Went with family (7 total) including a 3 yr old and 1 yr old - food was really good. We got a mix of things including the pork ramen, yakutiri, sushi. Cool and hip for adults and accommodating for the little ones. Will go back.

I meet people here for drinks in the courtyard from time to time and it is always very enjoyable. I like when they have music streaming through the courtyard, but that is not always the case. A couple weeks ago we ordered food too. The sushi is delicious; very unique and flavorful rolls. I was not impressed with the fried... More

Very good Japanese restaurant. They have bowls that have innovative ingredients, and that are very filling. They have varieties of sushi rolls and sashimi. This place is popular and so is Vine St. I recommend having reservations on the weekend.

Kaze is a great place to take friends for a night out. Great food and atmosphere. The OTR roll and Ramen bowl were out of this world.

I've been to Kaze a number of times now. If you're going during their lunch time or happy hour I HIGHLY recommend it--it's a great value and good environment. I'm going to break from the norm here, though, and say that I don't recommend their sushi. I'm an avid sushi fan, and their sushi is probably among my least favorite.... More

My wife and I went to KaZe last weekend. She called in advance to make a reservation in their outside patio. We arrived on time, but they didn't have a table for us. In fact, the hostess added that it was first-come-first serve at the table around the patio bar yet she said that with reservation umbrellas on two of... More

We were there on 9/10. We all had a different entree and enjoyed it. I had sushi which was fresh and moist. We had a back room with preserved brick. Service was attentive and not overwhelming. Very affordable.

Sat at the sushi bar for a Saturday dinner. Watching the 3 sushi chefs prepare an immense amount of sushi and sashimi was entertaining to say the least. They were very friendly and didn't mind our questions when we saw one preparing something unfamiliar. Three of us shared 5 rolls after shishito peppers and assorted sashimi. All enjoyed our glasses... More

Four of us were here on a Friday night in lively Over the Rhine. We tried about ten items and they were all delicious (or oishii as they say in Japan). If you don't like sushi, there are plenty of non-fish choices including an incredibly delicious beef slider. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful. The facility was well appointed... More

We dined at Kaza on a weeknight. There were only 5 tables with customers although there was a full staff. Service was extremely slow even to order drinks. The sushi was fine, but not anything special. We probably won't be back unless we are in the neighborhood and looking for sushi.
