Good sushi

This place has good sushi and is conveniently located off of pearl st. We have eaten here a couple times and the service is always spot on, consistent and friendly.

Easily compete with fine sushi restaurants in NYC -- fresh, innovative, excellent quality and presentation

I've been eating sushi in Boulder (and around the world) for the last 35 years and this is by far the most horrible and expensive I have ever had! The restaurant was not full (on a Friday night) and we thought we had placed our order, but 30 minutes later, still nothing. Once they finally served us, it was barely... More

The restaurant was at one end of Pearl Street Pedestrian Mall. We had spent over 2 hours inside the shops up the street. We first saw the sign "no Public Rest Area inside" at the entrance of this quite large restaurant and thought?? But it serve drinks and have a bar. We decided to give it a try, rather than... More

I read through the reviews and was surprised to read that some thought it pricey. If you want cheap sushi, go get a California roll at the grocery store. Kasa - umbrella in Japanese - is a classy place. The yakatori 'bbqer' was brought from Japan. It started out as a yakatori place but the Boulder crowd didn't have a... More

Kasa is by far the best Japanese Restaurant in Boulder. We ate dinner here in June with three visitors from Japan. The Chef trained at the top Japanese restaurant in NYC and he is superb. Our visitors liked that the Chef & the owner spent time talking with them in Japanese. The food is out of this world. Excellent service.... More

Located off of Perl street, Kasa is a great spot to stop for lunch or dinner. It's usually not too difficult to get a table, and there are a number of options for food. Both the sushi and more standard plates are great. The service itself is consistent and friendly if not quite fantastic. Although not cheap, it is an... More

We stopped here after a CU Boulder tour and had a great lunch. Love the ambiance and the service was excellent. I had the bibimbab which did not have the usual spinach but instead had mixed salad greens but it was very good anyway. My son had a lunch combo (sushi) and it was very good - fresh was the... More

Dark, quiet and elegant, Kasa is one of those uber hip sushi bars that serves up fabulous sushi at equally fabulous prices. Had dinner here with my son one Friday evening, one cocktail and a few good rolls of sushi, with miso soup - and with tip it set us back $140. To be fair, this was some of the... More
