Love coming here on my lunch break. The sushi specials are fantastic. They even have all day happy hour specials on Sundays which includes deals on rolls and drinks.

“Do't Go !!”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

We are regulars at several good sushi restaurants in Houston including Uchi and Kata Robata. Kubo's is just plain terrible. The fish is not fresh and probably all frozen. At 7pm on a Saturday night, they were only two other tables occupied. That says it all.....

“Good sushi option in Houston”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

A lot of Japanese business men go there. That give you an idea of the quality of the place. Not like Tokyo but close enough.... Friendly staff, reasonable price, and plenty of choice on the menu. Go for it!!

“Good sushi”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

Been here multiple times over the past five years with family and friends.
The service is friendly and good.
They have a bar, which I have not used.
Good sushi selection and always fresh!
Have some international friends that always ask me to bring them back here.
Prices are reasonable.

“Reliable and authentic”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

I have been to this restaurant more than 50 times over 5 years. The food is very authentic (the sushi chefs are from Kyoto and Tokyo), and the service is great. Weekdays, typically can walk in and get a table but weekends, should get a reservation. Will accommodate a big group (a big area in the front for a private event) and also has a small private room that seats approx 4-5. You'll find many people from Japan dining at the restaurant- always a good sign for a Japanese restaurant. It's located on the second floor of a busy shopping area, but it's worth the trip up.
