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.

I don't think you go to Kabuto for steamed vegetables. Everything is stir fried in butter on a large grill.
