Sushi and other entrees were much smaller and not as good as the Japanese grocery store back home. Not worth the cost. They did not even provide the hot hand towels. The shrimp tempura was thinner than my finger and I am petite. They also did not provide and tempura vegetables. We have loved all the other restaurants at Aria but do not recommend this one.

The quality of sushi is better than other Japanese restaurant. It's fresh and good, but not excellent compare to their price. I tried squid, toro tuna, ikura caviar, hirame, and uni. Uni sea urchin was very good quality,

In my photo, it is featured a yellow tail with jalapeno with thin crunchie edible filaments that added texture to the taste. It was Excellent! But, what really blew my socks off were the Peking Duck tacos. Those were simple a melting in your mouth dish with an authentic chinese roasted duck taste. Simple a SUPERB taste.

Putting the prices completely aside, as the prices are what you would expect in a Las Vegas Hotel. The sushi is beyond sub-par. Extremely mediocre pcs of nigiri and bland rolls. The sushi comes out of the kitchen as well, as if to hide the freshness and specialty. Stick with the hot food here but regardless, you will be underwhelmed. The low YELP ratings are spot on.

We went here for a pre-show dinner while we were in Vegas. We were warned about the pricing before making the reservation. While the menu is a little pricey, it is not more expensive than any other top tier sushi restaurant we have tried in the past. And that being said, the food is well worth the price. The fish of course is top quality, but the sushi rice is what makes it so great. Additionally, the drink selection is diverse and unique. Lastly, the service is excellent. Our waiter made great recommendations and made sure we had an outstanding experience. If you love good sushi, I would highly recommend this restaurant while you are in Vegas.

Absolutely my favorite Sushi in Las Vegas. In addition to some of the best sushi, the Tempura and Chicken Yakatori are awesome. The place is super modern, bright and clean. Always makes me feel my food is the same.

Although the quality of the sushi was quite good, it's just not acceptable to eat expensive sushi like this without seeing the chef preparing the fish. Simple as that.

I really enjoyed my meal here. The waiter's recommendations were excellent. I love the Japanese beer selection. It's pricey, but the experience is worth it. I only wish the tables weren't immobile. I would have liked to adjust the distance from the booth.

Paid about $240 (incl. alcohol, tax, and tip) for one (1) person - are mostly Nigiri items, an unagi roll, and Kumamoto oysters. Food was very good but nothing special. You'll find better sushi elsewhere. unagi roll with avocado was probably the best dish I had (thanks to server's recommendation). Really nothing special about the experience.

The worst part is I felt rushed. I made 9:45pm reservations - the last available for that night. Don't do it. Last call was about 10:15 - no problem - I got everything I wanted. At 10:30 in the middle of my meal, however, they suddenly turned on all the lights and stopped the music - dead silence. It went from a dimly lit room to a fully lighted room in a second - major pupil adjustment. I paid my bill and was out of there shortly after 10:45.

One hour. $240. Certainly it wasn't a special experience, no wow factor, just OK. I expected a little more at these prices than a rushed ho-hum experience.

Terrible. Mediocre food, small portions and hefty price tag. You can have one of those three qualities and I'm fine with that, but you can't have all three. I would never go here again.

Here for business and three of us went. Prices would have been fine if food and service quality were next level, sadly they just don't deliver.

We came here as a large group for my birthday. The staff was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We enjoyed every single bite. I was surprised there were not more people as it was very quiet and empty. This is such a hidden gem I hope more people realize that soon. I will definitely be back when in Vegas.

Good sushi but certainly way overpriced per its location in the Aria. When I went the place was pretty empty during dinner time, made obvious by the size of the dining area. The sushi was fresh and solid, but somewhat in line with many (but not all) of the top sushi places in say, New York. Service was very attentive. However, the price point certainly is quite high and the ambiance didn't quite match the dining experience one would expect for the large bill.

Fish was fresh but they were skimpy. After $400 worth of sushi, rolls and sashimi we were still hungry. Rolls were small and the chef did not do standards such as a rainbow roll. Over priced for what you get. Wait staff were attentive. Not crowded at all.

I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews, but it was New Years Eve and we didn't have reservations anywhere and this was one of the only restaurants we could get into, but it was absolutely PERFECT! We had the duck and the beef fried rice and they were amazing! I also had hot sake. The price was not too expensive and the ambiance was just right for a romanic dinner

 (Hawaii)·Dined on November 1, 2016

Sushi was below average especially compared to other sushi places in Las Vegas. Very disappointed in the overall food experience. Also, the price to food style was too high. I would not recommend BARMASA as a place to entertain customers or expect to have a great sushi experience. On a positive note, the lead server for our group of 20 people did a great job of making sure we were well taken care of.
Background of our meal:
Customer dinner event: 20 people
Ordering style: Chef's Choice, we let the Chef select the courses @$200.00 per person.
VERY disappointed in the offering. We got a lot of rice for $200.00 per person.

The food was outstanding, but the service was subpar and well below expectations for the price point. At times, the service was actually bad and mediocre at other times. In general, I think that the price is very high for the overall experience quality. Only the food meets expectations at this price level.
