We wanted to go to a new sushi place so thought we would give this a try. Ordered the large omakase which was delicious, but was very full by the end the last couple plates - which was disappointing because the sushi dish was the second to last one. The food tasted fresh. The waiter made a great sale recommendation and kept up a humorous persona through the dinner. Overall a decent experience and would recommend.

Hands down the freshest sushi I’ve had in DC in a long time. Way better than the overpriced stuff around town.

The sushi tastes fresh, always delicious. Other small plates like the noodles with peanut sauce or the brussel sprouts are also wonderful!

First visit to Washington from London and a colleague recommended Kaz Sushi. It did not disappoint. The service was attentive, but unobtrusive and the advice on what to eat and drink was incredibly helpful. The ambience was great. The Hakkaisan (6oz) sake was light and flavoursome, the Matsutake Soup fragrant and delicious, followed by one of the set sushi and sashimi 9 piece menus - a real treat. Well done Kaz Sushi - do please check this place out.

A classy sushi place. A real haven from the hustle and bustle of the busy street outside. Sushi is consistently good. Elegant surroundings and prompt and courteous service.

The fish is so fresh! It is expensive but well worth it in my opinion. The taste of the sushi is definitely more on the authentic side than it is fusion. If you are huge on fusion style of flavor explosion, this may not be the place for you. This place exceeds more in simplicity and authenticity. Good sushi should not need a lot of flavor embellishments in order to taste good which Kaz Sushi Bistro exemplifies. Do not expect to feel "full" unless you plan to spend a lot of money; this is a great place for providing very good food to the "satiated" level which is just perfect. As for service, just expect it to be slower on the weekend. Unfortunately, I was just in a hurry to pay my bill. I will definitely come back on a more calm day. Go to Kaz Sushi Bistro with patience and enjoy every morsel. :)

Awful experience with maitre'd (he said his name was Mike). Upon checking in, the maitre'd (Mike) said that our reservation did not appear on his computer. I showed him the reservation confirmation on the OpenTable app on my phone. Yet, he continued to challenge whether I had a reservation because the app did not show my name on the reservation. In fact, the app does not show your name on a reservation, presumably because it assumes that the reservation is associated with the owner of the account! I then showed the maitre'd an email confirmation--with my name on it. Still, he challenged the existence of my reservation and asked that I be seated in the waiting area until a table became available. I was fine waiting for a little while, as the restaurant was busy. However, I thought it appropriate to let the maitre d' know that I did not appreciate him telling me that I did not have a reservation when clearly I did. I was so annoyed by the whole incident that we decided to leave the restaurant. Rather than apologizing for his profuse rudeness, the maitre d' encouraged us to leave.

We have been going to Kaz for lunches and dinners since the early 2000s. On every occasion (until now) the food and service have been among the best in DC. This incident has left a bad taste in my mouth. No customer--especially loyal customers--should be treated in this manner.

We went based on a recommendation and I would say the experience even surpassed our expectations. We were a few minutes late for our reservation but were still able to be seated promptly. The service was appropriately attentive and courteous. I was pleasantly surprised to be offered my choice from a beautiful variety of sake cups. The food was all exquisitely prepared and my tasting of sushi and sashimi was some of the best I have had anywhere. I hope to be back soon for an omikase service.

Excellent food and professional, timely service. Everything was delicious, but the sushi portions are a bit small for the price. The crunchy soft shell crab roll was especially good.

Excellent food. Try the Hawaiian walu, which is absolutely succulent. For warm dishes, the Asian style short ribs are superb.
