“An amazing part of OTR's rebirth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Everything about our meal was perfect. We arrived on time and although the restaurant was crowded, our table was ready - no wait. A very knowledgable server guided us through the menu and helped us make choices on sake (the house, served hot, was addictive), small plates (the sliders were divine!) and all our other choices. The ramen was delicious - packed with flavor and huge bits of crispy pork belly. The sushi was beautifully presented, fresh-tasting, and creative - the "dragonslayer" half roll, with five big pieces, had my mouth doing the happy dance. The restaurant is lovely and the atmosphere was lively and fun. Out-of-town visitors, don't wander off the main streets in this part of Cincinnati. Valet parking was available for $6 on the Friday night that we dined.

“Great new addition for Cincy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

From the moment you enter the door to the moment you leave, the vibe is high energy and hip. Set in a lofty space in Over-The-Rhine, KaZe features full scale dining, a sushi bar, a large bar room with the largest red japanese lanterns I've ever seen, to an outdoor courtyard.

The menu is fresh and innovative. The service is just as good as the food. Our server, Leigh, was prompt with each and every course. Also, so many ethnic restaurants pale when it comes to a wine list that supports the cuisine. Not so with KaZe. We enjoyed a very moderately priced bottle of muscadet that paired beautifully with the full flavored food.

as one person put it, the food's so good, your tongue will slap your tastebuds!!
