The prices seem to be 10% higher than other Japanese restaurants, so I thought it would be higher end, but it turned out to be just average.

We have been going to Masu since 2004 and are enjoying their great food almost weekly. The food selection and quality has always been outstanding. The sushi and sashimi is 100% fresh and well prepared. Masu offers additional delights, such as teriyaki dishes; BBQ (incl. Korean) and a great selection of appetizers. Their service is super friendly and it is... More

This is our go to sushi place. We usually love everything about it, but the food did not seem the same on our last visit. The portions seemed smaller and the fish did not seem as tasty as other visits. Service is always good. We will try again to see if it was an off day for the chef.

We had both Teriyaki as well as sushi. The chicken Teriyaki was awful, just dry chicken with sauce poured over, no specialty here. I then had a deep fried California roll as well as chicken roll which consisted of the same dry chicken with nothing else in it and I am pretty sure there was not crab in my roll.... More

This is a westernized Japanese dining place, but that isn't bad- it just gives you an idea what to expect, lots of sushi rolls, bento boxes, tempuras etc etc. So if you are happy with that mix of "japlish food- and i am a good part of the time- then this is a good dining experience. Happy people at the... More

I don't go to Japanese very often, but this vegetarian menu was impressive. There were around 12 vegetarian choices. I ordered avocado rolls and Miso soup and green tea ice-cream for dessert. The avocado rolls were great with the Wasabe and the pickled ginger. The avocado was perfectly ripe. The tempura was nicely presented and apparently very good as well.... More

I'd give Masu 4 stars for their fresh and creative sushi rolls at fair prices if it weren't for the fact that any time of the day you come in the service is crawlingly slow. It's hard to get drinks, order, get your food, get help, get the check, and get change. Absolutely everything is a long wait. Other than... More
