Fresh, authentic, and great Japanese food. This is the go to place for all the Japanese executives in the area who work for the big corporations in the area like Sony and Sharp, so you know it is good. They also serve lots of seasonal small dishes in the traditional Japanese style. Excellent service.

Masa has the best sushi in the area. Call ahead for a reservation as it can get crowded for dinner. They also have a great lunch menu. I wish they delivered!

love the selection of items such as yellowtail collar, etc. Please give a full translation for all items on Japanese only menu-it'll make people more adventurous. I agree with another reviewer about the Americanized rolls with cream cheese, get rid of that stuff please. Now is the time so let's see how they do with monkfish liver. Masa is a... More

My Tokyo born husband pronounced Masa as one of the best Japanese restaurants in north Jersey. However, that is not as high praise as it might seem as over the last decade+ Japanese restaurants in our State have become quite few. The food was a little more Americanized than other Japanese area restaurants ( cream cheese on several rolls is... More

Sushi was fresh and delicious. A little pricey for a local sushi place. Having said that, I had sushi at a very expensive place in NYC a few nights later and it was no better than Masa.

love everything on their menu - cooked and uncooked - they always have the freshest sushi and sashimi, rolls are great, special 'bistro' menu is interesting - the only thing not to like is the wait - for a table or take-out - but worth it - and it's byob - so helps to curb the cost - which is...

This is the best Japanese in northern NJ. It gets busy but everything is good. There is a good mix of locals and Japanese businessman meeting up after work. It feels authentic!

Yeah, it gets crowded on weekends, sometimes even during the week. There's a reason why. The food is consistently first rate: the fish is fresh and well cut, and the monthly specials so inventive and delicious. We try every item on the special menu every month and are never disappointed. Masa could do very well in Manhattan, but we're lucky... More
