We’re regulars and think that this is the best and most sophisticated sushi restaurant in Portland.

I was out of town for work in Portland. The food was fresh and delicious. The three of us shared 6 rolls and the Mackerel. It was a bit too much food but it was delicious. The Miso soup is a bit too salty but it has a flavor similar to Udon that keeps you drinking. The Death by Sushi was my favorite roll with its creamy warm taste. One ordered the Day Boat (albacore tuna) from the specials list which was excellent. If you like spicy don’t skip the Japanista.

Great service, cool spot for a date, sushi was really good but not the best I’ve had. Still would recommend Masu after hitting up the local breweries!

The food here is great. Our waitress made us feel a little rushed which was surprising since it wasn't too busy. Otherwise, it was a good meal.

We sat at the sushi bar. As usual, Niko took care of us. The fish was fresh, tasty and he kept the dishes coming. The oysters are divine:silky soft especially Japanista, spicy hamachi & spicy scallop handrolls. The bar served generous pours (martinis & Sapphire/ tonics) & the wait staff is always responsive & quick. There are many good sushi bars in Portland but we have yet to find one that compares to the superb quality of consistently fresh fish at Masu. We’ll be back soon!

Always excellent! Very fresh fish and great variety. I always go with the 9 piece chef’s choice sushi and am always very pleased. Knowledgeable and attentive staff, too!

Food was as amazing as I remember and the plates were gorgeous. We were confused about who our server was though, and our drink order was never taken. We felt forgotten about and were sitting with empty plates and water glasses in front of us for most of the night, so it was more awkward than it needed to be. Food is good enough to come back at some point, but for the price only for very special occasions.

Some of the best sushi we have ever had. We had four sushi rolls - The St. Helen’s Volcano, Death by Sushi & Japanista rolls were phenomenal. The Kenzo was good, but not close to the flavors of the other three.

One of the best places in PDX for shashimi and rolls. The fish was fresh and in the right temperature to eat. The uni was nice and dry. Would highly recommend.

I am so glad that I paid attention to the reviews of Masu Sushi. It was absolutely DELICIOUS and I can’t wait to visit again the next time I am in Portland. I am a sushi snob and Masu was OUTSTANDING!!! I highly recommend!

We went to Masu with a group of 8 people. I’ve been enjoying sushi for 39 years and this was some of the freshest and best sushi I’ve ever eaten. Service was excellent. Good drinks. We all had a great time.

Took my family here to celebrate a special occasion. The sushi was amazing! The service was great but there was a problem with the bill. We attempted to split the bill 50/50 but instead of 50/50 we received 50/100... They fixed it, but It was a good thing we checked as the prices here are high.

Went to Masu I got the miso ramen, uni, inari & a roll. Everything was spectacular. Their sushi is probably one of the best I’ve had. Would highly recommend and happily return!

Everything was great except the waitress was kinda rushing to take our plates and I didn't even finish all the stuff on the dish yet! As soon as I took the last piece of sushi she took the plate away. I was still eating the ginger and other veggies. Also, she gave us the check before we finished eating.

Best Sushi in town!! Masu is my brothers favorite sushi spot in Portland so he recommended it to me. Now that I’ve been there myself I couldn’t agree more! Took my daughter for some pre-concert fare and boy was it so worth it! With the great food at Masu we can’t wait to go back! We live out in rural Washington county and don’t usually like to go to Portland much anymore as it seems to be turning into a cesspool but the great experience at Masu almost makes it worth the risk!

The miso soup was silky, salty and satisfying. My favorite was the Japanese curry. And the sake...yum.

The restaurant is on the second floor (an elevator is available). The decor is modern but comfortable. I opted to be seated at the bar. The front receptionist was friendly. I ordered food through the sushi chef. Food was delicious and very fresh. Chef accommodated my requests. Prices are fair. I would have given a 5 for service but my server was not attentive. I had to call her attention every time I needed something. A man gave my check in the middle of my meal which is considered rude. I would come back again at my next visit to Portland.

The sushi is excellent and well prepared. This is a favorite stop of ours every time we’re in the area. The ambience is trendy and moody without being pretentious or snooty, and the food is always fantastic.
