The design is lovely, but the food is a bit of a let down. We were expecting a bit more finesse for the price and hype.

Masu is a hidden surprise just outside the Pearl. It's upstairs with nice light and the space is cozy. The menu is extensive without being overwhelming. Best of all the sushi is very good and fresh. The kale and edamame salad is big and very good. Service is quick and friendly

Excellent sushi in a very cool and friendly atmosphere. Try the chefs choice salmon flight and you'll get a variety like nowhere else. They offer a very affordable selection of high quality sake. Cheers.

I'm not sure if it was the hunger that made me appreciate Masu more but their food was just bomb. We sat by the bar and although the sushi chef didn't talk much, he treated us to a special marinated toro dish. On top of that, we ordered assorted sashimi, a few pieces of nigiri, and a couple skewers. The... More

WOW!!! So very good 10/10. I'm not big on "best I ever...' HOWEVER, my normal go to roll is rainbow roll so I've had them lots of places. This was the best rainbow roll I've ever had. Miso ramen was fantastic as well

With only 2 days in Portland, we were having a hard time picking restaurants. My youngest decided she wanted sushi. Even though we can get that at home, the rest of the group compromised, or so we thought. After finding the restaurant (upstairs with the main window obscured by trees) we had a really great meal. The cocktails were fresh... More

I brought some friends here for sushi a few weeks ago even though one of them doesn't even like sushi. Well this place changed her mind. Delicious innovative rolls and super fresh nigiri. And some yummy creative cocktails! It's not cheap - the atmosphere is hip and you pay for being in a very cool establishment that not only has... More

This was the best sushi we ever had. We searched it out after remembering this restaurant from years ago. It's on the second floor and worth the climb!

Our family came here on a Thursday for dinner and I used Open Table to set our reservation. We were greeted right as we came up the stairs and were seated right away. Our server was really good and did a great job with our three year old. She was very helpful with the description of the rolls and got... More

We were told by our hotel that this place had fabulous sushi and they weren't kidding. Everything was very fresh, the presentation was great and we had wonderful service too. Would go back again if we are in Portland. Walking distance from our hotel too!
