Visiting family in Houston, the 6 of us (plus my 7 month old) were very excited to try after hearing wonderful things. We arrived on time for 6:45 reservation on the patio, wasn't seated for 15 minutes while we saw our table set & ready. Hostess kindly sat us finally, given menus and water. We are leisurely diners but after... More

Food was very good. Excellent service, very helpful and noted that the soy sauce on the table is gluten-free which is helpful for us because I usually need to bring a bottle since my husband has celiac disease. Only problem for us was that is was too noisy and we couldn't hear each other, so not great for us for... More

I've been here about five times over the last seven months and it's consistently good. Very well run, excellent front of the house management. Very attentive wait staff. The decor is lovely with marvelous textures wrapping around the establishment. Each area feels special and although it's busy you don't get that loud over bearing pushing feeling you get from busy...

It's a fine Japanese restaurant, however the C/P value isn't high to me. May only go for special events.

We used to go to Kata Robata all the time when we lived in Houston. It's consistently on of the best sushi places in Houston, if you are looking for upscale, fancy and top quality. We ducked in for a quick plate...and we loved it. Happy trails!

Having recently visit Japan, was looking for good place with authentic food. Kata is both. Visited here for lunch. Had a Bento box with sahsimi. My colleague had noodle dish with chicken. The place was packed and had to wait even at 1 PM. Once seated, service was very good. Quality of food was excellent and up to Japanese standards.

Relatively nice atmosphere given that it's in a strip mall. High marks for creative menu, high marks for helpfulness of server. Just slightly better than average rolls. Great bar.

Have heard good things about Kata for a long time and was happy to try it for lunch for a friend's birthday. Liked the atmosphere and decor. First noticed the chair was dirty when we were seated which tells me they don't pay much attention to their cleaning process. Ugh! Next, the waitress seemed annoyed that we had questions about...

The sushi at Kata Robata has both taste and great eye appeal. Well cut slices, good rice, black slate tiles for plates, excellent miso and salads. Could eat here every day.

Have been going many times to Kata. Parking is always a big pain. They should have Valet. I have been there many times with my 8 year old daughter and last time we went they overcharged me because the waiter did bill for different food then ordered and when I asked for the GM to talk to, he came and...
