Came to Izaka Matsuri on our first night in Cape Town and loved it. Great service and some of the best tasting fish we have ever had. We are only on town for a week but will definitely be back.

We turned up quite late to this gem of a Japanese restaurant in the Waterkrant. The food was delicious - I had the special rolls - and the service was excellent. It was also good value for money and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Best sushi I've had in a long time. This place is fabulous. Highly recommend eating here. I'm new to sushi and haven't tried too many places but I was blown away and came back 3 separate times to eat. Great menu. Friendly staff.

Fabulous little hidden gem in the Cape Quarters near Victoria Junction. Totally unpretentious, with the most fabulous fresh seafood.
