Pretty good authentic Japanese cuisine

I'm picky with Japanese food and I'm happy to say that I was totally satisfied with what we ate. I was scared a bit at first, there were no Japanese folks dining, but this definitely wasn't an indication of an anglesised menu. Woohoo! The menu has pictures of the meals next to them so if you're not... read more

Kazu was recommended highly to us - and we have been delighted everytime we've visited. The specials board is a great lead - the salmon sashimi/avocado/wasabi mayonnaise is to die for, wasabi prawns and seafood pancake equally delicious. Service is attentive, ambiance lovely - a wonderful experience!

Beautiful calm atmosphere. They were friendly and very willing to fit us in, even though they had full bookings coming in soon after we got there. We promised to eat quickly and the service was amazingly fast. Presentation of the food was simple and the taste was delightful. Very vegetarian friendly. The restaurant is down a little lane between other... More

Four of us went for dinner. Nice setting. Unfortunately we waited nearly an hour to be served and half an hour to get our meal. Waitress was short tempered and lacked any expertise. Food was expensive and average. Could of been so much better.

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 meal. Price was very reasonable. The... More

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 .
