I've been going to Masuo's for twelve years, since I moved to Solana Beach. I have never had anything less than, the best Sushi ever there! My favorite is the Bluefin Sashimi and the Rasta Roll, which is a chef's favorite and not on the menu. We have eaten inside, out front, on the back patio and in the Lani.... More

After a day at Moonlight beach we went out for dinner. Pulled up to Masuo's, was not busy so in we went. Ordered 3 rolls, the Jimmy roll (or Timmy?) was good as was the spicy tuna, the other roll was ok. What was very good was the service. Our waitress was outstanding, attentive but not overbearing. I felt the... More

This place has a good vibe. The patio and lounge room out back has a very local Solana Beach feel. The casual and comfortable atmosphere. That being said, I have eaten all over Southern California and I am fisherman and a seasoned sushi chef, but this place sets "the bar" for all I have tried.

Masuo's is a longtime favorite in Solana Beach. Always good service and quality food. On a recent visit the bluefin toro was some of the best I've ever had.

Masuo's is popular among Solana Beach locals. Prices reasonable and fare is Calif. Japanese. Relaxed beach atmosphere and located on Hwy 101, which is main drag through beach towns. Extensive menu of sushi rolls.

Portions of sashimi and sushi rolls were 50-60% scale and overpriced for the quality. Nice patio out back, but the service was barely passable. Added an 18% tip to our family of 6 bill automatically, which is bad business and way more than they earned. Won't be back.

A group of neighbors enjoyed a wide range of their sashimi, sushi and other offerings. The fish did seem fresh. The oysters on the half shell were large and tasted of the sea. The citrus spice yellowtail hamachi with thinly sliced avocado, lemon, & jalapeño and ponzu drizzle was a delicious combination. The "krab cakes" were okay, it would have... More

Sushi was good enough, the beer was cold and the staff was friendly and accommodating to a solo dad and his two little girls.

Fabulous, very fresh sushi. I can't believe we've driven by here so many times and finally stopped. We have friends who only eat fish and they took us there. Will definitely go back!
