Kazunori

Located on Chino Roces in Makati, the sushi bar is known for offering omakase experiences.

However, the gastronomic experience is reserved for guests dining-in only, but Kazunori offers a wide selection on their delivery menu.

There are premium sashimi staples like uni, salmon, toro, and squid. For those that enjoy traditional sushi roll, they offer salmon and Ebi tempura variations.

If you’re craving a bento box, Kazunori can also make the sets with tori karaage, tonkatsu, and ebi fry.
