Exceptional sushi and small plates - world class, no question about it. 2 visits spaced 15 years apart, and the quality remains top notch.
Very disappointing. Staff unprofessional. Food tasteless and sometimes shifty looking sea urchin that I had to return.
Not legit Japanese food and dish portion is too small.
My wife and my first time here but we came at our dining companion’s recommendation. What a great recommendation! Friendly, attentive service paired with superb food. Visually beautiful and taste to match. The soy braised sea bass was outstanding. Sushi and sashimi were superb. Definitely will be back.
This is our go to restaurant for birthdays. The food is always outstanding. The service was pleasant but slower than usual but that s not the restaurant’ s fault due to nationwide difficulties in hiring. The noise level is pleasantly low so that you can have a conversation. The only surprise this time was the price…. About $100 over what the three of us would normally spend and we did not eat more.
Best in town. However, one key item Hamachi, seems to be missing from the menu.
We had Brussels, jicama salad, hanger steak, and sushi/shashimi tasting menu. Eveything was delicious! Sushi just melted in your mouth.
A great, reasonably affordable sushi spot in downtown with a simple ambiance and delicious food and drink options
Didn't live up to the expectations that one might have formed based on the reading of online reviews. Okay Indian food but far short of spectacular.
Kaz used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Washington when wenlived here some years ago and we were anxious to try it again when we visited. It was just as good as we remembered. We had a delicious meal of sushi and sashimi and plan to eat there again the night before we fly back to the Netherlands.
The food here is excellent and consistent. A great place.
We visit Kaz for the short ribs and sushi!
Quality and presentation of food was equivalent to being in Japan.
Amazing sushi! Some of the best in the area. Many options for gluten free diners.
The sushi and sashimi were incredibly delicious and fresh. Anybody who says that all raw fish is the same has not been to Kaz Sushi Bistro or other high quality sushi restaurant.
The sushi is always consistently fantastic. Service very good; but this time, of the many I times I have come to Kaz, the background music was loud "Japanese rap' or something and it was not really appropriate to the setting.
Very fresh and delicious. Assistance in sake selection was very appreciated. Loved it.
The food and service was excellent. However, given that they don’t have outdoor seating, and the area is pretty constrained, I would have hoped they would require proof of vaccination.
Excellent meal. The sushi was superb. The sake sampler was fun.
Sushi was outstanding! Service was slow (they were focused on to go orders) and Restaurant was very warm.
Delightful, tasty, and an experience. KAZ is the best sushi spot in DC. I'm looking forward to their sushi bar being open again and Omakasi back on the menu.
Food was excellent the ambulance was wonderful
The best Sushi restaurant in DC. It is actually owned and operated by a Japanese and Korean.
Kaz provided wonderful delicious food and excellent service. Thanks for a wonderful time .
The waitstaff took a while to come take our order and forgot to deliver one of our rolls. Overall the food was okay, but would not go out of our way to dine in here again.
Kaz is located on a nondescript street, the start of a mundane meal. Several seating options not ideal in cramped space, possibly due to Covid. Sake flights were fun. Grilled avocado was delicious. Nigiri was uninspired. Plenty of other choices in DC.
Sitting too close to the next table. Everything else is fine.
As usual, as it has been for the past 20 years, Kaz's place had excellent sushi. It was the first time I had ever had his sushi rolls, and they were superb.
The salmon in gazpacho appetizer was innovative and delicious.
My favorite sushi resto in DC.
Love this restaurant - best kept sushi secret in DC!
Best sushi in town. Great value compared to the other famous places.
Excellent food and service. Everything well explained and very good environment.
Love the toro and waloo! Lovely sake selection as well. Great quality fish for a reasonable price.
Great customer service and there's a variety of sushi here.
Real japanese food!
Very good menu and great choice of sakes...
The restaurant was wonderful. Food and service were excellent. We could have a great time.
Kaz remains consistently good year after year, decade after decade. The space is intimate, in fact this was the first time we sat next to folks like we always did in the pre-pandemic times. We started with a fantastic sake based cocktail and enjoyed two of their specials for appetizers, one was an amazing sashimi dish (sorry forgot the fish) and the other a full order of soft shell crab. The crab was lightly coated and fried, but did not feel heavy. After that we moved on to several pieces of nigiri and a roll. Keep in mind that the rolls here are more traditional, smaller, rolls as opposed to the monster rolls seen at many places. The nigiri were well presented and melted in your mouth the way they are supposed to. While sushi is not an inexpensive meal, somehow Kaz has kept its price for quality low. It may not be the new trendy place, it may not be in the same building as the hotel of the former President who's name we shall not speak...but Kaz just keeps creating fantastic dining year after year. Enjoy.
Excellent service and food. Sushi was so fresh.
Great sushi! Truly authentic in taste and preparation!
