It's hard to pick a favorite since they were all outstanding. We were given good advice by our waitress on what to order and she even helped us pair our beer and wine to what we ordered. It was small but not too loud and even though we sat close to our neighbors we felt our conversation was private and we couldn't hear our neighbors either because the tables were situated so nicely.
I have been frequenting Kaz for 5 years during the school year and will continue to do so as long as I am in Washington. Kaz delivers consistently quality seafood, which is important. I generally order Sushi (maki, nigiri, sashimi), but have enjoyed around 80% of the items on the menu.
The fish was top-notch. Dinner for two, with a bottle of wine, was about $100. We ordered everything off the special menu (figured it would be freshest). We had the scallop nigiri with an apple reduction of sorts, the mackerel nigiri, a toro nigiri of sorts, two orders of the walu nigiri, and tempura clams with green tea salt, served beautifully in a clam shell. I think it's the best sushi I've had in DC. Everything was fresh and delicious. The WALU was awesome, get it if it's on the menu. I went back a few days later and had the walu nigiri and 2 rolls (one tuna/cuke and one yellowtail/scallion) and thought it as great, and the basic rolls were a reasonable cost (around $5-6), so it doesn't have to be a pricey night.
I visited Kaz last Friday with my friend and another couple. The sushi was pretty good. My friend and my friend's boyfriend claimed to have never had better sushi. We didn't try any of the special rolls, but the nigiri was pretty good and boasted some interesting combinations of fish and sauce. Although it got pretty busy, the service was pretty good and the ambiance was nice.
Very good sushi...not mind blowing but good and consistent which I find several sushi places lacking. Usually always get the standard rolls - spicy scallop, spicy shrimp, spicy tuna, tuna tartare, spicy salmon and seared salmon belly. The salmon belly is the perfect way to begin this meal...its amazing. Always have the green tea...most of the time they don't charge you for it.

I took my aunt who was visiting from PA here after reading reviews on Yelp. Great job people! The food and service was excellent! The atmosphere was nice, more quiet than I had anticipated it to be. The seafood was fresh and everything was prepared very delicately. I'm thinking I'll take my parents next time!
The food here was great! I had three hand-rolls - spicy tuna, salmon avocado, and crunchy shrimp. All of the rolls were great - very fresh. The lunch special also came with a small salad that had an amazing sesame seed dressing and a bowl of miso soup. I thought even the miso soup was above average. The only drawback is that it's a bit pricey - my lunch special was $14.50.

Kaz is the most consistently fresh and delicious sushi in D.C. Others are good, but fail in one way or another. I have probably been to Kaz 20-30 times. Each time, the fish has been perfectly sliced, served at the perfect temperature, and served without the attitude of undeserving nearby places. Many places get inventive with sushi and lose on quality and authenticity. Not Kaz. The tuna nigiri with truffle and prosciutto-wrapped scallops will make you smile. And try the ice cream.
I have to admit that I am not big into Sushi, however I was seriously impressed by the quality of the food at Kaz Sushi Bistro. All the ingredients were fresh and full of flavor. I've tended to find that generally the fish and seafood tend to taste a little off, but not here, it was ocean fresh. The portions were very reasonable and the value was good. Highly recommended.
I'm a big fan of sushi and I'd say this is one of the best spots in DC and quite authentic. The interior is simple and the staff is very polite. What they lack in creative or fusion-esque combo rolls, such as SEI, they more than make up in quality of fresh fish. You can tell it's high quality food, which makes it that much more enjoyable. Check it out!
The spouse and I opted for the restaurant week dinner menu. We had the yellowtail ceviche and salmon tartar...amazing. The nigiri and maki were just so-so: bland fish, odd texture to the rice. The walu, however, was exceptional. For dessert, we had the espresso tapioca and panna cotta with mango sorbet business; both were surprisingly tasty.
My favorite sushi place! Try the tuna with foie gras and seared salmon belly-heaven! I crave the calamari "pasta" with uni and quail egg that is usually on the daily specials. I've also had delicious sablefish, and different types of toro. Order off of the daily specials menu for really fresh and delicious fish.
I don't really eat sushi a lot, I went here for a birthday dinner and all I know is that I'm in love with the mexican roll! Its yummy and spicy! If you don't eat sushi at all and want to take a try I def recommend the mexican roll to start with! The restaurant is nice and cozy.
I finally got myself out of my ordinary selection from the menu last week and ordered Ramen at lunch time. It was really tasteful with miso. I really appreciated the egg, big sheet of sea weed, roast pork that came in the bowl. Another great thing is that it comes with a nice green salad before the Ramen.
The meal was exceptional. We ordered some sushi rolls and then opted to split the Chef's choice 10 piece sushi entree. The chef's selections were not only very tasty, but the attention to detail with each sushi piece added subtle flavors to really make the meal wonderful.
The most inventive and approachable sushi restaurant in town. Fruited scallops and pomegranate tuna vie with traditional dishes for excellence. Non-fish eaters can content themselves with an array of chicken and meat dishes that are worthy complements to the sparkling fresh fish.
Kaz has some creative, unusual sushi options as well as the standard fare like salmon, tuna, etc. The sushi here is some of the best and freshest I've eaten in the DC metro area. The environment is cozy and aesthetically pleasing, and the staff are professional. The only downfall is that it's a somewhat pricey place to eat. Definitely recommended though!
