“Set Menu - Oishii!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Went there on Saturday night with a group of friends for a bday dinner. Ordered the set menu and was extremely satisfied. Delicious food, awesome staff (this makes a lot of the difference), service was great, friendly and prompt. Nice funky surroundings.

This one is a winner. Definitely going there again!

“Best Japanese ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

We just had the most divine Japanese food I have ever had, we chose the restaurant on the reviews we had read on trip advisor and had previously thought we would try a different Japanese restaurant we had been to previously. I am so glad we chose Kuza, it will be on our must dine at restaurants whenever we visit Perth.

“Excellent. Highly recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

We loved our meal here. It was something a little different. The service was excellent and there was a good sake menu to choose from. The food is a bit like tapas style and that makes it really nice as you can taste a few different things. The sushi is excellent. This is definitely worth a visit.

“A standout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

This restaurant had a favourable review in the local paper by a writer whose views I often find somewhat odd. Perhaps it's the writing style. Kuza is in a busy street surrounded by many other eating establishments. Yet on a hot Friday afternoon, it was easily the most crowded on the strip. The ramen offerings seemed to be popular as were the sushi dishes on the menu. We were curious about the gurnard ceviche, slices of gunard in a piquant sauce topped with a dried goji berry. This was nicely flavoured and had just the right amount of bite to it. How a restaurant does beef tataki is a good test of its kitchen. Kuza's wagyu beef tartaki did not disappoint. The Kuza pork bun set featured slices of lightly seasoned braised belly pork between Chinese steamed bread (mantou) and some greens. The dish came with some deep fried sliced arrowroot which was a nice accompaniment for the pork buns, which were tasty. Kuza has a decent range of sake and wines. Prices were reasonable and even cheap when compared with other eateries service similar food.

“Fabulous, different food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Having just moved to the eastern suburbs, we decided to try one of the Vic Pk restaurants. I had seen this reviewed by Rob Broadfield in the West and he raved about the food, but was unimpressed by the decor.
I completely concur with his review - the menu is extensive with lots of different sounding, mostly tapas type food. The food was excellent - we had four dishes and the pick was the pork belly. The majority of the patrons on the night we were there were Japanese (mostly young)...always a good sign!
The atmosphere and decor wasn't to our taste and, because there are no soft furnishings it was very noisy.
The cocktails were OK and the wine list fairly small, but prices were reasonable.
Overall we were impressed with the price ($137 for four dishes, two cocktails and a bottle of wine) and the food and will be back to try something different.
