Wow I enjoy visiting this place that give you more than one can eat with the fried rice. I am not a sushi eater, but love their vegetable fried rice with fresh vegetable and my girl had chicken fried rice. We got enough for 2 meals and it was Justas good the second time.

I took my daughter to Matoi Japanese (owned, operated and staffed by Koreans) Sushi Restaurant today because we were 'in the neighborhood,' I had not been there in a while, I had always enjoyed the food, service and ambiance in the past and we both love sushi! We were NOT disappointed we went. The restaurant is kind of dark, the... More

An old favorite in a convenient location on Dale Mabry a short distance south of I-275. Has a loyal following among folks who like adventuresome cuisine with some spice. The sushi chefs work assiduously but it is the Korean cuisine which shines. The servers are plentiful and friendly, and will remember you after a couple of visits. Through a long... More

I like this restaurant ! it has a very good service and very good choices between sushi and Korean dishes. If you do not get immediate attention ring the bell located at every table to call the server's attention.I prefer the sushi over the Korean dishes but is a matter of taste. They offer happy hour till 8 pm. Portions... More

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.

The only meaningful gauge for a sushi bar is their nigiri or sashimi, since everything else is derivative, with more ingredients to hide in. 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.
