“Great Food & Drink, but Boring Atmosphere”

Masu Sushi & Robata
Ranked #37 of 77 Restaurants in Apple Valley
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 December 2017

We visited on a busy December Sunday & no one else came in--we had the whole place to ourselves for our entire visit!(?) This should be an excellent location - right off Cedar Avenue in the heart of Apple Valley, near one of the busiest Caribous (& Buffalo Wild Wings) in the Twin Cities, and just steps from a train station stop.
The restaurant is small, but the décor is clean, neat and attractive. Perhaps they should strive to advertise more? I have never seen it advertised even once - just recognized it from the Mall of America location, which everyone seems to know about… (How about a coupon in a mailer - like most other restaurants do around here)?
Service was okay, but it was easy to tell the workers were bored to tears with almost no business.
Sushi offerings are delicious, fresh and colorful.
Good selection of wine, beer, sake. Prices are a little on the high side: Osaka, which is just down the street, has just as fresh and wonderful sushi offerings, but they are more reasonably-priced.

After 3 visits I am rating this a 3. They have fresh fish but often have a very limited selection. Plus they use too much sauce. Roll selections are limited and a little too out there for my husband. I just think they could offer some better options.

The pork belly steam buns are great and offered at a discount during happy hour.

The prices are also too high. Rolls are more expensive than other sushi restaurants but also smaller in size.

If they offered a better deal and more variety we would eat there often.

Great ambience! Artistically done decor.
And food to relish for a long long time.

Ordered veg spring rolls and it was the best I have had in he US!
Edamame was superb and the Yaki Soba was yummylicious and came with a dollop of Mayo!

The best part: They have a separate Vegetarian Menu with amazing options!

Hubby loves all his non veg stuff and he couldn't stop raving about it!

Will be back at Masu soon

Service was great! The food not so great. Great interior. Very well decorated and we had high hopes for some great Japanese food south of Twin Cities .

We have eaten at the Masu restaurant in the Mall of America and enjoyed it so we decided to eat at their new space in Apple Valley. It is the same setting and menu. As we've come to expect the service is very friendly and helpful. They have a good selection to choose from and everything we've eaten has been well prepared and very tasty. They have a great saki list with tasting flights available.

It's not fine dining but it is good and enjoyable and we will go back.
