Masu serves very high quality and fresh sushi. They have interesting, unique maki (roll sushi), as well as the classics. I ordered, the dungeness, yellowtail, chinook, and salmon roe nigiri, and all were excellent. Masu also serves a number of unusual vegetarian dishes. The waitstaff at Masu are friendly and knowledgeable, and the venue is pleasant, clean, and upscale. Perhaps it is one of the more pricey sushi/saki bars in Portland, but it is worth every cent. Plus, they validate parking in a nearby garage! I strongly recommend Masu.

Awesome experience. If you are looking for a little more then a sushi conveyor belt this is the place. The whole staff was friendly and offered up amazing suggestions. Every dish was impressive with a great balance of flavors that could satisfy a diversity of palates. Get the calamari and the eggplant and anything else, and you will be satisfied. The bartender from the Zues Cafe at the Crystal Hotel recommended it and I thank him for that.

Phenomenal sushi. I'd highly recommend sitting at the bar and ordering from Kevin. He's the best.

Went to MASU for a girls dinner with my best friend and my daughters while visiting Portland. Our driver recommended it, so we said, "why not?" Upon arrival, the host seemed irritated that we did not have a reservation, and I immediately noticed that he chose not to speak to me, and instead directed all of his attention to my best friend. We were seated in a waiting lounge, and served our beers. The lounge was cozy, and comfy. When our table was ready, the host came over and carried my friends beer, while I was left to carry my own..... which I felt was incredibly rude, especially since his other hand was not full. It was clear that something about me, he did not like. Anyway, we ordered two of the cucumber crab appetizers, two Mt. St. Helens, one rip city, one pearl, four California rolls, two specialty oyster shooters, and two oysters on the half shell. The food was good. No real complaints there. I did notice that the maki fell apart very easily, which is pretty frustrating when eating sushi. Our waitress was attentive, but questioned what I ordered and tried to tell me what appetizer to order. I didn't like that at all, if I need a suggestion, I will ask for it. Personally, both the Pearl and the Rip City stood out. Both had a good amount of spiciness that either started out spicy and finished nicely, or started out savory and ended with a kick. Absolutely delicious. The Mt. St. Helens was interesting, I'm not sure that I loved it, but I certainly didn't dislike it. It had Bonito flakes in great quantity on the top, and is what I would call a very savory roll. For me, it seemed like it had intense flavors, but not a lot of depth or layering of flavors. Everything just blended together and tasted the same from start to finish. It was served with a flaming cucumber, which was a fun touch. The oyster shooters were delicious, and much larger than any I have been served in the past. On the cucumber crab appetizer, there was some delicious sea kelp, that really stood out to me. I would absolutely try this place again, and plan to do so soon, but I think I would make reservations beforehand. If I have the same feelings about the host, I won't return. He definitely made me feel unwelcome and even burdensome, which I did not appreciate.

One star for the food, but service was good! If you're looking for good Sushi, this is NOT the place: Sushi is made with rice and the topping, they're equally important! I had some octupus Sushis Friday night, the rice was only 1/3 of the size of the topping... Sushi rice was under seasoned and not chewy enough, this is signe of having students/part time cook in th kitchen. Over price for these low quality food.

Our favorite sushi in Portland, hands down. There is a premium price associated with Masu and the quality of the fish and preparation reflect that as well. We've yet to have a bad roll, let alone a single bad piece of nigiri.

Start with the miso, it will change your whole week. You might just want to make a meal out of the wasabi and ginger alone. Both were fresh, crisp, and incredible. The presentation alone makes you want to come back for more. There are many classic dishes, and a few unique ones of their own (the Mt. St. Helen's is pretty epic, flaming cucumbers and all). If you're looking for some mouth watering sushi, try Masu.
