Kazoo Japanese Restaurant and Bar in Glen Waverley 1

I’ve always felt that there isn’t much point in trying other Japanese restaurants in Glen Waverley because Shiranui is there – but lately I’ve just been too many times.

Kazoo Japanese Restaurant and Bar just opened mid July and replaced Circuz – the location of the restaurant (the address is Coleman Parade) is fantastic as it overlooks Springvale Road.  The decor hasn’t changed much since the change of business – it still looks inviting and ready to host a large number of dinner guests.

For lunch, they offer a list of bentos including unagi (eel) and soft shelled crab.  Each bento comes with a few pieces of sushi, miso soup, rice, seaweed and vegetables.

We chose the unagi bento ($14.5, will there be a visit to a Japanese restaurant where we will not choose this?) – the unagi was fantastic and the vegetables consisted of mixed salad with a light teriyaki flavoured salad dressing (either that or the unagi sauce went onto the vegetables!).  The sushi was raw salmon and avocado – a welcome change to other restaurants where the accompanying maki only has cucumber or avocado etc.

We also had deep fried king prawns with mango mayonnaise – a crisp exterior and fresh prawns covered with a mayonnaise with a subtle mango flavour.  My lunch companion felt the mayo could have had a bigger kick but I enjoyed the subtle flavours.

Overall a great meal.  There were a lot of items on their menu – can’t wait to go back with a group to try them out.
