Love this place, but you must be willing to wait in line or get there 30min. before opening :) It is a hole in the wall restaurant that is famous in these parts, but authentic in inakaya (Japanese pub)style. The owner -- from Japan is in control of his menu & his grill! Originally, he worked alone but lately he... More

This is a little gem if you like Japanese ramen and other typical izakaya food. They have changing menu and i like their ramen, a bit salty but very good. All of the food there is done fresh and taste good. Try the grill fish or squid with Sapporo beer, along with a nice bowl of Ramen there. Space is... More

My husband and I went here our last night after walking by it throughout our stay. I wish we went sooner. We got the Japanese Pancakes and the 48 hr Pork. Both excellent! This had a true hole in the wall feeling and we did wait in line... but it is worth it. We also got a double size of... More

Definitely arrive early - restaurant opens at 5:30pm and there is a queue about 30 minutes before that! We got lucky and got the last two seats in the first round of seating. Definitely crowded but did not hamper our experience. The service was friendly and we did not feel rushed. For the two of us, we had a sushi... More

I had trouble finding good restaurants last time in Montreal .. but eventually I did and this one was one of them .. the food is truly special and wonderful .. place is busy but it creates an intimate atmosphere .. Only thing I suppose is that it can get pretty expensive if you have a bigger appetite .. I... More

There's a line outside this restaurant most of the time, and there is a good reason for that: the food is delicious. I've been there 5 times now and I'll keep going there, as there are still so many delicious things to try/ The beef carpaccio appetizer melts in your mouth and is seasoned to perfection. The tuna and salmon... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to try it out. Waited a long time outside. It is very crowded but my wife and kids felt it was worth it. Had all the food suggested and would definitely go back. It is not a cheap meal but my family enjoyed it!

We thought Kazu was going to be a good deal and good food. We got good food but the serving size was very small so the price wasn't what we thought. We had to spend a lot more money than we thought to be full.

Been here twice in 2 days.. first for dinner and then for lunch. The food here is soooo good and they can be one of the best restaurant in Montreal :) You may need to queue to get a table here but it is worth waiting. The chef and waitress are very friendly!
