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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Good food. Tables are placed very close to each other. So no privacy. Other tables were commenting and interacting with us way too much and I feel it’s because of how close we are. Staff and food was great. White wines were bad.

Awesome, awesome sushi place. Would highly recommend. They offer either hand rolls ("temaki") or cut sushi rolls ("maki") for each of the roll items on the menu, and the fish is always fresh and delicious.

We were here a few years ago and had a better experience then. Agedashi tofu has a strange, gelatinous coating, not crispy. Interesting tomato sushi. Japon drink is way too tart to finish. Service is slow, but probably just a pandemic staff shortage issue.
