Very good japanese food

If you want something different in a nice place, go there. The food is very good, the service very friendly, the tea excellent! Culver City parking (above Trader Joe's) is free for 3 hours. I was a liitle disappointed by the desserts that are are just classics.

Visited this restaurant for the first time recently on a Saturday night. (Reservations on Open Table are a good idea unless you're willing to sit wherever they squish you in. The place is smallish.) We asked the server for recommendations and glad we took them to heart. Food is sushi-ish -- inventive and tasty. Our favorite was the salmon/burrata salad.... More

I brought some of my family from Philadelphia. A couple had eaten here before and my sister had not. The quality and tastes by Keizo are incredible. Delicious, fresh, and amazing sauces that Keizo adds. It makes it hard to eat Japanese food at other places. We had the live scallops. It was served sashimi style and then the rest... More

K-ZO offers some of the best Japanese cuisine in LA. From the seaweed salad to the clam soup, sushi, and grilled fish, a pure delight with innovative twists. Highly recommended

It has been a long time since I have been wowed by a sushi meal. This restaurant was exceptional. The menu was imaginative . . . none of the ho-hum items at typical sushi places. The fish was fresh and delicious. The accompanying sauces were perfectly matched to the fish. The garnishes were gorgeous. The salmon burrata special was amazing... More

Very good food, nice presentation, all fresh and tasty. A little short on quantity, so do not go with a big appetite...

On a romantic night out, we shared the Bamboo Course ($58), the hot sake "Koshi Kanbai" and one serving of salmon sashimi. The course began with six tiny appetizers, some with two contrasting flavors neither of us had ever had before (e.g., monk fish liver and a fried sliver of lotus root) that combined amazingly. One item was poorly seasoned,... More

first of all, do NOT confuse this place with Sushi Zo. totally different worlds, people. we've been here a few times and it's been consistent: the sushi is fine, but nothing phenomenal. we've wondered if that's because the menu tries to be all things to all people -- want sushi? sure! want ribeye steak? we got that too! we have...

One great item after another with incredibly fresh fish! Interesting creative menu. Everything we've had is terrific! Lots of great sushi in LA, but don't miss K-ZO. It will become your favorite!
