Family had dinner at Kabuto's on 20 Jan 17 and we couldn't be happier with both the Service (Taylor) and the Chef (Mike). They made our evening, happy, cheerful, professional, and Outstanding performance. Mike did things we have not seen other Japanese Kitchen Chefs do and it was so very entertaining. Taylor was just the Sweetest thing and such a... More

We have been big fans of Kabuto's for years but after our last visit sadly I don't think we will be returning. Both my husband and I had different meals but the same types of salad and we were both sick within an hour of eating dinner here...like running to the toilet sick. We think it may have been something... More

We're very disheartened to hear that you and your husband felt ill recently. This is the first that we are hearing about any issues with our guests' meals that might have affected their health. Our guidelines for maintaining a clean kitchen and keeping our food fresh and at correct temperatures should prevent any of these issues from occurring. We are... More

We've probably all been to a Japanese steakhouse at some point. My wife and I have been there so many times, we could almost recite the chefs hibachi table script . Trouble is the young chef called himself "Some Yung Guy." He spoke about the juevos people ate in his home country of Japan. Problem is that both he and... More

We have been to several Japanese Steakhouses in Michigan and other places. We always comment that the portions get smaller and smaller each visit. The portions were large and very tasty. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Seems that plenty of people like kabuto. Has been here a very long time. The show is entertaining. Do you like lots and lots and lots of rice with soy sauce. Then this is for you. Do you also like stir fried veggies with soy sauce. Then this is for you. Anything else on the menu is probably not going... More

Went with a whole gang of relatives - we filled up the table. The cooking show was okay - the 8-year old certainly enjoyed it. I think everyone except my wife and I enjoyed their food.

Food was good, and plentiful, but the show from our chef was lacking compared to the table behind us. We were there for 2 kids birthdays (out of town, visiting with family).
