I have been coming here for over a decade and it is consistently the best authentic Japanese lunch in the Torrance / South Bay Area for a great price. The hand roll combo with cold soba is amazingly fresh and true to the cuisine.

The restaurant is on the Plaza at the corner of Carson/Western. They have great tempura and their lunch special is amazing. It comes with sushi, noodle soup, tempura and a salad. Very friendly service as well.

Named after the famous baseball player, Matsui is the real deal! Amazing tempura dishes and specials! Try the Matsui Go Go Bowl (named after his jersey number 55) it's a bowl full of tempura fried shrimp, rice and vegetables.
