Based on the high quality and integrity of our fish, seafood, meat, poultry, and vegetable ingredients as well as our attention to the execution of our dishes, we want our guests to enjoy an upscale experience in a comfortable casual setting with casual prices. Our clean, cozy, warm dining room and the convenience of our own parking lot in Tyson's Corner complete the Kizuna experience.

The menu is a love letter to the two Japanese traditions of ramen and sushi. In fact, the name Kizuna is derived from a Japanese concept meaning strong emotional bonds. In this case, the bond between people and also between people and the food they love. The sushi menu has a large selection of nigiri, including shrimp, tuna, salmon, octopus and tobiko. The signature Kizuna ramen has three slices of pork belly, charred garlic oil, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, toasted nori and half a hanjuku egg.

Attentive service, bar made good margarita (lol). Edamame came out looking like old beans had been mixed in with new... kitchen tried to convince us it was a mix of black and green edamame and that is why the colors were different - couldn’t find anything online about these differing types of edamame so we sent back and requested new beans only - the second plate looked the same so we didn’t eat. Pretty good prices and palatable sushi. Nothing really overly impressive about the food. Wouldn’t return, there are better casual sushi spots nearby.

Always great. Had the Pork Shoyu Ramen with pork stock, delicious. Had the monster Goyza app, also delicious. Sushi was great as well as the service.

I had been here once before, and thought it was pretty good. Our second visit was not so good. It took several minutes for the staff to notice us; once we finally ordered drinks, it turned out they were out of our first several drink orders - which happens, but the waitress didn't apologize and just kept coming back to the table with "we don't have that either - what else do you want" - not a great attitude to take when we're ordering off your menu that needs to be updated. Food was fine - we ordered the brussels sprouts, a couple "everyday" rolls, and some ramen - at least the food tasted good. We didn't see the waitress again for a while, so if we needed anything after our food came, we were out of luck. I am a sucker for mochi, so despite the not great experience we decided to order dessert, but unfortunately the waitress didn't write down the order and brought the wrong thing to my husband. And then our bill was $100 - pretty pricey for two people who had one drink each. It wasn't awful - but it definitely was not 4 or 5 star service.

This is one of our regular eating places since we moved here a few years ago and we love it. Great food, friendly service and the owner is also frequently there to say hello to patrons. If you have not been here it is a “must try”.

Kizuna is a fantastic little ramen and sushi restaurant hidden away in Tysons Corner. It has a good sushi list with great simple rolls and some fun specialty rolls. The Shio ramen bowls are very good and have large portion sizes at a reasonable price.

I’ve been to Kizuna many times before and am used to the service. The first time I was there, my server was very condescending and even questioned my choice to order two servings of an appetizer. My most recent time, I reached out to touch my udon bowl and burned all of my fingers. No one had made my table aware that the bowl would be hot.

The food was excellent. One dish that the waitress said was not spicy, however, was actually quite spice. In addition, the restaurant was a bit noisy, which is why I rated the ambiance only "good". (We do not particularly like an "energetic" noise level.) The value was excellent. Overall, this restaurant was excellent!

Sashimi and sushi is not really what I am used to as quality Sashimi and sushi. I guess I am just so used to what I get in Hawaii. Ramen is okay.

As always, great food. But I ordered the ramen and it took more than thirty minutes to arrive. My wife's main course came much earlier. When I asked about my meal, the waiter told me the ramen station was backed up. Had he told me that when I made the order I would have asked for something else. I consider this a breakdown in service and it marred an otherwise good dining experience. I hope in the future the staff will alert customers beforehand if there is a delay.

Meh. Sushi had a “whiff” to it, cuts were sinewy and chewy, not in a good way. I’m feeling the after effects in my stomach right now, hoping for a brief storm only. $90 for three people, for that quality of sushi, not worth it. Not going back.

Nice restaurant in a convenient location. Sushi was above average, but the ramen noodles were stuck together and almost uncooked. Service was off the night we went as we had to wait for our drink order for almost 20 minutes and when we did get it, the drink order was incomplete.

Not a good first impression for a restaurant but not a deal breaker. May try it again.

Kizuna was our third dining experience for our anniversary weekend. We tried the Gyoza, the steamed baos, and shared a bowl of Ramen with a lava egg. Food was fun and delicious. Wait staff was attentive, and our food arrived promptly. Nothing was offered for our anniversary.

Ambiance is great, service is very good but the food is so-so. Disappointed with the ramen. It is pricey but the taste needs a lot of improvement. The ramen broth lacks depth and flavor, sushi was ok and takoyaki was very good.
