If you choose Kazu, you can eat sushi or Thai dishes such as pad thai, chicken with basil or one of several curries; a filling Japanese udon noodle soup topped with tempura and served in a clay pot, or a tasty, classic wonton soup. In other words, there are lots of choices. The setting is casual, with both booths and... More

The sushi is amazing and definitely worth the time and money. As the only place in Shepherdstown to get sushi , if it's something you are interested in I recommend you try the shrimp tempura sushi. Really good food and family-friendly. The food is definitely Oriental, so it may not be very kid friendly if your kid is a chicken... More

This is one of those "gems" in life that happen once in a while. When I visit a town I always ask the "locals" where they would dine. For authentic Japanese cuisine this is the place to go which many of the locals recommend. From the delicious Misu soup to the wide variety of menu choices you cannot go wrong!!!... More

I was skeptical, but I was really was craving some sushi. We had the Rainbow and Soft Shell Crab rolls as well as the Spicy tuna and an Eel with Avocado roll. I'd recommend them all.

Kazu has been a local establishment for a long time (many decades). The quisine never fails to please. I think of the food as refined and tasty. The service is pleasant. All food is cooked to order. If speed is desired ask the server for guidance when ordering. This is a wonderful restraint with delicious food

We waited almost an hour. If we hadn't been tired and with a three year old we would have left. The chef is stretching by offering Tempura. The Thai dishes seemed to be better handled, but none of it was worth the poor service. I don't think it was the waitress's fault just a slow kitchen.

We were two couples visiting. We were seated right away and had beverages. Service was friendly and good. Then the food came out in good time and was delicious. The amount was good and good value. Very pleasant meal. Would definitely return. Convenient location to walk to.

The food is actually very good. I don't know what I was expecting, but this sure exceeded it. All the usual Asian suspects, all done well with good service. The decor is nothing to write home about, but I'm not into eating decor. The wait stuff is excellent.

My family and I visited during a tour of Shepherd University. Waitress was nice but the food took forever. Spring Rolls were actually cold inside. I had Panang Curry and it had formed a jello like film on the top when it came out. I would say it's a low end Chinese food place trying to take advantage of the... More
