“Late Dinner and Drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Awesome fusion restaurant with late dinner hours. We had really good sushi, appetizers (pork belly sliders, mmmmmm!), and main course. Drinks were good and strong. We'd definitely go back.

“Brilliant. Just brilliant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

Dropped in with a group of 9 after a visit to the brewery just for some tasting dishes. Stayed all night and tasted just about everything. It was a Sunday night and the happy hour prices made all very happy.

Food was tremendous. Did not have a bad mouthful all night - except maybe the sake bombs which we probably did not need...

My favourite were the pulled pork buns. But also fantastic were the oysters, brisket buns, chicken skewers, xxx chicken wings, spicy and non-spicy edamame beans, the tempura vegetable rice rolls and the s'mores desserts.

Cocktails were also great, especially the Tokio Mule.

Server was extremely patient with us and a lot of fun. We had a great time. Loved the original Godzilla movies on a loop.

“Love it! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

You can make reservations there and in OTR that's a big thing!

We had sushi at the sushi bar area. Everything the server suggested was amazing. The wines were great too.

We didn't see the rest of the restaurant.

The service was great on all levels.

“Wonderful, delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My boyfriend and I came to KaZe for a date. He'd been interested in trying a new place, and I love sushi. We made a reservation and and arrived about a half hour early. We were escorted to a back bar area, which was well decorated and interesting. There was also an outdoor bar, but that was more crowded so we stayed inside. The bartender was attentive and well versed in the restaurant's signature drinks, and promptly at our reservation time a hostess came to get us. We were seated in a cozy booth for dinner.
We decided to do an assortment of sushi and other small plates instead of a main entree, and ordered all of them in pairings, pretty much at one time. Our waitress was flawless in the delivery, and we never found ourselves wondering when our food would arrive. We opted for a bottle of white wine instead of sake, which paired well with our food choices.
We wanted for nothing and were able to focus only on each other, which was wonderful. I'd go back in heartbeat. Excellent.

“Creative menu, wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

First off, the server we had, Kristopher, was impeccable. He remembered how to split the menu items and drinks of our group of five, and was really attentive and helpful. The place is wonderfully designed and maintained. The half rolls are big enough, and the combinations are great. Good rinks, wonderful food, and awesome atmosphere. Just an amazing experience.
