sushi masa

I like the prawn and salmon sushi with miso soup at good reasonable price. I dislike the mustard because it has a pungent taste

This is a no-frills down-to-earth small Japanese eatery serves authentic Japanese food at a reasonable price. If you want fancy decor or banquet type of Japanese food, don't come here. But if you just want to simple, home-cooking type of Japanese food, and don't want to get ripped off, then this is the place I'll recommend. We had Tenzaru Soba... More

Whilst visiting a friend he suggested we have dinner at one of his favourite haunts. Sushi Masa has been quietly serving its outstanding fare for a couple of decades yet I had never visited. It is tucked away between louder, brighter neighbors such that you could walk by and not notice it was there. I must have done so dozens... More

You can buy a lot of sushi in Melbourne, but at Sushi Masa, you'll get the real deal. It's one of the few places in Melbourbe wirh a properly trained sushi chef, and after tasting the food you'll understand the difference this makes. You'll find common and famous Japanese dishes here, but they taste better than almost anywhere else in... More

The menu has plenty of variety with bento boxes, sashmi, hot pots and other Japanese fare but I can't help but always order the rib-sticking, soothing eggy tofu (tofu don). The tempura I've tried has been crisp and perfectly cooked and the miso soup among the best I've tasted in Melbourne. Prices are affordable ($12-25 for a main course). The... More

Their sushi is great value and delicious with a good variety of different things on the platter. Probably their best dish and is highly recommended. The other dishes are average I found, not bad but nothing special. The restaurant itself is quite small so a booking is recommended and the atmosphere is bar like. For a full review, visit my...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
