Although this restaurant has a great location, I wasn't very impressed by the sushi. For paying that much for sushi, which I also thought was over priced. The sushi rice was bland and cold, and the rolls were small. I would also hope from an upscale restaurant that I wouldn't be getting imitation crab in my sushi rolls, but to my surprise I was paying a 17 dollar sushi roll that was filled with imitation crab. Service was great, and I loved the location. But won't be back because of the high prices for low quality food.

Easily the best sushi I've ever had, and certainly one of the best meals I've had in Portland. It was even worth the steep prices and intermittent death stares from the snotty hostess who was only willing to seat us at the bar despite being mostly empty on a Tuesday... Recommendation: Dress for a nice dinner if you go here and take the bartender's recommendations if you happen to get seated there.

Not bad by any means. A little pricey and only ok service. Nice ambience though. Would give a 3.5 if I could.

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.

Rough night. We had a large group and they refused to split it order so everyone could pay their share with credit. Instead, the manager told us we could only pay with up to 4 cards for larger groups. It was a new policy that they didn't bother to mention when we were made the reservation. We were asked to "figure it out." For a group of people that doesn't meet often, trying to figure out who owes who, or if we can even count on that person to pay us back is a huge hassle. To make things worse, the manager was chewing out the poor waitress about our table. She seemed to be trying her best. The quality of the food seemed to not be as good as usual. The avocado was brown. They were out of some stuff, and they had less vegetarian options then they used to. Not sure if we'll come back again, especially if this 4 credit card policy order group persists. We've been going here with a very large group for several years, and this was quite the disappointment.

I went here for a birthday dinner looking for good sushi, and the food did not disappoint. The highlight was definitely the nigiri, but I also really appreciated that even the simple rolls (salmon, spicy tuna, avocado) were fresh and delicious. I felt like the staff, while pleasant, were not quite as attentive as I would like, but that's a small quibble, especially given the restaurant was busy. Overall we had a wonderful dinner at a very reasonable price.

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.

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.
