Awesome Japanese cuisine in SkyCity. Recommend sitting at the bar seating to see the kitchen and knife skills of the chefs. Plenty of options for non-seafood eaters. Attentive wait staff. highly recommend the baby chicken.

Last experience was the woeful Grove so we were a bit wary about another restaurant with a good reputation but this one lived up to its reputation. Well worth the visit, great staff, quick service, some interesting tastes.

"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.
