A true hidden gem!! Sushi Masa is undoubtedly one of THE BEST SUSHI RESTAURANTS IN JAKARTA!! It is located hidden in Pelabuhan Perikanan Samudera Nizam Zachman, Muara Baru, a huge fish market and harbour in North Jakarta.
Located in an uncommon you will never imagine there’s a nice fancy looking Japanese restaurant in the middle of fish market/ harbour.
Known for their great quality and fresh ingredients, Sushi Masa opens for lunch and dinner time from Tuesday to Sunday (11.30-14.00 & 18.00-22.00), the restaurant is always fully packed with loyal customers including us.
In recent years, AnakJajan have visited Sushi Masa repeatedly for many times and it remains one of our most favorite restaurants in town, every time we got question about best sushi restaurant in Jakarta, Sushi Masa always comes in our mind.
Going to the restaurant is a bit tricky, you will need to drive all way through the long Muara Baru street and then pay entrance fee IDR 2k at Muara Baru Market gate, but we can say that it’s worth the drive.
FYI, Sushi Masa has recently opened new brand called Nama Sushi by Sushi Masa https://anakjajan.com/2016/01/18/nama-sushi-by-sushi-masa-baywalk-mall-jakarta/ , well both are equally nice, if you’re looking for quality go to Sushi Masa, but if you prefer more affordable sushi go to Nama Sushi.
On the same building under the restaurant, there’s a small supermarket selling many unique imported Japanese snacks as well as fresh and frozen seafood.
Salmon Sashimi IDR 12k/pcs, Salmon Belly Sashimi IDR 35k/pc
Look at the sexy shiny fresh cut of sashimi!! The quality of their sashimi is undoubtedly good with thick generous cut, both Salmon and Salmon Belly are our favorite, shiny and fresh, super yummeh!
Beef Aburi Sushi IDR 35k/pc
One of the must order here in Sushi Masa, nigiri sushi topped with aburi or torch-grilled beef! The beef aburi is super tender and soft, it melts in the mouth with uber delicious grilled aroma, one is never enough!
Salmon Sushi IDR 12k/pc
We just love the generous cut of salmon with just the right amount of sushi rice. FYI, Ocha is provided for free (refill)
Spicy Salmon Hanaroll IDR 70k
Another favorite one, sushi rolled with salmon and then topped with minced spicy salmon and spicy mayo. It’s soft and creamy with melt-in-the-mouth texture.
Ehire IDR 50k
Ehire or dried ray fin is another favorite dish, served grilled with mayo on side, it’s a perfect drinking companion, chewy and savory with pleasant grilled aroma.
Salmon Donburi Set IDR 120k
Powerful set of rice bowl with well seasoned sushi rice and generous cut of fresh salmon. Yumzieee!
Garlic Rice IDR 40k
It looks simple, but the taste is incredibly addictive! Peppery yet garlicky altogether.
Beef Hobayaki IDR 110k
Hoba Yaki is the signature cooking style from Kobe area by using Hoba leaf lies beneath the meat and cooked over charcoal grill resulting a tender and aromatic beef.
Ume Inari/Inari/Ocha Inari/Apple Inari IDR 15k/pc
The colorful unari sushi with unique flavors caught AnakJajan’s attention, unfortunately we don’t fancy the taste, the classic original one is still the best.
Mentai Salmon Aburi Sushi IDR 20k/pc
Since we love salmon sooo much, we usually order a lot of salmon-based sushi including this one Mentai Salmon Aburi Sushi. Nigiri sushi topped with aburi or torch-grilled salmon and mentai sauce. The mentai sauce gives the sushi a nice creamy savory taste without overpowering. Love it!
Overall, amazing quality, incredibly tasty creations, reasonable price, the only drawback would be the location is quite tricky to reach, other than that AnakJajan gotta say that Sushi Masa is a true hidden gem that all Japanese food lovers especially sushi lovers must try!
