Established in June 2013, REZtron is a pop-up retrotainment bar & event specialist inspired by the fusion of 80's chic, Japanese Otaku culture and retro games.
When Matsuri restaurant was opened in 1993 in the heart of Mayfair, we introduced not only traditional Japanese food, such as sushi and tempura, but also a new style of Japanese cuisine, Teppan-yaki, aimed at bringing the Japanese eating experience closer to Londoners’ hearts. The name 'Matsuri', which means 'festival' in Japanese, was chosen because Japanese festivals were traditionally linked to harvests and seen as a way of celebrating the best produce in each region.
Matsuri is a joint partnership between Central Japan Railway Company, the major Japanese high speed train operating company, and Kikkoman, the world's most famous soy sauce company.
