Fun night out planned, starting with a feed for 10, at the restaurant before the crowds but even that couldn’t help the kitchen get it right. Meals came out all over the place, 2 missed, waited until rest of us had finished before one meal...More

We are sorry for your experience with us. And thank you for your honest feed back. We had investigated what happened on that night and there was some miscommunication at the result of short staffing and unexpected volume of take away order. We will try...More

We have visited Kazu on several occasions, lured there by the promise of something that could be great. For a start, serving the 'boats' of sushi and sashimi is a great idea for those who just want the chef to take over the decision making...More

This pleasant little restaurant is a delight to patronise...one of our family's favourite spots to eat. The decor is very "Japanese", with oriental fans, kimonos and prints on the walls. The service is excellent and the place is suitable for intimate dinners for two, or...More

Visited Kazu for a birthday party. The food was delicious and fresh. I found it catered well for our whole family. We had a large selection of the food and there was no complaint. The service was also very good.

We tend to go to Kazu to celebrate a special occasion such as an anniversary or birthday but we should come back more often. The food is consistently good and the prices show great value. It is always hard to choose because everything we try,...More
