I have been to this restaurant before and the food was good. The décor and dirty menus were not very pleasing a few years ago but they have cleaned up with new menus and different seating arrangements. We had a $25 Groupon so we made a reservation as it stated on the conditions for use. There was one person doing... More

We went here with a groupon and after reading some other reviews we were a bit wary. We decided to give it a try anyway and it was ... ok. We called for reservations for 6:30 and was told - no ... all filled up ... how about 7:00? That worked for us so we went for it. However the... More

Well, I didn't read the fine print on the Groupon about making reservations so we just appeared one weekday night at about 6 pm. The place was EMPTY but the very young and shy waitress told us we couldn't stay because we had no reservation. However, when we got up to leave she said the boss wasn't around and let... More

This was a groupon for two. Our miso soup arrived cold. We sent it back and it arrived slightly warmer. Not sure what it was flavoured with rice wine or vinegar or ??? but we couldn't eat it. The two rolls were plain and nondescript and the tempura was saturated in oil that wouldn't absorb into a paper napkin. The... More

My friend and I shared a 4 course meal: miso soup each, shared tempura, 2 different shared sushi, green tea and mango ice cream for dessert. The cost was very reasonable, the service was fast and the food was all good.

This is a difficult restaurant to review. The food is good and certainly inexpensive, especially with the Groupon. The young servers are all pleasant but not well-trained and the atmosphere is just so so. The miso soup arrived cold but was immediately replaced. The salad I ordered was not available (steamed spinach) but I was not made aware of that... More

Kaz is advertised as one of Victoria's few late night places. On their website is says they are open until midnight on weekends, and weekdays until 11pm. My partner finishes work generally quite late so we have little opportunities to go out for dinner on anniversaries. When he finished at 10pm on our anniversary on Friday night I thought it... More
