Kaz Sushi Bistro
Posted by JB on 04/11/2014
Was in Washington on business. Went to Kaz. Big mistake. The most unappetizing sushi I've had in a long while. The Sushi was ice cold, tough and tasteless. The hand rolls were all rice and the rice was ice cold as well. The service was very nice and the waitress was lovely, but the sushi was just about the worst I've had. And the $120 bill for two made things a lot worse.

After reading several highly positive reviews for KAZ, I decided to give it a try during Restaurant Week. My experience was incredibly disappointing. Not only was the Restaurant Week Menu posted on their website inaccurate, the sushi turned out to be mediocre at best. Although the ingredients were fresh and of high quality, there was a lack of originality, generosity, and distinction. The texture and taste of the tiny amount of fish in the rolls was definitely lost. The nigiri, on the other hand, featured more satisfying cuts of fish. Still, it was nothing spectacular. I don’t think I remember anything that stood out in my entire meal enough to make me want to return to KAZ other than my appetizer, which wasn’t even sushi (grilled kobe beef). I truly believe that DC foodies must not have very high standards for sushi to rate this place so highly.

We were just ten minutes late for our reservation, and thus were told by the maitre de that we only had an hour and fifteen minutes to eat our food upon our arrival. We were told again by our server that we only had an hour and fifteen minutes to dine before we would be asked to leave. Sushi was decent, though not good enough to make up for the negative atmosphere. Drinks were sub par and overpriced. We went to the restaurant for our friend's birthday and were treated poorly. I will probably never go back to this restaurant, and I do not recommend it to anyone, despite Frommer's two-star rating.

Very fresh and well-prepared! The size of the sushi and rolls is decent and much bigger than at many other DC places. While the place is a bit pricy, it's well worth it compared to the poor quality sushi available elsewhere in DC.

Went here on a Friday night with a friend. The rolls were ok, nothing special, and the sashimi was small. They were out of a special I wanted to order and it was still somewhat early for dinner. Service was medicore. I'll stick to Sushi Chef or Taro next time.
