In Japanese “Matsuri” means festival, and it's probably fair to state that this restaurant is a celebration of Japanese cuisine. To the Japanese, eating is more than appeasing your appetite; how a dish looks is as important as how it tastes. You’ll be greeted by a symbol of Japanese festivals,… Nebuta, dominating the stairway leading from the bar to the softly-lit subterranean dining area. Ranging from good-value lunch sets to favourite Teppan-yaki courses, Matsuri and Taiko, Matsuri’s menu offers the best traditional flavours of sushi in the capital with the modern tastes of Teppan-yaki, all presented with precision. Managed and staffed entirely by affable Orientals with slick service, this is as authentic a Japanese dining experience as you're likely to enjoy in London. Perfect choice for special occasions with your family and friends as well as business meeting. In addition to the main restaurant (Teppan-yaki area), Matsuri offers a sushi bar and two private dining rooms.
