I visited Matsuri 10 years ago and vowed never to go again. When I discovered yesterday evening I was to return, I only hoped things had improved. I'm sorry to say nothing has changed, this still remains one of the worst Japanese restaurants outside of Japan. The food is slightly above average, although the Sashimi certainly was not particulraly fresh, I've seen better in high street supermarkets. The Tepanyaki steak, whilst cooked to perfection, was as tough as a Sumo wrestlers thong. The service, whilst prettily packaged Japanese, lacks any real character and true Japanese quality. The main issue I have with the restaurant is the stench of fatty food which lingers as soon as you enter. They really need to upgrade the extractor fans above the Tepenyaki tables, assuming they turned them on. I've no problem with paying for great Japanese food, but this place is high priced for extremely average food and poor service. One to avoid for the next 10 years.
