Sushi Masa has high quality sushi, a nice interior (including hole in the floor tatami booths) and is rarely crowded. The staff is very friendly as well. We do both takeout and dinein. They have some great specials so always check the board on the way in. Drive a little, you wont be disappointed.

I get take-out sushi here regularly, and have also dined in house a handful of times. I find this to be one of the better sushi restaurants in the area for fresh, consistent sushi.

I was a little apprehensive when we pulled up. Place was empty but did not smell fishy (good sign). We sat at the sushi bar where the he chefs were helpful and skilled. Portions are good, everything was fresh, but a little pricey. Suggest the Volcano and Hamachi rolls. Avoid the salmon skin roll.

Had supper at Sushi Masa for the first time tonight. Overall, the service, ambiaces, price charged and food were very good. My California Roll was very disappointing, though, as the "crab" was imitation (the menu said neither crab nor fake crab). I overheard a gal at the nearest table grumbling about fake crab too. My only suggestion: tell people when... More

The staff was attentive, the food was good quality, there was a good selection of both bento type entrees as well as sushi and sashimi, and it was reasonably priced. The décor was good, and the only negative was that it did not have AC and it was a rather warm day (this factor caused us to leave earlier than... More

Sushi Masa has been a staple in the San Jose area for many years. It's always been a go-to restaurant when we couldn't think of some place else to eat! It changed hands three years ago, and oftentimes when that happens, so does the product and service. That is not the case. Sushi Masa has maintained its high standard of... More

Ok, to be honest, none of us eat raw sushi's or sashimi. The most adventurous we've gotten is just California roll. However, we have brought sushi eating friends and they loved the place. We love the bento boxes, their tempuras and teriyaki dishes. They have an awesome dessert too. Fried tempura and green tea ice cream. It's something like cake/pound... More

I love eating here. I usually take my coworkers, friends and family here to enjoy a great japanese meal. The sushi is fresh, the combination dinners have very big portions to keep you feeling full. Make sure you leave some room for dessert though, the tempura ice cream is awesome here! I love coming here. The atmosphere is quiet and... More
