Kabooki Sushi Ratings and Reviews
ALWAYS EXCEPTIONAL IN EVERY WAY. Best Sushi in town hands down. Had the ramen this time and the broth was so flavorful and they do not skimp on the meat. Tried a new roll that had mixed greens instead of rice and was wrapped with rice paper instead of seaweed. Surpisingly refreshing and a healthy alternative! I was not missing the rice! Definitely try the homemade ice cream—the orange ginger was divine. Also, our server was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accomodating. So grateful! Thank you Kabooki Sushi for never disappointing!
Kabooki is a great restaurant but I think they have a tendency to overbook reservations. We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation and weren’t seated until 45 minutes after our reservation. While our server was very gracious and very apologetic, and we were comped a hot sake, it was still a bummer to wait as long as we did.
We were celebrating my husband's birthday and were excited to try Kabuki Sushi for the first time having seen adds on social media.
All was okay with the seaweed salad we both ordered, the Saki and beer until our Sushi order came out, my husband's was mediocre in appearance and taste. My rolls were unappetizing in appearance so I refused to eat them but the waitress suggested I at lease try a piece of each roll, so I went along doing so only to discover I was right, the appearance fitted the taste. So I refused to have the remainder of my dinner. My rolls were $33. for two but looked and tasted displeasing. It was disappointing and I felt bad to refuse eating them as it put a damper on his birthday treat a gift from our daughter. My husband was hungry and chose to eat his but we both felt disappointed.
Made a reservation at Kabooki and when we arrived not only was a table not reserved for us we waited for 30 minutes before we finally left. Made a reservation at another well reviewed restaurant while we were waiting and when we arrived our table was waiting for us, what a concept.
Kabooki Sushi is undeniably the best Sushi in O-Town. The ambiance is perfect, the music is at just the right level for conversation. the restaurant itself has a really sexy feeling.
Every single server here is top notch, we have eaten here many, many times and have encountered nothing but excellent service. I love the knowledge that the servers have about every item on the menu including the specialty cocktails. This last visit was extra special since we waited for seats at the Sushi Bar, SO WORTH IT! The Sushi Chefs are engaging and so much fun to watch. The plating was beautiful and Chef Alonso was awesome! Special Thank You to Darren for taking such good care of us.
The sushi rolls we had were very small and almost flavorless. We had the hokkaido roll, the bookibooki roll, and the LV roll and all 3 sucked. They had no flavor except whatever was on top of the roll and that wasn't good. The wine list is almost worthless but the service was excellent. Complete waste of our time and money. At first we thought maybe this is good sushi for Orlando but we had sushi at Tokyo Dining in Epcot that was excellent and sushi at the California Grill at the Contemporary Hotel that was excellent.
Living in Nashville, the city is very short on an decent sushi options. Got a chance to head to Orlando and my first stop was kabooki! Best sushi in Orlando by far. Te tuna, salmon, tempura, wagyu all amazing. The service was excellent , the young lady was knowledgeable and bubbly. Can’t wait to come back every time I’m in Orlando.
This is one of the best sushi restaurants in Orlando. The space is not great, they need more space because they are always full and noisy - also, take a sweater. Reservations recommended. I have been there at least thirty times and had only one bad experience. The food is fresh, innovative, beautifully presented and delicious. A bit quirky, not just a bunch of rolls, although they do have many rolls. They always have specials, and there is always something outstanding there as well.
Looking for a good sushi restaurant in Orlando, we stumbled across this GEM. Our server could not have been nicer and guided us through the entire menu with recommendations. We took her up on many of the recommendations and she was SPOT ON. The tuna appetizer was AMAZING and the rolls were delicious. Top it off with a C-4 dessert and it was the perfect meal for a date night birthday dinner!
The service was friendly and professional. The food a work of art and an awesome delight to consume.
Perfectly balanced ingredients was the highlight of the rolls.
The Sunday Ramen Pork Belly Soup was amazing with incredible flavor.
The food is consistently outstanding.
My girlfriend and I love sushi, so the raves for Kabooki got us intrigued. A friend, however, warned us that she wasn't impressed. We should have listened. I really don't understand the effusion of praise for this place. The sushi we had was quite average. We had reservations so we only waited a short while to get seated. The crowd was impressively diverse, ranging from tank-topped dudebros to a family of four to tatted hipsters. That range usually bodes well, since good food attracts all. We started with yucca fritters. The tuna topping was good, but the yucca wasn't exactly what I'd call a fritter. It was bland and mushy. The dish really would have benefited from a bit of crunch. For sushi, we had the coconut lobster roll, and the Hokkaido roll. The Hokkaido roll was good. Fresh flavors, and the scallop on top was very nice. The coconut lobster roll was bland and boring, completely dominated by rice and tempura flavor. No presence of either lobster or coconut. We opted out of dessert since we really wanted to leave. Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes, but regardless, I know of at least three much better places off the top of my head that aren't as loud and chaotic.
Kabooki Sushi has very good food. The service was good. The ambience is OK - set in an ugly strip plaza, but the inside is pretty nice. My biggest complaint that it is quite expensive and I feel that we received little food for what I paid. As soon as I got home, I made a sandwich.
I recommend the restaurant mostly on quality of the food, just be prepared to pay a pretty penny to fill up.
Went to Kabooki for best friends birthday, got the Omakase for both of us with alcohol pairing and it completely exceeded expectations. Everything was so flavorful and fresh that it has nearly ruined normal sushi for me. We also had 3 other friends who went with the regular menu and we ended up buying servings for them it was so good! Alcohol pairing was fabulous and made the whole night. Can’t wait for next visit, though the amount of alcohol was surprisingly appropriate, will probably get an Uber or something so we can truly enjoy it!
Took our daugther and her boyfriend her for a birthday dinner. We were a little worried when we saw the place from outside, but inside, it was tasteful and very comfortable. The menu was easy to understand and well developed. There was also a very nice daily plates menu that added some interest to the standard choices. We had 3 apps, 4 rolls and desert. The apps were tasty and inventive. The rolls were standard fare but well prepared. Desert was fine, especially the creme brulee, but they were out of the two most interesting sounding deserts which was a little let down. Service is professional, pacing was proper, and noise level lively but not overwhelming.
Everything about this restaurant gets 5 stars: food, service, atmosphere. I went with 4 people at 8pm on a Tuesday. It happened to be during Magical Dining week so we got a three course set menu for $35 and each tried bites of one another's dishes. Some stand outs were the pork hot pot and salmon sambal but everything was absolutely delicious.
We have eaten here before with a better experience. We had to rate it lower this time because they where out of many menus items, which where some of the main reasons we choose this place. Other wise great food and atmosphere and we will definitely be back!
