We enjoy Japanese food for lunch or dinner & while in the area, decided to enjoy lunch here. We haven't been back in this area or eaten here in a while but the food was just as delicious as always. We will return the next trip to the area.

We usually take a group for a birthday lunch at eat at the tables where they cook and it is always great. We also have smaller private meetings and eat on the other side where they don't cooke at the tables and it is always great too.

We really loved this restaurant. The food was so fresh and seasoned amazingly. We had a suite at our hotel so we took our leftovers back to our hotel. There was so much food that we ate from them for 3 days. I had a dish with steak, shrimp and scallops. The beef was SO tender, the shrimp was the... More

I've been going to Kabuto every time I visited Charlotte, so that's a couple of times within the past six years. I've only tried their Hibachi grill so cannot rate their other dishes. The Hibachi grill they make is excellent and entertaining since the chef cooks the dishes on the grill in the middle of the tables. Great taste and... More

As far as service and friendliness, these guys were first rate ... that alone however doesn't make a great dining experience... as far as hibachi food goes this particular evening we would have had better at a drive thru ... the soup was way to salty, the salad wasn't crisp, and the fried rice had zero flavor, the vegetables were...

A great location that offers wonderful food options. I love sushi and the sushi that I got there was aesthetically pleasing and tasty too! They also have a hibachi grill but if you want the food from one, but don't want to experience the preparation experience that comes with it, you can order from it and have it brought to... More

A great meal with a great chef ....he's not your typical Japanese Hibachi chef. He is just as good and performed as well as I have seen a Japanese chef perform they're typical tricks.He also prepared a outstanding meal that included the most delectable shrimp and lobster I have had in sometime. Who is the chef...I am referring to ,... More

I was really tired from traveling and this place was very close to the Residence Inn so I want in and sat at the bar. I decided to forego the sushi and sashimi and had some Japanese tapas. It was fine based on what I ordered I also ordered a couple of domestic beer and as impressed that they were... More

On a Thursday night it was very quiet 10 - 15 customers. Recieved a warm and friendly greeting an was quickly seated. With several Hibachi tables and standard tables and a sushi bar there is something for everyone. I chose the sushi bar and was impressed. They have the standards as well as chef specialities. Drinks and sushi and sashimi... More
