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 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

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.

This place is my favorite Japanese Steakhouse (hibachi style) restaurant. The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. Great for the family or date night. I wish they had a greater sushi selection.

The food was amazing and there was such large portions. It was a tad pricey for hibachi but absolutely worth it. The food was amazing and it’s more upscale than your usual hibachi

Cue for one seat was complicated for an unknown reason

Delayed menus + drink

Chef of the table next to us was enjoying putting on a show

Our guy went through the motions like a milk wagon horse knew his route....same low level enthusiasm as the horse

Food for the money was good.... scallops the highlight of the night

We had reservations for 7:30. We did not sit down until 8:30. When the chef arrived, he realized the griddle had not been turned on. He turned it on and said he would be back in 5 minutes. Ten minutes later, he began to cook. He had a lot of conversation, buy at this point, we just wanted to eat. He seemed like a nice guy and under different circumstances, we probably would have been more engaged.

Server was mildly attentive.

Salad dressing was watery...should have asked for double soup.

Food was good, nice portions.

First time eating here...may be the last.

Condensation from air unit above our table dripped.

Dined at Kabuto for Mother’s Day.

The Good: Food was excellent and everyone enjoyed the chef and his culinary skills!!!

The Bad: Our waiter was awful. Brought soup without enough spoons. Brought drinks without enough straws. Spilled sauce from our pork dumplings appetizer all over the table, left and didn’t return to clean it up. Finally I had to swipe a rag from one of the carts to wipe up HIS mess. Waiter clearly didn’t want to be there that day. Service was so bad I got the feeling that it was intentional.
