  • 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.

    2 star review  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.

    5 star review  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!

    thumb Travis Moore

    2 star review  Not very happy with my most recent experience. I made reservations a week in advance for a party of 20 for my sons birthday. We had to wait an additional 30 mins for tables as the larger ones which seats more than 8 were occupied.we ended up with 3 tables 2 together and 1 on the other side of the room. The waitress was very unorganized and seemed confused and the chef started later than expected and was not entertaining and seemed to be in a rush. Many in my party including children had never been to a hibachi grill restaurant and I looked forward to them being excited by the chefs talents. Ive been many times and our plates were smaller than usual not enough noodles or rice and there wasnt a variety of vegetables as previous visits. Im very disappointed in our encounter last night 10/24 , I figured with a $700+ tab the experience wouldve been better.
