3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

I've been to Masa twice for dinner. The first evening we ordered the sushi, and were very happy with our rolls. I very much enjoyed their shrimp tempura roll. The second evening we ordered ramen and udon. Our bowls were filling, not small of skimpy on the portions. The service was not the fastest, but everyone was pleasant. The interior... More

Consistently good sushi. Have you noticed some places are serving chopped up fish? Not here! Very tender and fresh. BYOB. For non-sushi eaters, the hibachi dinners are very tasty, without the embarrassing trite show.

Kids wanted sushi and I wanted a bento box meal for dinner. Very different from the outside thinking it was not as nice but the space is clean and airy. Food was pretty good and the tea was nice.

Stopped here after a day trip to Trenton. Interesting roll choices. The room is basic. The service was fast. The bill was less than expected. We ordered three rolls but it appeared they had a two for one special we were not aware of. Jackpot!

For my birthday dinner, I asked my wife to pick up dinner for us at Masa 8. I had not had food from here in a while and had a taste for sushi; this was a good choice. The restaurant is in the Manors Corner Shopping Center in Lawrenceville which has ample parking. The restaurant is not large, but has... More

We have been going to Masa repeatedly for 5 years. The service is always quick and pleasant and the atmosphere nice and quietly reserved. We usually order the Hibatchi dishes. My husband always the Shrimp Hibatchi that offers more large shrimp than any restaurant in the area! I usually have the chicken and or beef with brown rice. We are... More

I think Masa 8 has the best sushi in the area. We do both eat-in and take-out quite frequently. Service is friendly but unobtrusive, and the sushi is very fresh. Hibachi and bento box offerings are also good. The eggplant sandwich appetizer is to die for!

Delicious sushi with very fresh fish. Tried the masa and ninja rolls for take out this past week (first time in the restaurant). The order was ready quickly and was very good. I'll definitely return!

Fresh and a wide variety of food. The owners are terrific people and their staff is very attentive. I can't think of a better Sushi place unless you go into NYC and pay 4x or more the price
