A trip to Hood River would not be complete without a visit to the Kaze Japanese restaurant.. Great food, friendly people, nice atmosphere. We ate here with our son's wedding party. So good we returned for two more visits.

Delicious and lovely sushi. Bento box is a family favorite -- lots of food, great value, beautifully presented. Bring your patience...service can be quite slow. But it is worth it if you have the time!

We really enjoyed the stuffed shiitake mushroom special and rainbow sushi roll. We sat outside and had a wonderful view of the river. Service was excellent.

Go for the Japanese food (the sushi was good but Okalani was better). Amazing miso ramen and spicy tofu. Like other reviews about the place, the service is really slow so be prepared to wait.

Ordered tempura ice cream. Waited 30 minutes and it came melted and a pool of cream. We nicely sent it back and waited another 20 minutes and finally walked out. What a disappointment.

Kazi is open again after some months away. This small place can get crowded, but the food is beautiful and delicious, with great attention to details. Miso soup a welcome sight on a cold night, lovely little salad with a huge depth of flavor in the dressing, crisp and light tempura prawns so fresh and sweet, great assortment of veggies,... More

Maybe it was because it was a Tuesday after the Labor Day weekend, but they did not have it together this night. Place does not open until 6 pm, which is odd enough, and they are only open for dinner. Small crowd of folks were waiting outside for them to open, so maybe the kitchen got over whelmed, and our...

Since Toshi doesn't update review sites... Kaze is closed, hopefully temporarily. You can eat his amazing sushi and other dishes at his Beaverton Restaurant, Hakatamon. 3486 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. and Hall . It's in a tiny strip mall behind the Chevron station. If you're a ramen fan, you HAVE to try it!!! I'm dedicated to sashimi at Kaze but... More

I came to this restaurant because a friend recommended it. Unfortunately, the service was awful (I had to ask for a glass of water TWICE, even after my food came) and the sushi was just ok. I know the lady was new but with only three tables filled, she was still totally overwhelmed. I went to Nagomi Sushi the night... More
