I've been to quite a few Japanese steakhouses, but Kabuto has topped them all. The past Japanese steakhouses I've been to consisted of waiters or waitresses dressed in normal attire -- black pants and white shirt. However, at Kabuto, all waiting staff members are dressed...More

I've visited this particular restaurant off and on for the past 30 years and confess it is great and has never wavered. It is pricey, but where else can one eat soup, salad, fried rice, veggies and a main course with an interactive show. The...More
