  • "We made a reservation for 6 people about 1 hour before we planned to arrive on a Thursday night. When we arrived we were told that we hadn't made our reservation at least 4 hours in advance and "there are other people ahead of you". I explained and showed the hostess our e-mail confirmation. She said "sorry" there are other people ahead of you at this time."

  • "Can beat good food for a decent price. This is your place. Walking around Tempe Marketplace after lunch was also super pleasant. Can go wrong with Kabuki. Cheers"

  • "Got there before happy hour ended and was able to get a couple of things at reduced prices which was nice. The happy hour menu included beer and wine. I had the wine, don't know what label it was but it was very nice. We ordered rolls after sitting there for quite a while and they were all very good. Unfortuneately, most of them were on the very spicy side so be careful what you order. Everyone else at the table loved them, they were just a little spicy for me. Will definitely go back and certainly for happy hour. 3:00 - 6:00"

  • "Our family of 6 went to Kabuki on a Monday night to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We were happy with the extensive menu and our 3 boys loved the choices on the kids menu. The kids meals filled them up and they had enough to enjoy an after school snack the next day. We were disappointed they don't offer anything when celebrating a birthday however. After spending over $100, maybe throw in a free dessert for the birthday girl."

  • "This was my third time to Kabuki, but by far the best yet! Both the sushi and sashimi were incredible and the green tea was just amazing. What separates Kabuki from other sushi restaurants, in addition to the great food, is how above and beyond the servers and staff go to make sure you enjoy your experience with them. So much fun!"

  • "Sushi was excellent quality. Prices not too bad. Seemed unorganized at the hostess table, but we got seated right away."

  • "We made the reservation on Open Table and received a confirmation by email,however upon arrival they informed us that they did not take reservations by Open Table on Friday or Saturday. The good news is they were very good to seat us very quickly and the hostess was the most gracious. In fact the hostess was more professional than we have seen most restaurants recently."

  • "Kabuki is always a great experience for us. We eat there at least twice a month and gorge ourselves on sushi for around $70 total for two."

  • "The service is very slow when busy. The hostess at the front desk was HORRIBLE. No customer service, no smile, it was like we were putting her out by wanting to come eat there. She is not someone that you need greeting your customers to say the least. We were served the wrong roll and had to wait for the other one to come out. No discount nothing for waiting another 10 mins to get a roll. UGH!"

  • "We had a party of 6 that turned into 7. It was a great dining experience. They even kicked up the a/c when one of my party began to fan herself. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. My only complaint was that the music was VERY loud. I couldn't hear half of my group. If the hostess wouldhave offered outside dining, I would've taken that. But overall, will definitely be going again."

  • "I love their sushi and I am that they are on open table now but i am getting tired of them not even looking for the reservation for lunch and crediting the points right away. Its not hard Kabuki Management. Train your people!!!!!!!! The $1 per reservation it is costing you to do Open Table is worth much more in reservations. Train you people to know that some of us are dining to get points."

  • "We had a group of 12. But could not reserve one table together. So had to put it in in 2 reservations. But when we arrived they were nice enough th accommodate and put all 8 of us together( 4 cancelled). They took a little time to get the tables ready. It was my daughters 20th Bday. Very nice setting and decor for the younger generations. Especially girls who like sushi and light healthy dishes. Very well chef'ed food. Appetizers were excellent and savory. Negative: took them 10 mins to get us forks and knives! Gotta know how to work chopsticks!"

  • "Restaurant has good food and wait staff. Had issue with hostess not having my reservation from opentable. She said, if manager doesnt check often, they dont get them. Kinda funny since reservation were made 2 weeks prior to coming. So that is ample time to receive reservations. Overall, still a good place to eat"

  • "Nothing really 'wow' you about this place, the food is okay but not great. Service is slow and not very friendly."
    Dined on 4/25/2012
  • "Great happy hour. Sushi is fresh and plentiful. Lots of fun and good choices. It's not upper scale gourmet sushi, but when you need your sushi fix, it's wonderful and priced right. We take our grandson often and he loves it too. Something for everyone,"

  • "our first time coming here, the sushi we ordered the lotus roll and dynamite was amazing. the service kind of slow in the beginning but soon it was fine. overall my fiance and i enjoyed it every much. we will come back again."

  • "Typical sushi place. Average across the board! I return when I'm close by and craving sushi otherwise not worth driving to far for."
    Dined on 8/30/2011
  • "The food itself was good but it was hard to order anything different then was on the menu as it was a sub-charge for any type of change. I find that frustrating especially if you are going to ask for a substitution that is actually cheaper then the what is on the menu."
    Dined on 2/5/2012
  • "This restaurant had a nice environment and ambiance however the food and service were both mediocre. My boyfriend did not order sushi and really enjoyed it. I would go there again except the expense for two people (32.00) was too much for average food."

  • "It's not the best sushi place in Tempe/S.Scottsdale but it is good food, albeit a bit pricey. Conveniently located in Tempe Marketplace so it's easy to stop and grab a snack... there's there lots of good food in the Tempe Marketplace to pick from!"

  • "We go to Kabuki all the time so we love the food! But I would have to say this last visit was a huge disappointment! We had reservations but still had to wait while they set up the table. The server was slow and wasn't attentive at all for only having 3 tables they were really slow and he just wasn't paying attention to us at all. We had to hunt him down for really basic things that we needed. He never even asked us how our food was. The food taste amazing but the rolls were falling apart and I have never had that happen there at all but it did that day. I love that place and will give it another chance but it really made me think where else can we go for good sushi at a good price."

  • "Food was excellent and affordably priced. Better than any other sushi place in the east valley. I understand why now it is always packed on weekends the food, the unbelievable great service, and pricing make this a must go restaurant."
