Come for happy hour, when they have 1/2 off beer, wine, and sake and Buy one special roll, get one regular roll free.
We’ve dined at Kazu ever since we moved to Jacksonville from Tampa 1 1/2 years ago. We were unhappy leaving Tampa if only for the outstanding sushi restaurant we loved. Thinking Jacksonville could never compete, we inadvertently discovered Kazu &, wow, we became the happiest of campers again. The special rolls that Kazu offers are among the best we have eaten (and in case you can’t guess, we are sushi snobs). Even the regular rolls are excellent as are the various dumpling appetizers. Service is always attentive & responsive. The best, however, is the value. From 4:30-6 pm every day of the week, you get 1 free (regular) roll for every special roll purchased. If you have not yet tried Kazu, you are missing out on great sushi.
Best sushi in town. Love the poke bowl. F
Sushi is always so fresh!
Don't know why it took us this long to try this place. Oh..out of desperation for good sushi which is non existant on tne beach side of Jax. THE best sushi in Jax! Totally worth the 30 minute drive from the beach. Uni with quail egg! Everything fresh and well presented - simple and yummy. Lots of unusual combinations of rolls which was refreshing instead of the same old rolls. Good selection of sake and the service was excellent. Will definitely be back, too bad they are not at the beach.
1 word. UNREAL
Best sushi in town
This is by far the best sushi restaurant in the greater Jacksonville area!
Birthday dinner. Food, service and setting were good but not impressive.
More food than I could handle. Very good. Only problem is that food does not come out hot. I find this with many Japanese Restaurants but not so with Chinese restaurants. Interesting.
A great neighborhood spot for weekly dining! Always good, fresh sushi!
Excellent sushi with good service and prices. Extensive menu. Good option for Japanese in Jax
Excellent Crusine, almost like being in Japan. Fish was extremely fresh
We had a fantastic dining experience at Kazu celebrating a friend’s pregnancy! They were kind enough to accommodate our large group and the service and food were excellent. We will definitely be returning! Thank you Kazu!
Had sushi for 2 with the snow maiden sake. Will be going back! Must try!
We found Kazu on the top 50 restaurants around Jacksonville list. It’s a great date night restaurant with nice ambiance, good drinks and good sushi!
We tried this place on a busy Monday night. The place was crowded but there were still a few tables available. We ordered the sushi for two and it did not disappoint. Service seemed a bit spotty. Our server was sweet and friendly, but we sat for a while before she came to the table and asked if anyone had taken our drink order. She quickly apologized for the delay and took both our drink and dinner orders. Drinks came out quickly followed by the salad with ginger dressing and the miso soup. Once we were done with that, we again sat for a while before she came back and collected the dishes and asked if we wanted another beer. Sushi arrived shortly after the second beer and it was very fresh and delicious! Will return.
Amazing Valentine's Day Dinner, quite and relaxing. Our food was to die for, we had a good time and we will be back.
Disappointed that I was charged for my meal when the table next to us dropped their sauce and it got in my food!
It’s was pretty good. Not the best but, better than the average sushi place.
The sushi is always very fresh and well presented. Love the Spring Citrus Salmon app, always amazing!
Kazu is the best sushi in Jacksonville. The service is excellent, where they know you when you come in. The sushi is honestly wonderful and by far the best in Jacksonville. When we take visiting guests here they always love it. The wine list is good as well as the saki selections. Make a reservation because it is in high demand.
Food quality was good but too much sauce on chicken dish and too much breading on tempura. Very attentive wait staff, comfortable dining room. Sushi was very good.
This was our best visit here ever. Live uni (sea urchin) and also o-toro (fatty tuna) - both virtually unavailable in the Jacksonville area anywhere else - were both awesomely fresh and tasty. The sashimi that I had, the rolls that my daughter ate and the meal that my wife had were all excellent. There is a good selection of cold sake and the service, even though it was crowded, was excellent. I have not found a better sushi restaurant in NE Florida.
We have eaten at Kazu a number of times, and it is consistently a great experience. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Love, love, love Kazu.
Best sushi and sashimi, I drive from Richmond, Virginia to eat at Kazu.
David is the BEST!!!!
By far the best sushi in Jacksonville. Don't waste your time going anywhere else. David, the owner, is a great guy and runs a fantastic restaurant that makes great sushi. Continues to be our go to place!
This restaurant is rated very high on several websites however I was a bit disappointed. The tempura was over battered. The beauty of Japanese tempura is light breading, crunchy, light, not greasy, and tasty vegetables or what every in in the inside. We had the Soft Shell Crab tempura and tempura vegetables. Everything tasted the same, thick batter. We had the sushi and sashimi for two. The sushi rice was warm. I've never had warm rice in sushi. It did not go well with the cold fish. All the fish was sliced much thiner than the sushi at other restaurants around town. Miso Soup had little to no tofu, which I like in my Miso Soup. Ginger salad was average.
Not saying this was bad, just saying it doesn't stand out as led to believe in the reviews.
If you LOVE sushi then Kazu is where you want to be!!
I believe it was the manager who was yelling at our waitress for not cleaning the dishes on the table next to us when people were still eating off of them. She was trying to explain that to him and he just kept yelling at her in front of my table. It was unnecessary when she was doing an OUTSTANDING job with all of her tables. That is the only reason my overall review was not 5 stars.
We always enjoy eating at Kazu. It's a top quality restaurant, very close to our home. Food is consistently very good.
Very good sushi
Great service & food - definitely recommend this place for great sushi!
Excellent food. Wait staff appears disorganized. Messed up order
Kazu is really the best sushi in Jacksonville. The service is so friendly and quick. It's a new favorite spot.
Consistently good sushi. Service is very friendly and fast. Chef/owner always willing to make recommendations or discuss sake options.
This was the 3rd time we'd been and the food is consistently great. However, on this occasion (Monday night), our server was horrible. We'd have to flag her down multiple times just to get a refill or order food. She had to pass our table every time she went to the kitchen but she made a point to hurry by or not make eye contact. She was super fast and close by when it came to our $120 bill though. I wish I remembered her name because she needs to be retrained.
This was our second time eating here and the sushi is amazing. Very fresh and they have a great variety. The severs are very friendly and prompt. We love this place.
Always excellent food. Great service. They treat us like family. Spoiled for all other sushi!
Very good sushi. Would definitely go back.
