Hands down the best Japanese I have ever had. Crayfish Tacos - really, hell yes. Here was I thinking that Teriyaki anything was what someone ordered when they really wanted meat and 3 veg but Masu did something special. Only think that didn't taste perfect was dessert - sesame ice cream is dead boring.
Wine list is brilliant. Nothing else needs to be said. Drinks list on the whole is outstanding. I continue to enjoy experimenting with Japanese whiskey.
Service was good but not perfect. Our waiter was super enthusiastic but their system left us without drinks and searching for someone to help once or twice. I wouldn't bust a blood vessel over this, paying is the time to do that.
I didn't like the layout. Too busy, too noisey and we were too close to the door. I like seeing the kitchen, I like hearing the murmur of people having a good time but I personally enjoy an amount of intimacy with those I have chosen to dine with.
I don't like anything associated with Skycity and the trip back to the carpark, past the large families enjoying an evening gambling with the kids reminded me of this.
It is expensive. It is comparable with most fine dining experiences but it isn't fine dining. To me it is more of a bistro environment. I also struggle with how raw fish can cost that much. Don't get me wrong the sashimi is beautiful - I haven't had better. It is however raw fish on a plate.
Am I glad I went - yes, it sets the bar. Will I go back - no, I can get pretty close for a fraction of the price and without going anywhere near Skycity.
