Good sushi and nice place to eat

I agree with the person who said that Sushi Masa is like a home town diner only with sushi. I have only been there for dinner, not lunch so I can't comment on any lunch specials, and I've been going there for over 2 years. Compared to their competitors in Sioux Falls, I think Sushi Masa is the one... read more

I love sushi, sashimi, and all sorts of exotic roles. This spot in downtown Sioux Falls is the best for miles. Fresh fish, very flavorful ingredients, in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. When you think of South Dakota you probably don't of sushi but if you are living here or just passing through and this is what you have a... More

My husband and I have been going here for years. We love a variety of there offerings. Our favorites are the spicy spinach, the shrimp tempura roll and salmon sashimi. The food is great, the chefs are wonderful! (I suggest avoiding the tuna, it can be hit or miss.)

I ordered one of my favorite dishes and it tasted AWFUL. There are other restaurants in town with much better, much fresher sushi, yet this place has a line out the door every day at lunchtime. Save the wait and go to Tokyo.

Masa Sushi is like a home town diner only with great sushi. I was greeted quickly & sat at the bar. The waiter brought saki and tea quickly and was back in minutes to take my order. The Tricolor was a dinner sushi platter that came with a salad and miso soup. Lots of food for $22. The portions were... More

As I have been living in Asia and travelling to Japan multiple times, I am always skeptical to reviews saying how good a Japanese food is in the US. But Sushi Masa Japanese is definitely one of those that do not deserve a good review. In a Sunday evening I went to this Japanese Restaurant when I passed Sioux Falls,... More

First and still best. Love going to this small restaurant. Husband and wife owners prepare the sushi and if they aren't there it's closed. Food and service outstanding and feel welcome all the time.

Very authentic, great prices and service. This sushi is some of the best I've had and I'm from So Cal. The fish just melts in your mouth. So fresh!

There have been many competitors that have arisen in recent years, but Sushi Masa remains the best place in Sioux Falls for high-quality sushi. Their soup is untouchable. The ambiance is excellent. If they bring back their lunch hours, life will once again be complete.

Over the past few years, Sushi Masa lost it's title as only sushi place in town. It is still, BY FAR, the best value and most delicious food. It is unfortunately not open over lunch which is disappointing because the lunch specials are amazing.
