Took advantage of "Food Months" $55 menu and was not disappointed, indeed would have paid much more for such and excellent meal and service. The Chef's nigiri selection of salmon, tuna and snapper was a great introduction but soon surpassed by the silky smoothness of...More

Great Japanese Restaurant. This was our second visit for lunch, the food and the presentation was outstanding and the service excellent. A bit pricy.

We visited Masu on a busy Saturday evening and the 3 of us were seated directly at the sushi bar. Although not seated at a table we quite enjoyed the view of the sushi chefs delicately preparing the many sashimi plates going out that night....More

"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
