When at a Japanese restaurant, you first start with all the things that you are familiar with. For me that is sushi and I always zero in on the platter. More bang for buck and the ability to order the next round of what I like in a larger quantity. So the platter here has the red snapper, tuna, prawn, egg and salmon. One of the few places that does not throw in a cucumber or avocado roll into a seafood platter. Moving to something less tried – the 'Okuro no wasabi ae' – diced okra in a wasabi flavoured dashi broth. Since this retains a lot of the stickiness of the vegetable, it can take some getting used to. Opt for the set meals here which is a trayful of various little dishes and your choice of meat or seafood. You get sticky rice, miso soup, pickled vegetables, some seaweed and dried fish. Along with that a mayo salad, your meat or fish and some dark soy sauce. Try the 'Crumb Fried Pork' option. It is a good one. There are some interesting options for vegetarians, the 'Salad Maki' being thickly rolled sushi with julienned vegetables. The bowl meals are good choices too. If you like Sashimi, then the 'Tekka Don, with 'Sushi Rice, Sliced Raw Tuna, along with Miso Soup, Soy and Pickled Veggies' is great. Another version is the 'Oyako Don' – rice with stewed chicken. And for desserts, you can choose to have the 'Egg Pudding' (which is not eggy if that is what you are worried about) and the 'Wasabi Icecream' are nice.
Matsuri is one of the finest places for Japanese cuisine in Bangalore. Situated in The Chancery Pavilion, the number of Japanese expats eating there is a testimony to the authentic taste/cuisine served. From the basic miso soup to sushi, steak to teriyaki - everything is so divine. Loved the experience and have decided to stay at the hotel itself during my next trip to Bangalore in March 🙂
Food - 4.5/5 Authenticity- 5/5 Ambience- 4.5/5 Service -4.5/5 ( Good knowledge of food and drink) Price - 4/5 ( Would pinch you a bit, but for the authenticity I guess it's worth) Hygiene- 4.5/5 ( They have a motorised commode which was interesting :P . It's actually much popular in Japan) Parking - 5/5 ( Has valet parking and otherwise sufficient parking space as situated inside Chancery hotel) Fire Safety- Could not visibly find alternate exit route. Restaurant is located in ground floor however. Our journey started with blanched okra or "Okura No Wasabi Ae". This dish seems to be a Japanese delicacy but as I said in the beginning there were many dishes which we are not very much used to having and maybe because of that we could not much relish or savour them. Well few of them and this was one of them. It was one of the most simple dish that was prepared. Okra or ladies finger where finally cut and tossed and some sauce and then served with a small serving of wasabi. Mainly because it was bit gooey we didn't like it much. 🥚🥚 We moved on to "Dashimaki Tamago" or slieced, rolled omelette. I am not perfectly sure about the preparation but it was a simple egg omelette made in a really different way. The omelette pieces where cut into 1 square inch and put on top of another and made into a cube which held together. It was big sweetish and little tangy in taste. 🥗🥗 We were supposed to have the omelette with blanched crackling spinach. Again here also there was a peculiarity and uniqueness of preparation which I found very rare and had for the first time. Omelette and spinach combo went perfectly well and we relished it. 🍖🍖 "Nikujaga" or stewed beef and baby potato on sweetened soya sauce was great it seems. My friends really liked it. As I don't eat beef, can't really tell much of first hand experience. 🍗🍗 "Tori No KaraAge" the Japanese style fried chicken was very much like the KFC chicken that we get only with the touch of tamarind. Southeast Asian countries are very much habituated in having dry chicken with white rice, specifically white sticky rice with some sauce and this chicken would have really gone very well with that palette. But I would not rate high among the other excellent stuff that we had. 🍴🍴 "Ika No KaraAge" was squid fry on above similar lines. Very dry and but specifically for a particular palette. 🥔🥔 "Fried potatoes" was decent and crunchy. Went perfectly with the light vodka cocktails that came in. 🍤🍤 "Tempura No Moriawase" the authentic batter fried tempura prawn was amazing. I could very well distinguish from the prawn tempura that I used to have in Chinese restaurants from one that was served here. Tempura batter was unadulterated and the coating was very thin and you could feel the prawn right on your tongue once you take the bite. The watery sauce served along was tangy and sweet and went perfectly well with the prawn tempura. 🍣🍣 "Sushi" is not something which is my cup of tea but still I tried the veg varieties and good taste the Seaweed being very fresh and the rice which was put in was right in quantity quality and wrapped really nice. My friends liked the Salman sushi and the tuna Sushi and it seems the fish where very fresh and very nicely cut. 🍗🍗 "Teppan Teri Yaki chicken" , the subtle fried chicken preparation in soya sauce was done very well too. The sauce / gravy was not too strong not too watery and went very well with noodle that came in. 🍝🍝 "Yakisoba" , the vegetable stir fried noodles with brown sauce was a great preparation which went very along the chicken dish with soya sauce. The noodle has some specific Japanese elements which made the whole lot of difference. 🐟🐟 "Yakizakana Teriyaki" or fish cooked in soya sauce was amazing to have as well. The basa fish used was fresh like anything and made deluctably too. "Japanese steam rice with chicken" was a bento box concept small bowl of rice and chicken. It was almost like soul food. The rice was so relaxing. The taste was so very nice. Chicken gravy was smooth and not too strong and very pleasing to have. The rice is it seems is procured from Japan. "Buta no Shogayaki" or Japanese ginger pork and "Gyu Steak" or Beef steak was good it seems, but I however don't eat them. So sorry about that. 🍨🥞 "Doriyaki Pan cake with ice cream" was something which you don't eat everyday. It was served with bean sauce. Yea, bean sauce and the whole bean, the sweet sauce, pan cake and ice cream came together in a unique chord of its own. It was just like magic. Our experience ended with a cup of matcha tea which was again something I had for first time and found it amazingly refreshing. Though each of the food was good to excellent, what stands apart for this place is the authenticity in its dishes. And they use all items procured from Japan mostly. The preparation, Ambience , the service all together comes into a great experience of its own. This creates a lingering effect. Though honestly I am not a expert of Japanese food, I really loved the experience and the feeling.
A Japanese restaurant owned by a Japanese hotel serving up a truly authentic experience, Matsuri is a place perfect for those seeking immersion into Japan flavours. Just order Sushi Moriawase (Special mixed sushi platter), Gyu Steak (Beef steak), Yakizakana Teriyaki (Grilled fish with sweetened soya sauce) with some good wine or Asahi (Japanese Beer) and your evening is sorted 😍 💁🏻♀️Vegetarians you can skip this place ( very less veg options) 💁🏻 . Detailed Review: •Where??🛣 Nestled in Hotel Chancery, the ambience of this restaurant is simple and unobtrusive. Their use of wood in its many forms lends to a minimalist atmosphere leaving all the attention on the food, true to their motto of “eating with your eyes”. •Famous For??✨ 1. Classic Japanese Flavours 2. Extensive cocktail varieties 💁🏻Love that they offer a range of traditional Japanese dishes that go beyond just sushi. Think Udon noodles and Japanese curries. This carefully-crafted menu has a big selection of dishes to choose from, so don’t be afraid to ask your server for some help. •Kick-starting with Starters🤤 1. Tori no Karaage: chicken crumb fried in potato starch which is as succulent as it is crispy. Must Must Have. 2. Tempura no Moriawase: batter fried prawns with vegetables. The tempura’s light batter and crispness were perfect on the palate. But as taste is subjective, my other friends didn’t like it much. So u can skip ordering this. 3. Ika no Karaage: basically it’s fried squid rings. It was very oily and greasy. 4. Dashimaki Tamago: Another dish which took my tongue to wonderland. It is a sliced sweetened rolled omlette which was so smooth, creamy. Melts in your mouth kinda feeling you get. 5. Nikujaga: Stewed beef & potato in sweetened soya sauce. If you don’t have sweet palate, do not order. The portions of beef is also less in the stew, but the quality of beef used in this restaurant is Next Level. #Impressed 6. Sushi Moriawase: special mixed sushi platter. Heaven on a plate, creamy, smooth, fresh, yet slightly crunchy with oodles of flavour bombs, textures and absolutely divine yumminess embedded in every gobble of #sushi. 🍣🍤🍱 •Time to dig in to real deal: Main Course🍛🍲 1. Gyu Steak and 2. Yakizakana Teriyaki : I vouch all my foodie experience over these 2 absolutely delish dishes. Totally won my heart and made me order for more even though I was so fullllll. 3. Chicken Nanban: It’s a decent choice to order if you don’t eat beef or pork. But I found it mediocre, nothing great. 4. Noodles: Order any and they will not fail you. My personal favourite Teppan Yaki Udon 🍜 •Sweet-toothed Followers, Dessert Time I was so full that I couldn’t try the dessert. Will update on my next visit because I am surely revisiting. But I have heard their wasabi ice cream is worth trying. •Serve Serve Serve The staff here knows the Japanese customs well and is soft spoken. Kudos to the team for a great experience. •TummyTumms Scoreboard Taste: 4.2/5 Ambience: 3.8/5 Service: 4/5 Value For Money: 4.2/5
I had gone their last year. They have a tie up with Toyota and it shows. Japanese tradition followed to a T. Food is amazing with simple flavors. It's like eating Zen
Quite ambience, great service and excellent food would be the way I would sum up this great Japanese restaurant at chancellory hotel. The entrance to the hotel is a lil ahead of the reception but you get the benefit of a concierge, the passage is beautifully lit with lamps in bottles and the seating is not overboard but chic and elegant. Our table was service by Aliba who was a great hostess. We ordered the kappa (cucumber) and the smoked salmon maki and it was delicious coupled with some fresh wasabi. The ebi tempura, chicken teriyaki were great too. The good part was that we also got some nice pork dimsums which we enjoyed with the rest of the meal. Totally recommend the place and will visit again. It’s not a economical/ value for money kind of place but great for a semi formal or casual fine dine experience with family.
