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.

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