Was amazing, everything tasted magnificent. The smell in the air was clearly good food cookin no complaints. The best part was the hibachi bar they have, if you love yamatos there in Gainesville then try it out with all the raw ingredients they offer, they even got the yo ho sauce.

Horrible service!!! I have loved this restaurant for years. My fiancé and I always come atleast twice a month sometimes, often bringing our friends with us. The food is always really good and I've never been sick even though I've heard lots of people mention they have. Today my fiancé and I came in with our roomate and ate like we usually do. As we were eating our server brought a shrimp tray and out it out on the dinner buffet counter that had just started at that moment. A customer started to put the shrimp on her plate and the server started yelling at them "dinner, for dinner." The customer said yes, I paid for a dinner buffet. Again the server yells "dinner" points at the checkout counter and says "pay." The man at the counter said "she paid for dinner." And then the server rolls her eyes, scoffs and walks away. 10 minutes go by and we are talking and eating as usual, everything has gone back to normal. Our server brings out the check which my fiancé handled while I was conversing with our friend. Now I usually handle the tip with cash since he pays for the food, but before I realized that the check was out and being paid for (I was still talking with my friend) the server grabs the check with my fiancés card, points at the tip section that he filled in with $1, yells "tip?" And he said "yes" and I kid you not she yells "one dollar tip?!" At my fiancé and then scoffs and crosses out his 1$ tip. Now at this point I'm furious, I didn't even get the chance to pull my wallet out and give her a cash tip. After that performance she isn't getting any tip from me and we will not be going there ever again. The audacity and rude attitude of this woman cannot go unnoticed, if something isn't done about her this company will go under. I've read several reviews from people being forced to tip or tip shamed at this location. It's not right. I understand some people under tip but she didn't even wait to see if we were going to leave cash as a tip, which I always do!

New China
So I feel it necessary to share an experience a friend & I had while out running errands today with our toddlers. We were all hungry & decided to stop at New China at the Town Center Shopping Plaza on NW 76th Street. Well that was the wrong decision. From the second we waked in, we felt unwelcome. The lady at the counter took it upon herself to try to reprimand our 2 year olds for being fascinated with a fan. Then we placed our order. When we asked how much, we were told for 2 lunch specials the total would be $26.00!!! That was the last straw for us both. We said cancel our order and we walked out. Just wanted to forward others that this place was extremely unfriendly and unwelcoming and then on top of that they have the gall to try to charge $13.00 per lunch meal... absolutely absurd!

I can tell you I have tried and tried to enjoy this place but it consistently just lets me down. The showmanship has gone down hill and don't get me started on the cross contamination! Using utensils to go from raw chicken to cooked vegetables.

A lot of value. Plates bring a solid amount of food for their prices. The food is well cooked and everything. But it is pretty low quality ingredients. It fits the price.

Sushi Matsuri Japanese
Worst dining experinece in gainesville and worst service of all time goes to sushi matsuri. I've never felt so unwelcomed and hostile from a dining experience. If u don't like your food here the will just tell you to bad and charge you 17 dollars a plate.

Well some people in my Family thinks this place is great but for my 1st experience I wasn't very happy. First the phone call to make reservations which are a must was a very abrupt person, then when it came time to eat the presentation was wonderful but the food was not all that fantastic. I got tenderloin and scallops with no flavor , the only thing I did care for was the soup and vegetables. Enjoy if you choose to go.
