    Service was good and people were friendly. Sushi was mediocre at best during this visit. Not what I’d expect from this restaurant (pre-pandemic was my previous experience, which was great). Ingredients were missing from the roll, spicy rolls had no flavor/spice, and spring rolls were falling apart as they were poorly assembled. I really hope this isn’t representative of Masu nowadays, not sure I’ll go back for quite sometime.

    The service was very helpful and knowledgeable about the different aspects of each dish. The appetizer & Entrees were great. I would not get dessert again. Fairly loud by the kitchen, and with noise coming from the bar. I hope something could be done about that. Overall solid experience.

    The Masu and Firecracker rolls were prepared MUCH differently than in the past. The sauces were clearly not the same. Probably a chef was not trained properly. The firecracker roll was covered with what tasted like ketchup. To be fair, the buns were prepared properly and tasted normal. Overall, it was a very disappointing meal--the first we have ever had in years at Masu. It was so bad that my wife and I discussed not going to Masu in the future and to investigate other restaurants. I would suggest giving my wife and me a free meal and a note what happened and what actions Masu has taken. Prior to this, my wife and I thought Masu was the best sushi restaurant in the Twin Cities. Obviously, I would not spend the time to write a review unless it was important to me. Prior to this, Masu was our favorite restaurant. Dave Solberg

    If you're looking for quality or authentic Japanese cuisine, you might want to look elsewhere. The food was mediocre at best and overpriced. However, the service was efficient and friendly.

    Excellent service by our waitress Alicia B. She was attentive to our needs and suggested great choices in our menu selection. The only draw back was a couple of tables where they were excessively loud and talking and laughing. Other than that a great experience and we will be back.

    Overall, I enjoyed my experience and the food. My sashimi and nigiri was fresh and tasty. Also, I love agedashi, but have allergies, and the server was able to get me a wonderful dipping sauce for the tofu. That said, there were a couple of glitches. We ordered edamame and wanted part of it unsalted, but all was salted. The mochi we ordered was ‘old’ and had a sugary granular taste. The green tea ice cream was rather blah. I would still go back because the main attraction - sushi, was good.

    It had been years since I ate at Masu. I understand that the pandemic affected the menu. Tempura is gone and a shocker, the robata menu is small and also very Americanized now. Previously my Japanese friend said it was just like Japan but now it is westernized. The nigiri sushi lacks a central element no wasabi under the sushi meat. Arrive was great and good atmosphere but I hope they go back to their more authentic menu soon.

    The host and wait staff were all very polite and professional. But their kitchen must be short staffed because it was a 45 minute wait if not a bit more to get our food. It was a slower Wednesday evening in the restaurant.

    We've been going to masu for nearly a decade and it only gets better over time! The ramen is amazing, lip smacking, packed with flavor, with perfect chewy noodles. The robata is delicious - good char, good flavor, so succulent. But the sushi... the sushi is top tier, mouthwatering, fantastic!

    We loved that you are required to show proof of vaccination to get in, and felt comfortable with the distance between tables and that servers wore masks. The noise level was just right-loud enough to not have awkward silences or feel like we were disturbing others with our laughter, but not so loud that we had to shout to be heard. Staff was friendly and knowledgable, and the food was excellent. We have always loved coming to Masu for date nights and this, like every time, did not disappoint.
