Arrived in Daylesford at 9.15 on a Thursday night and everything was shut. Then we found a little oasis - Kazuki's! We were welcomed with open arms - brilliant service and even better food. The Japanese 'Vegemite' on bread started us off and the stuffed zucchini flowers were a standout. Highly recommended....the waitresses were just fantastic and we will be... More

This restaurant - rated #1 in Daylesford - comes with a hugely positive reputation, and therefore my expectations were sky high. Well, Kazuki's exceeded those expectations by some margin. First of all, a few things that Kazuki's is not. It's not a sushi and sashimi kind of place. There are no chopsticks. In summary, it's not a Japanese restaurant in... More

Lovely setting and staff but the outstanding feature is the food. Wow, every thing we ate was incredible. We shared our plates so were able to taste a variety of dishes. Couldn't fault any of them. Every time you put something in your mouth you just went WOW!

This Restaurant is amazing! The service was faultless as was the food. We normally find the "small serve large plate" not sufficient but Kazuki left us more than satisfied. Absolutely full flavour in every morsel.

We shared our dishes (first time ever) Standout dishes for us were the complimentary brioche rolls with black butter, the scallop ceviche, spanner crab with zucchini flowers and the snapper for main course. We... More
