Some sushi places may get more recognition, but Kaz is still the best. You won’t be wowed by the decor, but the food and service are always on point.

Always love Kaz Sushi for great quality sushi that is delicious and often inventive. The deserts are also now more interesting - a nice surprise. My husband does not eat sushi and finds the bento boxes to be a nice alternative.

Love Kaz Sushi Bistro!! This was our second visit and it never disappoints. Great menu selections for hot & cold and if you are not 100% comfortable with your sushi knowledge, they offer a really approachable "chefs menu" style groupings that have built in variety with minimal risk. The specials were on point - the black cod was delicious and the bbq eel was perfectly seasoned. Don't miss out on the Brussel sprouts either!!! The service is attentive without overbearing. Quick but not so much that you think they are just waiting to turn the table. Even with a birthday party of 6 beside us and a busy Saturday night, we were able to easily chat and carry a conversation at normal levels. Definitely our "go to" for sushi in DC.

Food was wonderful! Would definitely have zero reservations about recommending this place if all you wanted was great sushi. Ambiance was disappointing as we were out celebrating a friend, and wanted more than an office-like atmosphere. Had we done more research, we would also have discovered that they did not have a liquor license, so we could not get our favorite cocktails. I'd definitely visit again for lunch and dinner-when ambiance and cocktails are a non-issue.

I have been coming to Kaz Sushi Bistro for 10 years and my husband has been following Kaz for the last 20 years when he started with Sushi Ko. We LOVE his sushi and it is hands down our go to sushi place if you want an outstanding meal. Best tasting sushi and ALWAYS THE FRESHEST too. I’ll be coming to Kaz for as long as he makes sushi. Thank you so much for a wonderful meal.

Food was delicious. But portions smaller than expected given price point. If Katz moderated its pricing a little or added a few more pieces to its sampler, this would be a clear 5.
