“nice and quiet, with decent food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is a Chinese-Japanese restaurant. The Chinese food is the standard stuff you find in many places. There is also a sushi bar, which is quite good, especially for a buffet. The pieces of fish are smaller than in dedicated sushi restaurants, but you can get all you want. Kichi is a good compromise for a group where not everyone loves sushi.

“Great variety and reasonable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I go here regularly. I love their sushi and the variety of foods available (all you can eat). I haven't had a disappointment yet!

“Excellent sushi, food, and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Kabuki was a welcomed change in sushi restaurants when we first tried it out. We love sushi and are always looking for new places to try. As we were driving by and saw the sign we decided to try it.

“Work on the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

The restaurant is very nice. The service was first class. They must have improved since some of the other reviews I read above. As far as the food ok at best. I did not eat the sushi (do not believe in eating sushi that is on a buffet). But as far as all the other food it was ok. The habichi did not have any rice, they left the shrimp tails on, and the shrimp sauce sucks. I will not be back. My bill was $12.00 because they had an aniversary special (%15 off).

“Quality has changed! Will not be returning :-(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

We have been at Kichi several times since it has opened and noticed that food quality has steadily gone down. Many items on the buffet have been removed. The maki sishi (rolled sushi) was terrible. The rice was hard.

The waitress who served us was clearly annoyed, didn't listen to our request for drinks and brought items we did not order. Truly disappointed with our last visit. Save your hard earned money and eat elsewhere. Very disappointed :-(
