A word from Matuba Japanese Restaurant
Ira-shai Mase! This Japanese phrase of welcoming represents the friendly and casual atmosphere that we provide at Matuba. You can enjoy affordable traditional Japanese cuisine at one of our two sushi bars or a table in our dining area. So come out for a great meal at Matuba.

Diner Reviews
  • "Ordered spicy tuna donburi which would have been great if it wasn't as salty as it was prepared. The miso soup was also salty, and edemame beans seemed to not be so fresh, which kinda ruined the overall dining experience. Otherwise, had satisfactory service from an attentive server and restaurant was clean as it always is."

  • "Matuba continues to be one of the best sushi restaurants in the Metro area. Its consistently high quality food and service makes this an area classic. This is a restaurant at which you will never be disappointed."

  • "haven't been there in a couple months/year and as always.. food was good to great, service, excellent. I like sashimi, fresh fish, and not any smell from it. Nice and bright colors... friend has the spicy lobster roll, (she wanted more spicy) a chinese thing. LOL.. overall, enjoyed the dinner."

  • "For years I have dined at Matuba Japanese Restaurant and have appreciated the consistently excellent food and the service that is always attentive. The sushi and authentic Japanese dishes are delicious and well prepared. The restaurant is small and can get crowded at peak dining times; however the ambience is comfortable and the noise level acceptable (especially in comparison to many other restaurants in Bethesda)."

  • "Food was fine. Took forever to get our food because a waiter from another table took our food before our server could get to it. Consequently, we had to wait while the kitchen prepared another order. Otherwise fine and inexpensive."

  • "The tasty and well prepared food, sushi and tempura that was ordered, is the reason for choosing this restaurant. Architecture and ambiance are less than appealing, especially for a Japanese touch."

  • "Everyone was very friendly from the moment we walked in the door, the sushi was spot on, and the place had a lot of character. It had a small business/ family owned feel, with great food and personality, which I will always support when I find a place worth while. We will definitely be making a trip back soon."
