Squaremeal Review of Matsuri ?

Matsuri’s cavernous basement combines the flames and sizzle of teppanyaki with a more sedate sushi bar in a setting that is all about theatre and fun – although some think it’s starting to look “a bit tired”.

It was a somewhat strange feeling in this very luxurious place, but I for one quite enjoyed it.


    The four of us ordered a starter each and then a variety of teppanyaki to share. I still remember the first time I had a teppanyaki experience in a restaurant in Zurich, and this dinner proved that it will never fail to amaze me...
