and authentic Japanese Food! One of our favourite Sushi restaurants in the Lower Mainland! You will find that the food is made with care and not slapped together like some of those other sushi restaurants. The fish is always fresh and the sushi rice is always perfect!

Matoi Sushi is a warm and inviting small restaurant serving, arguably, the best traditional Japanese food on the eastside. All the menu items we have sampled are tasty, carefully prepared and nicely presented, and there is an interesting list of daily specials usually involving some fish dishes. Because it is so hard to choose among this bounty, we often opt for the sushi dinner box--an ample array of california roll, shrimp, tuna and salmon sushi, and tofu, served with beef or chicken teriaki., tempura, rice and salad. The sushi is squeaky fresh--pure essense of fish not really requiring the pickled ginger and wasabi garnishes. The octopus in the sunomono cold noodle salad also is fresh and tender. The various noodle offerings are also very good as are the don rice bowls. I am less thrilled by the fried appetizers, mainly because I prefer tempura-style batter to more greasy breading, though other reviewers praise their fried oysters and chicken strips. The yakitori chicken skewers are nicely grilled with a light seasoning, however. Overall, Matoi Sushi offers ample servings of freshly prepared Japanese foods at very reasonable prices. Well worth your while for a pleasant dinner with good service in a relaxing environment.

Always delicious. The daily special is an awesome value. A huge bento box with the usual, then they also add the daily feature ( baked salmon, other type of fish etc).

Great service, everyone thanks you many times when you enter and leave. Authentic Japanese decor.

Delicious!

Have been going here for a while and it's really one of the few "true" Japanese restaurants in the area.

Atmosphere - small but quite neat Japanese restaurant. It can get hot in there when there is a full house and the sun is beating down between 6 to 8pm.

Food - VERY GOOD - always fresh but they do run out of the "off-the-menu" sashimis and grilled foods so get there early.

Service - can be slow when the restaurant is very busy.

Price - Very reasonable for the quality of food. You would pay 2x in Vancouver for the same quality.
