What does a nondescript strip mall in Miami have in common with the world's largest fish market in Tokyo? Excellent sushi. Unlike sushi restaurants bordering Tsukiji, however, Matsuri also offers a variety of teriaki, tempura, meat, seafood, tofu, and noodle dishes, and a good selection of soups and salads. Special Lunch Box choices provide an excellent introduction -- miso soup,... More

We went for dinner with my sister, brother-in-law and niece who lived very near and love sushi. They had never been. We tried many things on the menu and they were all excellent. Some great rolls and the fried soft shell crab was fantastic. Will definitely be back when next in Miami! The service was also excellent and the restaurant... More

We have been going to Matsuri regularly for 10+ years. The sushi quality far exceeds any Japanese restaurant that we've been to in South Florida or on our travels. Our sons, now living in other big foodie cities, always make it a point to eat at Matsuri whenever home for a visit. It is their benchmark for great sushi! The... More

I ate at Matsuri twice, once for dinner at a table, once take out for lunch. I have to say that the lunch food is much more value for the money. I will go there again and again, but only for lunch/take out. Cons: the portions were small and the price steep (at dinner). It was also very noisy. I... More

This has been the best sushi restaurant in Miami for the last 17 years. Other more "fashionable" places are found in Miami, but this is hands on the best sushi. Staff is good and ambience very agreable.

Super fresh, excellent quality food. The flavor profiles are spot on. I had one dish that was very good, but heavy handed on the mayo style sauce, which was the tuna bagette. The sea urchin was excuisite as was the toro. The roll, invitation to the white house was Excellent. I look forward to going back!

Please note they're closed Mondays! I've been going here for over 10 years now, and it's still one of my favourite restaurants in town. Since its spike in popularity a few years back, it does get quite crowded, so do plan ahead and either go early for lunch or dinner, or just reserve a table. I personally prefer coming here... More

Being fond of Japanese cuisine, our family explores opprotunities or rakes risks to try top-rated locations wherever we go. This time we had a day between ship disembarcation and plane boarding so we gave Matsuri a chance. Kinda hard to explain to a driver where it is, as the address is a tricky one. Bird Road is actually a 40sw.... More
