What is it? World-class modern Japanese from an internationally acclaimed chef, minus the intimidating vibe.
Why go? Masu suits anyone who loves Japanese flavours but is open to new interpretations on the theme. The black cod, grilled lamb cutlets and crayfish spicy miso tacos fly out the door. The menu tells you you’re eating high-end Robata-style Japanese sharing plates using the very best of New Zealand produce, but the attentive slick service, huge space and kick-ass fitout – complete with the theatre of a very open kitchen – make you wonder if you’re in New York, London or Melbourne.
