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.

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.

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!

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!

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)
