Excellent Japanese restaurant

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!

I love sushi. I've been to a lot of sushi places all over the US and this place had a pretty good offering. Not as good as Sugarfish but still excellent. Nice ambiance, free evening parking in the garage above. Service was fast and efficient.

My husband and I love sushi. We have been to k-zo at least 6 times. Reservations are a must on Friday nights. The sushi is fresh and top notch. There is a wide assortment of appetizers, the eggplant being my favorite. Be warned that while the interior is very trendy and nice, the tables are rather small and cramped. If... More
