sushi kaji - which price point?

hi all,

I will going for my first time next weekend and was wondering if anyone has been there more than once to have the $80, $100 and $120 menu.

a) How much food do you get at $80 or $100
b) it is worth upgrading to the $100? let alone the $120?

Thanks

  1. I have had all three, and each one is a step up that is worth the money (to me). All of them satisfied my hunger, with the most expensive menu bordering on being too much food (for me). Cost isn't much of an option for me, so I just order it based on how hungry I am!

    Also note that he has been known to serve truncated menus on nights during the middle of the week when they aren't busy, so if the price is scary, you could see if they'll let you do that.

    1. I've always enjoyed the food at Kaji so I always order the $120; I don't want to miss anything. I concede it's too much food (not even bordering for my belly). Usually the S.O. gets the $80 meal to compensate since she cannot eat a lot. We end up splitting the additional meals and still walk away totally stuffed. One time we felt so bad about wasting we ate the fish and not the rice from the sushi - Kaji gave us a very strange look but we explained we were really full.

      1. The $120 is also too much food for me. I feel like I waste the nigiri sushi as they are the last course and it is hard to finish it.

        1. When I went, my partner ordered the $120 and I had the $100, that way we got different dishes for some of the courses. It seemed like we got about the same food; both of us thought it was high value, perhaps his ingredients were worth more in the end. It was a LOT of food. I would still order the same thing again, but I didn't need to eat agian for like two years.

            I took my SO for his birthday a few years ago. We ordered the $120 meals and were uncomfortably stuffed. We could have stopped 2 courses before the end. I wish it were possible to leave off the dessert course, as well as anything deep fried. I'd still be willing to pay $120 if I could have a meal that was mostly sushi and sashimi-based. In fact, I'd be in hog heaven!

          2. I must have a monster appetite or something. I've had the $120 twice and it was nowhere near too much food for me. Don't get me wrong, it was totally worth the money.

            Then again I am an athlete but still, I could probably eat two of his $120 dinners.

            For the record I'm about 5'9 and 170 lbs (but everyone thinks I'm about 140).

              I'm with you on this one. I had the $120 and was comfortably full. FYI, I'm 5'4 and under 110lbs, but I have a voracious appetite ;)

                I've had the $120 twice as well, and I walked out feeling satisfied, but not full. My GF went with me once and she finished the $120 meal without feeling too full either, she is around 5'4 @ 100lbs... you guys have such small appeties, just call me next time you cant finish it and ill come polish it off.
