Matsuri first opened in Federal Hill back in 1996 as a culmination concept of Bill Tien's vision for Japanese cuisine in the city of Baltimore.

Since then, the restaurant has gone on to win countless awards and is consistently voted as one of the best Japanese Restaurants in the state. Today, Matsuri is frequented by Baltimore's various sports celebrities as well as visiting filmmakers and political figures.

From gyoza and dumplings to sautéed noodles, everything on Matsuri's menu is authentic and delicious but popular favorites include the spicy scallop roll and the kitty roll–a specialty roll containing spicy salmon and avocado wrapped in pink soy paper and topped with super white tuna and spicy mayo.
