Yes I would go back for the food, I'd just be prepared for not a very atmospheric or attractive restaurant. Not enough customers but too many for the one overworked waitress to manage, They had clearers who were not allowed to make a decision and...More

Interesting menu to celebrate a Birthday. Not happy how they serve the food. All food does not arrive at the same time. Some of the people already finished their meal while some of them were still waiting for their food.

I really love Matsuya. Once you step into the restaurant, you really feel like you are in Japan. The food is amazing and the waiting staff is friendly. I especially love the warm towel they provide before your meal to clean your hands.

There are lots of places serving Japanese and Asian cuisine around. You try one, you've tried them all. All sell the same Westernised versions of noodles and sushi. Not so Matsuya. Although not Japanese owned, this is as close to authentic Japanese cuisine you will...More

The food here is really excellent. We've been to Japan and this is very authentic. The menu is enormous and difficult to sift through. The staff are terrible and borderline unfriendly. When I asked what a hot pot is she told me 'it's a pot...More

Matsuya is one of a very few places that offers authentic japanese food around. One of our favourites is the buckweed soup pot with tempura. Definite an experience not to miss if you enjoy authentic japanese food
