Kaz Sushi Bistro Ratings and Reviews
The sashimi was very good as always and I LOVE the lemon vodka sorbet on the chocolate marquise dessert. The service wasn't as attentive as usual but it was okay, and also always the cramped quarters made the place noisy. The sea bass was tasty but a little saltier than it needed to be. None of the dishes are very large, here, so the cost tends to add up, but the food is reliably good, and this is a good place to get a light meal, especially to share.
The sashimi was very good and the dessert was excellent (though not very Japanese :-). Also really enjoyed the tempura clams--definitely the upscale version of that dish! We've eaten here several times, and it's always good, and always busy.
This is an oddly shaped building, but it seems very small, and it ends up feeling crowded even when it isn't all that jammed. The acoustics really bounce the noise around instead of deadening it, and some of the tables are rather close together.
Kaz Sushi Bistro has some of the most most fabulous sushi in the DC metro area. But what Kaz offers which others don't is a myriad of non-mainstream and perfectly prepared small dishes and signature sushi. Delectable dishes such as raw calamari thinly sliced over fresh sea urchin with quail egg and spicy green broiled mussels. Chef's signature nigiri includes such luxurious ingredients as foie gras, black truffle and lobster with wasabi mayonnaise. Mix in a simple, yet elegant setting, courteous staff and moderate prices and you find the most reliably delicious and decadent establishment to enjoy sushi.
Small but very pleasant ambience. Staff were friendly and attentive. Excellent selection of sake available. I went for the summer special menu, which was delicious, but was not as impressed with the separate order of tuna sashimi. All ingredients in the nigiri sushi were very fresh, and the dessert of lychee custard with a mango sorbet was very light and refreshing. I highly recommend this place for an intimate, delicous meal!
This place would be a favorite for beginner sushi eaters. There wasn't too much unique outside of their "DC Roll," so if you like sticking to spicy tuna and California rolls, this is your place. The size of the rolls were too small as well. The food wasn't bad tasting, but nothing stood out.
I had seen many high reviews (and also some low ones) for Kaz Sushi Bistro. Unfortunately, I must side with the low ones.
The food was not all that great. I am not a sushi snob, but I have had better sushi from chain grocery stores. The fish was mush, and the rice was not very good. The portion sizes were small for the high price. The service was solid. Nothing they did blew my socks off, but it was solid and friendly.
I will NOT be going back to this sushi place. There are too many other, better options in the DC area.
As they'd say on In Living Color, "Hated it!" The sushi was very basic and almost sub-par. This restaurant is extremely over priced the basic rice and fish roll you were getting and the poor service made the experience even less palitable. I would not recommned this place for sushi or for a good dining experience. You're waaaay better off going to Cafe Asia in Arlington!!! Much better service, excellent drinks, and more creative and tasty sushi experience!!!
Even for Restaurant Week, the sushi was excellent. The desserts were yummy--light, refreshing, and a perfect end to a delicious meal! Our only gripes were that service was indifferent and the setting (tables too close together and the restaurant does little to dress up its drab location) was uninspiring. Come for the food, not the environs.
Food was fine but nothing special. The presentation and service are also fine but really nothing special. The price was rather high for what you get. It is just a moderately good restaurant nothing less nothing more.
No infirmation about the day's special. Of course, we were given the menus.
Although at the time of reservation I mentioned about the dinner being a birthday outing for our son, no one seem to care.
The restaurant is a good place for lunch, not for special occasion.
You have it all at this gem of a Japanese restaurant. If you're out to celebrate, select some of the sushi delights Kaz has created. The servers know what is especially tempting.
If you're hungry and worried about not getting enough to eat, try a Bento box with Asian Tender Short Ribs and a serving of Tempura. Either way you will be delighted.
