I have been coming this restaurant for long time. I like their happy hour with variety choices. Most of their waiter/waitress are good but one of the waitress keep making mistakes of our receipt and change. Sushi is pretty good. I wish they have some sushi without of top if California rolls.

First time to Kabuki and the whole dining experience was great. The menu has quite a variety of Japanese food from sushi to compete dinners such as salmon/chicken. Once our order was taken the food came very soon. The quality of food was excellent. The waitress was also very good and kept coming back and checking if we needed anything.... More

We have been eating at Kabuki for more than 25 years. There have been changes in menu, cooks, decor; however, the food has always been very good. the calamari rings are delicious. We enjoy the "happy hour" specials on the menu.

We went to Kabuki at 9:00pm on a Friday night. They were jammed and there was a wait. We went to the sushi bar, had a delightful and fast dinner, and were out of there in 30 minutes. Food is fresh, service is nice and fast and ambiance is good.

Let's start with the Mojitos. If you're looking for a traditional rum-based Mojito, this might not be for you. I had not looked at the drink menu when my boyfriend ordered his Mojito and since I love Mojitos, I ordered a berry flavored one (my bf had mint). After I tasted it, I looked at the menu (totally my fault)... More

Kabuki is a joy to visit. The menu is expansive and there is also an "R&D" menu where they try out new dishes (and you pay to be the guinea pig). The service is fast and the food is fresh and very tasty. The portions are decent size although we didn't have too much left-overs, but that was because the... More

This is the first time I have eaten @ Kabuki, even though I have known about it for what seems like ages. We went here, because we were hungry, we had just left another restaurant (without eating) and it was there & caught our notice! The hostess was lovely & friendly, she pointed out which were the best

A popular, fun place for a wide variety of Japanese food- some standard and some creative fare. Noisy and busy, this is not the place for fine omakase dining. Flip through the extensive, colorful menu and enjoy creative rolls, kale salad, stir fried veggies and marinated sashimi salad.
