Matsuri is a good middle-market Japanese diner serving all of the usual sushi/sashimi/noodle dishes you'd expect.

I love eating at matsuri! I would highly recommend bento box a which for about $30 comes with enough food to fill two people comfortably. The sashimi is fresh and delicious. The restaurant is centrally located in cairns, is a good midrange price and has an extensive menu.

I ate here a few years ago and enjoyed the meal, tonight not so much tonight.

Food was average, and not really worth the visit if you really enjoy your Japanese cuisine. The chicken karaage felt undercooked and had no real flavour, the sashimi could have been much better (Cairns is by the sea after all). The manager was entertaining guests (as others have noted).

Standard range of Japanese beers, only one sake (house sake).

Service was fast, with the place being full (other reviewers have noted slow service, I did not experience that this night).

You can't get better Japanese food in Cairns! Fresh and delish. Great broths! Great sushi rolls! The set meals are amazing! The set box A has everything you could ever want in a Japanese meal. Highly recommend it for some dinner. Can be busy at times but usually food comes out in a good time frame. Staff are always lovely!
