We all think Japanese Sushi Bars are very much the same. Limited menu and standard fayre. If you're in Sarasota and especially the Siesta Key or Gulf Beaches area seek out Kazu's 2.0 as the choice is superb. Sushi and sashimi are served in lots of places but the Maku here are brilliant. I ordered a Tunami Roll and a... More

We've tried almost every sushi place from Venice to Bradenton, and Kazu's is pretty good. Not the best, but it was enjoyable and they offer a good variety. Everything is fresh and the service was pretty good for our larger party with a lot of food. The noise level was a bit louder than expected since there are a lot... More

Alto I'm not a sushi freak, this place is good and reasonably priced. I usually do take out and if I time it right, I can sit, have a beer and listen to some killer jazz. Nothing about that sounds bad . . . . .

We moved to Siesta Key about 2.5 years ago and I've been searching for a good sushi place since - I think we found it with Kazu - I did take out and it was quick and reasonably priced - the Jazz trio seems to be in a little conflict with sushi but it works and they sounded great while... More

We love going to Kazu's for sushi. The prices are good and the food is great. They have lots of craft beers too. Plus, there are items on the menu for those who dont like raw fish. The KFC roll is always a hit and I love the tuna nachos. Enjoy!

We've been eating at Kazu since it was a hole in the wall on Siesta Drive. I most recently chose it for my birthday dinner. The move to Gulf Gate some time ago allows for a bigger space and the quality of the food has not changed. It reamins excellent. My kids are addicted to the Crispy Rice and the... More

Coming from NYC I was skeptical, but this place by far has the best sushi I've tried in Sarasota thus far. Its my go to. Check it out if you want top quality sushi for a reasonable price.

Was invited for a friend's birthday dinner. Live jazz music, and a great selection of beers, wines and sake to start. The bartender was extremely knowledgable and gave great advice and tasting samples for our sake selection. We ate at the bar, which felt very social and welcoming. The friend who had invited us (my boyfriend and I), said that... More
