A tad bit overpriced but I don't care. I love the food so I always go back. The vegas roll, rainbow roll, sunshine roll are my faves. My friends who don't eat sushi often get the chicken terriyaki and rave about it.

Kabuki is a lovely restaurant with a nice outdoor seating area. Everything else about it is pretty disappointing. The food is beautifully presented but the taste is average. I was hoping for the best on this, my second visit, but it was worse than the first.

We ordered a sushi appetizer platter. The waitress delivered our soup before the appetizer platter, which we pointed out to her. Many minutes later, she returned with our entrees! We told her to just forget the appetizer platter - then she delivered it half-way through our meal! Unbelievable. No apology. No offer to comp it.

The best part of the meal was the green tea ice cream for dessert.

The people in my group loved the sushi and sashimi...I had a teriyaki salmon that was very good as were the tempura veggies. The food came in an odd sequence and we had to ask for items we had ordered....but once it all arrived, it was a good experience.

This is no Nobu by any means.

They try that's for sure. Walked in before the rush at 730p on a Saturday night.

The lobster dynamite was my appetizer and the best part of the meal.

We tried 3 different rolls. Average to be nice. But I agree with others that say this would be a great place to get starter sushi. Better/fresher than the grocery store variety.

The dessert was where I was hoping to be able to say this was better than average. Unfortunately, didn't happen that way.
