On April 2007, my friends and I, 6 of us, went to Matsuri to try out their Teryaki Chicken w/Tempura and their Teryaki Beef w/Tempura for dinner. We always like to go to different Japanese Restaurants to try out their Teryaki Chicken w/Tempura, Teryaki Beef w/Tempura, and sushi/sashimi. When we walked in, one of the Matsuri staff picked up the drumsticks and started striking the Japanese Taiko drum. All the Matsuri staff greeted us and smiled at us, they were very hospitable. We ordered their Teryaki Chicken w/Tempura & their Teryaki Beef w/Tempura, 3 of us also ordered some sushi/sashimi. Our orders were ready in 12 minutes. Our orders came with miso soup(our ratings: average), salad(our ratings: recommended), potato salad(our ratings: below average, it was alittle bit bland), slice of honeydew melon(our ratings: average), teryaki chicken or teryaki beef(our ratings: below average, the teryaki sauce tasted fishy), rice(our ratings: average), and shrimp & vegetable tempura(our ratings: below average, tempura sauce was bland). My friends said that the sushi/sashimi were delicious. The service was great. When I accidentally dropped my chopsticks, I didn't even ask the waiter to get me new chopsticks, the waiter immediately gave me new chopsticks and bowed to me. For dinner, expect to spend about $12.50 - $18.00 per person. After we ate, paid for our dinner, stood up, and walked toward the exit, all the Matsuri staff said goodbye and smiled at us. If you are looking for great service, hospitality, delicious sushi/sashimi, and want to hear the Japanese Taiko drum, then I would highly recommend Matsuri.
