Let me start by saying that the decor is comfy and stylish. Quite a small restaurant, but makes for a cosy atmosphere.
Our server was polite and quick, but could definitely have smiled more.
The food was definitely BELOW average. If this was a hole-in-the-wall sushi restaurant, then I would expect the type of food that was served. However I consider what we were served to be well below average, and some of the dishes weren't even what they're supposed to be. For example, the shrimp tempura (a favourite of mine) was NOT shrimp tempura. It looked and tasted like a heavily battered and oily shrimp one would buy in the frozen section of the grocery. Tempura batter is supposed to be light and crunchy...this batter was thick, dense and resembled phulori. The rolls were acceptable but definitely NOT worth the price, and resembled pre-made sushi found in a grocery. The sashimi was acceptable but was not as fresh as it should be.
If you're looking for a real sushi experience, this is definitely not the place to go. The food is overpriced considering some of the dishes are not what they're supposed to be and poor in quality. I'm not a cheap person and don't mind spending money on food that tastes good, but $500TT for food I can buy in a grocery is ridiculous. I've had infinitely better sushi at all-you-can-eat restaurants for a fraction of the price. If they're going to serve this kind of food, they should lower their prices and call it something else.

Kaizan is conveniently located in Movietowne so it's ideal for an after shopping meal. The restaurant offers an intimate setting without feeling crowded and the ambiance is lovely.The sushi is quite good, the menu offers a wide variety and the wait staff is knowledgeable and pleasant. I love that the wait time between ordering and receiving the meals is short. The prices are also affordable for the range of choices offered. Ask about their Kaizan card which gives you redeemable points for each visit.

Kaizen Sushi is ideally located in the Movietowne Mall so it's a good place for a movie or shopping then dinner. It's good for a quiet lunch as well. The Sushi is very good and there is a varied menu. Everyone serving and preparing the meals was well informed and friendly. The vanilla ice cream tempura idesert is done better here than others I've tried.
