Absolutely love it here! The owner is always so friendly and they usually have plenty of business. Never once ordered something here that I wasn't satisfied with!

I have been here several times for lunch. Since I don't eat raw fish, I usually go for a bento box lunch special. For $10.95, you got miso soup, salad, and a bento box with the meat of your choice. There were so much food that I never …

There is no better Asian cuisine in the Monmouth county than Matata. The menu is filled with a wide palette of choices. There is food from so many different cultures, such as Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese. Each which are all packed with flavor. It may be hard to find at first but once you find it its very easy to find. Matata has a nice modern theme. The flooring is a dark wood with the matching color tables. The seats and booths also perfectly match with the tables. The place is very clean and has enough room to be comfortable. In the background a soft music which is just at the right volume and is very soothing. When you first enter Matata you are greeted with a smile and a “how are you today”. The hostess is very polite and shows you your table. Then a waitress comes. Throughout the whole dinner the waitress doesn't barge in to your meal too much, but she still comes in in a comfortable way. She is also very polite and is dressed formally. Right when you get your food, it is so well decorated that you don't want to mess it up. Even though it looks pretty it also looks so good. Every time I ordered a dish it tasted amazing. One time I had a snow mountain roll, a spicy girl roll, and other assorted sushi. The sushi was very fresh and the special rolls were even better. The flavors were like a bomb in you mouth. Both of the special rolls had a nice crunchy top. Overall, Matata is a great restaurant that never disappoints. The food is great. The decor is beautiful. And the service is great.

They need to improvise in serving skills and need to have good communication people ( sorry doesn't mean to hurt any one..) language spoken is to understand and also it's tough for then to understand us :( food was good

Excellent food. I have been here for business lunch in the past. When i brought my family here for dinner, they loved the cuisine too. Our favorites were the following-> 1. Rock shrimp with spicy creamy sauce 2. Tom Yum soup (chicken and shrimp) 3. Basil Thai beef/Shrimp with white rice Overall, i would definitely recommend this place to friends.

kara allen

Worst place to order Asian food for take out. Food is terrible sent the order with out plates Soy or mustard or plates. Tom yum soup taste like Tabasco sauce. Really oily tempura and spring rolls ... like old oil . Never again will I eat …

Preston Mohr

Delicious Asian food at a reasonable price. From Thai to Japanese, Matata offers a wide array of entrees! Hands down my family's favorite Asian cuisine in the area-- highly recommended!

Mara Hagan

Delicious as always!

Rick Villanova

I’m done with this place. We’ve ordered from them more than 10 times and 5 of them our order was completely wrong . They will send you the correct food and ask for the incorrect food back.

Beautifully prepared, delicious pan-Asian food. Cuisine of China, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, plus sushi. BYOB a real plus for keeping the price down. We just had a lovely dinner for $24/person with tax and a generous tip.

Excellent steak and sushi. Filet mignon steak is cubed with black pepper or vietnamese style with sauteed vegetables. Fried ice cream is great.

Cam M

The sushi/raw fish is the freshest I've had in the area. Equally as good as an upscale sushi restaurant in Mahattan...and I have been to plenty. The rest of the menu is delicious with a huge variety for choice. The quality is very consistent. The humble exterior of the place hides it's 5 star quality.

At the spur of the moment we decided to take out, and were happy we did. The red curry shrimp (Thai) was excellent and very generous, the Chicken with Basil was also very good. Recommended...we will return (next time to sit down).

This is honestly the worst restaurant experience in my life. With Matata it's either a hit or miss. Half of the time my food is good and then the other half it's poorly made and usually burnt. That isn't even my biggest issue, their customer service is absolutely horrible, they treat their customers very badly. I just got off the phone with Matata's manager after arguing for about 30 minutes. I ordered a bento box but instead was given the "dinner order" because most customers get dinner orders and to next time call instead of order online because the orders are "too long" after getting nowhere I was hung up on despite me saying "wait! hold on!" I call back and continue to try sorting this problem out by her saying "what do you want me to do" repeatedly and me giving her the answer that I'd like the bento box in exchange she would not accept my answer but finally says she'll send out the bento box instead but I would have to wait a couple of hours. Hours later I receive a call from Matata's Manager and she says, I quote "You made mistake, not us." and I responded saying "Great way to treat your customers, I'm never ordering here again." and then she says "No problem!" And hangs up. I called back a bit later asking to speak to the manager (because at that point I was assuming she was just an employee) but she was the manager and said that despite me being wrong she will send me the bento box, I thanked her and calmly explained to her the difference between their online menu and their hard copy, online menu having the bento box option for teriyaki salmon which I ordered on, I even have an online receipt she mid sentence hangs up. Matata ripped me off and did not give me what I payed $20.

DISGUSTING!!!!! Please ignore the other reviews. We WERE regular customers and it constantly got a little worse, but it was the closest and most convenient place for us to go. However today they were not only 2 hours late, they also gave us gross unclean fish, which resulted in FOOD POISONING! And to top it off they were very rude on the phone to us. If you like gross chinese food, order away.

Good Asian restaurant! Not many place down in this area are very good, this is a nice choice. Staff is friendly and many seem to take out from here, we ate in. Haven't tried the sushi yet, but will next time.

Philip Dellin

I`m a big Sushi fan and Matata does Sushi well. They can get busy at times and have me wait a bit before my takeout is ready. I gladly go back about once every ten days.
