Description: "A passion for flavour and dedication to detail" Welcome to MASU, the exciting Japanese robata restaurant and bar located in the Federal Street dining precinct. MASU brings atmosphere, passion and a contemporary twist to the traditional robata style of cooking over an open charcoal grill. My philosophy is simple - use fresh local ingredients, enhance the natural flavours of each dish and let the food speak for itself. This pure approach to cuisine is reflected in our clean, natural decor. Add to this a lively, informal atmosphere and you have a beautifully bold and dramatically different style of Japanese dining in the heart of Auckland. Nic Watt

“Great Japanese food, with fantastic service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Had a great meal here in early April, the service was sharp, the food was great, interesting flavours and sooooo fresh, the waiter made the menu much easier to decipher than it looked and we had a great night, Vincent I think his name was, very friendly and informative.
Had an amazing array of Sakes to match our meal and finished with a great dessert selection.
Will definitely be returning here very regularly.
A must visit in Auckland.

“Nice but not special”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

The waiting staff were excellent knowledgeable and had great attention to detail. The dessert platter was fantastic. The food presentation was amazing. The mains were the big let down the tempura was less than average the others were okay. All in all a pleasant evening but nothing special taste wise.

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

My husband and I ate here as a party of 12 on 22 March. The food was outstanding. I thought I had eaten great Japanese food previously but I can honestly say that the selection of food served at Masu was the best I'd ever had. The waiter helped us put together a menu which satisfied all our tastes, and a great range of dishes were presented. We had an outstanding Pinot Noir which was excellent. As visitors to Auckland, we were very impressed by everything this restaurant had to offer. Would love to return there again one day, and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting the SkyCity precinct.

“brilliant”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

The best thing sky city has is this restaraunt. The food was the best we have had in Auckland and the staff are fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole dining experience and very reasonalby priced. Great wines too. Maybe Skycity should take a leaf out of good service training from this establishment. Masu is a jewel in your crown
