Absolutely loved this restaurant. The decor and atmosphere is bright, chic and delightful. The food is delicious...Enjoyed lunch here w/my daughter and 2 friends. There is a very extensive menu with something for everyone. Moderately priced, it's easy to get carried away and order way too much food!

Tristan was our server and he was just wonderful. Highly recommend trying Kabuki!

OK, look, we see a movie almost every Sunday. Bella Terra is one of our favorite spots. Kabuki is right there next to the theater ... seemingly a good chain sushi experience waiting to happen at 8pm, 9pm on a Sunday night. Well, maybe ... if you fit their idea of beautiful people. We happen to be in our 50s, reasonably attractive, and well groomed. That means we get sat (by the very young hostess) in the far back of the restaurant ... outer Mongolia ... after being walked past no less than 10 open booths. And dozens of very young people. On two separate visits we were ignored by waitstaff, until we asked a busboy to send us help. The food, when it finally came, was mediocre at best ... late night tired (rolls, miso soup and salad). On one of these occasions, we were seated behind a loud family birthday party that had gone on too long ... and were similarly overlooked. It's pretty obvious they don't want "senior types" like us muddling their hip image. We won't be back ... instead we'll drive over to Tsunami or someplace else that values our business.

As locals, we frequent this place relatively often. The dishes, although somewhat pricey since the latest price hike (around 15% for many dishes!) are most often good and quality seems to be somewhat consistent for a chain restaurant.

What is not consistent is the service. On our last trip, I received the wrong dinner. Then we had to ask the waitress for everything, while she was busy carrying on conversations with the staff at the register. Sometimes you get soybeans to start out, sometimes not. This time, we had to ask for wasabi and ginger, which normally comes right with the soybeans. Later, when the Hibachi meal was served, we had to ask for dipping sauces, which on other occasions were served right with the meal. No water was brought to the table, I probably had to ask for that too. Our bill arrived at the table before my wife had finished eating, a total rudeness. I fear Kabuki's star is falling. Thumbs down right now.

Mother and I often eat at the Kabuki located in the Bella Terra Mall. We love their food and points program (RED MASK CLUB).
