This place provides excellent service as well as delightful meals. The best restaurant in the city. The food came out fast and the prices were economical. Will definitely recommend this spot.
This place has the best sushi I have ever tried so far! I am not the person to eat raw food but this blew my mind. Everything I ate melted in my mouth. The experience was great and I will definitely be going back!
Looking for a new date spot? Tucked away in West Town, Kai Zan is my go-to place when my husband and I want a fancy date night. At a reasonable $65 per person, the omakase is impressive and includes 10 courses featuring the restaurant's greatest hits. I was blown away by the creativity of the food's presentation - you can tell that the chef puts so much thought into every single detail of each dish, which makes the whole experience so exquisite. The food comes out very quickly here and the service is stellar, so you'll be finished with your 10 courses in about an hour and a half. Kai Zan does serve alcohol, but we did see a couple run out and buy their own bottle of wine so I believe you can carry in booze as well. We ordered the Wandering Poet sake which we paired with an IPA. Favorite courses: Oyster and scallop shooters with quail egg: I was a bit hesitant to try but each bite is just packed with flavor Orange Rush: a seared scallop wrapped in salmon on top of a purple seashell Dynamite mussels: mussels with a kick Angry crab: spicy crab wrapped in tuna with a tempura crunch Because the restaurant is rather small (which makes it intimate) and very popular, reservations are highly recommended. If you are looking to be absolutely blown away with amazing sushi in a hip environment, check out Kai Zan ASAP!
