This place is awesome! It always has great food and good service. With a large crowd it can get pricey, but it is well worth a drive here to enjoy a special occasion or just a family outing.

Very generous food portions. The filet mignon was superb. The manager made our evening extra special. We now have one very grateful little girl!

Great lunch spot! My husband had the shrimp yakisoba and I had the chicken hibachi. Portions were plentiful. The gyoza dumblings were fried just right.

I can not say too many good things about Massaki's! The cooks are entertaining, full of personality, and the food is heavenly. My workplace visits there a couple times per year because of the quality of food and atmosphere created by the chefs.

Average in terms of ambiance and food quality. The tuna was overcooked and chewy. The veggies were very good. The value for the price was decidedly poor.

We had my birthday dinner here in April with another family. The hibachi chef was humorous and kept everyone around the table entertained as he cooked the meals. For a "slower" evening, the service was slow, and we were there for over an hour and a half. With younger kids (ages 18 months to 7 years), that made things a... More

We were staying in Staunton for the night & thought we would give this place a try. Had no idea what to expect but WOW didn't expect the prices. Average meal $20. They were extremely busy and I don't think they had enough staff on hand. My 3 kids ordered a few sushi rolls & I ordered a meal. My... More

Miso soup was incredible. Sushi rolls just so-so. Edamame was overlooked and mushy. Probably the only sushi in town, so you can't complain. Better than eating at Applebee's!

My parents enjoy hibachi grills so I decided to treat them to dinner here. They had the typical hibachi selections on the menu . My parents had shrimp and steak. The steak was a bit tough. The rice/veggies were average. The miso soup was mostly broth but had great flavor. The table chef looked like he has about to fall... More
