Overall food is usually good. Service is a big hit or miss. Tonight was a miss for our table. The cook was already cooking before we got our salads, it seemed our waitress may have forgotten them. Not much of a show from the cook. Not a wow experience versus other restaurants of the same brand.

Last week I went to a 5 star sushi restaurant that everyone in the town I'm currently visiting (not Roanoke) raved about. Let me just say that if this place is the 5 star in town, they're lucky Kabuki isn't anywhere around because they'd be out of business. Seriously the best sushi I've ever had, and I've had a lot....

Great for big night! I go almost for every birthday! It's awesome! The rice is amazing it's my favorite part! But the soup is really good and so is the salad! If your going make sure to make reservation especially for bigger party's. Never ate sushi myself but my family members enjoyed it highly.

Went early on a Monday so it was slow. Food was excellent but they don't add noodles to the vegetables. I did miss that. The chef we had did interact with my 6 yr old granddaughter but the "show" wasn't impressive. Maybe I've seen too many. I would definitely recommend it if you like hibachi. The menu is your typical... More

We ate here for a friends birthday. We had a reservation which I was thankful for...the place was packed! We had a group of 8 and they sat 2 people, not part of our group with our table. Which didn't bother us but I kinda felt bad for them. My husband and I both wanted "just veggies" but if you... More

Food was good and the presentation was entertaining. However, the pricing was a little high in my opinion. Our meals averaged about $22 per person and while we got quite a few vegetables and LOTS of rice, the quantity of meat was small for the price paid. And even though we ordered differently seasoned items (according to the menu) they... More
