    I have been dining at Kabuki for a few years now, this location seems to be better than others to me. I love the great tasting food and the prompt service. I really enjoyed the Chilean sea bass for dinner and I loved the fried green tea ice cream for dessert. It's a trendy sushi restaurant, so the prices are a little expensive but they have a happy hour menu with decent choices. Overall I like this place and would recommend it to family and friends.

    I wanted a nice reasonable place for Japanese food for lunch for my birthday. My first time here. The location in the Howard Hughes Center was very convenient for me. The service was good ...I had a 1:30 pm reservation for lunch as I wanted to miss the main lunch time crowd. The menu was extensive and the food was excellent. My Tempura was crisp, Miso soup was delicious and the Terriaki beef and chicken was also very good. Nice portions for the price. My only complaint would be tables need to be cleaned better between sittings. I think mine was just brushed off and not really cleaned with a solution of any kind. At any rate for the food, price and location, I will definitely go back.

    I guess Kabuki is the appropriate name for this restaurant, as it is not what you would expect. Just average sushi that is somewhat offset by very good service.

    We had combination plates and sushi and sashimi salad. The selection of sushi warrants a comeback to try more! The specialty rolls had more than enough to share! The steak was tender and the sashimi salad was bountiful (could've used a bit more dressing). The tempura had many shrimp and vegetables. They had quite a selection of sake, but we chose our go to favorite beer tonight - Asahi Dry. Many tvs around for my husband to enjoy watching March Madness basketball. Food came out quickly too. Service was plentiful = everyone helping each other.

    I've been to this Kabuki location several times and the food and service has consistently been good. Once the orders have been placed our soup, edamame or other appetizers all arrive quickly. Entrees arrive at the right time and portions are a good value for the price. They offer the typical entrees and combo meals, sushi and noodles but have added more gourmet items and vegan dishes too. There's something to please everyone and for us it's become our go-to Japanese comfort food spot.

    I was trying to find a great restaurant for my Mom's birthday on the way to The Forum. Kabuki was the perfect fit! The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or dinner out with friends and family.
