Kaz Sushi Bistro Ratings and Reviews
This was the most delicious, special omakase sushi tasting. We received exceptional service from Chef Nao. He delivered course after course of the most amazing and creative dishes. He was very professional and personable. We love sushi and Japanese food, and this was our favorite dining experience ever.
We try to get to Kaz' as often as possible and the food never fails to satisfy. Kaz' is not the largest place for sure, but I believe that adds to the ambiance. We love the way Kaz takes very foundational sushi choices and has turned them into taste treats...tuna with truffle, scallops with lemon and salt. The best part is seeing what special fish Kaz has on hand each visit. In almost every place you go, you will find yellowtail...but Kaz had yellowtail belly and it was fantastic. The sake list has expanded since our last visit and that is very welcome. In my opinion, there are very few places I have ever been that compete with the fish that Kaz puts out there. It is creative, artistic and fun. Definitely our DC favorite
Kaz has been a long-time favorite, and I think one of the true hidden gems of the Washington, DC dining scene. Known for the genius and fabulous creations by Chef Kaz, the sushi hands-down beats other sushi finds in DC. (And I keep looking!) The prices are reasonable, the quality of fish, meat and produce are top notch, and the service is excellent. Recommend sitting at the sushi bar for a fun peek into the "kitchen." Bravo, Kaz!
It was very quiet when i arrived at 9pm (on a Saturday). The host/manager announced he was about to close for the night soon, as it was a slow night. Staff was friendly, but I didn't like the fact i was being rushed out. The food was good, but it did put a damper on my experience. I expected a more high-end establishment based on ratings
Kaz Sushi Bistro is probably the best and most creative high end sushi restaurant in the greater Washington DC region. The chef's choices were spectacular with good variety and wonderful combinations of flavors. The chef came to the table to discuss specific food allergies to make sure our individual needs were met. Dinner at Kaz Sushi Bistro was an extraordinary experience. We will be back!
Kaz Sushi has quite a bit of innovative sushi, with truffle, with olives, etc. which we didn't eat but some may want to do so. Their conventional dishes are well enough prepared, if not stellar. Flights of sake are nicely presented and well priced for those wishing to taste several different types.
Kaz used to be the go to place for -- if not trendy and buzzy -- excellent sushi. The lights are turned up, the seating has improved and the sushi has gone down hill. The special 'shrimp ball soup' tasted like a pasted up ball of leftovers. My husband's seaweed salad was piled high on Safeway grade iceberg. Ouch. Hope it gets back on the horse, as it is a schlep to go downtown after business hours.
We hadn’t had a great sushi in a while, and Kaz made us realize what we had been missing. We tried a sushi sampler, leaving our adventure to the Chef’s discretion, and loved the flavor explosion that followed. We appreciated the simplistic decor, and soft ambience that made our dinner about the food and each other. And the green tea tiramisu was a great treat!
Kaz Sushi is an excellent sushi place, of course they also have all other sushi-related food available. They have the "classic" sushi, but they also have quite some new dishes with great taste combinations that are not really sushi, even so they are excellent! If you like seafood, try Kaz Sushi.
Really enjoyed all that we ordered, tasting menu 9, hangar steak, Norwegian sea bass were all superb. Service was fine and ambiance was relatively casual. Things get expensive quickly but seem reasonable if you want the best food experience.
We definitely would like to come again and bring our kids too.
