Wanted the edamame to arrive with drinks, but arrived 1 minute before the food. Two of us had sushi, which was fresh and decent, they were small bites, just perfect unlike some places where they fill it up with rice. The spicy tuna temaki wasn't spicy at all, seemed to be a simple tuna temaki, maybe misunderstood order. The ginger... More

We asked at the Japanese Consulate where we could get some good Japanese food - not just American-style sushi as so many so-called "Japanese restaurants" feature. Although Matsuri had a varied menu, including tempura, which is how I measure Japanese restaurants, literally everyone in the packed, crowded late-lunch crowd was eating sushi. Although we were seated pretty quickly (my 90-year-old... More

We go to Matsuri regularly. Everything is always fresh, the portions are perfect and the prices are extremely reasonable. Service is always fast. Reservations are recommended as this place gets packed. It's a smaller restaurant so you will most likely be seated very close to other tables, so it is not the most intimate. Overall, great restaurant!

We had a "good" dinner at Matsuri. Atmosphere was great, service quick and efficient. Food was good but some nigri pieces on the smaller side. Salmon carpacio salad was great. Overall a good meal.

The food was very good, but it was not an enjoyable meal. The restaurant has its tables 4 inches apart where we were sitting. We could not hear each other over the loud talkers next to us. We had planned on getting a bottle of wine and having a relaxing dinner. Instead we decided to eat and get out and... More

The best sushi that doesn't (does NOT)cost hundreds of dollars per person like other spots in Miami. Blue Fin Tuna is like butter, but everything is good.

The food is very good and the place is always packed with locals and with Japanese people young and old. Because it's so busy and packed it's not great for dining however when we're in the mood for sushi that's where we go.

Full of people, cannot get in without reservations. It is a little noisy. Service is very good and the best of it is the Sushi. They have good desserts too.

Matsuri is hands down the best authentic Japanese food in Miami. The food is beautifully displayed and at an amazing price point. The atmosphere is friendly and a great place for children. If you're looking for REAL Japanese food, this is the place.

I have written eviews on Matsuri on other occasions. They do not cease to amaze me. The restaurant is always very noisy, but that's because it is always full.
