We have had the pleasure of dining at Roca in London, another Nick Watt creation, and had that experience as a benchmark. Masu was different but every bit as good. The food is innovative so a harsh critic could claim it is not authentic Japanese,...More

Wow what an amazing Sunday brunch. At first because I am coeliac I thought it would be a bit of a disaster as not very much on the Robata counter was gluten free. Our very attentive waiter organised for a platter of specially made gluten...More

Massage at east day spa, meal at masu which I’ve never been to. Wonderful - very buzzy, great maître’d, wait staff were a wee bit slow but very informative and helpful with meals and sake. And the food was utterly fabulous. Every mouthful exceptional

This was a family lunch to celebrate a special birthday so we were careful in selecting the venue, hence the disappointment. I struggled to rate it a 3. It involved a buffet lunch of sushi, sashimi, a broth soup, grilled salmon pieces etc The quality,...More

"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. Nic Watt
