A must try.

The chef is the owner. Food is great. Price is reasonable as most of the item are shipped from overseas on the day itself (from what I heard). So best to be there early to get all the good and highly recommended dishes. Staff is friendly. Recommend according to our budget. Best to do reservation in advance as it is hard to get seats for walk-in. Overall a must try.

The chef is the owner. The food is great. The staff surprised me with a small birthday celebration after she found out that it was my birthday. Price was reasonable as the ingredients are mostly shipped fresh from overseas on the day itself . Noted that lots of items are first come first serve. So if you want the best, go early. Also best to do reservation in advance as its had to get seats if walk in. overall, a must try.

Crowded little place but the food is worth it

Cuppage Plaza is really one little treasure trove where one can find humble little restaurants that serve quality Japanese food. Kaiho, Nijumaru and Shinjuku (I'm going to check out Marui Sushi sooner or later) are great examples and of course, the famous Kazu is also one of them.

After the renovation, the place looks very modern, though still very crowded. We were literally sharing the table with another couple. So when the staff was nice enough to offer a basket to put my bag, I declined the offer since the walkway is so narrow that the basket with my bag may get kicked around a lot when everyone passed by. Though I still appreciate the thoughful gesture nonetheless. Service is generally good. The senior staff is very helpful in recommendations but tends to be over zealous in doing that, so take note of the number of orders made and whether they fit with one's dietary preferences.

The food is definitely the highlight of this place. A huge variety of sumiyaki available from different kinds of meat paired with an array of vegetables, okonomiyaki ball to foie gras. The freshness and juiciness of the ingredients are evident even when doused with the appetizing flavourful seasonings. The slight charred surface added an extra oomph to the overall taste without too much of it to render the bitter taste.

A must try is the okonomiya ball. In fact, do not share it, get one for each person because even one for each is not enough. The okonomiya ball is loaded with fresh vegetables with only a little dough on the outside to hold everything together—exactly how I like it. The sauce is mildly sweet, salty with a dash of sourness, which is just right to let the delicate taste of the vegetables to shine through.

Though take note that some of the staff like to recommend those specialties which are very expensive but not a lot better than the ones in the menu, in terms of taste. So they are not exactly value for money.

What I like about this place is that a small metal prong is provided, making it very useful to remove the meat from the sticks. The biggest plus is the sleek awesome-looking smoke extractor which really did its job very well. Guarantee not to let a single particle of the smoke lands on the patrons.

While I do not usually dine out for dinner, I will make the exception for Kazu.
