Of all of my attempts to find a decent sushi place in the Phoenix East Valley, this one paid off. I have yet to find another sushi restaurant that has the same freshness, distinct flavors and sushi-deliciousness that Masa Sushi has. The value and top-notch service I've received here truly make it a gem of a place that Yelpers like me are thrilled to discover and share.
I love the fact that even before you order you are greeted with chilled iceberg lettuce salad (with a fabulous soy vinaigrette) and delicious hot miso soup. The list of rolls available is extensive. My dining partners and I have gravitated towards the Monkey Ball roll as an appetizer. That's a mushroom, spicy tuna, and cream cheese that is battered and deep fried and served with a delicious creamy sauce.
Try the simpler forms of sushi (sashimi, nigiri) to see how fresh and buttery and delicious the fish here is. I have recently started investigating their Happy Hour combos, and was very pleased with their spicy one (the name of which escapes me). This must've been a promotional or new combo. It was featured on the menu and on banners draped inside the store, but I haven't spotted it on their website yet. All I know is that I had wonderful bites that included spicy-tuna stuffed jalapeno "poppers", a salmon-centric roll, and Kiss of Fire (inside: spicy tuna, jalapeno, crab stick and cucumber; outside: white tuna). All of this washes down perfectly with a nice dry Japanese beer like Asahi.
The dessert (standard with your order) is great fun too. Fresh mandarin oranges, thin sliced apples, caramel sauce, whipped cream and Pocky! You can't beat this place for the price, selection or the quality of the sushi. And it's in Gilbert... who'da thunk it!
