To me its the best sushi we have going in Miami. What I really mean is American style. The spicy tuna, the California roll, typical sashimi together with a few more traditional. But it has the best and freshest fish around. The two things I don't like: 1) the is always a wait (for good reason) and 2) I want... More

My friends who living in Florida have always recommend this place. It's been their go-to for " Haru "and I can see why. Efficient and super yummy Haru , this complete dinner special is to die for too! Definitely give this place a visit

I can't believe I just now discovered this wonderful Japanese restaurant after years of dining in Miami! This will now be a weekly spot for me, even if it's not the most convenient location. It is well worth the extra miles. I made a reservation and I highly recommend this since the restaurant is small and very busy. They are... More

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.
