'Service was great when we were ordering lots of saki and sushi and spending many hundreds of dollars last week. But heaven forbid that two gals would have the audacity to order only 2 glasses of wine and some sushi at 5 pm on a Monday

I've eaten at Tazu so often, I can even count the times. Everything on the menu is very good. I really like the suskiyaki on a cold day. Warms you right. The sushi is perfect for a light lunch during the work week. I also really like the assorted tempura. If you like sushi yuo must try Tazu.

I am a late bloomer to the sushi scene. I didn??t begin eating sushi until I married my Japanese wife and even then not until right before we took a trip to Japan. Even though I am no connoisseur I have learned to appreciate good sushi. Sushi Tazu has good sushi.
I have been to other sushi restaurants in Denver and I can say without a doubt that Sushi Tazu is my favorite. You can keep your uppity sushi restaurants where the patrons look down one everyone (who isn??t them), and even though I hate the Cherry Creek area for its pretentious people. I have to say the customers there seem to become more down to earth once they go inside.
Anyway, my wife agrees that the food hear is good and reminds her of home. I love the wait staff, they are always friendly and seem to remember my face every time I come in. The presentation is lovely and the fish is always fresh. I have often sat at the bar and watched the sushi chef as he prepares a meal and I am fascinated with his skill. My only disappointment has been recently.
A few days ago my wife and I went there and the regular chef must have been off. I was disappointed to see a non Japanese person making the sushi. I don??t want to sound like a racist but there are certain things I believe are better left to their ethnic roots. Authentic sushi restaurants should have Japanese sushi chefs. Ok now that I have made an ass of myself, I will end by saying of all the sushi restaurants I have been to in Denver Sushi Tazu is my favorite and it reminds me most of the ones I visited while in Japan.

Pros: great sushi, friendly service, great presentation

Cons: Cherry Creek area,

My Japanese friends took me there for dinners. Thus I take it as this place is at least authentic and good. It offers a good selection of sushi and has some delicious items that are not included in the menu (sorry the names are forgotten). The price is not cheap, but it's good quality food with good service.

Toro was brown. It must be pink.
Not fresh at all.
I don't think I will go there to eat sushi again. Denver has other sushi places you can eat better sushi.

Hands down my husband and my favorite sushi restaurant in Denver. The staff is fantastic. They are helpful, friendly and sometimes really funny. The food is so fresh. I would say it leans more toward the traditional side, than fancy rolls, but they have perfected it. Consistently the best sake (fresh salmon, not drink) in town, it's like butter it's so smooth and perfectly sliced. They have a nice variety of drinks, rolls and other traditional Japanese dishes like pickles and strange omelets. Also, the pricing is very reasonable for sushi and the atmosphere comfortable and warmly lit.

Very authentic Japanese restaurant. The sushi is the freshest around! Service is friendly, and sometimes hard to understand, but efficient enough. Very reasonable prices for the Cherry Creek area.

This is my favorite sushi place in Denver. It is reasonable and fresh. The vibe is very up-beat. I eat here at least twice a month and I have never been sick, that review is probably from some hypocondriac who probably got sick from making out with their "friend."

Pros: fresh sushi, fun vibe

My children and I have been eating here for years and we have never gotten sick!! The food is always awesome and the waitstaff is great with my kids. Perhaps the guy who said he got sick should make sure that is what was from before he makes false accusations.

This was our first time here. A convenient place to meet for lunch. Both my friend and I got sick. I've been sick for 3 days now. It's been god awful. I guess I should have been clued in to the fact the place was pretty dead for lunch on a Friday.

Great sushi in Cherry Creek, much better than Hapa or Kona Grill. The sushi is fresh and presented well. The prices are reasonable. It has a pleaseant, down-to-earth ambience that is much less pretentious than other Cherry Creek restaurants.

Pros: sushi, location, prices, ambience

Both sushi and just Japanese food are good here. Parking is in rear of the building. You can also park next to the library at night. Service can be rather slow at times, but it is worth the wait. :) This place remains one of my favorites and my usual spot.

If I could only eat one type of food the rest of my life it would be sushi! I been to alot of susshi places in Denver and Tazu is #1. I tend to sit at the bar, so I get the free cucumber salad. I love the seaweed salad, catepillar roll, fatty toro, and mackeral to list a few, and of cousre edamame. The staff is always friendly, however never seems to recognize me, even though I dined there a couple times a month for 8 years.

This place is is good for grps of <4, anymore and you'll have to wait for the one corner table that might seat 6. Located in the posh Cherry Creek shopping district, this is a surprisingly low-key & casual place. I thought my unagi & salmon nigiri were wonderful some of the best; the lobster tempura roll excellent! My neighbor ordered the tuna sashimi and didnt think it was as fresh as it should have been, he felt that the taste and texture indicated it might have been frozen or iced too long - admittedly his sashimi lacked the bright redness that fresh sashimi should have. He did like the lobster roll. I also tried the tofu salad which is good for two! I'd never heard of it, but it included fresh greens, seaweed salad, tofu - duh!, with a miso/soy dressing. As a salad goes it was good, but I'm not accustom to cold, raw?, soft tofu, however I could still enjoy it. The mochi ice cream seemed to be the kind you could buy 6/pak at a modern asian supermarket, so I wouldn't recommend wasting the calories and money. This is a good sushi place. As an visitor it's convenient, it's only a 5 min walk to Saks 5th Ave. and the Cherry Creek mall, where you can easily climb into a cab from the taxi queue or go shopping!

We're from San Francisco and LOVE sushi ... while in Denver we decided to try out this sushi restaurant. Even though we had to wait 30 minutes ... which I don't mind so much. The sushi was very good ... fresh ... loved it and had a great time.

Pros: fresh sushi ... most important

Cons: Bit of a wait, but worth it

I was definitely disappointed in the service and quality of sushi presented here at this acclaimed Cherry Creek sushi place. It took forever for our waitress to come over to us initially. Finally, when we received our food, it was less than good. The fresh water unagi literally tasted like the lake it was swimming in. But to no avail it was impossible to tell our waitress that because she did not appear at all!! We had to ask someone else to clear our plates and our waitress di not even bring our check or run our credit cards. I don't think I would go back even if the meal was free!! Sorry, sushi tazu...

We have eaten at Sushi Tazu a NUMBER of times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. It can get a little crowded on Fri/Sat nights, but who wants to go to a Sushi restaurant that doesn't have high turnover! We prefer Sushi Tazu over Sushi Den anytime.

This is not the finest sushi restaurant in the world, nor in Denver, but it is good. No precut fish here. The Bonito/Katsuo was a welcome menu sight (most sushi restaurants do not carry it on a regular basis). The uni was fresh, and hamachi/shake were both well-portioned slices. I'd go back. Plus for my companion's birthday we were surprised with gratis cheesecake and green tea ice cream to a pleasant version of Hrappy Bilfday.

We were very disappointed and will not go again. We like to sit at the sushi bar and ask what is really good/fresh that day. We were told is all was. When we ordered we enjoyed the sunfire sashimi and salmon but the toro (fatty tuna) was bad. It hadn't been probably kept and still had ice chunks and terrible texture. Just wish they woul have a better sense of their product and keep people informed...

Sushi Tazu definately makes a statement against other so-called Japanese Restaurants. The sushi is above average, the menu has many different entrees, appetizers, you name it. We have tried several of their items, and have yet to be dissapointed. The service is very friendly, we have always been treated well. Definately recommended!!!

Sushi Tazu is not so popular/famous as Sushi Dan, but it is definately my favorite one in town. I love the atmosphere in Sushi Tazu. The interior is more like a Japanese restaurant instead of over-designed Japanese restaurant as Sushi Dan. It is wonderful to sit in the bar area. Employees are super nice and friendly. Sushi and sashimi are fresh. Rice bowl, noodels, and grills are delicious. I like grilled salmon collar a lot!! Price is good. This is very important. :)

Actually, I preferred the nigiri to the rolls. The fish was plentiful and succulent sweet hamachi, tender maguro, tempting unagi but the rice left a bit to be desired and the seaweed wrap was a little thick. Overall, though, it was pretty good quality sushi, even for a Tuesday night. I'd definitely go there again just because of the atmosphere. The chefs and waitstaff are constantly blurting out things to one another, which made for a very dynamic environment. Unfortunately the sushi bar is so low that you can't observe the chefs in action, but I sat there for 3 hours and wasn't ever bored! The live crabs crawling around in the jar on the bar kept me plenty entertained...

Reviews are only good depending on who's reviewing it, and I could only say that I have a fairly decent bkgd/knowledge of sushi, so thats why I can say that TAZU is one of my fav. in CO!! Don't fall into the pretentiousness, hype, fad, or .99 cent all u can eat mentality otherwise ur missing out. The attention to detail is exceptional. I love the tai, saba, aji, beef tongue, and the specials they have. U have to try this place above all others.
