Love Kazu and the food is good. But they could have done with another member of staff on Friday night as people were waving to get the staff's attention. They were very pleasant but we did have to wait nearly an hour and a quarter to get one of our dishes... and had to ask for it. But it was worth it.

Had an early dinner for my mothers birthday. Exactly what we were looking for; calm ambiance, sufficiently attentive service and most importantly good food.

Took a friend for a lunch deal, though got carried away with ordering lots of extras, the lunch deal is a bargain. Great tasting salmon teriyaki served with rice, miso and salad all for £16 app. Though the dish to rave about was the Charlotte Roll, tuna, salmon and yellow tail with tabiko and a yuzu sauce. Absolutely delicious, the vibes were on point very chilled but with a great buzz. Great service as well! I will def be back!

Very much enjoyed the food but the service was a little slow as I think they were short staffed during a busy service. The food was very tasty. Would go back for sure.

Nice place, I don’t understand the lemon drizzle in the signature rolls but I guess it’s matter of taste. Besides, the other inside out rolls were nice. A bit overpriced, maybe.

The food is truly excellent. On a par with 'Dinings', but with a much better name. Can't really fault it. If you love Japanese food, this is the real deal. Not cheap, but with this kind of quality, it wouldn't be.

Overall, food was very good. The shrimp and spinach salad was really good and unseen. We loved the sashimis. A bit less fans of the rolls even if they were good (lack of flavor and eel cut a bit too thick)
Sake with yuzu excellent. Wish they still had Sauvignon Blanc from New Zeland by the glass. (the Pinot Grigo is forgettable)
Would recommend

The food and service was good, but it's expensive. I think the menu is overpriced especially the Sake. We ordered a Sake charged £55 there which is a cheap Sake costs less than £10 in Japan and supermarket.

Food was good, especially the sushi which was excellent. I would not recommend this restaurant though due to the complete lack of atmosphere. Visited on a sunday evening and the place was empty. We had to ask them to put on some music so that it felt less awkward. Food was served promptly and immaculately and service was very polite. Restaurant has potential but they really need to work on their ambience.

Service and the ambience is great!! However the salad included in the lunch set was too salty. Other than that everything’s perfect.

The food at Kazu is excellent and authentic. The service was fine however when we asked if we could have the bottle of tap water on our table so that we could pour it ourselves, we were told 'no'. This was quite frustrating as we had to constantly bug the waitress for more water and occasionally she forgot when we asked her whilst she was serving other customers. I am not sure why we were not allowed to have the water on the table. Aside from this, everything else was perfect. The food here is incredible and possibly one of the best Japanese sushi restaurants in London.

We sat at the bar and witness Sensei work his magic, all our starts of spinach gomae , spicy wakame went down beautifully, the batter in the tempura moriwase was light crunchy pillows of love clinging to fresh prawns , salmon, aubergines etc. Our mains of chirashi was a generous portion of separate glistening rice with a perfect bite each topped with toro, tako, shake, ikura, hamachi, amaebi - super fresh and tasty (my dining partner forsook the shoyu on the basi that the fish was tasty enuff) - suffice to say we polished every bit and rice grain. The bar chair were surprising confy and we sat there for about two hours - we could have easily done three. Highly recommended.
