matsu is a great neighbourhood japanese restuarant....a staple of mine that i go back to again and again. the sushi here is innovative and forward thinking (try the aji, sashimi jalepeno, and king crab appies....my faves!) and the prices are fantastic. staff are always friendly and the owners are very cool. its very cozy but that gives it much of character.....one should also try the new sister restaurant MM2D....literally, matsu 2 doors down.

I read the reviews of Matsu on this site and decided to try it. I'm so glad I did. In a neighborhood with tons of sushi joints (many of them overpriced), Matsu is a gem. The rolls are packed with fish, and everything is fresh and tasty. Best of all, the prices are extremely reasonable. I brought my roommates, and we have all become devoted fans.

Never have eaten at the restaurant, but the quality of the sushi upon delivery is superb. Very tasty!

We ate in the other night and had a great meal. We were the only ones there since it was early, and we were very well cared for. The staff was very friendly, the food was delicious, and the prices were very reasonable! The amount of food was also very good...we ordered our usual amount of rolls, but ended up taking home enough for lunch the next day. Overall a very good experience.

The Best of The Best roll may be well called The Best &^ The Worst roll. Just order it and crack one open - you'll find inside the unwanted portions of fish - dark and not a good quality. The Salmon Lovers roll was extremely fishy - from the skin, I suppose. The special eel roll was covered in mayonnaise - although one reviewer suggests that the chef comes up with unusual combinations, eel is mayonnaise is not the unusual that I would look for. Too much goopy sauce - probably better of sticking to sashimi.

It is a hidden jewel and I would be in ecstacy if I find this place in Boston where I used to live and I were a sushi-loving American. Unfortunately I am a native Japanese now living in NY where has the most number of REAL Japanese restaurants available in the US (thanks to all the Japanese businessmen from Tokyo). My standard is quite high. Even though the owner/chef/staffs are very nice and attentive and their dishes are not bad at all, they (workers & dishes) are not authentic Japanese. The sushi rice is too soft (never acceptable in Japan), together with the too big size of maki roll piece each, it is a bit too difficult to munch, almost choking, unless you have a big mouth. Freshness of fish is just acceptable. But, hey, sushi and Japanese foods are getting part of American cuisine these days, like bagles and pizzas are. As long as you don't look for the authenticy, this is a reasonably neiborhood sushi place for you.

A neighborhood secret. Matsu serves up super-fresh delicious sushi and sashimi every time. Matsu and his lovely family are ridiculously kind and generous people; stop by and be spoilt by their good spirits and fabulous food.
