After several complaints by other reviewers on TripAdvisor concerning the service, the management seems to have taken note because frankly, we found the service here absolutely amazing.

Food wise it's a sushi train so really it's for the experience and the concept more than the food itself. The choices on offer were no more or less than what one would expect from a sushi place. The key is to order the warm dishes (tempura, gyoza, yakitori) so they come to you warm. Sushi and salad revolving at room temperature is not a problem. If we saw something on the menu not on the conveyor belt we simply had to order it and the waitresses were very attentive, polite and prompt.

The dessert gyoza was a nice surprise to end the meal. We had fun and ate well.

I have been to Matsuri a few times over the past years when in Lyon and I have always been very pleased until tonight...
We were eating when we saw a mouse. All doors were closed and the mouse clearly came from the inside of the restaurant. The staff didn't seem to be alarmed whatsoever and we had to request them to remove it. They nearly acted like we were making a fuss (over a mouse!!!). No apologies or even money off the meal were offered.
Overall not a good experience. I won't return and won't recommend ever again the place.

Food wise ok, nothing spectacular. Nice atmosphere and fun to sit and watch the plates passing by. Quick way to have a good meal and very affordable.

I am a client of the Matsuri since ever, even I went there before it was a Matsuri one....I remember the japanese owner at that time preparing herself the dished in front of you...since then Matsuri team changed many times and I am impressed about the continous quality of their dishes, the very friendly and good service, if you like sushi bar this one is a nice place to go to in Lyon

Staff friendly but not very attentive. Often spend minutes trying to attract their attention as they don't look around them. Food is good but only the most popular items on the conveyor belt so regularly have to ask staff for other dishes which defeats the purpose of this concept. Wine choice is bad. Dodgy Chardonnay by the glass or a bottle of overpriced Chablis. Will still go back as the kids love it and the food is good
