I have been coming back to this place for a few years now. Anything you order is DELICIOUS! Small resto and the best place to sit is at the bar side to watch the kitchen and Chef Owner Kazu in action. Amazing staff and quick service. You will be blown away at this izakaya resto. Closed on Tuesdays and the... More

Liked the shrimp burger here. They had a special sauce in it which made it all the more tasty. Went all the way to this place to try out their shrimp burgers but reached just when they were closing it. They were kind enough to give me a to go.

The place is always full, you have to wait outside for a seat at the bar or a table. Not romantic, not comfortable but a gustative experience! At night I take out, you by pass the line to go to the cash register and order. Then go outside for 15 to 20 minutes get your order and go home with... More

Amazing food in a little restaurant close to the business district with dedicated servers. Come at the opening if you want to avoid the line.

I have heard of this restaurant a couple of months ago. Tried to visit but it does have some oddly opening hours... check first. It is a very small restaurant with a limited number of seats, in fact there is often more people waiting outside, BUT you won't mind the wait for the quality of food inside. There is a... More

If you are craving for some Japanese dish Kazu is the place to go! But make sure you go there as soon as they open. If not, you'll be stuck waiting in line. This place is really small that is why there is always a line up. They are also closed on Tuesdays. I've been to this place more than... More

The verdict... very good food, I had the beef and it was really good ... was it worth the price ... not sure but it was good. If you can seat at the counter and watch... More

Food here is well done. We lined up in the rain for 20 minutes before able to find a seat. Once we got in, we checked out the prices and it was definitely inflated compared to Toronto or Vancouver. The food was alright, and they put a lot of focus on their presentation......I guess that's where the premium is at...........4/5... More

I read about Kazu in a guidebook, so I was warned that a line would formed when it opened. As luck would have it, we were the last two admitted for the first set of seats in this small hole in the wall. We were at the bar so we could watch the preparation of the food. I was awed... More
