Fabulous! – I went with a group of 10 on a Saturday night. The place was packed yet we stil recieved top notch service. The wait staff was very friendly and on top of everything. The food was amazing! Highly recommended!
Best sushi in Cherry Creek – Great sushi in Cherry Creek, much better than Hapa or Kona Grill. The sushi is fresh and presented well. The prices are reasonable. It has a pleaseant, down-to-earth ambience that is much less pretentious than other Cherry Creek restaurants.
Great Authentic Japanese food. Parking in rear! – Both sushi and just Japanese food are good here. Parking is in rear of the building. You can also park next to the library at night. Service can be rather slow at times, but it is worth the wait. :) This place remains one of my favorites and my usual spot.
My Favorite Sushi in Town! – If I could only eat one type of food the rest of my life it would be sushi! I been to alot of susshi places in Denver and Tazu is #1. I tend to sit at the bar, so I get the free cucumber salad. I love the seaweed salad, catepillar roll, fatty toro, and mackeral to list a few, and of cousre edamame. The staff is always friendly, however never seems to recognize me, even though I dined there a couple times a month for 8 years.
Cozy sushi dining – This place is is good for grps of <4, anymore and you'll have to wait for the one corner table that might seat 6. Located in the posh Cherry Creek shopping district, this is a surprisingly low-key & casual place. I thought my unagi & salmon nigiri were wonderful some of the best; the lobster tempura roll excellent! My neighbor ordered the tuna sashimi and didnt think it was as fresh as it should have been, he felt that the taste and texture indicated it might have been frozen or iced too long - admittedly his sashimi lacked the bright redness that fresh sashimi should have. He did like the lobster roll. I also tried the tofu salad which is good for two! I'd never heard of it, but it included fresh greens, seaweed salad, tofu - duh!, with a miso/soy dressing. As a salad goes it was good, but I'm not accustom to cold, raw?, soft tofu, however I could still enjoy it. The mochi ice cream seemed to be the kind you could buy 6/pak at a modern asian supermarket, so I wouldn't recommend wasting the calories and money. This is a good sushi place. As an visitor it's convenient, it's only a 5 min walk to Saks 5th Ave. and the Cherry Creek mall, where you can easily climb into a cab from the taxi queue or go shopping!
Editorial Review – Cozy, innovative sushi house serves unique rolls, Japanese entrees and vegetarian selections; sushi chef competitions provide daily specials, happy hour.
Great food ... worth the wait – We're from San Francisco and LOVE sushi ... while in Denver we decided to try out this sushi restaurant. Even though we had to wait 30 minutes ... which I don't mind so much. The sushi was very good ... fresh ... loved it and had a great time.
Service and Sushi? – I was definitely disappointed in the service and quality of sushi presented here at this acclaimed Cherry Creek sushi place. It took forever for our waitress to come over to us initially. Finally, when we received our food, it was less than good. The fresh water unagi literally tasted like the lake it was swimming in. But to no avail it was impossible to tell our waitress that because she did not appear at all!! We had to ask someone else to clear our plates and our waitress di not even bring our check or run our credit cards. I don't think I would go back even if the meal was free!! Sorry, sushi tazu...
Great Sushi - Great Service – We have eaten at Sushi Tazu a NUMBER of times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. It can get a little crowded on Fri/Sat nights, but who wants to go to a Sushi restaurant that doesn't have high turnover! We prefer Sushi Tazu over Sushi Den anytime.
A pleasant sushi experience - I'd go again – This is not the finest sushi restaurant in the world, nor in Denver, but it is good. No precut fish here. The Bonito/Katsuo was a welcome menu sight (most sushi restaurants do not carry it on a regular basis). The uni was fresh, and hamachi/shake were both well-portioned slices. I'd go back. Plus for my companion's birthday we were surprised with gratis cheesecake and green tea ice cream to a pleasant version of Hrappy Bilfday.
