Shams Gymnastics Restaurant Partner MATSU Portfolio

MATSU Restaurant is derived from the Japanese owner’s family name MATSUTANI.

MATSU or “Pine Tree” in English is an evergreen conifer. A valuable timber and also grown ornamentally in Japan. In local folklore, it is believed to be the secret of perennial youth and long life.

Since arriving in the UAE in 1994, Matsutani san could not find an authentic Japanese restaurant that provides real Japanese taste, atmosphere and service.  Most restaurants that were present are infused with different Asian or western cuisine. Japanese people travelling around the world cannot live without the taste of their own food.

Matsutani san comes from a family who loves to cook. On an amateur level, family members often compete in the kitchen and each one has its own speciality. The wife’s family is an expert in making authentic soba, and her brother is a Chef.

Matsutani san was inspired to convey to the UAE what is real and authentic Japanese fine dining. As a result, he decided to raise the bar in in Abu Dhabi and hence Matsu was born.

MATSU signature focuses on fine Japanese dining and is the best place for authentic sushi. Providing an authentic Japanese cuisine and service in an exceptional atmosphere capturing the real spirit of Japanese dining culture with an elegant appeal. Located in YAS Links Abu Dhabi.

Matsu is divided into a Main dining area, a cozy sushi counter, a tempura live station, private dining room for VIP’s, outdoor dining and a bar area where one can spend time for a nice aperitif, an after dining recap of excellent digestives or just simply hang out and enjoy great views, atmosphere and nice people with a glass of wine or beer or one of our signature cocktails and mocktails.
