I haven't had Sushi in California for almost 10 years... Since I live in Boca Raton, and was visiting Culver City, I decided to look on open table and see which restaurant looked interesting and inviting.
I really didn't get lucky since this restaurant had some great reviews. It was every bit as good as I anticipated. There were exceptional appetizers that really were so great. I particularly loved the filet mignon appetizer. All the sushi was amazing with the freshest seaweed paper I have ever had. Yum. It really was a great dinner. Next time back in Culver City, I would be sure to return.

K-Zo is a superb place to eat--the japanese american fusion specialties are great. Moreover, the ambience is conducive to conversation and a classy experience.

K-Zo is imo one of LA's finest sushi options. I am always happy to have an opportunity to dine there and tell people about it frequently

We had a birthday dinner here. The venue is nice to look at and the service was good and friendly. The waitress was knowledgeable and helped with our Sake questions.

For the price, the sushi is not up to par. The toro was the biggest disappointment as it came off fishy. When paying $10 a piece, you expect better from this cut. The venue ended up taking it off our bill after we could not even finish it. The rest of the sushi and rolls were mediocre. Not worth the price.

That said, i have friends who swear by this place. Perhaps we went on an off night.

We tried it, since they had great reviews. The food is good, it is extremely busy and it is also very noisy. It is good to go there once in a while, but I do have more favorable Japanese restaurants to go to.

Very unassuming from the outside. I've passed this place many a times but never went in. The quality of fish is superb. Lots of great choices. Wine and beer only though.

The food was horrible. They served us old smelly fish that we sent back. The lotus root chips was stale and seemed days old. I heard the hostess tell our waitress to hurry up our meal because they needed our table after we were only seated for 20 minutes. The tables are so close together and over packed that the wait staff is constantly carrying food over our heads. This place is a disgrace!!!

Great sushi! Fresh, fresh, fresh. Great service. Sushi was tasty, not overly "sauced" as with many other places.
