Me and my family visit the place to taste the sushi, and it was very worth it. Though the price is not cheap but the quality is quite high.

Sushi was not bad but not as good as I thought. If you are traveling with kids and granny, this place is nice and comfy. But if I just travel with my partner, I would go somewhere else with better price and quality and more local.

It was a Monday with freezing cold weather and not many tourists around . First we thought we were lucky as we found the car park was quite empty. The INSTANT moment we entered into the restaurant,... More

Masazushi is a mid-range sushi place. Their ikasoumen (squid cut into thin slices, famous in Hokkaido) and their salmon roe and sea urchin donburi is good. Their nigiri-sushi is also quite good with a high ratio of fish to rice. It is located right across the canal with a great view from the second floor.

I was there a year ago; I think this restaurant provides simple Japanese food; however, what makes it different from others is quality of the material used in every single dish.

The restaurant just rests near the Otaru canal and we stopped there for an early dinner so that there was no need to wait. We ordered 3 sets of meals with sushi, sashimi, tempura and some side dishes. The set meal costs around 3000Yen on average, however it just tasted ordinary. I was expecting more for that price. Honestly speaking,... More

There's a carpark beneath the restaurant. Handy when it's raining. Freshest taste with a kid's menu. Maybe give the kid's menu a miss as they will really enjoy the salmon roe on rice.

We stopped here for a late lunch on a port stop on our cruise. This was our first stop in Japan and we were glad we came to this restaurant. Went to the top of the stairs, and tried to figure out the door (westerners may not be familiar as we were not yet with having to touch a door... More
