Exquisite food and service, the 20 course meal fine dining in Sushi Masato totally match its price tag.
Sushi Masato is tucked away into a side Soi, an eponymous traditional sushi bar with an idyllic ambience serving one omakase. Chef Shimizu’s amazing knife skills, excellent balance on sushi, simple but well-executed and artful preparation of various dishes, highlights the freshest fish and premium seasonal produce with the pristine ingredients and perfect presentation that won him a Michelin award in New York years back is still intact.
MUST TRY: Signature dish, anago (sea eel) from Tsushima Island, Japan, is the best you can get anywhere. As well; uni (sea urchin) and fresh ikura (red salmon roe).
A handful of seats are consciously placed along the L-shaped counter and a display case of fresh appetising fish creates a satisfactory atmosphere while the chef slices fish behind the counter genuinely explaining his art to diners with enthusiasm and passion. There are only 10 seats at the counter which serves up to 20 guests in two sittings in the Zen style decorated restaurant.
The staffs are attentive, polite, knowledgeable and friendly.
The omakase 20-course meal including appetizers and 2 deserts. Every dish is innovative and a pure delight. Apart from the exquisite fresh and delicately made tasty sushi, there are also other starters like grilled/marinated fish. Ebi sushi, monkfish liver and tamago is another delectable piece served in Masato as well as Otoro, monkfish liver, and iwa kagi rock oysters with mozuku seaweed and ponzu complemented by selected wines.
