Typically no wait for the sushi bar. Sometimes they get pretty busy, and people complain about the wait. They make some great rolls - and aren't afraid to put some fish in there! I have been looking for a sushi bar that made sunomono salads since we moved here. Kaze makes 5 or 6 versions! Last night I ordered a... More

I have a severe seafood allergy so therefore I'm very careful about where I dine. My wife and I spoke with the manager of the restaurant to make sure I would be able to dine there. He assured me that it wouldn't be a problem and suggested that I get my food from the kitchen which was fine. The only... More

We went about 7:30 pm on a Tuesday night and did not have to wait, but snow was on the ground. The chef was entertaining, but definitely not Japanese. The portions were extremely generous. Unfortunately I thought the chef overused soy sauce which made everything taste overly salty. I'm not sure if I could ask for low sodium soy sauce,... More

Only one server and they seated two new tables. We were told to stand and wait or 5 minutes or so. The host would not even seat us. They could not be even bothered with us. Time to go to a real restaurant.

I actually only heard about Kaza Japanese Steakhouse when a friend invited me there for a birthday dinner. It's a good experience but while the Hibachi chefs can be fun I'd stick to sushi. The food was not that great from the grill especially the fried rice. But scallops were done to perfection. However, I enjoyed the atmosphere, the sushi... More

Kaze is a great place to eat and we had a good time with family. I always love a good show and the cooks do entertain. The food was a little bit too greasy and too much soy sauce was used, but it was still good. We also ordered sushi with our meal and it was delicious. A good alternative... More

This is the best hibachi steakhouse in the Garner, Smithfield, Clayton area. The hibachi food is good and so is the sushi and tempura. It is a fun way to have dinner with friends. The hibachi cooks always give a good show.

This was our second visit in the past few months and we had a delicious dinner prepared and served by skillful chefs! While we are accustomed to the presentation, we are sure that the first timers will definitely enjoy the performance by their personal chef! We ordered the dinner for two with steak, shrimps and chicken. The food was cooked... More

My daughter and I went to lunch here today. The food was very good the service was very good. I highly recommend their firecracker crab meat stuffed shrimp appetizer. I had the hibachi steak and shrimp. My daughter had the hibachi steak and chicken. Both were extremely good.
