This is one of my favorite Japanese gems in all of Miami! My friend introduced me to Matsuri because he's been a long time regular for their lunch special and after trying it I can definitely see why! Located in a large shopping mall, it's a small restaurant with plenty ambiance. It does get a little cozy when it's crowded (which it often is) but the high quality service never makes it feel like a problem. I recently took my boyfriend to try their famed $9 bento box lunch special in which he was surprised not knowing about since he used to live in the area. We sat at the sushi bar and the restaurant was already filled. The owner of the restaurant does everything right----you constantly watch him circle his sushi chefs as he keeps an eye on different staff members which is why eating at Matsuri is always an excellent experience.
We ordered two rolls alongside our bento boxes which was way too much food; the box is plenty enough for a meal (comes with California rolls/salad) and there is a large variety of options so you can build your box to your taste preference. My boyfriend got: shrimp tempura & sashimi within his box and raved about it. Freshest sashimi he's had since he last went spear fishing and the best California rolls he's ever tasted---considering that he hates them. I ordered the same thing and was very satisfied.
I've been here for dinner as well which is an extensive menu of sushi, rolls, and authentic Japanese dishes----none have disappointed me thus far. If you love quality sushi this a must try restaurant!
