Great lunch!We dropped in at the weekend for a spot of lunch and were excited to find a 'happy hour' lunch menu with some great rolls (especially the Tiger Eye, which we had to order two of). We started with the ceviche and a lobster salad, which were both fantastic and then moved on to the rolls, which were all very tasty. To drink we had the excellent ginger beer and a mocktail of lemonade, cucumber and mint. Exactly what was needed for a hot day. An exceptional meal and just what we wanted, fresh, different, filling but not too much!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA RegularI would like to say that I am a regular there, but it's more like Kata Robata is my regular place! I go there so often and LOVE it everytime. Lobster Mac and Pork Belly with the egg is what I get every time. I also LOVE the happy prices. Crunchy rolls and tuna tar tar start off the night perfectly. I come back at least once a month.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious sushiWe always have a great experience at Kata. We highly recommend the scallops! Their fish is always super fresh.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceThe food was outstanding, timely, and they had some new innovative dishes. Sean was our server and he was fantastic, he knew a lot about the food and gave good reccomendations. It was little loud but I would blame it on a couple of girls. But other than that it was a great experience.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Overall Sushi in HoustonTo keep this simple, I agree with the Sushi Club of Houston that this is the best overall sushi and japanese experience in Houston.
Yes, I would say that Uchi may be a more "special" experience, however in terms of quality ingredients, rice flavor, balance of flavor, knowledge of wait staff, customer service, speed of service, and price, Kata Robata beats anything else around.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably some of the bestProbably some of the best sushi in town, and well priced!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ordered the 9 course tasting.We ordered the 9 course tasting.

Impeccable service and unique options both on food and cocktails!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & Waiters- NOT HostessesGreat Food, great waiter, great happy hour. Hostesses are nasty & RUDE. Restaurant should focus on hiring more genuine hostesses with some class as it does reflect on the restaurant...4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe omakase was splendid andThe omakase was splendid and we had a great time celebrating my first night out since having a baby and recovering from my surgeries. This is my favorite sushi restaurant in Houston.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was creative andThe food was creative and artistically realized. Chef Hori truly is an outstanding sushi chef. Our waiter, whose name I sadly never caught because of the noise, was well-versed in the menu and offered excellent recommendations that were focused on helping us have a wonderful dining experience, rather than pushing us to specific items. The one disappointment was that Chef Leung was not present to create a dessert that would have complemented our meal better than the menu desserts.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. Creative andExcellent food. Creative and fresh. A real winner. Not as elegant but Uchi level food with the ability to make a reservation.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food with a wonderfulgreat food with a wonderful wine list. we will return often4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood soulution to a mistakeThank you for your attention to our table when a glitch in the order delayed a dish.

You made our meal a very special occasion..4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMstill an amazing place to eatThis is my wife & my favorite sushi restaurant in houston. We're always excited to look at the specials of the day. My wife & I are adventurous eaters & are always willing to try new items no matter how unusual they may be. We have visited pretty much every highly rated sushi restaurant in Houston & we always look forward to coming back to Kata. This restaurant has a modern take on sushi - the good traditional sushi menu is their in addition to the modern, edgy take on sushi. The Kata-jito drinks are amazing - Our favorites are the bone marrow, foie gras & scallops, & 72 hr cooked kobe beef. We prefer this place over Uchi. The service is always excellent. It is best to book reservations if possible though to avoid a long wait.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good, there justThe food was good, there just wasn't a lot of it. VERY small portions. However the service was impeccable and the scene was nice.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest sushi in Houston. ExtremelyBest sushi in Houston. Extremely helpful waitstaff during off-peak hours and lunch time. Friday and Saturday nights can be hectic, and the service will suffer slightly, depending on the waiter/waitress you get. Be sure to make a reservation during peak hours, or you'll have a significant wait, and be prepared to spend some time parking, since the lot gets pretty full.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPepper that Tuna, SonI ordered the rice dish,'Pork Don' and the Ramen, and it was so delicious! Great items. However the Sunlight dish- slices of peppercorn tuna with truffle oil wasn't very pleasing. Too much pepper and the truffle didn't really do too well with it. This may be due to the way it was served. Don't get the Sushi of this dish, be sure to ask for the sashimi. Overall a very generous place; comforting, unique, and a delightful resturaunt to be served at.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been there severalWe have been there several times.

Also every dish we had was pretty amazing. The foie gras was to die for. Some of the best sake I've ever had. 10/10 would dine again.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to Kata Sunday nightI went to Kata Sunday night and I just wanted to rave about what a wonderful experience I had. My server Lily was lovey and sweet. The food was amazing. I can't wait to go back!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a date night here,We had a date night here, and thought it was pretty good - but we won't RUSH back to try it again. We had several plates. the sushi rolls (we had the Rising Sun roll and the Longhorn roll) were excellent. The slow cooked Kobe beef was incredible. We tried the amberjack and fois gras dish, apparently it is award winning. We were disappointed. It was fine, but we will not order it again. If we do go back, we are sticking with the sushi (and the kobe beef). Oh yeah, servings are small - tapas style. EXCEPT the lobster mac and cheese is huge. It is pretty good, as well, but I would save my stomach space and calories for the sushi and beef.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe rolls are very tasty.The rolls are very tasty. Saki nice and warm. Very good couples place.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
