Located at the corner of San Mateo Drive and Fourth Avenue, Kaz Teriyaki Grill is tucked into the side of Saruki Japanese Market, with its own exterior entrance. Timing is crucial when lining up to place your order– peak lunch and dinner times will see a substantial line, but it tends to move quickly.

Chicken Teriyaki Bento – grilled chicken glazed in our original handcrafted signature teriyaki sauce
Katsu Bento – panko breaded cutlet; chicken, pork or kurobuta
Katsu Curry Bowl – pork, chicken, kurobuta, shrimp or grilled burger topped with our famous chicken curry over rice
A perfect pairing could be grabbing some sashimi from Saruki next door while waiting for your order at Kaz — topped off with a lemon iced tea.
