Where to start? My husband has been wanting to check this place out for a while now and we finally did. We went and met a friend there and did several orders over our two hours there. The staff was excellent and paid great attention to us even with being so busy. The sashimi was amazing. We had the toro,... More

Kata Robata has really good sushi, rolls, and other Japanese dishes. It is quite loud and busy, which can make it difficult to talk as a couple. The service was friendly and helpful, but the waiter disappeared at the end of the meal. The dishes arrived in an interesting order, with no rhyme or reason. Although not intending to share... More

It was the first place I went back to when I was back in Houston this week - last visit was a year ago. Place was packed with patrons. Ate a wide variety of their great selection of Japanese food and enjoyed a truly wonderful meal this time around !

Based on prior reviews, we went expecting great food. It was even better than we had imagined. The only surprise was the bill. You rarely find this level of food, service and atmosphere for a moderate price. We will be back often.

Went for a lunch date with my wife. Sat at the sushi bar to grab a bite. I'd suggest asking about what are the current specialties. They usually have a good selection of japanese specific fish.The O-toro was good ($11/piece) Ee prefer the white fish and enjoyed the amberjack, madai, and japanese snapper. Had to mix up the nigiri with... More

Visiting family in Houston, the 6 of us (plus my 7 month old) were very excited to try after hearing wonderful things. We arrived on time for 6:45 reservation on the patio, wasn't seated for 15 minutes while we saw our table set & ready. Hostess kindly sat us finally, given menus and water. We are leisurely diners but after... More

Food was very good. Excellent service, very helpful and noted that the soy sauce on the table is gluten-free which is helpful for us because I usually need to bring a bottle since my husband has celiac disease. Only problem for us was that is was too noisy and we couldn't hear each other, so not great for us for... More

I've been here about five times over the last seven months and it's consistently good. Very well run, excellent front of the house management. Very attentive wait staff. The decor is lovely with marvelous textures wrapping around the establishment. Each area feels special and although it's busy you don't get that loud over bearing pushing feeling you get from busy...
