Matsuri - Surry Hills

This post is long overdue.

Looking for a place to grab a a bite after uni, my partner and I had initially wanted to visit Sushi Suma (which as the name suggests - has giant portions for reasonable prices). However, as my partner had a plane to catch, we could not wait for it to open. As such, we opted for Japanese Takeaway - Matsuri in Surry Hills. (again - this was an unexpected meal - and hence, my phone was responsible for the photos)

Matsuri - takeaway

Matsuri had recently (maybe a year ago) opened a restaurant just next door - but we chose the quicker takeaway option.

My partner chose the terriyaki chicken box set (sorry, it was so long ago, I don't remember the price >.<) which comprised of terriyaki chicken rice, 2 types of salad (very yummy), avocado and cucumber rolls, and tuna and salmon sashimi. I recall that it was quite decent for takeaway food, and quite big and filling.

We also ordered my favourite - seaweed salad, a the potato salad. Both were quite satisfying.

I think that the only disappointing aspect on the day was that I always thought the takeaway joint was owned by Japanese people (and I swear - on our previous visits, they were talking in Japanese) but this time, the workers were speaking fluent Mandarin. That just takes away the authenticness of the Jap food :(

Nonetheless, it was a good quick feed. The prices are reasonable, the food is not bad, and since it's a takeaway joint (although we ate in), the service doesn't really matter.

Food - 7/10

Ambiance - 6/10
Value for money - 8/10
Overall - 21 + ? /40

Matsuri is great, although the restaurant has been open for as long as i have been going there and that's about 5 years at least.
