Masuya Restaurant is located in a building, which has been designated as a cultural asset, on O’Connell Street in Sydney. This is the same place as the office of Kanematsu Gosho, the pioneer of Australia – Japan trades, was situated in 1980. Masuya Restaurant opened in 1993, then full renovation was implemented in 2006.

The approx. five meters long sushi counter, designed by architect Robert Toland in ‘kabuki red’ with an idea of the stage of kabuki, has since fascinated not only local Australian customers but also various people with different backgrounds.

A showcase displays more than 20 different sushi ingredients everyday including locally produced fish, which is purchased on the day. Other carefully selected ingredients are wagyu beef, free-range pork, and seasonal vegetables. Specially designed tableware of Malcolm Greenwood and tables made of Tasmanian Oak is also creating a great atmosphere. Enjoy your time in this amazing space of hospitality.

    Had a great meal celebrating my son's graduation. Quality of food was great however this was let down by a very noisy table right next to us who'd had too much to drink...

    Was very disappointed with the food. It looked great on the pictures but the taste left a bit to desire. Oysters gave me the impression of get five and for the sixth one we need to charge you extra let’s be pitty. Beef carpaccio, pork and wagyu was great disappointment. However sashimi and sushi were good. However,the service was very good. If someone has ever experienced Japanese cuisine this restaurant would truly disappoint.

    Excellent service. Sashimi excellent, wagyu beef very good. Decor average to bland. No wall decor but mirrors everywhere. So, ambience could be improved dramatically especially considering its underground and windowless location.

    We dined at Masuya last night for the first time. The sashimi boat was outstanding and the best I’ve experienced in Sydney. Our waiter Nicky also went above and beyond. I cannot wait for the next visit to Masuya.
