A word from Matsuya Japanese Restaurant
With over 40 years of experience in Japanese cuisine, Master Iida offers his freshly hand-crafted sushi. This traditional Japanese style is one you cannot find anywhere else.
With our premium Japanese Sake, served hot or cold, you will be transported to the true experience of Japanese dining. More over, we offer a selection of imported Japanese beers, such as Sapporo Asahi and Kirin. Unlike the usual Japanese restaurants that serve fusion dishes, Matsuya offers name-styled Japanese dishes, like our steak teriyaki ,our takoyaki, or bitter heart(rolled with cucumber, tuna, salmon, avocado, kaiware without rice and ponzu sauce). We are conveniently located at the heart of Lakeview, next to the Belmont train station. We are very easy to find.

  • Great Sushi, Better Price
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    We set out to try and find a decent place in the area for food around 8pm on a Friday, and after 4 places told us they had a 1 hour wait we gave up and opened OpenTable. Matsuya had a good rating and was inexpensive so we decided to give it a shot. Food was awesome, not sushi that's going to win a James Beard award but considering the four of us spent about $25 a person for enough food to stuff us all, it was the best sushi around. Definitely on my list to go back, they were awesome!

  • Helped with gluten-free needs
    Dined on 5/20/2014
    A member of our dining party had serious gluten free dietary restrictions (celiac disease) , and the staff, including the manager oversaw his food selection to ensure that he didn't order incorrectly. The sushi and gyoza were excellent and the service friendly and efficient (got us out in time for cubbies).
    Special Features:
    great for lunch, neighborhood gem

    Dined on 4/1/2014
    Excellent food that is designed to appeal not only to the taste buds but to the eyes as well. Great for bringing a date as well as bringing a family. The noise level is just about right where if you have a date you can have lovely conversation an have the background noise cover up any of the awkward moments. They have a variety of different Japanese beers and wines and I really enjoyed the presentation of their Maki's.
