“Best lunch in Solana Beach”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

My wife and i are wintering in SB this year to be able to spend time with my son and his family,and to get our 12 yr old granddaughter to stay with us every weekend.
Nadia is a sushi fan, and my wife and I were fortunate enuf to have lived in Tokyo for a couple years back in the 80s. we love Japanese food and have eaten it all around the world.
we first ate in Masuo in 2002 when we last wintered in Solana Beach. it had just opened but was an authentic hit with us from day one. this year Masuos is still rocking along, but is now being run by the original owner's sister and her hisband. Two very charming and friendly folks.
this year, one of their $9 lunch specials is the bento box combo. You can have sushi and tempura (my favorite), or grilled salmon and tempura (wife's favorite) or a third i can't remember and never ordered. Fresh ingredients, made to order and served immediately when ready.
riding along Hwy 101, you could easily miss it (small store front) so dial in your GPS and give it a try - you won't regret it.

This has been our favorite place for a number of years. The service is alwasy pleasant and accommodating. Be sure to try the specialty rolls. The back room is a great setting, particulary the "tiki tree" table! We highly recommend...
