I have been to Masuya many times already and this is the one that I must go whenever I visit Sydney. One of the reasons is that it's just 5 mins walk from office other than the food tastes good. I ordered some sashimi, sushi and deep friend oysters this time. The food has always kept its high quality standard.... More

I recently went here for lunch and enjoyed a wonderful Bento box. My partner and I had two different boxes and enjoyed sharing our selections. The food was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. The service was excellent too.

We have been visiting this restaurant each time we come to Sydney and yes this is our 15th year. The food is fantastic, staff are friendly and helpful and the service quite fast for a restaurant. Best to book as it fills up quite quickly.

Taken for lunch place is packed. The service attentive. My companion recommended the Daily special Bento box was that a treat. The food was sublime every mouthful was bliss. Cannot wait to go back as only around the corner and make my way through the menu. Food envy struck as plates passed the table.

Usually crowded with family and business people. Very popular. If you dont like oyster (allergy), then you can ask to replace it with something else they can offer. (usually tofu). Seemingly managed by Japanese ... (not sure).

I've eaten sushi in Japan and this is as good as it gets in Sydney. Chef Toshi is a true master. I love to sit at the sushi bar for an authentic experience. Toro melts in your mouth. Love this place !!

Great Japanese places in the city, it's easily missed as its in the basement. Masuya offers a extensive menu and is great for groups, just make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment of being turned away. The sashimi 'melts in the mouth' - it's always fresh and of high quality, they really take their sushi/sashimi seriously. As far as... More

Arrived at the airport and headed straight to the restaurant before checking in. Booked a table for 6 and we ordered a fair bit of dishes. A bottle of sake, a sashimi boat, hot pot plus additional servings of raw fish, oysters, squids and sushi. Sake was good, the sashimi was fresh and the hot pot excellent. The table arrangement...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
