When I worked in Corning, Bento Ya Masako was one of my regular places to eat lunch. We just called it "the Japanese lady" because the food is cooked right in front of you by Masako-san, the proprietress. Tasty and healthy, traditional choices.. mmm.. good...More

Wish I could give this place a better rating because the food was fantastic. But you have to close your eyes at the cleanliness of the place. The kitchen is open for all to see and it is a disgrace. The box holding the chopsticks...More

When I worked in Corning years ago this was our place to go. It is still my place to go, nothing has changed in 20 years, the food is still very reasonable and super tasty. The owner goes out of her way always to accommodate...More

This is the most authentic Japanese restaurant that you'll find in Corning. The hours are strange because the owner shops at the markets only on certain days. The place can be closed for weeks when the owner goes overseas. The place looks like a loft...More

Love Masako's bento lunches. I am a local and pick up lunch on a warm, sunny day and eat it outdoors in Centerway Square. I honestly have yet to find something I don't like at Masako's.

One of my ultimate and long-time favorite places to eat on Market Street. The owner is so kind and she makes the best tempura! Highly recommend this local gem!

This is Japanese food like an office worker in Tokyo would eat: good, simple and very affordable. Nothing fancy. You order and pick up your (free!) tea at the counter, and most people bus their own plates. Everything we tried was tasty and portions were...More

Really good authentic Japanese lunch place. The place is cash-only and pretty small, so make sure to come 10-15min before noon to get a table. But it does worth it, the food is delicious. A nice energizing cup of green tea is included with lunch....More
