Food is descent, but menus are dirty, which makes me wonder about the staff and the kitchen, and service is S L O W and non-attentive. Would really like to love this place, but too many red flags.

Toshi, the owner, is from South Japan. Whichever type of sushi preparation is your favorite, you will have a masterpiece. Every time without fail. He prepares your plate in front of you, or if it's cooked, in the kitchen right behind him. The restaurant overlooks...More

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.
