Great Japanese food, good value

We enjoyed the "banquet" - good mixture of dishes, all well presented. All of the fish items were very fresh & delicious. Service was very good - sensitive & attentive but not over-the-top. We were asked if we wanted next course immediately or after a break. The warm saki was just right with the... read more

Firstly let me just say I am not a big fan of eating out and don't do it very often and indeed this review is not about the restaurant experience but purely just about the food I bought a couple of days ago take away. I have bought take away here several times since moving to Mornington and each time... More

Poor decorum , poor service , very over priced , better of buying sushi in the shopping center, better and a third of the price.Staff seem very in interested in customer service although happy to help you swipe your bank card , possibly take the cash from you back pocket . Never again .

We love this restaurant and come here regularly. The food is great and for a very good price. And it's BYO for wine which these days is unusual!

What a beautiful interior and atmosphere, shame the food doesn't match the polish of the aesthetics. We were visiting Mornington and had been told Kazu was the best Japanese place to visit, we had eaten at the other (excellent) Japanese place a few days before (I wont name them here but you can find another review from me on them)...

My partner and I visited the restaurant mid-week and I have nothing negative to say about the place...I only wish I could afford to eat there every week! We ordered Gyoza, Zuke Maguro, Special Tempura, Tonkatsu and Sukiyaki. Every bit of it was devine and was brought out nicely spaced without us having to wait long between each dish. The... More

My husband and I truly enjoyed the sushi boat. Fresh, delicious and reasonably priced...we found it was terrific value. It was so filling that it was all we ordered. Sadly, the service was not a highlight. We were the very first table sat promptly at 6pm. The one girl that looked after us was very snappy from the get-go. Seemed... More

My family of four love this place. One of the best restuarants on the Mornington peninsula. The miso soup is one of the best I've had. The gyoza are perfectly steamed then pan fried. We always get the sushi/sashimi boat that feeds four. The boat consist of tuna, salmon, prawn, squid, and white fish. It is a bit pricey but... More

Our bill for two adults and two kids (who had just an entre each) was $175. This included a bottle of wine ($30). I felt it was quite expensive as there is almost nothing on the menu other than sushi that is gluten free and so we adults mainly had just sushi and sashimi. It's raw fish. I mean, really!... More

Very nice friday evening dinner. Service was attentive and friendly, food was good. Tempura was generous and cooked well. Sushi and sashimi was likewise generous and well presented.
