Excellent dinner and preparation.

Four for dinner. Waiter was excellent and took exceptional care to make sure our drink glasses were filled. Our Japanese cook (from Columbia!!) was completely entertaining and cooked everything to perfection. Best Hibachi style in years here, especially seeing the horrid time we had at a... read more

We went to Kaze on a Wed, night. Waited 20 mins. to be seated and then another 15 mins. for cook to show up. It was my husband birthday and we wanted a fun night out. However, the cook didn't even talk to anyone at the table. He just cooked, cleaned and left. The table next to us was having... More

We had the Spider and some other special roll, Anastasia maybe? Anyways, the rolls were just ok, didn't taste very fresh. Waitress was super slow and they were not even busy. I work in Garner and love sushi so I wanted to love this place but it just wasn't good enough for me to go back.

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

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.
