Always greeting you with a big HEY HOW ARE YOU as soon as you walk in and talking to you about how you are doing. I love their Unagi and Red Dragon roll. Their Teriyaki style chicken is... read more

Better mediocre sushi than no sushi, although it's difficult to ascertain if the sushi here was truly any tastier than the one from krogers and martins. The prices are certainly higher!

Lunch specials 30% off good selection on back page, which is a good deal. We eat here regularly. They also have a stellar Japanese section that lots of big groups go to for good food and a chef show in front of table diners.

We stopped in Staunton on our drive from Atlanta to New York. The manager at our motel recommended this restaurant when we asked for Japanese. It was the best we ever had! Not only was the food excellent and very fresh, but there was so much of everything! The chef who cooked at our table was fun and seemed to... More

This place is awesome! It always has great food and good service. With a large crowd it can get pricey, but it is well worth a drive here to enjoy a special occasion or just a family outing.

Great lunch spot! My husband had the shrimp yakisoba and I had the chicken hibachi. Portions were plentiful. The gyoza dumblings were fried just right.

I can not say too many good things about Massaki's! The cooks are entertaining, full of personality, and the food is heavenly. My workplace visits there a couple times per year because of the quality of food and atmosphere created by the chefs.
