“Good quality that isn't nearly good enough to justify the prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

They prepare good chinese food but nothing that really distinguishes itself from other Dar chinese options. Yet, the prices are quite high. You can find certain items at somewhat reasonable prices but most were above and beyond normal/fair. I understand that Masaki prices are inflated but this was a bit much. My rating is mostly a reflection of this. If you have no problem spending disproportionately to quality you can have a nice meal here.

“Fengshui on the menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This place is a truly beautiful restaurant, the satisfaction beginning from the moment you step in. The waiters and managers are friendly and quick on their feet, your order is taken quickly and accurately, with the waiters offering great tips on selection of you should ask, and the food usually arrives within a 15 minutes.
The food is hot, fresh and delicious. You may also take away in which case they will pack it into plastic containers for you.
Price wise the food isn't cheap, but I believe you get what you pay for, and there you get a lot. Definitely worth my hard earned money.
No place is perfect and I'm sure others may disagree, but for me, this place has the best Chinese food I've yet to have.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
