MATSU - Yas Links - Japanese Food 4/5 Service 4/5 Price 3/5 Ambience 3/5
Date night with hubby saw us try the newly opened MATSU at Yas Links. Decor was traditionally minimalistic, food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.
The Japanese chefs at the sushi bar greet all the diners and were clearly experts at their craft. Hubby said his sushi was probably among the best he’d ever tasted anywhere.
My main of thinly sliced marinaded beef (served with rice, Japanese pickles and miso) was superb. Hubby’s teriyaki amberjack fish main was very tasty but overshadowed by both my beef and the sushi.
You can either sit and eat at the small bar area watching the sushi chefs at work or at a table. The bar area was full when we went. There were only 3 other tables occupied when we were there.
My only gripe would be the price (or lack of any discount currently). Service was welcoming and attentive (a plethora of waiting staff) and we would definitely return.
