Great food, great service, love the atmosphere. Server Raul is a funny guy! Try the sweet potato roll!
Fresh food and great service. You will not be disappointed!!
Bad food, even worse service. Will never return.We just left this place and it was a terrible experience. The waiter was awful, he didn't even take our drink order until we ordered our food. He brought one dish out quite a while before the other. The pad Thai was the worst I have ever had. It was slimy and had a fishy aftertaste. I took one bite and sat it on the edge of the table waiting for the server to come back so I could send it back for something else. He never came back to check on us. We shared my husbands dish instead. So when he finally returned I said I didn't like the pad Thai and he took it without saying a word. I assumed he would remove it from the bill. He didn't. When I asked him to remove it, he said I can't remove it because you ate it. WHAT?! I took ONE bite. Ridiculous. Terrible food and even worse service. Oh, and not to mention the dried food stuck to my drink cup which I just let go. STAY AWAY!
I decided to stop in the Ai Sushi for lunch while I was in Tampa this past week. The food was awesome but could not get past the atmosphere that was dirty and had signs everywhere with rules to follow. It was not exactly what I was expecting for the neighborhood it is located.
Horrible, slow service. Server gave us a small jug of water to fill ourselves. Food took 30+ minutes to come. Food was not good. Will not be back.
Omg, if you have an hour and a half you might still want to stay away from this place.. The service does not deserve to be called service, rude and slow. We live close so I have been there a few times and every time I say Never again.. But the last straw was a call in order. Ordered 4 orders of sushi, they said 15 min,, ok I finished waiting two and a half men, then headed to Walgreens before going to Yoshi .. When I got there, nearly 30 min after I placed the order, I walked in and stood by the cash register for about 5 min as people walked paced never even acknowledged me.. So I accidentally dropped a picture off the desk and suddenly ,will be right with you,,, I sat and waited 10 more minutes, and there were only 6 other people in the placeFriday night,, and they were all on one table.. Finally I'm handed a bag,, but only 3 orders were in it,, then she tells me a few more min it will be right up..5 minutes later the last order is handed to me. The only reason I waited was to bring my son some sushi as a reward for two A's he got in school.. The sushi is average at best the prices are as much as sushi alive, and the service is terrable terrable, I have not been back since, and I will never step foot in there again
Used to go there a couple times a month. Then it started to get too busy,. The sushi is very very good.. We started to patronize again it's not as busy as it used to be and the service is a little slower, but the sushi is still very good.
it is one of the best Japanese restaurants ib tampa area, really fresh food and made with love, I 100% recommend this Matoi Sushi Restaurant to people that like to get the good food for the price, believe it is wonderful try and yo will not be disappoint Thanks Matoi
DON'T BOTHER GOING HERE. A month ago we went with our kids to dinner and we were not impressed. Yesterday it was Thanksgiving and we were eating out for the day with two other couples that wanted to try this place. We ordered there Thanksgivining dinner special.The food was simple terrible. When the food came to our table my food wasn't hot, it wasn't even warm, it was COLD. I sent it back and they brought me a new dish. I started eating the food and I couldn't believe how bad it was. I had better food out of a can then what was served to me. The only thing that was good was the Pumpkin soup that came with the meal. Save your money, a hamburger from McDonald's would have been better then the food that was served to us. I will never give a dime to this place again. Next year we will have Thanksgiving dinner at home.
Place doesn't "look" fabulous but the Food is! Especially the Pad Thai! Best in Tampa. I will drive for miles for it.
