Kaze is consistently very good!

We go to Kaze (either the Japanese steakhouse part or the sushi bar) about once every 6-8 weeks or so. The steakhouse always has great portions, excellent tastes and of course a great "show". While the sushi is not what I would call awesome (and doesn't have BOGO free like a lot of places) it is... read more

There is nothing positive to say. Hibachi section is noisy, wait staff rushes you and hands you the bill as soon as the last person is served. The food is no different than going to a Chinese take out. The green tea was pathetic. You had to ask for chop sticks. The waiting area is tiny. The facilities need an... More

Don't waste your money! Terrible service, small portions and the food was cold (we don't sit at the grill). We are not "those people" who complain about restaurants, but this was the worst experience I've ever had. Waitstaff posed as management until they finally admitted there was no manager on duty (after blatantly insulting us). Sad to see the decline... More

My family really enjoys going to Kaze. They do an excellent job with the food. It is always delicious and they serve large portions, which usually mean you get another meal out of it later. I have been impressed with the wait staff. We generally bypass the grill show for the sushi bar dining area. Food is just as good... More

We've been twice; once in the dining room and once in the bar. We love the good, but wanted more privacy, so we chose the bar instead of the dining area. The bar is small and quickly became crowded with young professionals, drinking and hollering. Not a place for families. We ordered the same food in the bar as we... More

The food is wonderful and the presentation is fun. A hit with both adults and children. Definitely the best Hibachi in the area!

Our special occassion place, the food is always fantastic and a fun show. Great service too even with large groups, they accomodate well. Even on very busy nights, wait never seems too long and the cooks seem to enjoy performing as much as we enjoy the show.

We went to Kaze around 9pm on a Saturday and we were greeted and immediately seated. The host did an excellent job and anticipated our every need. Drinks were brought immediately and the sushi was excellent. The hibachi was on par with other hibachi style restaurants. We ordered the chicken and filet mignon and split it. There is a charge...

Great place to go for Japanese. Not fast food at all. Be prepared to sit a while and enjoy the show. They cook in front of you with lots of comedy. You get to meet other people as they have 10 seats at one table. The food is always good and you get lots of it!! Everyone is very friendly... More
