Description: Rated "A" by the Palm Beach Post, Kabuki is a stunning modern Asian eatery enhanced by decorative lighting fixtures that create a dimly-lit, inviting atmosphere. There's a long, full liquor bar and a sushi bar in the rear of the restaurant which provides an opportunity to watch the sushi chefs in action. The menu is large and varied, offering both cooked and raw dishes, with an emphasis on small plates. You'll find everything from Thai-style Spring Rolls to Asian Empanadas. There's also a wide selection of Nigiri sushi and rolls as well as noodle and rice dishes, curries and stir-fries. Teriyaki dishes can be savored from the Japanese grill, along with a handful of entrees such as the succulent Crispy Duck or whole Fried Snapper, plus creative desserts like Thai Donuts with dipping sauce and Banana Tempura with ice cream.

“Good sushi!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Me and my friend went for dinner and we loved the restaurant. It was very good sushi, good size as well for a very reasonable price. I would recommend the Brazilian roll. The service was good, the food came fast, and the atmosphere is nice. The Thai menu has lots of varieties, all curries and the pad Thai from the next table was looking very good, which I am definitely going back for!!

“Good, but wee bit pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Here's my amateur summary & review:
The Food - Great!!! Well presented, fresh, tight rolls. Can't go wrong with any of the rolls
The Price - Total w/o tip = $75, On the high side, guess the rent is high on Clematis. Same quality/portions as Yu-Mi, but much more expensive.
Service - Mixed, first server was average at best, but hostess & second waitress were perfect.
Atmosphere - Wild card. Great when we started & ended, but in the middle we had obnoxious folks doing group shots with the bartender.
Overall - Definitely a keeper & one of our regulars
What we had:
Appetizer - Crispy tofu ($6), bland not very good
Me - Avocado maki ($4 each x 2, small so I ordered 2:) & tuna jalapeño roll ($12), freakn awesome
Girlfriend - Sugar mama roll (half portion $9), Empire roll ($14), & Eel hand roll ($8)
2 glasses wine ($12), delicious

“Best Curries in West Palm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We love Kabuki. Although they offer sushi and other Thai staples, their curries are fantastic. Actually, I've only eaten one, but it's so good I haven't bothered to try anything else, and I'm actually planning on buying a kettle of their Masaman Curry base. The menu offers a variety of curry bases to which you add your choice of shrimp, tofu, chicken etc. and then choose your degree of hottness.

“Tasty lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Stopped by for Sunday lunch. $12 menu included a choice of rolls, an entree, soup or salad. Went with spicy tuna, chicken Penang, and house salad. Spicy sauce was more like a sweet chilli on the tuna - didn't really have a kick. Plentiful, though - 8 pcs.

Penang was decent, although asked for it 'pet' (spicy) and it came fairly mild. Good flavour, not quite authentic. Was offered brown rice which is a plus. House salad was the standard fare with ginger dressing.

Partner had chicken teriyaki. Was tasty but not quite authentic. Overall, very good value for $30 inc. tax + tip.
