I've been there many times and the food is always excellent. Some of my favorites includes the shrimp burger and the salmon/tuna tartare bowl. Expect a lineup if you dont arrive at opening time, but its definitely worth it.

I've been to Kazu a few times and every time I go I enjoy it just as much. Everything on the menu is so different and tasty so you'll never be disappointed. I love being able to watch the chefs make the food right in front of you and the ingredients they use are always fresh and delicious! I had... More

I go to this place very often despite the lineup being 45min+. It's simply the best food I have tasted in Montreal. The Chef-owner is always present and make sure of the freshness, quality of the food and pretty much cooks all the protein. I highly recommend that you try the specials written on the wall and sit at the... More

Very long line to get into this tiny place, but so worth it! Can be a bit pricey but your taste buds will thank you! Wanted to try everything on the menu. Very casual.

The food here was great. It was a Japanese fusion restaurant with a hint of Korean in their food (i.e. Galbi). The store is very tiny and its popularity doesn't help with the never ending line up outside, which more or less puts a bit of a pressure for those dining inside. For any introverts, all those eyes staring right... More

This was one of the best restaurants I have eaten in whether Japanese or other cuisine. Great inventiveness and taste surpassing anything I have experienced in Japan. By any measure, however, this is one I will come back to again and again even if it means as a non-Montrealer coming here more often.

Portions are quite small, therefore expect for about 100$ for two people with only one drink. A lot of wait, but the fresh fish and the dressing is worth the hassle. The homemade ice cream is also great. The lunch menu is although a great way to try it without ruining yourself.

Not often do I wait in line to eat at a restaurant and end up spending less time eating than waiting... It was worth every minute. We pigged out, and left like well fed royalty after a medieval feast! Started out with the dumplings. Perfect griddled crust. The pork was tender and juicy. Bimbap was fantastic. The meat slid off...

Let me start this review by saying had we waited more than 20 mins I would have be very disappointed. The 48 pork was good, but was disappointed in the octopus special. I would recommend stoping by if there is a short line.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
