The highlight was his tossing some bits of cooked shrimp for them to catch in their mouths ... funny. ...they could not stop laughing.

We had Massa recommended by the motel and it was a good meal. I am allergic to shellfish and they were very accommodating and cooked my food in the back. It was a nice little show with a large portion of food.

Massaki's is a fabulous establishment. Nathan runs the place with genuine Japanese fun. The chefs are entertaining and it's a show and great food. All staff is polite and well groomed and it's a delight from the front doors because the sushi guys are always happy and smiling. Fun for the whole family.
