Food was good. Service was poor felt rushed. Cooker was not the best he put food on the grill and left while food was unattended. Pretty pricey

When we arrived Kabuto Japanese Steak House did not show our reservation that was mad through Open Table. I showed them our confirmation and they took us after a 20 minute wait but it was worth it. The food was awesome and so was the service!!

We have been to many Hibachi restaurants and this was one of the best. It was our first time having Hibachi bananas, which were yummy. The chef was great and the food was yummy.

Service had gotten poor every time we go. They take so long to take drink order/ bring drinks. Then hand you a togo box and check before you can even order another drink or finish eating. You feel rushed for a $100+ dinner with family.

Our fried rice smell and taste like raw fish and was very mushy. Not at all like it should be. Salad dressing were only to choices neither which we liked. Price was a lot more than others which I wouldn't mind if food was great. This was our first experience there and our last. Sorry.

I thought my server was ok. She was nice, but she did not smile once and was very monotone. The food was ok. The rice was kind of bland. The chef was really nice, energetic, entertaining, helpful, and really made sure we enjoyed the show. It was really loud, but that is expected with cooking tables so it did not really bother me.

I used to love Kabuto but when I went for my sons birthday recently it was terrible. They've raised the prices by $8-10 an entree, my chicken was so chewy that I couldn't eat most of it. The waiter was a bit clumsy (that is forgivable since I'm a waitress but he didn't acknowledge it and did not clean up spills he made). Our chef seemed inexperienced and was messy. I'll stick to Arigato from now on.

We ate the Ribeye and shrimp. The shrimp was great, the Ribeye was a little tough and a few bites had gristle. The remainder of the food was great. The chef was very effecient and funny. He wasn't as entertaining as some we've seen before but he did a great job on the food. The seating was a little crowded it could use more space.

Everything was great but when the waiter set fire to the happy face— I received a burned face! I had to put aloe Vera on it the next day. It looked like a severe sunburn. That’s never happened before. It may have been due to the face cream I put on prior to going. I think it acted like an accelerant. It was not the waiters fault and I wasn’t any closer to the fire than anyone else. Just a freak occurrence. From now on I guess I need to wear sunscreen! Lol

The service was great, but the only problem I had with the service is that I requested a dessert for my son in the online reservation which was his birthday!

The service was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. If you like Hibachi then you don't mind communal eating. If you don't like communal eating wait for a big event with family and friends. It was a setting for 12. The presentation was excellent. The quality of the meat is not prime or fresh water but is tasteful when done. Those aren't really complaints just preferences. If I had one complaint it was that our cook deep cleaned the grill while we were eating. However, when he was done it looked better than when he started. In the end it was better than the other overated Hibachi restaurant everyone in Greensboro raves about and much cleaner.

The table wasn’t ready, so we sat in the bar and waited for 30 minutes before we gave up and just ordered in the bar. The wait staff was overwhelmed. We can’t blame them because they were just short staffed. The food was good, nothing to write home about, but tasty.

No hibachi “show”. Literally just put the food on the grille and cooked. We saw the server once and never saw her again.

This place is not the best by any means. The food is way too over priced for the quality, and even though I can assume that they include the cooking "show" in the price, it still adds up to be more than I'm willing to pay for only decent food. Not to mention the service was subpar, and left a lot to be desired

The soup and salad was not very good. The soup was extremely salty and the salad dressing was watery. The main course was fair. The staff was ok but seemed very rushed.

There was a disabled fly that landed in my daughter's plate of food. She had not yet began to eat (chef just finished preparing the meal). The chef called the manager over (fly still moving in the food). Manager took the fork and smushed the fly in the plate of food, turning everyone's stomach! Seeing that ruined the entire experience. My daughter was offered food from the back, but at that point she was turned off and declined it. Not to mention, we were there celebrating her graduation. Very disturbing and disappointing experience for everyone. Don't think we will return.
