Excellent Japanese restaurant

This was a typical Japanese restaurant with cooking done in front of you. There were many choices available, the food was good and plentiful and the prices were reasonable.

This was my husbands and I first visit, and it will probably be the last. We had a reservation for 9pm. Got there at 8:50 didn't get called back until 9:30. While we waited we sat in the bar area and the way the "bartender" was doing the drinks was very unprofessional. Multiple times he would dig his fingers in... More

My husband, daughter and I went to Kabuto to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was our first visit. The atmosphere was great and we found all the employees friendly and accommodating. The food was very good. Typical hibachi food, however the portions are huge. An added treat was the cooked bananas at the end of the meal. Delicious! We told... More

My family and I have been 3 times in the past couple weeks for lunch (dinner is a bit pricey in my opinion at these types of restaurants in general). It was delicious each and every time. Some cooks are more entertaining than others, but all have been good. We had 1 bad waiter that really didn't seem like he... More

Thank you for your review and I definitely appreciate the honesty! I think I know which server you had and he no longer works for us, for that reason. We have always had the frequent diner cards and try and hand them out to our loyal customers, and I would definitely consider you one so I apologize that it was... More

I thought Kabuto's hibachi experience would be similar to Beni Hana's. What a mistake! The portions are huge... I mean huuuuuuge. One dish could feed around 4. But it doesn't taste as good as BH either. The price is OK. Be prepared to throw your clothes in the washing machine after leaving the restaurant!

Apologies that we aren't entirely like the restaurant you're used to going to. We are a traditional teppanyaki style Japanese steakhouse, most of which are known for the large portion sizes. We do offer a split plate option as well if you didn't want as much food, or I recommend coming at lunch, the portion sizes are a bit smaller... More

Nice Teppanyaki style option for Greensboro. Fresh, reasonably priced and clean. The restaurant is always busy - the food stays fresh.

We are here while passing through Greensboro. It was not bad but it was nothing special. One odd thing - there was an off duty police officer working inside. It made us wonder if this was a dangerous area or if they are just cautious. They also are clearly trying to get people in and out as quickly as possible.... More

We're sorry your experience at Kabuto was no more than average, but hopefully it was at least enjoyable for you! Since you were wondering about the off duty police officer, they usually come on weekends due to an increased amount of customer walk outs (walking out without paying their bill) during our busiest nights. We are located right off of... More

Great Japanese Steak house. We had a wait of about 30 minutes, but when we sat down they took very good care of us. Once we ordered our chef was out there quickly and prepared our food in an excellent manner. the food was very good and the prices were even better. If you are looking for good Japanese Hibachi,...
