If you are in the mood for quick Japanese food this is the place to go. The prices are very fair and the menu is full of options but I noticed most ordered the Bento Box. We did and were very surprised how fast it came out of the kitchen. The food tasted fine but the beer was better. Will... More

I ordered the bento box with salmon and chicken teriyaki. It was perfect portion , but the chicken was a little bit dry. It included a salad , miso soup and two pieces of california roll. Service was super good. I would come back again , but won't order the chicken.

This is a nice local restaurant. If you go in a few times, they learn your name. Good for quick sushi fix. Many different rolls to choose from. Also, have bento boxes if you don't eat sushi

Food and choices were decent, Prices within range of what to be expected. Cafeteria-type atmosphere but great for a quick bite.

SOOOO good! Authentic Japanese food. I loved the Sushi rolls. You have to try the Triple S, Dragon, Tiger, Hollywood, and Lakewood Rolls. AMAZING. And the edamame and chicken teriyaki are to die for. :D

Matsuyama may not have the nicest decor but they have some of the sushi best rolls I've ever had. The restaurant is rather small and the decor is very casual, but the service is consistently excellent and their rolls are great. It's one of those restaurants where after you dine there a couple of times the staff knows you and... More

They used to have a good sushi chef but now its only average quality and way over priced for what they offer. The restaurant itself is of boring design and style - you're better off somewhere else.

Matsayama Sushi has the best low-budget sushi in Lodi. The Spicy Kings roll is awesome, along with the Volcano Roll, The Hanabi Roll, The Golden Dragon, The Spiderman. They also have great gyoza and edimame. I come here at least once a week for take-out. The staff is really friendly every time I call or dine-in. Two thumbs up!
