Good, but Apparently Uneven

When they opened, this was the best faux Japanese restaurant south of Haruki. The chef actually knew something about Japanese food, and the couple of times we ordered a kaiseki chef-s choice meal, it was excellent--and I've been to Japan several times. I've read the recent negative reviews, and... read more

We come here all the time for a quick lunch at the bar. We love the sushi rolls and their miso soup. The bartenders are very friendly (except for one guy who has the personality of a piece of wood) and always are fun to talk to, last time we went the bartender told us about a underground concert with...

No one would normally associate Wakefield with fine Asian dining, but we've got two Thai restaurants.

We went with another couple. The staff was friendly and service very good. However, the food was just fair. Wonton soup was fair at best. Mostly broth that had a peppery taste and only 3, very small and doughy won tons. ($5). The fried spring roll (2 very thin rolls). We ordered spicy tuna roll (not very spicy) and only... More

I had previously written a review for this restaurant citing good food but very poor service.Since writing that review I have eaten at Kabuki several times and must say that the service has greatly improved.The food is as good as ever.I will definitely be returning to this restaurant.

I attended a Chamber of Commerce Business Networking Event at this restaurant earlier this evening. The restaurant set up a "sample buffet" of their menu items for us to try. It was excellent. Ron

Soft shell crab, cream cheese and jalapeno sounds a bit weird at first but it might be one of my mouth's happiest combination of flavors! They are a tad pricey, but the sushi is fresh and delicious and they have a few pretty unique choices.

We hadn't been in a while, so decided to stop in on a Saturday night. They offered both the regular menu and a late night menu. We ordered the things we always used to get, and everyhting was bad. The rocky shrimo tempura was cold, soggy and over sauced. The three rolls we got - golden apple, spicy tuna and... More

This used to be one of the best restaurants in town! The food tonight was absolutely horrible! The menu has changed as well. The service was good tonight but not very pleased with the food. The quality of the food went downhill and the portions have shrunk too. The angry dragon roll which is usually excellent was inedible tonight. We... More
