Enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The service was five stars. Can't fault the food or service. But didn't get 1 of our entrees but I would highly recommend this classy Resturant any time. Great job guys!

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 come to Masuya occasionally for lunch with colleagues or after work for a nice meal. It has never let me down, the seafood is always fresh and tasty and the service is friendly and efficient. A winner

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.

Good quality Japanese foods, vibrant and jam-packed, Cheap and reasonable evenings out with friends compared to Azuma, Kobe Jones and overly priced Tatsuya

Missed the chance to have hot pot as I didn't have a reservation. The sashimi platter was fresh and served on crushed ice. Oh so good! Will be sure to make a reservation the next time I am in Sydney and try the hot pot. Prices are fair for the quality, serving portion and presentation.

Not only does this place have amazing service, those waiters go above and beyond, the seafood was fresh and we had the most amazing wagyu beef hot pot! I can't say anything bad about this place, I will definitely be going back

Masuya is one of those restaurants where delicious, fresh Aussie produce is merged with exquisite Japanese cooking artistry. I love bringing overseas visitors to this establishment as they come to realise the high standard of Japanese food here in my own home town (rather than complaining how expensive everything is in Australia!). Always a great place to dine with friends... More
