Travel to Orlando regularly and have dined all over the city from Disney to downtown to winter park and everything in between. Kabooki is the best dining experience I’ve had in Orlando hands down! I hit it every time I’m in town and take coworkers and clients although I wouldn’t recommend taking a large group there (4 or less). It’s awesome but quaint. Comparable to high-end sushi restaurants in NY, SF, etc, but with a low-key understated vibe. Little pricey for Orlando but well worth it considering the unique food takes and cool atmosphere.

Did you know that they have "Social Hour" (aka happy hour) on Sundays!? We didn't, and were pleasantly surprised. We sat at the sushi bar, where we love to watch the masters work. Ordered several items from the Social Hour menu, plus the Special Roll from the Chef's menu. As usual, everything was delicious!

Almost certainly the best sushi I've had in Orlando - tight fit inside, very noisy, which was a little intense but absolutely worth it.

I eat out quite a bit and rarely complain about eating at any restaurant.
Quite frankly, this is my first time writing a review of any restaurant?
Kabooki was way overpriced for sushi.
They were just trying too hard.
Most of their sashimi offerings were too exotic.
Service - inexperience servers.
I highly do not recommend Kabooki.

After everything I've read, I expected more. The menu was very limited for a sushi place but we decided to try the most mentioned item in reviews, maguro truffle, even though it seemed very expensive for a starter at $21. It was good, but I can't say it was worth $21. The couple next to us (and I mean right next us - we had to squeeze in between the tables to sit down) ordered the hot rock and it seemed to take a long time for them to actually eat (one piece of meat at a time on the rock it was so small) and then they had to ask for a new, hotter rock before they finished. The gyoza was good but a bit too doughy. We ordered the spicy tuna roll and the booki booki roll and they were again, good, but not great. I've had really great sushi for less. Two glasses of wine and one beer and our meal was already up to $100 and we were still hungry. We left to go have dessert somewhere else.

SIMPLY THE BEST!! Its amazing the standard that Kabooki creates.....once you go there...they become the benchmark that you look at all Sushi places. Great service, and excited to hear they are going to have a bit more room in this space. We have tried the Sandlake Kabooki....but still prefer this one.

Sushi is routine nowadays. Good sushi is not. Kabooki Sushi is excellent in every way. I always order sashimi from them and always pleased. They have fish not found in your routine everyday sushi places. Presentation is exceptional. Wait service is great and knowledgeable. Going back for sure.

The food was amazing and our server was fantastic. We ordered more food after we finished our original order because we just had to have more, even though we were already full! The chill roll and hamachi heat were our favorites but everything was delicious! We will definitely return the next time we are in Orlando!

Great Food !
The service was not great for two reasons
1st because it is necessary for a server to understand that when the food is first delivered it is very important to stay focused on the table to make sure the food is as expected but more so in case that an additional item my be needed like a condiment, knife, fork etc. not to serve the food and disappear. The other issue for sure is that a high end restaurant as this is should definitely have more servers so more attention can be paid to each table.

If you're looking for the best sushi in town that is not a fixed price meal (there is one restaurant in town that serves some of the best sushi in the country), Kabooki is it. The seafood is fresh, beautifully presented, and everything tastes great. If you want an amazing experience, eat at the bar and reserve the chef's table.
