Very small local lunch place. Order at the counter. We had 2 sushi rolls and a Spam Muso which was surprisingly good and tea for $20. Tea was extra and not impressive, Costco Green Tea from a coated paper cup. I'd pass on the tea...More

Just driving while in Maui we decided to try some sushi where locals go. We ordered the beef teriyaki and spicy salmon sushi and unagi maki. Everything was fresh cooked perfectly and delicious.

The food is typical local plates, but above average and very good. It's a small place, couple blocks into the industrial area in Kahului. It's very popular and often packed during lunch.

I am pretty surprised to see some bad reviews. Perhaps, the restaurant doesn't have ambiance and the best services, but the food is surprisingly good. The noodle in the tempura udon is one of the tops, and tempura itself is really tasty without thick batter...More

This is a counter service restaurant but don't let that fool you. I loved the food. The fried chicken is amazing and the tempura was very light and not oily. A lot of locals eat here and I certainly will go back the next time...More

I went there since it is on "10 best Asian restaurants" Maui list. I do not think this is the case however. Nothing special. Nobody calls McDonalds "best American restaurant" so this clearly applies to Matsu as well. Cheap self-service eatery. Food is average food...More
