Kaz Sushi Bistro

Kaz Sushi Bistro, web site, 1915 Eye Street NW, Washington, DC, near 20th, 202-530-5500 (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window) [Economist | Washingtonian | The Hill | WaPo | City Paper | Don Rockwell | openlist | Yelp | Gayot]

A mix of Japanese and fusion, both the beef and the sushi can be very good. It has much more variety than your typical Japanese place, you won’t get bored here even after a few visits. Washington needs more of this kind of place. Get the kobe beef. Lately, however, I’ve seen some signs of decline. It remains well above average, but beware.

    Been to this place several times. The best meal ( in terms of C/P value) will be lunch special. But it is always very crowded during lunch time. For single sushi order, try sweet shrimp. That is my favorite yet it is only sold seasonal.

    I think Kaz must be on a serious, serious decline. I went there tonight and the meal on the whole was pretty sloppy. The kobe beef was very good and so was the vegetable miso, but the sushi was really poorly prepared. We ordered shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, and a california. The tuna was mashed and flavorless and the shrimp tempura was covered in what seemed to be fancy ketchup. There are better ways to spend 70 dollars for a meal, especially with Equinox, Pizzeria Paradiso, and Bomba Club down the street.
