Let me first state that this is a "Fine Dining" restaurant.
It is definitely not a typical Japanese franchise chain which serves mass produced Japanese lookalike food!
What you get here is very similar to those of the real fine dining Japanese Restaurants like the old Unkai in Singapore or those in Japan.
The salmon sashimi is perfect, the miso is flavourful (not those you get from instant sachets) The sake collection is also amazing!!
A simple way to gauge how real and authentic the food here is, is to look at the number of very please and satisfied Japanese (probably expats and/or tourist). I guess they are the best judge for the food themselves.
Service is top notch, with really team of service staff. Atmosphere...hmmm.... makes me wonder if i'm really in Japan.....
On a whole, I just can't praise this place enough, and will definitely make it a point to return to Batam even just to visit this restaurant!!
Please note again that this is a FINE DINING Restaurant, so don't be surprised that they charge in Singapore Dollar and you can't possibly pay in Rupiah to justify the quality of the food. Even then the food are really way cheaper than many chain franchise Japanese outlets. To be fair, Kazu should not even be made into comparison with likes of IchiBan-Boshi, Sakae or Sushi Tei.... They are not even close.
I believe many who have been here would agree that this place definitely deserves Michelin Star ratings!!
