Firstly we arrived on time and the table wasn’t ready for another 15 minutes. They made us wait outside in the cold because there’s literally no space inside. We waiting 40 minutes just to order drinks. We called the waitress twice trying to order, she acknowledged us calling from far but still didn’t come to take the order until the third call.. tables who arrived after us already had their drinks and we were still waiting. We wanted to order a mix of sushi where the chef decides the combination. But I don’t eat spicy food, so we asked the waitress is she could notify the chef to do anything but spicy. She said no because “he decides based on the price of the food”. This explanation didn’t make any sense to us. She didn’t try to help in any way. Anyway the food comes and we realise that everyone around apart from us had little plates.. it was impossible to ask for them, given that the waitress was not even looking at us. At the end of all this, the bill was over £100 and we decided to not pay for service charge given the very poor service we received. At which point the waitress called her manager who came and attacked us saying that nobody has complained and that we weren’t being nice. He said that this is a challenging time for restaurants etc.. anyway we told him “the service charge is optional, it’s not like we are not paying for the food”… Worst service I ever received probably.. wouldn’t recommend!

And have always enjoyed the food. This time I felt a bit ripped off. It was January, and lunchtime, so sparkling water and a Jasmin tea. We ordered what we considered a fair amount of a la carte sushi, wanting to spoil ourselves and knowing we are greedy. The waiter, who felt like he was selling the whole time (unusual in a Japanese restaurant) insisted we didn't have enough and encouraged us to get an extra speciality role (at £20) . He was hinting we should order more, but we said we would see as to us (and we are pretty experienced) this seemed like plenty. The sashimi is gorgeous, and we enjoyed the spicy tuna rolls and the California rolls. But the Kazu rolls were a disappointment, especially the Charlotte which we we most looking forward too. It was drowned in a yellow lemon sauce, described as a yuzo miso dressing, that was rich and overpowered the delicate sushi beneath. The Unagi was better, but still too much, and didn't do justice to the rolls. We actually left some of the Kazu rolls behind, which is unheard of for us. Even after we were clearly done the waiter tried to get us to order desert. And then the bill came to £135 which considering we had no alcohol and this was meant to be a lovely quality light lunch, felt cynically high. I would go back, but I would stick to the classics and the sets, and not let myself be persuaded to go otherwise.

The waitress on arrival (to an empty restaurant) was already unusually pushy for us to get our order in. We’d barely sat down! Throughout the meal she continued to say we should get our order in before other guests - including for desert as the next diner would be here soon. We’d spent just over 1hr here - so weren’t even dragging out the booking. At the end she continued to bring us the bill before we’d asked. Very much trying to get rid of us as soon as we arrived - very unusual! Overall, the food was excellent here. Customer experience needs improvement though!

We had the Sashmi selection which was amazing - fresh, high quality and tasty - the Mackerel was exceptional. We at at the counter so we can see the friendly Sushi Chef preparing everyone's dishes . We also went in November to a party in the downstairs private room which we didn't know was there. Again Top quality food and service so ideal for a private gathering.

The service was slow, so I’d suggest ordering everything at the same time up front. Your patience will be rewarded though, as this is a great restaurant I’m excited to return to.

We were told ‘we are very busy, pls order everything you want NOW!’ repeatedly that we found very uncomfortable. We were given only 90 minutes to finish our dinner. We wished we had been warned this before we went there, especially NOT for special occasions. Overall we’ve found the restaurant was disappointing, probably won’t go there again. In addition, inside is very small therefore the under current circumstances we didn’t feel safe at all.

I would understand if the restaurant was busy but it was no more than 1/3 full and seemingly plenty of tables free. It was a real shame as we wanted to stay longer but without a request we had our bill placed on the table and that was that. Poor business as we would have stayed and hold have paid more money!

Service initially slow then suddenly everything started to happen. The ambience is relaxed and appealing and we really enjoyed it until about 9-9.30pm when it suddenly became very cold and we definitely got the impression they wanted to close and for us to leave, which we did (it was a Sunday and perhaps they close early..)

To be fair to them I prefer classic Japanese and it wasn’t ideal for my palate. Also I’ve been to other fusion Japanese in a similar price bracket which I would choose over Kazu. My biggest issue at this restaurant was that they tried to oversell. Elsewhere I would have happily ordered more once I knew the food is on par. I think this restaurant is definitely not one I will return to sadly. Good food does not need to be oversold. I rest my case.
