Stopped while traveling through. Stopped for the Sushi & wasn't disappointed. The rice used in all of their rolls & individual pieces, however, took a little getting used to as it was unusually sticky (?). i've eaten alot of sushi & never experienced rice this sticky, it tasted just fine, but took a couple bites to get used to. Nice... More

We go to Massaki at least once a week just to satisfy our sushi cravings. We are never disappointed. The hibachi is also terrific but the sushi.....ohhhhh the sushi. OK gotta go get some now.😆

We had Massa recommended by the motel and it was a good meal. I am allergic to shellfish and they were very accommodating and cooked my food in the back. It was a nice little show with a large portion of food.

Massaki's is a fabulous establishment. Nathan runs the place with genuine Japanese fun. The chefs are entertaining and it's a show and great food. All staff is polite and well groomed and it's a delight from the front doors because the sushi guys are always happy and smiling. Fun for the whole family.

Food can also be prepared in their kitchen and served at a regular table. This last one would be my preference because I am always afraid that I would be singed by the... More

The price is better than the "other" hibachi style restaurant in the area. They don't make you pay extra for fried rice and the favors are amazing
