Used to be my absolute favorite spot. Now their hours are so funky, they close early from what’s posted in the door. The last three times I have tried to bring a friend around 950, they close at 11, on weekends and they were already...More

Based on the reviews we were expecting a better experience. The sushi was kind of sticky and soggy -- we've had much better even in Sarasota. Would not go back.

This is a hip sushi place in Gulf Gate. They have a full service bar, a great selection of sake and a rarity for a sushi place a larger craft beer selection on tap. Sushi is pretty good too!

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...More
