“Fresh, Creative and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

Finally! A Japanese restaurant that has found the perfect balance of fresh ingredients, creative plating and excellent service.

First, I had the Kamikaze and Rainbow roll along with an order of Hamachi sashimi. Both rolls were excellent with the perfect portioning of fish, eel etc. Each ingredient was identifiable but none were overused. The Hamachi sashimi was delicious and the perfect temperature. My father in-law also tried the sashimi for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.

Others in the party had the Chicken Teriyaki "loved it" and the Port Katsu "best they've ever had".

In addition to the above dishes, we also had the Hamachi Kama (not on menu) and Toro sushimi. Both were fantastic.

If you want to find out what specials they have you can check out their Facebook page or call and ask for David. He was very helpful and is a great front man for the restaurant.

Can't wait to go back.

“Excellent, creative sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

This sushi is fresh and beautifully prepared. I am vegetarian and they make up special rolls for me like seaweed salad roll, or avo/mango/cilantro, or natto rolls. David the owner takes tremendous pride in the food he serves as well as building relationships with patrons. He gets in specialty fish each week. The agadashi tofu is crisp and flavorful. We get that everytime we eat here. The regular entrees are excellent too. It's so nice to finally have an excellent neighborhood sushi place that is very reasonably priced.

“Oh, I can't wait to return, maybe tomorrrow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Even if you think you don't like Japanese style food or sushi, you will be surprised. If you love Japanese food and sushi, you will love it. It is simply delicious, fresh, well presented and reasonably priced. We shared appetizers and had a bottle of wine ($50 without tip). We left so satisfied, not full, and so anxious to return.

It is in the Mandarin area.

“Dinner Kazu was outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Fazu is a fine Japanese restaurant located on San Jose Blvd. in the same plaza as Carrabba's. We went for dinner on a Saturday evening at 6:30 and it was about one third full. Within the hour it was starting to reach capacity. Based on our tastings, this was to be expected as the food was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable as to the menu items and the excellent selection of sakes.
We both had the Bento Boxes. Mine was the Sashimi (8 pieces) and my wife's the Spicy Tai Basil Chicken. Both boxes contained that day's daily chef's appetizer special, sushi rice and 7 California rolls. The presentation was eye appealing and the food was top rated. Kazu is open for lunch and dinner and provides a wide array of starters, appetizers, Bento Boxes, Maki Rolls, Sushi entrees, Special rolls, Sushi or Sashimi selections, plus dinner entrees (chicken, seafood, steak and Japanese specialties.
We are very much looking forward to working our way through the innovative and appetizing menu. The warm reception and attentive staff compliments the dining experience.
