While passing through the area the front desk representative at our hotel suggested this eatery. We arrived for an early dinner around 5:15 and discovered they have an early-bird special until 5:30. It was an incredible deal! We enjoyed the cooking show and the sushi was excellent as well. Forget the chain restaurants nearby and eat here.

Very friendly atmosphere and tasty fare. Nice sized portions. Try to go before 5:30 for the Early Bird special. Well worth it.

Overall the restaurant was average, with the exception of the service which was great. The soup was very salty. The hibachi food was average. You get a choice of white or fried rice... Then a choice of carrots, onions or zucchini for vegetables. You also get an appetizer choice of shrimp or mushrooms.... And they mix mushrooms with pretty much all of the entrees anyways.

If staying in the area in a hotel the food is decent. If in the area for an extended time I'd look elsewhere.

We travel to Staunton several times a year for the Shakespeare, and have watched the restaurants come and go, mostly without regret. Massaki is a find - and recommended by several local friends. The hibachi meals can be ordered at a table (rather than as a show), and all the fish was fabulous - fresh and tasty and beautifully cooked. My sushi was excellent.
The lunch and early dinner specials (before 5:30 pm) are great - including 30% off sushi!
This will be our new go-to restaurant in Staunton from now on.

Friendly host, good service, nice decor, and a good show. Too bad only the menu describes Japanese food but the cusine is strictly Staunton fare on rice. Now to be fair, we did not try any sushi at our lunch, I had Udon with tempura vegs, and she had Hibachi chicken with fried rice. We were both served a "house salad" of iceberg lettuce that must have been cut by the dishwasher. The fried rice had no identifiable flavor, the three year old at our Hibachi thought it was wonderful. The fried spring rolls were made without identifiable ingredients or flavor. Udon soup was mild, but tasty broth. Yum Yum sauce was described by the server as, "1000 Island without pickle relish". That was correct. The only Yum Yum in our lunch was name of their sauce. We almost booked a party of 8, before we tried Japan's bow to the mid-Virginia palate. I wish they gave us more credit for knowing good food.
