This is probably the worst restaurant I’ve been to, let alone “Japanese” restaurant. Ordered a deplorable squid, the sashimi was cut as thick as a ribeye, and the fried chicken was softer than a wet sponge. The rolls looked like they were made by a 12 year old forced to make sushi as punishment. I wouldn’t wish this dining experience on my worst enemies.

Finally tried Kazoo for the first time today. Walked in after 6pm on a Friday and got sat and greeted right away. There are many rude and misleading reviews here claiming this place is "just sushi from the 90s" (as if the decades running a business in Japantown are bad?), and I'm ashamed it took me over a year to try this place because of them. Some said the place was "old" and "just okay". But the grilled eggplant with miso was equally delicious and well-presented. My husband got poke nachos, which is a fairly modern dish (the chips were crispy wontons). Takoyaki was only $4.95 and our 3 rolls were $5.95 each, so it's difficult to guess where the "overpriced" reviews came from. Overall, the food was delicious, the service was great, and the prices were good. I'll definitely be back soon!

This place has been here for over 25+ years for me. Prices are good, great food, decent portions.

I love this place, my family and I have been coming to Kazoo for over 15 years. I appreciate that the new owner tried to keep the same vibe going on and kept most of the old employees. Food prices have definitely gone up, but that's part of the business. We love Jose, the sushi chef, and all the waitresses are super great and nice. Food is always great, of course.

I've eaten here several times over the years. Very good and consistent. Love their noodle dishes with tempura. Delicious dashi. Only let down, spider roll wasn't very good. Too much batter, couldn't taste the crab.
