Neither would go back not recommend to others to dine because of very rude customer services.
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.
Outstanding ingredients, nice ambience.
Fresh sushi and shashimi. Tight schedule so staff accommodated our time constraints. Very friendly and attentive wait staff. Good value. Thumbs up and would definitely go again and recommend to others.
Our favorite sushi place in DC. Very good fish and creative other dishes.
Loved the flexibility of the management when an additional person joined our party. Thank you. Also enjoyed specialities like the live scallop & and the birds nest (ika, uni, quail egg, shiso leaf, seaweed). Great variety of hot and cold items.
This is our regular sushi spot, which we find better than Sushi Taro based on fish quality and sushi dishes. That in no way means that Taro is bad. In fact, it’s excellent as well and aesthetically more pleasing.
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
While the quality and uniqueness of some of the sushi offerings was very good, the portion size of the fish plus the very high prices make this restaurant a poor value.
The service from the staff was very good, but did not offset the high prices.
Food was good but not outstanding. Service was great . Atmosphere average .
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!
Cool place, excellent service and creative menu. Choose what you want or opt for one of the tastings. Sushi delicious. Sake shooter with uni and quail egg a must try
Pleasant restaurant,good service but poor value. Have had much better sushi for half of the price
Excellent on all counts
Wonderful sushi and service.
What a beautiful meal. Take your time. Savor each and every morsel. The walu, smoked monkfish liver pate, salmon belly small plate were favorites.
Kaz consistently maintains high standards. Its sushi is excellent and the fish always fresh. We love to sit at the sushi bar and watch the chefs create innovative dishes.
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!
In one word: PERFECT...
We will come again!
A bit expensive but worth it.
Too pricey for the food served. Ordered a Bento, a sushi platter, o toro, two makis and two other side dished costed me almost $200. Wrong choice for celebration.
We were visiting DC and remembered our previous dinning experience a year before. My husband and I had to make this one of first dinning stops. Recommended it to family and friends visiting DC. (We are from Long Island, NY)
Kaz was great as usual. The fish is extremely fresh, the staff is wonderful & they have a terrific Sake menu. Try to sit at the Sushi Bar so you can watch the guys make all the food.
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.
Amazing Sushi in the heart of DC! Excellent service and options, even saki flights.
Inventive, tasty small plates and great sushi and rolls. Our server was friendly and helpful. We will return.
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.
High quality Japanese (best we have found in DC), with warm, friendly and knowledgeable service.
BEst sushi I’ve ever had and I’ve eaten a lot of sushi!!!
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!
