  • 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).

    review rating 2  The service was great. Really nice and friendly but the food made both my husband and I extremely sick. We ordered the Bacon Wrapped Scallops as an app and I attempted to take one bite and they were so hard you couldn’t chew them so we sent them back. No biggie. It happens and they were nice about it. The actual meal was OK we both agreed something tasted off with our chicken and steak. We didn’t want to complain because we sent the app back so didn’t continue to eat and didn’t take our leftovers. Now we are both home with food poisoning. Unfortunate especially for the the price.

    review rating 5  My husband and I took a class on how to make sushi. It was great! Yuichi, the sushi chef was an excellent instructor. The food that other patrons ordered looked delightful. I highly recommend Kabuto. You must try this place. Easy to find with plenty of parking.

    review rating 5  I love this place! I’ve been with my family for Hibachi (including 2 kids) and we all had a great time! My 9 year old daughter and I just took the sushi making class today with Yuichi, and it was amazing. Great experience, fun, informative, delicious, and worth every penny. I highly recommend Kabuto for a night out or a sushi class!
