What wonderful service. Made a reservation for 8pm, we barely had a wait. I have a shrimp allergy, the host, chef, and waitress was great with accommodating my needs. Service was fast. They are a busy business, it's best to make a reservation to ensure fast seating service when arrive.

This is a good sushi restaurant, with some good prices, but it is not an amazing sushi restaurant. Nothing really blew us away, but we left very satisfied.

Ate at the sushi bar and ordered the sashimi assortment. Why is it that a supposed variety of 7-8 fish turns out to simply be tuna, salmon and whitefish? If I'm ordering a sashimi sampler, I want as many different fish as my order calls for. Quality of the sushi was fair, certainly not great. Service was ok and I... More

Kabutos is my favorite. I eat here at least once a month. This particular location has friendly staff and I love it. The food is always fast and fresh. Of course its prepared right in front of you. I also love their strawberry daq. Perfect for big events or a solo lunch.

This place would be great if they would just put some of their profit into fixing it up....yikes. Was worried about cleanliness but since they cook the food right in front of you you can make sure it's cooked. Service was slow..girls standing in the kitchen hallway while dirty dishes weren't picked up.. Not cheap either..

Firstly, the word Japanese should be struck from the title, the only remotely Japanese thing in the restaurant is a Samurai sword in a case and some embroidery on the chefs hat ( it probably said "Front"). Like most American World themed restaurant you can only tell which country your meant to be in by the pictures hanging on the... More

Nakato and Kabuto are the only Hibachi restaurants In familiar with in the university area. If I had to choose, Kabuto wins on flavor and quantity. Half priced sushi night is good. The manager is always nice. The hibachi is flavorful, and the show is entertaining, but can be a little uncomfortable with the excessive flirting from the chefs.

Great showmanship, our 5 year old was enthralled. BUT the food was not that great. Not much flavor but fresh and cooked right. Go for the show, not the food.

We have enjoyed Kabuto's for several years. We get great service and it is fun to interact with the chef's. Have never had a bad meal. Some chef's are more entertaining than others but that is okay as you can enjoy watching all of them. The food is good and plentiful.
