Good food and value for money

I went there for lunch and ordered Kurobuta pork neck Don. It was a big portion size and served with pickled vegetable. I found it really worth the 13.80 dollars.

Really enjoyed having some light, fresh sushi before we popped into the Capitol Theatre to watch a show. The head waiter arranged our food straight away so that we wouldn't miss the first few minutes of the show. Nice touch!

Very good, wish I'd had more time to explore the other dishes. Cocktails are a bit too sweet, probably to match the dishes. Tidy presentation and service.

Great japanese restaurant in the center of Sydney. The varieties in the assortment of nigiri sushi are many and flawless, the tempura is balanced, tonkatsu pork loin is tasty and filling. The service is friendly and the value for money is good. The most of asian customers try the hot pot: to be recommended for those who want to get... More

My wife and I went there for dinner on a Monday night. It located at the basement, and there was no clear sign at the stairs leading to the restaurant. Even though it is Monday night, the restaurant was quite full. It is suggested to make prior reservation in order to avoid waiting. We tried the hotpot and sushi. Both... More

We have been going back Masuya many times over past five years. The quality of the food has always been good and consistent. The menu has a variety of choices. The special sashimi platter was fresh and delicious. The deep fry Hokkaido scallops is my favourite dish. It has always crispy yet tender and juicy inside. In terms of service... More

Japanese food is in abundance in Sydney, and while my previous evening's dinner at Shiki was excellent albeit fairly expensive, lunch at Masuya was at the other end of the scale on both counts. Actually that's not strictly accurate as spending the best part of 40 bucks on a bento box and glass of iced green tea probably isn't the... More
