Good Korean. Sushi is okay. The service is good! Not really kids friendly but good for going with friends or business associates. Will recommend it and would come back for lunch again.

Matoi Sushi was recommended by a family member and it did not disappoint--although I wish they had warned us about the portion size! We ordered 3 different kinds of rolls (they offer lots of interesting choices) and they were HUGE-- we could barely finish them.

I almost never take the effort to review places, but this time I had to just because the fish blew my mind. The salmon was among the best I've ever had, and the tuna, mackerel, and... More

We enjoy Matoi's regularly, the sushi is always fresh and of good quality. The traditional Korean dishes are also very good and authentic. Service is always fantastic.

A great, traditional sushi restaurant with fresh food! Sushi was fresh and tasted great along with the pot stickers! Some of the best in Tampa for a great value! Can't wait to return!

I make an annual business trip to the Tampa Bay area ever December. Matoi was recommended to me by a hotel front desk clerk several years ago. I have since made it my habit to dine there each trip. I was solo this past trip, so I sat at the sushi bar. Watching the chefs work their magic is fun... More

I must say the quality of the food is very Good, the happy hour is great. My wife and I have been here more than six times, and the only BAD thing about Matoi is the servers!! They try to rush you to order, and I guess they forget that YOU as a customer waited for a table as well.... More

We live in Sarasota but come to Tampa often on business and pleasure in addition to staying near the airport prior to early flights out of TPA. Matoi was a pleasant surprise. Amazing quality and incredible staff who really care. This is a can't miss visit. You can also order to go. We'll be back for sure!
