Something has happened to Kazu. After years of enjoying the traditional style Modest Japanese restaurant, in our latest visit, we were quite disappointed. Like all of our visits it was a spur of the moment idea and we were pleased when they confirmed our booking, but said we had to be out by 7.20 as it was booked for 7.30.... More

Haven't been here for 3 years, inflated prices and both food and standards have dropped!! If it wasn't for the two sweet waitresses we probably would have left... This is an example of what happens when there is no competition, as this is the only Japanese restaurant in Mornington. Stick to the sushi bars if you want sushi!!

We really enjoyed the sushi boat. The ambience was enhanced by Japanese pictures and displays of traditional costumes.

Lovely restaurant on the main street of Mornington. Went to KAZU after being underwhelmed by The Rocks menu. Food here was excellent and you could not complain about the value.

Family run Japanese restaurant tucked away down a little lane behind the street front cafes. This is a busy restaurant that serves consistently good plates. Recommend sharing dishes family style to indulge in a wide variety of tastes. Sushi boats are a highlight and particularly good if you have a table number of guests to share. Don't miss the blackboard... More

Had dinner there last got with our Japanese friend who is visiting and she said the Miso soup was as good as her Mum makes. We love this place but to have Takako tell us it really is like home was great news for us. The food is tasty, the staff are friendly and the service is awesome. Great wines,... More

I'm picky with Japanese food and I'm happy to say that I was totally satisfied with what we ate. I was scared a bit at first, there were no Japanese folks dining, but this definitely wasn't an indication of an anglesised menu. Woohoo! The menu has pictures of the meals next to them so if you're not sure you can... More

Kazu was recommended highly to us - and we have been delighted everytime we've visited. The specials board is a great lead - the salmon sashimi/avocado/wasabi mayonnaise is to die for, wasabi prawns and seafood pancake equally delicious. Service is attentive, ambiance lovely - a wonderful experience!
