Very classy, fresh fish, great lunch!

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... read 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

Kasa has great quality fish and preparation. The dishes are more traditional that you see at other sushi restaurants on the mall. In my opinion less is more when it comes to great sushi. The owners pride themselves on serving the freshest and highest quality fish possible. Service is attentive and friendly. Not cheap but worth it!

We stopped her one sunny day for sushi and had the pleasure of sitting outside. We ordered special rolls and they were so yummy. The restaurant is clean and airy and they must have the cleanest nicest women's bathroom in all of Colorado. The restaurant is pricey but was worth it to us.

This is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful service and delicious food. We were there for lunch and had excellent sushi as well as Bento boxes with Teriyaki Chicken and one with Sesame Chicken. Everything was well-prepared and beautifully plated. The service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Kasa!

Had business lunch with colleagues Japanese food quality was good but portions not too big. Food was quickly out and service was good. Nice and helpful staff. Good option for something different.

I say this is unique because the different fish they get in is not the unusual for the other sushi places in town. Some of the most unique fish are flown in from Tokyo and available for only a week or two. I think their specialty is having some more unusual fish that other place just do not bother with.... More
