Located in a strip mall on Rt 9 north bound in south Freehold, Kazu is a wonderful sushi destination. On a lark, I decided to give this eatery a try. The sushi was excellent. The wait time was average but I could see it being a long wait at times as there looks to be a single sushi chef. As... More

Sushi by Kazu is a small restaurant in the Chadwick Square shopping center on Route 9 in Freehold. The place is quaint but the sushi is sublime. We went with a group of 7 and all had their fill for a reasonable price. The fish is so fresh it melts in your mouth. The service is great and the presentation... More

Kazu not only has traditional dishes but also some Kazu creations. Food is always delicious because of its freshness, and, preparation. The tuna will melt in your mouth. The Sashimi roll and the Soy Sheet roll are favorites. The hostess, Mayimi, always treats us like family. Kazu and Mayimi make you feel at home. We have been going to Kazu... More

I've tried every Japanese Sushi place in the area, and I can say this is the best. I've been to Japan 4 times, and this one is the real deal. As far as I can tell, Kazu is the only Sushi restaurant in this area run by Japanese owners. All of the others are Chinese and Korean owned. I've given... More

Visited for dinner last night - Service was NOT good - started by having to get up to get our menus. After waiting some time we flagged down the ONE server to order. Waited 30 minutes for the small portions of sushi with little flavor to arrive - the spice in the spicy tuna was not existent. The rolls had... More

We went on Fiday night. No cook food were available. Sushi were substandard, very overpriced. Rice was probably made two days ago, fish is not very fresh. Water or tea were not offered. I remember this restaurant few years ago was very good. Not anymore.

There is a lot of mediocre sushi around. If that is what you are used to Kazu will be an eye opener. This is what sushi should be, fresh, interesting and exquisitely prepared. You don't have to go to Tokyo or even into New York to get top quality sushi just come to Kazu.
