Description: Awarded "A" Grade from the Palm Beach Post and rated "Excellent" by Zagat, Kabuki is a stunning modern Asian eatery enhanced by decorative lighting fixtures that create a dimly-lit, inviting atmosphere. There's a long, full liquor bar and a sushi bar in the rear of the restaurant which provides an opportunity to watch the sushi chefs in action. The menu is large and varied, offering both cooked and raw dishes, with an emphasis on small plates. You'll find everything from Thai-style Spring Rolls to Asian Empanadas. There's also a wide selection of Nigiri sushi and rolls as well as noodle and rice dishes, curries and stir-fries. Teriyaki dishes can be savored from the Japanese grill, along with a handful of entrees such as the succulent Crispy Duck or whole Fried Snapper, plus creative desserts like Thai Donuts with dipping sauce and Banana Tempura with ice cream.

“Tasty lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Stopped by for Sunday lunch. $12 menu included a choice of rolls, an entree, soup or salad. Went with spicy tuna, chicken Penang, and house salad. Spicy sauce was more like a sweet chilli on the tuna - didn't really have a kick. Plentiful, though - 8 pcs.

Penang was decent, although asked for it 'pet' (spicy) and it came fairly mild. Good flavour, not quite authentic. Was offered brown rice which is a plus. House salad was the standard fare with ginger dressing.

Partner had chicken teriyaki. Was tasty but not quite authentic. Overall, very good value for $30 inc. tax + tip.

“The perfect panang curry.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Downtown restaurants come and go and the quality is hit or miss. Some places, like Rocco's Tacos next door, succeed on their atmosphere more than their food. But lunch at Kabuki nails it. My panang was hot, as I requested, not barely spicy, the vegetables were fresh and perfectly cooked, not soggy. The presentation was beautiful and it was a lot of food. This and soup or salad for a 9 dollar lunch special - cant be beat! The sushi looked very good, I'm trying that next time.

“I love this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

My first time eating there was approximately 3 months ago. I have been going back just about everyday since. The food is impeccable. The service I am a stickler for. I have experienced every waiter/waitress there, and they are great! I love this restaurant!

“Sushi Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Got to go to Kabuki today for the first time and i was very satisfied with the food and service.
We were a lunch celebration 2 birthdays and we had 8 people, staff found us a big enough table at a busy time of the day.
GreAt JB rolls sushi and i also had their beef Pat Thai.
portions are perfect both salad or soup are a great choice.

Lunch menu specials is the way to go, you your choice of 2 different sushi or a cooked meal option.

i would definately would go back.
You cant go wrong with Kabuki

“Amazing.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The sushi rolls are massive and have a tremendous amount of fish in them. The fish is fresh and the rolls are inventive and extremely appetizing without being hosed down with every sauce most sushi places will do. Recommend x100, best sushi I have come across in the WPB area (still have to try Yu-Mi.)
