We went for our daughter's birthday. We were seated at a Hibachi table with 4 other people. Our waitress (an older lady) was very nice & efficient. Our cook was great ! He was funny & efficient. The food was wonderful, and we all enjoyed being there. We were allowed to bring a birthday cake, although we decided to take... More

I went to Kabuto as an invitation for a surprise party. The 2 stars I have given and this is due to the very poor customer service our party of 21 received this evening. I tried to think of why I even gave 2 stars and the only thing I could think of was the food was ok. We arrived... More

I came here with my lady at my suggestion. She had not been here for some time. We were told a 5-10 minute wait, but it was much longer. We started with only four people, we two and another couple, but after some time another six arrived as a birthday party as we were beginning our soup. So there was... More

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 in the kimonos and authentic footwear. Their seating area has at least 10 hibachi grills.... More

We have been going to Kabuto on Broad St. for many years. It used to be a lot of fun and we used to really enjoy it and not mind paying the high prices. We have noticed however that the quality of the food, service, and show has declined. It is a shame as it is a great concept. I... More

Went to Kabuto for a birthday celebration. We had a great time. The service was excellent and the food was well prepared. We started with hot towels to cleanse our hands. This was followed by the broth soup which is tasty for broth, mushrooms, chicken and scallions. The salad was fresh. I love the ginger dressing. Our hibachi chef was... 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 show never gets old. The service is excellent and the food is fresh and deliciously... More

Just a quick note today. I gave this place a 5 because the presentation, flavor, freeness, and variety of sashimi on my boat was amazing. Not many places add tako or akagi in a sashimi dinner plate. I have added this place to one of my favs.

The only downside to eating at Kabuto is that your party is paired with other other parties. I enjoyed the food and the chefs show. The other party I could have done without, rude, obnoxious. But that is not going to detract from the food and from the facility. I am not a fan of this type of eating, but... More

We all enjoyed the food, service and the fun hibachi show--and Masa's great humor!! Food was great and comparably priced. The kids were thoroughly entertained and the staff was warm and friendly. This was not our first trip there but was well worth our drive. Our guests from out-of-state also had a wonderful time... We recommend this place to all... More
