Yum. The duck dumplings and volcano rolls rule. It was fun and a place to be seen on miracle mile. Totally casual but the back area had a beautiful formal quinciera. We ordered 4 appetizers, several rolls, teas and dessert. About $200 for all of it for 4 people.

Was very excited to have my anniversary here after reading rave reviews about Kao's sushi and fusion dishes online. One dish we received was inedible as the fish being used smelled old and very fishy. The rolls we got were alright, but were completely covered in sauces that overpowered the entire flavor, such as one that tasted like pure mayonnaise on the spicy tuna roll. The location and space of this restaurant is excellent, and maybe we just caught them on a bad night, but it was truly not a good experience and I would not return.

I especially prefer their seating - it is spacious both inside and outside, and there are plenty of booths which I personally prefer when dining out with my family. By the way - they serve best ribs in town!

The lamb in the lamb bun has no seasoning or much flavor. The boa bun is not soft like most Korean restaurants. The pork dumplings obviously is from a frozen package. My sashimi was ok. My friends sushi was horrible. He said Publix sushi taste much better. To be honest I have had way better sushi at a mom and pop sushi joint. It’s definitely over priced for what we ordered probably because of the location. Probably will not return. Especially after we have had amazing sushi at places like Omakai.

First time dining at Kao. Overall very good. Our server needs more training since she admitted she was new. Drinks arrived without napkins or stirrers. Additionally, the check was placed on the table before the dessert had arrived. Easily correctable issues that won’t keep us from coming back.

I am a Miami local and wanted to check out a different sushi option in a different neighborhood. Unfortunately Kao Sushi was NOT the way to go! I found Kao Sushi on Open table and they showed they had 10 pm and 10:15pm reservations left for Friday night. I booked the 10 pm and let the restaurant know we would be a little late. We arrived at 10:10 pm only to be greeted by nobody and when we finally found someone he seated us to a table inside and informed us that the kitchen was closing at 10:30 so we needed to order right away!! Why would you offer 10:00 pm and 10:15 pm reservations if your kitchen closes at 10:30? We sat, reviewed the menu & ordered as quickly as possible. We asked the server if he thought it was too much food and of course he upsold us to an additional dish. Needless to say we had way too much food for two people! The food arrived and it was okay sushi. Nothing to rave about. Seemed fresh but the rolls were over dressed and flavor of the fish lost. My boyfriend and I were trying to enjoy our dinner and time together and suddenly the restaurant turned off the music and started cleaning the dining room. Moving chairs, tables and performing side work all around us. It was SO uncomfortable! The server approached the table to offer to go boxes within 5 minutes of starting our meal. We were essentially rushed out of the building. Truly unfortunate as we were trying to have a nice date and conversation. So maybe next time turn off your reservations at 9:30 so your guests can enjoy their dinner. I will never return here and I would never recommend Kao Sushi.
