Dad's over from Hong Kong for the next 2 weeks, to celebrate his arrival and my new job I took my family out to dinner at Masuya. Instead of writing a review again I'm just going to cheat a little by posting a comment I made to Bosco a few weeks ago.
The Masuya restaurant is owned by the same people who run Makoto and Musashi with these two restaurants giving off a more relxed and casual feel.
Masuya on the other hand is more restaurant like - the good thing being that it is very affordable. Entrees start at $12-16 and mains start from around $18?The Sushi and Sashimi is standard and presentation is good. A must try is their Japanese style 'steam boat' where instead of a clear broth they use a soy bean milk as base, it's very heavy and texture is a bit like a laska soup. It looked interesting and tasted pretty good.
Suprisingly a lot of the people that frequent is Japanese, so if they are able to fill the tables with some of the biggest critics then they must be doing something right. A must try if you haven't done so already. Do make sure you book because the place gets very busy!
They have quite a big selection of Mocktails, but my Pina Colada was a little strange must be Japanese style
Eel Bow Sushi$14.80, Tuna & Avocado Salad$8.80
Sashimi Boat $56
Sapporo Hot Pot $23 per person -Because the waitress served us, I didn't get to take a photo before she placed most of the items (crab, mussels, fish) into the soya bean milk soup. A very interesting twist on the usual Asian steamboat.
