I actually only heard about Kaza Japanese Steakhouse when a friend invited me there for a birthday dinner. It's a good experience but while the Hibachi chefs can be fun I'd stick to sushi. The food was not that great from the grill especially the fried rice. But scallops were done to perfection. However, I enjoyed the atmosphere, the sushi... More

Kaze is a great place to eat and we had a good time with family. I always love a good show and the cooks do entertain. The food was a little bit too greasy and too much soy sauce was used, but it was still good. We also ordered sushi with our meal and it was delicious. A good alternative... More

This is the best hibachi steakhouse in the Garner, Smithfield, Clayton area. The hibachi food is good and so is the sushi and tempura. It is a fun way to have dinner with friends. The hibachi cooks always give a good show.

This was our second visit in the past few months and we had a delicious dinner prepared and served by skillful chefs! While we are accustomed to the presentation, we are sure that the first timers will definitely enjoy the performance by their personal chef! We ordered the dinner for two with steak, shrimps and chicken. The food was cooked... More

My daughter and I went to lunch here today. The food was very good the service was very good. I highly recommend their firecracker crab meat stuffed shrimp appetizer. I had the hibachi steak and shrimp. My daughter had the hibachi steak and chicken. Both were extremely good.

When we can get seated and served we can't complain about the food .. it's good. The issue is that they are understaffed (or that's what it seems to be) the majority of the time (especially on Sunday evenings) and the wait can be very long .. even when you can see many open clean tables.

Came here with my family for a work Christmas party. Although the wait was 1 hour over what was initially described to us, the food and drinks were excellent. This ended up being a good location for the xmas party as the staff was very pleasant and professional. Like any successful Hibachi restaurant, the chefs were excellent keeping everyone engaged...

We went to Kaze on a Wed, night. Waited 20 mins. to be seated and then another 15 mins. for cook to show up. It was my husband birthday and we wanted a fun night out. However, the cook didn't even talk to anyone at the table. He just cooked, cleaned and left. The table next to us was having... More

Four for dinner. Waiter was excellent and took exceptional care to make sure our drink glasses were filled. Our Japanese cook (from Columbia!!) was completely entertaining and cooked everything to perfection. Best Hibachi style in years here, especially seeing the horrid time we had at a Japanese place closer to home. This was an excellent meal. Sushi was great. Summer... More
