  • Order the chicken, shrimp, or lobster; they're wonderful!
  • Probably the best Japanese steakhouse experience I've had in a long time. Certainly beats out the genre-creating Benihana. Food quality is high and the service is outstanding. Nice sushi selection as well.

  • It's hard to bring kids to a hibachi restaurant (3/4 kids today ordered chicken tenders and fries...). However it is not hard here. The chef kept the kids engaged even though they were just eating fries and our waitress wrote their names in japanese on their cups. Chefs here talk to us a lot more and keep us more entertained than any other hibachi restaurant in the area. Highly recommended for families.
  • Lunch specials are great. Came here 20+ years ago and still love it!. GINGER DRESSING
  • We visited Kabutos last night for my grandparents 56th wedding anniversary and my step fathers birthday and we had the most wonderful time! The server, Jordan, was so nice and very quick to help with what we needed. The chef was also very awesome and did EVERY trick in the book and kept us laughing our whole dinner. At the end of the meal we took a group photo and on our way out, was presented with not one, but TWO copies of our photos in cards.THANK YOU, Kabuto for such a wonderful experience.

  • Wow, best service I've ever had! Drinks were never ONCE left unfilled! The sushi was super delicious for the price (some rolls are misses, but the more expensive ones are very usually GREAT). Order the chicken, shrimp, or lobster; they're wonderful!. If you get any steak or mignon, make sure to repeat your "doneness" preference right before the chef cooks it (large audiences mean sometimes forgetful chefs).

  • Awesome :-). We had a great time.

    5 star review  Great service and very peaceful environment. You get tons of food. The food especially the vegetables are delicious!! Currently they are not cooking in front of you but you can hear the click click of spatulas and knives. They also deliver.

    4 star review  Took our children here for their first Hibachi experience. The food and table service were excellent. Our experience was void of a greeting or pleasantries whatsoever at the door. If I were made of different stuff I'd have walked out right then and missed this dining experience. First impressions still matter though, step up the initial phase of the guest experience to get a 5th star from me Kabuto.

    2 star review  Today I ordered from the lunch menu. My salad was green on top and BROWN lettuce on the bottom. DISGUSTING!! I'm glad I transferred the salad to my bowl before eating it. I called the manager. NO APOLOGY. He wants to give me an extra salad or soda next time. What next time??? Poor customer service.

    4 star review  Delicious, but maybe with the influx of to go orders, expect your order to take a little longer than the app says.

    4 star review  We went for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and has a great ambience. The food was absolutely delicious (the best yum yum sauce and soup I’ve ever tasted). The cook was great and definitely interacted with us. The waitress wasn’t too friendly, didn’t seem like she wanted to be there, so that’s the reason for the 4 star rating. We will definitely be visiting again!

    5 star review  Ordered takeout as I’ve read nothing but great reviews. Let me preface this review with how amazing the food was! Huge portions, nicely packaged, and it came out hot. My steak was cooked perfectly, the fried rice tasted fresh and the veggies were seasoned well. I will definitely be coming back.

    3 star review  I love hibachi and this place was no exception to good basic hibachi. I really disliked the customer service from whom I’m assuming was the owner/manager. I came into the store after ordering through the app (which is a little glitchy) and instead of servicing me, she sat back in her chair while I went to grab my own food. I asked her if I could have a to go salad without the dressing container inside, due to it touching surfaces and then it being on top of the lettuce. She told me something about bleach and how it was clean, instead of just grabbing me a fresh salad without a dressing container in it. So, I walked out pretty displeased and won’t be returning. I’d rather go to another hibachi place with good service

    5 star review  We ordered takeout for our family tonight. Two dishes from the Hibachi Grill and one order of chicken tenders and fries. It was delicious! We have eaten a lot of takeout during the pandemic and this was by far the best meal we have had, it tasted the same as if we were eating at the restaurant.Our food was ready right on time and brought out to our car. We live about 15 mins from the restaurant and we sat down to eat as soon as we got home. All of our food was hot and even the fries were crispy.We had been holding off from ordering since it is takeout only and we would miss the in person experience but this was so good we will be ordering again soon.

    5 star review  Menu has changed slightly and they're not doing the entertainment. Still fantastic tasting food, and the best hibachi in Richmond.
