As one of my favorite restaurants, I invited friends to enjoy an early dinner before attending a concert at Plaza Live. The daily specials as described by our server immediately solved the problem of what to order first. We then order some favorites of mine from the menu. The service was excellent. The food delivery just a little slower than we would have liked. However, the food presentation, complexity and deliciousness was perfection.

Food was really good, but a bit high priced. It is jam packed in there with table placement, which would deter me from going back at peak times.

This was a “very special” experience. It was our first time at the restaurant. We sat at the Sushi Bar and had an absolutely wonderful experience. Each of the chefs eagerly explained the different seafood species being prepared. We will definitely make frequent return visits.

If you are ever looking for high end ($$$) sushi - Kabooki is really, truly amazing. On my way out I heard a lady say, “this is the best sushi I’ve ever eaten. Ever.” I rave about and love Shari sushi but really think this is even better. We kept it fairly simple tonight and just shared some rolls. Our favorite is the Hawaii X.O roll. Reservations highly recommended.

Good food but so much other stuff going on that you really can't taste the fish. If you are a sushi purist, this is not the place for you.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday dinner and we split an order of the oysters, the blue fin tuna tasting, the morawase and the fried chicken. Everything was fantastic! The oysters appended to be my favorite (Kumamoto’s) so that was a nice treat. The service was attentive and helpful without being pushy. Def be back soon!

Portions are smaller than what you'd find at a typical sushi place, but IT IS AWESOME. The rolls I had were superbly seasoned from with the actual ingredients they were made from, not just slathered with 3 different sauces to make it taste good. As a matter of fact, there is little to no sauce put on them that I could see. It wasn't just the rolls, it was everything, from the green tea to the fritters. Simply amazing, and I look forward to trying their other menu items in the future. Come here for real gourmet sushi, leave the other "sushi" places for your casual fix.

I would Absolutely recommend this restaurant! We don't go there often, but when we do, the service is always top notch. They know all about the fish and ingredients. The fish is fresh and they always have good chef suggestions. If you appreciate good sushi, and you don't want to just pay high prices for atmosphere, then you need to try kabooki. It's small, which is part of what makes it great I think, so make sure you make a reservation.

Seriously this is the ONLY Sushi restaurant that you need to visit in Orlando. We tried to get in on a weekend a couple of weeks ago but it was super packed. The weeknights are better, easy to get a reservation and we were sat right away. Our server had been there since it opened and she knew literally everything about the menu and the fish. The specials were on point and the rolls were phenomenal. They fly their sushi in every other day and it is well worth the price. I would say it is a little pricey but you get what you pay for and the value is still there at Kabooki. I have been around the world to Sushi places in multiple countries and this is #1 on my list by a lot right now. Highly recommended.

I appreciate the freshness, subtlety and craft of the flavor combinations in the rolls. I love the food, my husband thinks it’s A little pricey. Cooking quite a bit myself, I may appreciate the skill of the chefs. I feel like you get what you pay for. There are a lot of descent places for sushi 🍣 but this one is, in my opinion, a cut above.

We came in on a 3/18 Monday night (I recommend if you don’t want the craziness the weekend service may offer for it is a small place). We were immediately greeted with a warm welcome from a nice Spanish female server and a gentleman whom I assume was the floor manager. Our server, liem, greeted us within a appropriate amount of time. He suggested some great items. Food was fantastic (highly recommend whatever nigiri is on their special list). Quality was superb so I send my accolades to the chef for pushing out the food in a timely manner. From one restaurant manager/server to another the server presence and teamwork server was available and present. I would definitely dine in again and do the omakase if I were in town again.
