Kaz Sushi Bistro was good, not great. My husband and I brought 2 out-of-town guests here for a Saturday evening dinner. This place seemed to top a lot of the lists, so we made the reservation. Upon arriving, we were shocked by how quiet it was. SO quiet. No type of buzz in the atmosphere or background music at all - we felt like everyone could hear everything we said at our table. We were also surprised that they don't offer any signature rolls - just all standard rolls, which were good, but we were imagining something a little bit 'more'. Guess I should have looked more closely at the menu. They also do not have a standard full bar - but the lychee martini and the sake mojito were delicious so would definitely recommend those. Our server was a bit pushy but brought us drink samples once we realized they did not have a full bar. Overall, it was a fine experience, but don't think I'll be bringing guests back due to the lack of ambiance and (in our opinion) limited sushi and bar menus.

I don't mind paying a little extra to eat a full meal for sushi, and Kaz Sushi delivered some of the best quality fish I've ever had. I had their sampler 009, a salmon avocado roll, and an additional order of two nigiri and one sashimi. All were incredibly fresh, there wasn't a smothering of sauces to cover up the sweetness of the fish, and the cuts were resilient -- no stale meat falling apart as you picked up the filet.

The restaurant practiced social distancing quite well, closing half the tables in order to allow groups to sit at least six feet apart. Service wasn't available whenever I finished one plate, but the extra pause did give me time to digest and consider my next portion. Noise can travel in the restaurant, but the quality of the fish and mutes any agitation.

Kaz is potentially my favorite sushi restaurant in the country -- price is not exorbitant and the quality is phenomenal.

Our waiter (Hari H, I believe) was efficient and friendly and helpful. The sake was delicious, Sashimi moriawase tender and fresh - in other words, it was perfection .

A very nice dining experience even for a required reduced capacity COVID experience in this cozy sized dining room. Restaurant patron separation and staff interaction offered a safe distance and inviting atmosphere. Food was delicious and highlights were the Unadon Bento Box, salmon sushi roll with avocado and side of Brussels sprouts. Highly recommended.

As always, excellent service. The sushi 009, which my wife and I ordered, featured fresh, well-selected fish and imaginative presentation. The appetizers were also as usual, well-prepared and creative. My wife chose the monkfish tempura, which is a must have whenever they have it: crisp but lightly cooked. We have been to Kaz Sushi Bistro many times, and it never disappoints.

My husband and I were in DC for a quick weekend trip. We found this on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We both had the $90 chef tasting menu and added our own saké. Great variety on the dishes we were served and everything was fresh and tasty. Great service and quiet. A lot of families with kids were there too. Highly recommended!

The food was excellent, our server made recommendations for small hot plates, sushi and dessert when we asked and we loved everything we had. The sake flight was fun too. Best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever had.

We love the food at Kaz. We had yet another great dinner this past Saturday. The only negative was the service. In the past it has been top notch and absolutely attentive. On Saturday our waiter seemed to be overburdened or scattered and his service suffered. We will still go back because the food is so good and we usually have amazing wait staff.

The best sushi restaurant in DC, in my opinion. We go back at least twice a year for special occasions. The waiter (Henry?) was attentive and discreet. The food excellent. Just a pleasure to revisit. Only the purse suffers :-)

Hanger steak appetizer is perfect every time; cooked exactly med-rare and so flavorful. All of the nigiri was fantastic. Specialty nigiri is so well cut and garnished creatively for additional flavor. The seared salmon belly is a must have along with the fatty tuna options (we got chu-toro.) Service is always so lovely! All are knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive.
