I heard a lot of good comments about this restaurant before trying. I knew it's expensive and I was willing to pay for quality. However, the food, the service, and the environment were disappointing. Firstly, the restaurant locates in the basement floor. It's small and the chairs aren't comfortable at all. With the amount of money you pay, you would... More

I had dinner at Masuya recently with a colleague. We were having a drink after work and decided on some Japanese. Conveniently, Masuya was about thirty yards away. We ordered a range of sashimi followed by tempura and soft shell crab. The sashimi was really superb. It was really fresh and served at the perfect temperature. I am having trouble... More

One my favourite spot to have lunch or dinner. The sashimi is so fresh and their bento never disappoint you. A bit on the expensive side but good quality food.

It was a fabulous place to come and eat,the waitress was very friendly. My only fault would be how confusing it was to get to the rest room. It was literally in another restaurant.

This is a must do on my list whenever I'm in Sydney. The hotpots are the star attraction. Try the Masuya hotpot, you won't regret it. The desserts are excellent too.

I have been visiting Masuya for almost 20 years and it has always provided the freshest Japanese seafood. It's popularity is a testament to its good quality and excellent value - it is always packed at lunchtimes and I would highly recommend booking. This high turnover guarantees the freshness of the seafood - important when you are eating raw fish.... More

Love this restaurant! Lunch menu is different to dinner menu. Love the soft shelled crab, only available evenings. Fresh, delicious, great sized servings .... And the price is fantastic, especially for Japanese!! I have scored a table without booking but booking definitely recommended. Always a great treat with wonderful service as well.
