We have been going here for many years and must say this was the worst. We order the same thing when we are here so we know what it should be, so we ordered our Sera Maki, it has grilled chicken and asparagus . When it came to our table it had avocado and chicken. I told our waitress it... More

Again I can't give such places as this mom and pop and daughter lunch place a 5 star but it was good...5 stars are reserved for nicer upscale places but the food was terrific...Service as quick...Price were good...The place needed some redecorating and is in a safeway shopping center on Contra Costa Blvd but again it was good for lunch...

I personally feel the price is slightly high for what they offer for lunch. My son ordered the lunch combo for $11.95 and it was smaller than I expected. The teriyaki beef was flavored and the crispy ca roll looked good. The Godzilla roll looked a little weathered,but, the kids ate it up. No salad with the lunch, which I'm... More

This is our favorite "go to" sushi house in Pleasant Hill where I live. Always good food, but sometimes a bit crowded with other fans. Chefs have been there for years, food quality is consistent. A caring environment, service is tops.

When ever I am in need of a good sushi fix I head over to Pleasant Hill to Matsu Sushi. It is a modest little place where they greet you as you enter, and the warm enticing smell of fresh sushi envelopes you. I usually order nigiri or sashimi sushi which is bought at the fish market in San Franciso... More

The quality of the fish is top tier. Cooked fish such as eel and octopus is to perfection. Service is friendly and having vodka cocktails is a plus.

Sushi is outstanding..ask for the volcano, spicey crunchy crab or the honeymoon...they make their own tempura batter...very light and just perfect. Their bento boxes are also outstanding.

Stopped in here as I was walking near my hotel looking for a place to eat dinner. A very nice surprise for being in a little strip mall. Great sushi/maki, and the service was excellent. The staff seemed to know many of the people who came in, so I'm guessing they have quite a local following.
