“An average Japanese food experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I am not a Japanese food connoissieur but have have quite a bit of experience in eating this style of food in good restaurants. The experience was average, 1 of the waiteresses tried her best to help with advice and good service, others just handed dishes through the curtain expecting us to take them from her and put them on the table ourselves.!!

I know about tuna and the proper preperation required of it to make sashimi, the service had me on edge so i asked them to seer the tuna sashima prior to serving, when it came I had 1 bite and decided not to comit to swallowing. Perhaps it was ok, but i am used to eating tuna i have caught and this tasted and smelt really not right.

The other dishes would have been ok if we had been expected to pay 50% of the price tag.

I'd have to guess the manager either had been away for a few days or just did not give a damn.

In summary the food did not equate to the price.

“Top notch Japanese BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Our family's favorite Japanese restaurant. We love the tepanyaki and yakiniku. A bit pricey to run too often, but well worth the wait. Excellent.

“Very good japanese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Had a dinner here. Very good sushi and saikoro steak was delicious. Only bad thing was that they didn't have mango for Mango Caramel dessert. Nice add was that when we left and asked them to order us a blue-bird taxi, they took us to our hotel with the restaurant's car.
Would definetely go again.

“One of the best Japanese restaurants in Bali”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Musashi has been a regular for us for a few years now. Unlike most other Japanese restaurants in Bali, Musashi have paid a lot of attention to the design and decor of the room. Service is excellent and the yakiniku is of a very good quality. Jo karubi is the best. Recommended.

“Avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Well we read all the other reviews and thought mostly positive, should be ok. First mistake. Walking in, we were the only ones in the restaurant at just after 7. Alarm bells should have rung but we had several little kids so had to go through with it. The place looked ok, what harm right? To cut a long story short, end result was food poisoning to all from mild to bad. Sashimi comes in big chunks. Not really great value. Better actually in Sydney. Found out next day from tour guide that Japanese in Bali to be avoided. Very hit and miss. In this case, miss.
