This is the second time that I have eaten here for a business dinner. Both times the server was VERY slow to get initial drink orders. Table very sticky not clean. Windows dirty. The food however is good and well presented. Nothing special about atmosphere. I feel that if that could step up the service to equal food I would raise my review level.

Their Classic Mixed Tempura (Vegetables and Shrimps) looked it was cooked the night before. The salad that came with my order is not fresh and and was soggy. The Brown Rice was not neatly served in its bowl container. Other Japanese Restaurants that I've dined served their Food more neatly and attractive. I can give them an excuse if they were busy but we were there at the start of their Saturday lunch and there were not the many Customers. I hope my Guests' experiences were not as bad as mine. They were just visiting from Asia.

Food and service were excellent. The Krab Wontons and Ahi Shashimi, which were on the daily special menu, were well presented, fresh and flavorful. I've found this restaurant to be consistently reliable in providing a pleasurable dining experience.

This outlet of the sushi chain is conveniently located in downtown Burbank, with easy parking nearby. The food is very good and fresh, and I will definitely eat there again. The prices are in line with other sushi restaurants.

Service is a little off when they are busy. However, Kabuki has an extensive, delicious menu and is one of the top LA spots for sushi!

Came here with my cousins and grandparents for my grandfather's 80th birthday. The staff was great and patient. Our server had great customer service and was very accommodating. We all had a great time and the bill wasn't bad either!

I was seated as soon as I walked in even though my entire party wasn't present. I love that because some places refused to seat you until your entire party has arrived.

Our server was Dae. He was super nice, knowledgeable and made great suggestions. He was extremely attentive and was clearly there to ensure we had a great experience.

Food was excellent. I got the korean short ribs and tempura. Comes with soup, salad and rice. A very delicious, filling meal.

I'd definitely come back here again. Shout out to Dae for being great at his job.

We thoroughly enjoyed Kabuki in Burbank. The food was wonderful and a great selection of sushi. We especially appreciated that they would make our sushi with brown rice, not too many places will do that. We were seated way in the back and felt like we were forgotten at times. They completely forgot about one of our rolls and the waitress asked if we still wanted it. That was the only negative experience we had. We would definitely go back again, the food was great!

Had a birthday there the other night and the service was poor. They keep apologizing however it never seemed to get better. It was a party of 5 and they crammed us at a table for 4. Then have the food came they they were almost done when the rest did. The food was good. But ruined a birthday!

Found this while in town on business. don't typically like places that have pictures of the food on the menu but this placed rocked. Food was exception, had a pork app that was delicious and tender and a bunch of roll, each better than the next. has the drink special, an awesome martini, $6.95 - would find this at $12 elsewhere.

The food was very good. They couldn't get my dad's martini right - but it must have been okay; dad still drank it. Server very nice and pleasant. Place a little too noisy - other than that; we had a great time.

It's ok food and high priced for what you get. The chefs special sashimi lunch as an enormous bowl of ice with very little fish. A scam. For $30
