Masuya is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Sydney. Especially the choice of sakes is amazing. The sashimi is a pure feast, I would recommend sea-urchin and toro which are delicious over here. A reservation is needed as it is quite busy. Prices are good, considering the quality of the food.

Went to Masuya for an anniversary dinner, been going here for sometime now. As always the food and service is always predictably great. We have nearly tried everything on the menu and there has not been one disappointment. Would recommend this place to anyone who loves great Japanese food.

A great place for a quick business lunch, great menu and fantastic quality of fish and produce. Sashimi boat is always a favourite. Make sure an book as it fills up at lunch. Ayako, one of the managers is both attentitve and unobtrusive, a truly pleasurbale dining experience tucked away in the cbd

Perfectly located right next to the Capitol theatre, plenty of choices on the menu for everyone. We came here for a pre-theatre meal (the staff did ask if we were going to the theatre later), the service is super quick and efficient . Sushimi and miso were great, but shushi scallop and veg tempura I felt were undercooked ( the... More

This place has been going for 20 odd years. They do fantastic sushi and cooked food. I have eaten here dozens of times and always walk away satisfied. Can't wait to go back again. An authentic Japanese meal.

Try the Wakame Oyster served with wakame seaweed, salmon caviar & traditional Japanese vinaigrette, and then try the Tempura Oyster lightly battered and cooked in pure soy bean oil & sprinkled with curry sea salt. We went for Kingfish Carpaccio thinly sliced kingfish, pickled cucumber with yuzu dashi ponzu & a touch of olive oil--Extremely good. The Tempura Seafood, assorted... More

Nice play for a quick work/business lunch. It's clean and quite spacious. Delicious food for a reasonable price. Service is good, food was served pretty quick after ordering. I'll go back.

The lunch at Masuya was excellent. With personal service from our waiter who introduced themselves by name through to the selection of 'a al carte' dishes and bento it was hard to fault the experience. The food is crafted fresh to order with precise presentation, the flavors traditional and complementary. Just a fantastic experience. The prices are in the higher... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've been to in Sydney, and quite reasonably priced as well. A list of the daily fresh seafood and where it's from authenticates the providence. Stick to the seafood, it's very fresh and delicious.
