The wait in line was worth it. The food was superb. Standouts included the Yakitori, shrimp burger, shrimp pancakes, Kalbi beef, salmon belly with salad, and even the rice balls were awesome. If you don't mind waiting in line and sitting in a tight, cramped space - you're in for a wonderful meal. Enjoy!

After a short wait outside our party of 3 was seated in a very small table in one of the tightest restaurants I have ever been in. However, it just added to the atmosphere. The food was awesome! In addition to their innovative menu, they have plenty of daily/fresh items. We ordered the eggplant dip and the onigiri rice balls as appetizers, and then had the shrimp burger, the 48 hour pork bowl, and the vegetable bowl as our mains. Overall, good value!

The restaurant needs a bit of repair, including replacing the flooring and fixing up the bathroom.

Love their food. This was my second visit, and they don't disappoint. I would go back to Kazu. The food is tastey and they have vegetarian options.

We passed this place one evening and joined the queue. We left after 5 minutes because we hadn't eaten all day and really couldn't wait.

We returned the next night. We waited 15 minutes before we got it. It's a nice feature that they bring out the menus for you to read as it means less time messing around with your decision when you get inside.

The service was friendly and highly efficient - even though it doesn't seat more than 20 people, it didn't feel a rushed experience. I had the shrimp burger and it was absolutely amazing.

I was intimidated at first by the line of people waiting for a table but didn’t have to wait long. The food comes out very quickly so the tables turn over quickly. Very friendly staff and many vegetarian options. Tiny place though with limited seating. I had the tuna/salmon bowl and it was amazing!
