They do have a gluten-free menu, but barely anything is on it. My husband and mom liked their meals okay. Husband got sushi. I ordered chicken and brown rice. The chicken was not edible. I ate two bites. The rice was clumpy (not sticky- clumpy) when the server took away my barely-touched meal, she didn’t even ask if everything was okay... won’t be going here again.

The waiter told us he would be right there after 5 min. 15 min later he told us that he had to go do something but would take our drink order. He never came back and we left. The restaurant was pretty empty but they sat us in the back. Horrible experience. Will never come back.

He was so friendly, attentive, helpful, and flawless. We had a great time and really enjoyed the food, beer, cold & warm sake, and the ambiance. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the bathroom being weirdly, eerily underground (downstairs). It feels like it's about to turn into an "IT" (Stephen King) scene. I was looking for a red balloon. Anyway, also very reasonable pricing. Thank you.

Ordered 3 Philly Rolls w/ Masago and Avocado. Got neither. Waited 10 minutes for Soy Sauce. I would rather eat at Foothill, skip the "special" and get what I ordered. Moving forward, that will be a better option for me. Too bad its not offered late at all Kabuki's. Oh well

We've loved it. But the sushis (rolls) was fair.

There were employees inside but chairs turned upside down. As we looked for parking I called to ask them what time they closed. They told me that they closed early due to being short staffed. They closed at 9pm. We had reservations at 9:30pm. They typically close at 10:30pm, they said. No one contacted me to notify me of this -- unacceptable. We do not live in the area and were celebrating a special occasion. Strange that they closed early and stranger that they didn't contact me (and anyone else who might have had reservations) to let us know.

Appropriately radiant heaters facing downward--just enough to provide heat without burning your hair. I had the soy ramen w grilled pork and boiled egg. Flavor was very good. I would probably not use the black pepper since it tends to settle at the bottom of the Bowl after slurping down the noodles. The pork was a bit too lean for my tastes--for ramen, I personally prefer the less healthy, more fatty pork belly, but that's just a personal thing. The service is actually very noteworthy. Extremely attentive hostess, waitress. Even though we were the only people outside, we never felt neglected. Okay, they were extremely courteous--a real plus!

If this location was my first experience with Kabuki Restaurants, I probably wouldn't bother trying other locations. I had ordered the Garlic Beef Yaki. The sliced garlic is usually cut thin and is cooked just enough to be brown and crispy but, not burnt. I asked for the beef to be cooked medium rare but, I was served medium well cooked meat and it was just thrown on the plate like a pile of beef. The presentation was very unappetizing. The Miso Marinated Cod was a watery marinade which made the fish taste bland. The only thing good about this restaurant are the servers, who were very pleasant, efficient and apologizing. The Hastings Ranch in East Pasadena location is how all Kabuki Japanese Restaurants should be.

It was a tuesday and parking was easy, behind the building. Hosts were warm, greeting you, getting in. We even had our choice of seating. Ambience was wonderful, cozy, nice and quiet, modern interior. Food selection was great with colored pictured menu, helpful. Waiter was knowledgeable as well as helpful, food was wonderful, very presentable, tasty modest portions, as shown on the menu, excellent. Thumbs up !!! I'll bring back my family again, soon.

A occasional smile would have been nice and her tip would have been much nicer. Enjoyed the food and my company.

The setting is great right in Old Town. But honestly they need to get their service in line. The waitress served us two sake drinks with our appetizers and then asked for my I.D. when I ordered a Long Island Iced T?! Since I had left it in the car, she wouldn't serve me the second drink. Since we apparently had more than one server, I asked the other server that came to the table and he got it. They need to structure their staff better (or in the first place). And from what I've seen online this isn't the first time a service issue has popped up for this establishment...honestly would never come back because of that.

The host told me that it only worked for the other Kabuki locations. There was no wait, so it was not a problem, but why have the option of making reservations online if they don't go through. Also, the pasadena location did not take the coupons from Kabuki....oh well.

Reservation confirmation # 481764 Party of (3) for 1:30pm. I have a paid receipt. Otherwise, the food is always very good, and the service is OK.

The service which in my books would have compensated for the sub-par food, was terrible for a non-busy weekday. We could not flag a waiter to provide us the basic things. Perhaps under-staffed from the service standpoint for that day 7/27/11, I would tend not to venture to this particular Kabuki, again - at least not for any celebration dinner.

Great soba noodles. My only complaint is that service could be faster. After the food is delivered, you are abandonned and it's hard to get the bill. That's strange, because you would think they would want to turn the table.
