I understood from Tripadvisor, subsequent to my visit, that the chef had been arrested the night before. In those circumstances the restaurant should phone up the people who have reserved and at the very least suggest that they may be better off going elsewhere. Suffice to say that the service was dreadful - it took 45 minutes to even get... More

Did they give everyone a free glass of wine or 2 for... More

The sushi and sashimi is extremely fresh and gorgeous!the guy with specs who runs the restaurant is extremely friendly and the service very quick and efficient. Dessert a bit of a hit and miss but why would one go to a Japanese restaurant for dessert?! The main dishes are delicious especially the lettuce and beef dish, the fish dish with... More

Small restaurant that does take away food as well. We did enjoy our time there however we thought the staff was busy with the take away, delivery guys. Staff was ok. Good food and good sake too. I do recommend and i'll go back. Got the take away menu as well.

Went a few weeks ago and was impressed by stock in soup, good starters (Gyoza very good) BUT, it is a tad expensive. Went last night and was very disappointed.First of all, the fussy waiter kept on moving things around our table and wiping it while we were still sat there. The wonderful stock in the tempura udon soup was... More

After the movies we headed for Matsuba, having not eaten there for a few years. It seems as though it has kept up its standards with great and tasty food and really well-mannered staff. We loved it and hope not to leave it too long before our next visit.

The tension between the waitstaff and the mother/son owners was palpable from the moment I sat down at the sushi bar. it was a slow start to a Saturday night at the restaurant even though my reservation was for 7:30pm. I was the only patron at the sushi bar and one of two patrons in the entire restaurant until about... More
