Two rolls that I are still stuck in my memory are the salmon roll with avocado and the teriyaki eel roll with the omelette. Brilliant flavours and textures. Great food, good... More

We had seen a documentary about Masu on television, so we decided to try it out. We were asked if we had a reservation, which we did not. We could see a number of empty tables, but were told that all were reserved, however, we could have a seat at the bar and they would call us when the first... More

We had lunch in downtown Auckland at this restaurant. The food atmosphere and service were all excellent. I enjoyed the rolls and main dishes. The restaurant was quite busy at it is in the business district. The food is world class comparable to Nobu and Morimoto. The dish I enjoyed most was the crab dish I wish they offered more... More

Very fresh sashimi and sushi. Was very happy that Masu had lived to its reputation as it came highly recommended to me.Loved the crab, the fresh tuna and the maki rolls. Highly satisfying though expensive lunch which I recommend absolutely in Auckland.

Have visited a couple of times. The food is very fresh and the service exceptional. Is not a cheap meal and portion size is quite small.

Loved this place! Stumbled onto it and was pleasantly surprised that everything was exceptionally good. The crayfish tacos were seriously great and highly recommend the kingfish sashimi salad. No bad dishes at all, seriously good way to spend a nice evening.

"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.
