Overall great sushi

I really enjoyed it. We ordered 3 different rolls and some Sashimi for a group of 4 people and everything was prepared well. The service was great and the sushi was high quality.

Must try

I have visited the restaurant many times. Since the first time a friend wanted to introduce me to Peterborough (I loved the meal) I have brought other friends and my parents. My dad's first sushi meal was here and he still talks about it (1.5 years later). The food is clean, fresh and excellent. Take out or eat in - the staff are wonderful. I've always ordered the Kawartha Sushi boat but everything else is deliscious. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Great Atmosphere and Food!

Selection is broad, little extras show that Mr. Kim and his staff value their customers. We came with sushi pros, and rookies - all were made to feel comfortable and satisfied and loving the idea of our next Matsu visit. East City is the nicest part of Peterborough!

Always fantastic

The Ottawa roll is hands down my favourite. Order it every visit. After trying most other sushi restaurants in town, none measure up to Matsu. I will not even consider anywhere else. You get what you pay for and then some.

Best Sushi in Town

I discovered this hidden gem when I moved to the Peterborough County 5 yrs ago and have been dining @ Matsu Sushi on Park St once a month on average. I love Sushi & previously lived in Toronto where there are over 500 sushi restaurants, so I'm happy to have found Matsu Sushi. Everything they serve is always fresh! They use top quality sushi rice that's consistently cooked perfectly... not too soft nor too hard. Every tempura is scrumptious with just the right amount of batter & so skillfully deep fried at the right temperature. Here is where I've tasted the best miso soup... always just right, nothing too powerful. Their bento box lunches & dinners are great buys with fresh, crispy salad, a scoop of rice, an extra dish added to your main course plus the miso soup & free appetizer. At the end of your meal they give you an orange that is always nicely cut & presented. Matsu Sushi on Park St is always clean & bright. I love the simple decor - pine wood cubicles with cotton panels printed with Geisha image. The owners welcome every customer warmly & sincerely as they also thank you & bid you goodbye when you leave. As a sushi connoiseur, I try every sushi place I find in the area but none in Peterborough has equaled Matsu Sushi on Park St for scrumptious, fresh sushi.

Favorite resto in Peterborough!

Matsu is unmatched. I don't get how you could prefer the dingy atmosphere at hoshi or the park st location to Matsu. There's no comparison. The food at park st. is also noticibly sloppier. The rice here is always fresh, fish is always at a good temperature, and there are nice little variations on the menu from time to time to keep things interesting. The atmosphere in east city is fantastic. It's fresh and light, I love being greeted by Mr. Kim, the music is nice, it's cozy, the plates are really interesting. It's the yardstick experience for any other restaurant to match.

Worst Experience

Worst Experience. When ordering my meal I pointed to an appetizer and said I would like this served as my main meal (in hopes it would come at the same time as my boyfriends) because I wasn't very hungry. Apparently ordering it so it will come later costs more money because they charged us an extra $6.00. Their excuse was that they misunderstood us and that it was our fault for not knowing it was too big of a portion. This would make sense if we had eaten there before, or maybe any korean restaurant, but regardless they were at fault and could of had at least apologized or charged us for the meal intended. After disguising it with the waiter and owner they told us to sit down and wait for an answer, but they never returned. We went up to pay for our overcharged bill and we waited 10 minutes for someone to give us service so we could leave. Overall the food wasn't very good, service was very poor (very bad communication on the restaurants side), and I found that they should of shown more respect to customers. Thanks for listening.

Love it

Good food, nice place I do however feel a bit embarassed by the loud greeting you get when you come in and when you leave. We are after all Canadians!! My husband won't even go back due to this. Lucky for me my friends will.

HELLO

Quite frankly i find the owner yelling at you every-time annoying, I used to go there quite often but i am just annoyed at how I am yelled at every-time I enter and every-time I leave. The sushi is fresh and good, but the maki rolls, would not be the best in town, Hoshi's sushi plates are much more professional and beautiful and yummy. Matsu is also more expensive then other places around. The service is attentive for the most part. I would return is a friend wanted to go, but it would not be my first sushi pick in Peterborough

Top Quality Japanese Food

This was the first Japanese restaurant I had ever eaten in, and it paved the way for my love of all japanese food (except green tea ice cream)

Original Location

Agree with the previous review, people tend to forget about this location as Mr. Kim moved his business to Hunter. Even though Mr. Kim is friendlier but this does not mean they have better food and service and it's kinda disturbing sometimes. This location certainly offers quieter and relaxing atmosphere and the service is definitely better. We all know the one on Hunter is always packed and busy. Even though this is a good sign but does not do any better if you are looking for a spot to relax. As for the food, i personally think park street did a better job. The sushi rice is much softer and smells better. Hunter's is much harder and flavourless. Rice matters alot in making a good sushi.

Amazing

The original Matsu Sushi on Park Street often gets overlooked since Mr. Kim of the Hunter Street location took many of his loyal customers with him. However, I prefer the Park Street location because it's not as busy, the service is better, and when you are greeted upon entering it is not such a spectacle. Now about the food... the menus for Park and Hunter are basically the same, but Park Street has some items that Hunter doesn't have, and vice versa. One item that Park Street has is the crunch roll which is AMAZING. It is basically a tempura shrimp and cucumber roll that has been rolled in panko bread crumbs so, as its name suggests, it is nice and crunchy. I also find the portion sizes to be larger at Park Street. My green dragon roll was almost twice the size of the one I would get at Hunter Street. If you're looking for high quality, fresh Japanese food in a quiet location, Matsu on Park Street is worth visiting.

Good Food

Yes, they greet you effusively as you walk in the door -- this is their trademark. I ordered some food for takeout and as I waited, the staff brought me one of their oranges to eat - this was nice. The food was really good and I definitely will go back.
