    Beef noodle soup, salmon crunch, arctic char sashimi

    Atmosphere feels like a mall restaurant. Sushi was solid. Some of the cocktails are made in large batches so ask first. Overall, it's good but doesn't deserve the 9+ rating on Foursquare.

    Get saki at 98 degrees, how it's meant to be consumed. Crunchy salmon & firecracker are good picks

    Are you a vegetarian...try the steamed buns with agadashi tofu not on menu & miso corn or a custom roll. Edamame with smoked sea salt is very good.

    Pork belly ramen and tonkotsu curry ramen were good. Sake sashimi was amazing. The only comment is that the edamame should've been steamed/boiled longer cuz the texture is a bit hard.

    Fantastic fresh rolls, traditional or creative, but the best thing is the variety. There's Izakaya, noodles, mochi ice cream, and deadly good bacon wrapped quail eggs. Do the happy hour for values.

    Masu is the first restaurant in the area to offer sustainably sourced sushi, so instead of the typical tuna, the kitchen offers several fish less seen on sushi menus but well worth discovering. Read more

    They have Panchinko. They. Have. Panchinko! Malu roll was a really fun taste experience - you can't go wrong with a Firecracker roll or Masu roll. Service slow when busy, but relax and converse :)

    Masu is considered one of the best spots for sushi, but don't stop there. The menu also includes izakaya (Japanese bar snacks), all sorts of noodles (soba, udon, ramen), and sake flights.

    Not bad sushi. The firecracker roll is zesty, but isn't ungodly spicy. As far as quality, I'd say it's not as far up as Fuji Ya.
