As of July 7 2021, this event has sold out. 

“Restaurant life is a passion for flavour and a dedication to detail” says chef and restaurateur Nic Watt of MASU. 

After graduating as a chef, Nic spent time in Japan where his love for the cuisine and its traditions began. He has since amassed a wealth of experience in a highly revered career, particularly in Japanese robata restaurants the likes of Michelin starred Nobu, and London’s award-winning Roka.

Following his return to New Zealand, Nic Watt opened MASU and introduced a contemporary take on traditional Japanese robata cooking to the local dining scene. His culinary philosophy is simple – each dish is a standout on its own and still a perfect complement to the other dishes on the menu. 

For this very exclusive Chef’s Table dinner, Nic invites guests to dine around the robata grill and watch as he and the MASU grill team take absolute care to prepare dishes for the evening. The repeated basting and turning of skewers, along with the gentle sizzle and ember coals creates theatre that will excite and awaken the senses. The ambience and process of the robata is just as important as the eating and for this night diners are welcomed to a five-course dinner prepared at the robata grill of MASU.
