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

Good place to get plate lunch Japanese style food. My favorite dish is their yakitori chicken. I recommend eating lunch here as they do close early.

I love this place! Their hamachi Kama is so so so delicious! Great prices, large portions, and a homey environment. One of my favorite places in Maui.

First time back in a few years and we ordered the miso butter fish. Hands down still the best thing on the menu. Get it and you will not be disappointed.

Very good price and surprisingly good food and quality. Authentic Japanese deep fried food and soup noodle. Batter wasn't think. Deep fried oyster was fresh. Noodle soup wasn't salty like those MSG ones. Portion was huge. Deep fried soft shell crab was fresh too. Sushi...More
