I am a sushi lover myself and I have to say that Matsuri is one of the few places in Costa Rica where I can get acceptable and delicious sushi.

Expectations were far exceeded at this shopping center locale with the expansive menu and delicious food! The orange chicken was absolutely delicious and I really enoyed the unique taste of saki and red wine sangria!!

The several times we have gone to this restaurant it has offered fresh and high quality sushi. There are also many other dishes on their menu but sushi is the best option. Friendly service and a convenient location.

The menu looks good but the quality is not all that. Although the portion sizes are good, the fish doesn't taste fresh, the rise is missing something and the favour is average to say the least.

In my opinion, Matsuri serves the very best sushi and sashimi. Cooks are experts and the presentation always perfect. Great service.

The sushi is always a solid choice as it's delicious and made fresh. However, the best value is in the lunch options as the bento boxes are very fairly priced and have great variety.

So i had a beef soup and some fried shrimps. The shrimps were very long and were just about 6-7 in the plate. They were accompanied by a lot of fried carrot. Ok in taste but not to die for. The soup was quite bad. Just boiled beef and vegetables. No spices at all. Maybe i don't know the Japanese... More

You have so many other Great places to choose from. Matsuri is convenient and better priced that those other options but the quality and freshness of the food is lacking. Best sushi in CR would be Samurai, Fuji, Nau lounge and Sakura. You'll do just fine in any of those 4 options. Enjoy!

Never again, Although the seaweed salad was tasty, my husbands steak was over cooked, we had to ask for the soup and extras. The service is lousy, and I was told by a manager? So called where to sit. INSTEAD go to Tsunami Sushi up the road near PaPa Johns & Don Fernando. The service is excellent, and the food... More

This place has great sushi, they serve sushi in a really nice way and the service was great. Besides of having a great taste the size of the plate is big. They have a lot of choices to choose from.
