“Good sushi for a chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

The sushi here is on the better side of good. They have upgraded their menu and have muchore to offer than a few years ago. We did enjoy it, but my son felt a #3 coming along and we quickly made an exit.

“Excellent sushi, wide variety of beverages, and good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

I was surprised by the quality of the sushi and the wide choice of beverages t drink with it. We tried the Sapporo beer, Mio sparkling sake, and the sake sangria (maybe that's why I enjoyed the meal so much). We prefer something with a bit of sweetness with sushi and found the sake sangria to have a light touch of fruity sweetness to offset the heat o the wasabi and ginger. Service was good and we enjoyed sitting outside to enjoy the warm Phoenix evening. Very nice experience

“A favorite place of mine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

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.

“Average food, below average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

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.
