“Can't stop going here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

I don't like going to the same place over and over but we are stuck on Joes sushi. The dynamite cones are addictive. The chop chop is superb and the toro devine. Been going for years and never had bad mouthful of food. Joe is an expert and very personable. This sushi house is not the place for innovative food. It does one thing very well.

“Love the oiler maki, and the red snapper.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

I have been going to Matsuya over 10 years and have always had a pleasant visit. The portions are great, always fresh, and great service from everyone there. I hifhly recommend the oiler maki and the tai tataki.

“OMG this is Fooood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

outside you think, really? and even when you go in you think you are in someones house from the late seventies but just take a seat and within minutes you will know you have just stumbled upon a jewel in the park. Staff friendly, efficient with service. The food is to die for. Freshly prepared sushi with big portions, green tea galore and really really tasty food. You must try this place

“Focus is on the Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

The atmosphere is dated and it's in a hole-in-the-wall location but the food (and treating customers like gold) is definitely the focus. I have frequented Matsuya for years for sit-down or take-out sushi. I have taken EVERYONE I know there. The portions of seafood are generous, SO well-prepared, and the service is faster than you can imagine. I call it our "fast food" place when we don't feel like cooking or have much time to linger. The Oiler maki is a must (order two...you won't be sorry if you have to take leftovers home)!
