We have now been twice for dinner, the first time was the week that it opened and the second time was because we could not take the wait at Raw. The first time we went there was only one other table in the entire place that was eating and

Pros: Food, decor

Very good sushi but definitely on the pricey side. Do not go here if you are looking for an affordable meal. However, if you are looking for very good sushi and creative rolls, this is your place. Not as trendy or as great of a

I love sushi and Japanese food in general. There are many Japanese restaurants around the city I love to go to, and I tried this one out for the first time on Monday. The hostess was hands-down the nicest most friendly hostess I've ever

Ginger Salad ? Yum! Dumplings ? Yum! Sushi ? Yum! I have to say I had a great experience at Kaizan. The service was wonderful and the menu had a nice selection (both price and food options). We ran in for a quick bite before a show

I highly recommend going to Kaizan. It's a bit pricy for everyday dining but the food was delicious and on the cutting edge. I have lived in the city for more than 10 years and the experience in Kaizan was the most remarkable thing

Well intentioned place with good service and very good drinks. The sushi is okay and multiple grades of tuna (as per another reviewer) are pretty standard at any reputable sushi place. We were there on a week night and the place was empty,

I had the 7 course Kaiseki and the food experience was just amazing. In fact, everything about this place is amazing. The ambiance is soothing, very zen - the wall panels with the kimono motif - very nicely done. The lighting is also

The space that used to be Neil Stein's Mirabella and more recently The Smoked Joint is now Kaizan. It is located at Academy House accross the street from Aria condominium. I am a sushi fanatic. The fish is fresh and portions are generous.

As a recent New Yorker, I can't say this is the Blue Ribbon of Philadelphia. The sushi and sashimi are ok but I expect more for the prices. The kaiseki was also nothing special. The decor was standard lounge and the service slow and
