This is an outstanding sushi restaurant, and easily one of the best restaurants in NOTL. The sushi chef is skilled and creative and the staff are attentive. Now that Masaki has appeared on a couple of Toronto "best of" lists, the diners have shifted a little from locals and tourists to include hipsters on a mission. All good.

As someone who has been to japan, my sister and I are always trying to find authentic Japanese restaurants that transport us. This is one of those places and we would go back a second time.

Service was not very prompt. Our main course was very slow - over 30 minutes with no explanation at first (they explained and sent over a complimentary appetizer) to produce the special sashimi we ordered. It was excellent. We were seated close to another table with animated conversation - not a particularly romantic setting but quite authentic. I would go again for the food quality - but would also tell them if I had a show to go to or other deadline.

We usually just order our favourite sushi dishes but I'd decided to go out on a limb and try the 5 course featured dinner for Valentines day. It was too much food for me and a little out of my comfort zone. My wife ordered her favourite sushi and loved it. I would recommend the wine by the glass be an ounce or two larger, and proper wine glasses be used. Service was excellent.

Ventured out in storm with our special quest from LA, California and were thoroughly pleased with absolutely everything. On par with the best Japanese restaurants found in Vancouver or LA. While our review on service and noise level is highly a result of only one other couple in the entire restaurant, I feel I would certainly be patient on slower service if they were extremely busy as the food is well worth the wait.

Love authentic Japanese cuisine! What I like more is that the seating and atmosphere is upscale great for a night out with friends or a loved one. Yet the pricing is reasonable, and the food is fresh, and they do not forgo ingredients.

Phenomenal quality and service! Tried the Masaki roll and sashimi dinner and both were wonderful - it was so nice to try different kinds of sashimi we’d never had before. They were out of a few things because we came just after the holidays so we’re excited to come back next time we’re in the area so we can try the premium sashimi and oysters. Our server was very knowledgeable and lovely as well.

Best Sushi ever, premium fish from Tokyo, they hand grind their own wasabi, the rice is different, the green tea ice cream was not bitter like usual, the server even explains what the dish is and what everything is. Amazing place, if you think Mine sushi is the best... Your gonna have a good time here

A real gem in the heart of Niagara. The sushi looked excellent but I had the beef udon special and my husband the beef curry special because it was freezing outside and we needed to warm up. The beef udon stock was excellent and a reasonable quantity but the beef itself was chopped into tiny little bits and although it was supposed to be tenderloin, they were a bit chewy. Same issue with the beef curry. However, we will definitely be back to sample other items on the menu, because the basis of a good Japanese restaurant was definitely there. We also found it rather expensive but then again, so is everything in NOTL! Service was wonderful.

This was our fifth time dinning at Masaki. Their quality of fish never disappoints me and we were especially lucky last night as a new shipment just arrived from Japan! My mom is a picky eater and she gave the assorted seafood in a hot stone pot on rice a perfect 10/10. Server was vey attentive and patient with our questions. Will definitely come back again!
