Quick and good

Been here a few times. The service is always friendly and really quick. Ive had about 10 different items on their menu. Only thing is i find the food to be a little too salty.

Great vibe to this place. My fiancé and I had a hankering for ramen and this didn't disappoint. Served within 10 minutes!

I almost never wait at a restaurant but my 40 minute wait was rewarded with some of the best Japanese food I've ever had. Highly recommend the shrimp and tuna bowl. The carpaccio starter was also excellent. Awesome food and excellent friendly service. Just don't go expecting a fancy ambience.

I was pleasantly surprised by this Japanese izakaya in Montreal. The shrimp burger was very good, although it had a lot of mayo. The pork cheek was one of the best, as well as the eggplant. The yakitori was sold. And the salad was very good. Portions are large but prices add up. Small place and they rush you, so... More

Just a great place and good fresh food. I loved the saumon plate and I recommend it, but everything looks good. Everybody is nice, and the wait is not so long.

i was attracted to Kazu as it was the only restaurant which consistently has a line up to get in...the service in the small/tiny restaurant is superb so the line up goes quickly...typically 10-15 minutes. Don't plan a formal meal, there are few tables, but a good counter. A variety of interesting Japanese dishes are prepared fresh and served in... More

Finally had the opportunity to have lunch at the great restaurant. It was absolutely delicious in every possible way. Service was fantastic. Highly recommend this restaurant. Tip: Arrive about 15 minutes before it opens and line-up.

I love this place! I have been there a couple of times! The atmosphere and decor seems to be traditional to a certain degree. The dishes are prepared fast and are excellent! I have only had good dining experiences going there.

Had a great experience at this place tonight. The food was tasty, the portions are small and for the small portion that it is may be a bit overpriced. Most special items were around $15, with items price range from $10 to $28 as far as I saw on the walls. Very happy with the experience will go back there... More

I managed to get in to this place in its heyday a few years back and it was MINT! I went yesterday and it was a shadow of its former self. Grimy, tired, overpriced. Dirty bowls, people preparing food and handling menus and money at the same time. Gloopy ramen. It felt like arriving at a party to late where... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
