Lots of staff, few patrons, extremely overprices and limited menu.
Wonderful food. Loud table near us but our food and drinks were great. Wonderful service too
We got an outdoor table at Masu for our anniversary, and our first foray out into the world post vaccination. It was fantastic. The food was really delicious, and both my partner (omnivore) and I (vegan) found lots of things to try. The veggie caterpillar roll is killer, and the lychee lemontini were top notch. The service was lovely, and we had a fantastic date. 12 out of ten stars.
We went to celebrate a birthday. Masu was not only able to accommodate our party size when I called to adjust the reservation (for seven, which is excessive of what OT lists as a maximum), but also the service was immaculate, servers were knowledgeable, we were well taken care of, and everyone enjoyed the food. We have been frequenting Masu for at least several years now and are happy with the consistency of food, service, and quality we get. Masu has delivered a great experience and meal from midday solo lunches and late night happy hour dates and pandemic takeout to group celebrations like these with anywhere from three people to a crew. In addition, they have a kitchen able to consistently and safely accommodate *celiac* eaters / severe gluten sensitivities/allergies, which is extremely helpful for including our friends with dietary restrictions. We cannot wait for the omakase option to come back.
Great to see Masu back up and running. I have to say, post vaccine, this was our first restaurant experience where we didn’t feel any need to cut the staff and kitchen some slack while they get back up to speed. In fact, we felt that the quality of this experience might have been better than the last few times we went before shutdown. So the good news it that, despite all the industry struggles over the past 2 years, Masu has gotten totes gotten its groove back! Now if we could just hit herd immunity so I can go play pachinko without feeling weird about it!
Masu is always so great! Best sushi and service in MPLS!
My favorite place to get good-quality sushi for a reasonable price.
Always good. They are getting up to speed after Covid. They will be expanding the menu soon.
The menu is somewhat limited, but the food and sushi is high quality and was very good. Not huge portions or super filling and moderately pricey, but drinks and service was great and the food tasted great too. Highly recommend the steamed buns and the sushi dishes, and the ramen was good too!
Mid level sushi, limited to choice of around 6-9 nigiri/sashimi; no toro, Saba, ebi; but does have rolls, spring rolls and hand buns. Atmosphere is similar to a diner. Bathroom was filthy, trash overflowing. Clearly not serviced during the evening.
The food and service are always amazing. The sushi is so fresh!
We picked Masu as the first restaurant we went to once fully vaccinated, so that should tell you all you need to know.
Went for sushi and cocktails and it was a fun time. Nigiri and rolls got were awesome.
Thank for a wonderful birthday celebration! Best drinks and love the rotation.
Masu is still our fav place to go to when we’re craving sushi!
Their “steam” rolls are addicting & this time I ordered the crunchy Pork Belly.
We loved it! It was our first date in a restaurant since Covid, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Masu is one of my favorite places to go with friends. Love the sushi. I miss the special touches like warm washcloths but the sushi doesn’t dissapoint
Went to Masu for a birthday celebration, just my immediate family. This was the first time we dined at a restaurant in over a year - since the start of the pandemic. Maus’s always been a favorite, and they lived up to our expectations and memories of past meals. Between the sushi rolls, the steamed buns and the pork belly, it was out of this world!
super fun place! it was my 21st birthday and it was a really fun place to celebrate! they were all so kind!
We love it there so much! If I were to make a critique, it would be that the space is probably due for some upkeep. The beautiful photos are starting to peel off of the wall and general deterioration is taking place. The food is always beautiful and the service is so great!
Worst service and experience ever. Food good. Horrible hostess.
The sushi was amazing. We requested the Itamae, Sushi Master Chef, create our rolls. He made five different rolls that were beautiful and melted in our mouths. The seafood included salmon, shrimp, scallops, tuna, and "Chef's choice" was absolutely amazing. The service was amazing!
Usually it is a great place to eat but the last time I was there I didn’t feel good after so maybe the food wasn’t fresh.
As always excellent! Asan and the team are always top notch.
A memorable meal. Our third meal here, and we decided to learn their menu a bit more, as Masu was becoming our go-to sushi restaurant, for when we could venture out. We were well rewarded! We were able to meet the two robata chefs and get their recommedations: spicy miso momo chicken thighs and ginger beef, both on skewers, with both bursting with flavor and kick, and both excellent. We had the duck potstickers again, because we've been day dreaming about them since our last visit. We weren't too close to the sushi bar, but we saw Executive Sushi Chef Katsuyuki (Asan) come a bit near our table on some errand, and we approached and introduced ourselves and received his recommendations for the evening: some extra fatty scottish salmon toro with ponzu, topped with a slice of avocado, and an order of buttery escolar delicately garnished with fermented lemon peper (yuzu kosho). They were both outstanding. We repeated the poke futomaki from our last visit, and it didn't disappoint. I had the scallops (hotategai) which were very fresh and lightly garnished with grated lemon: one of my favorite 'guys' (with mirugai, torigai, hokkigai), but only when very fresh, as it was here. The extra little touches of expert garnish distinguish the master chef-led staff from other places that we have enjoyed meals. Masu only serves responsibly fished non-endangered species, but there is no shortage of yummy flavors available. Our served Lina was very helpful and knowledgeable, and also helped guide us with some great choices. Highly recommended. Asan is a true Ryōri-chō (master chef), but both kind (a freebie desert platter at the end), and friendly. We could not have had a better experience.
It was great! Food is always good. Alejandra was our server and she was amazing
Love this place and happy to be back in the dining room!
Masu is always delicious and I felt safe and properly distanced within the restaurant.
Loved it. Amazing gyoza and salmon nigiri.
The service was outstanding & the food was delicious! I highly recommend and I will be going back, the restaurant is a little dated inside and could be cleaner.
Could not have asked for a better experience at this place! The service was phenomenal even though they were extremely busy and we felt seen and taken care of by all of the staff. Highly recommend Erin as a server and bartender, she’s awesome.
Amazing food and service. We will certainly be going back.
Food and service was great as usual. Hoping they will have their regular menu back once things open up.
Great food as always. Limited menu currently but plenty on there for everyone to find something they like. Good friendly service, cool vibe.
Ason and Erin are the stuff!! I am going back to grab some ramen and the Nordeast roll very soon.
The dynamite rolls are the best! Also recommend the ramen. Rotating tap beers is a plus.
They were able to seat us early for our date on a busy Saturday evening. Food was very good. We were disappointed that the food menu was so limited compared to what it used to be. Overall would go again.
Food was awesome service great prices very reasonable loved atmosphere little noisy couldn’t talk with table of four
One of our go to places. Awesome food and chefs. Our server tonight wasn’t super present but everything else we loved, as always.
The food was wonderful and our server was outstanding!!!
