We have had wonderful service and delicious food every time we have eaten there. This business supports Military in May. I just wish they still had the scallops

Tried Kabuto for the first time for lunch take out and it was great. Reasonable prices and food quality was good. Will definitely return.

There is a limited menu and very little atmosphere; however, the food is fairly good Asian food. Needs some decor and real wait staff to handle the crowds. Not the place to take Family or friends for dining in.

Though there is a limited menu and very little atmosphere, the food is remarkably good Asian food. All of the menu items offer great flavor and moderate quantities. Needs some decor and real wait staff to match the quality of good food.

This restaurant has good food but they should off BOTH white rice and fried rice for a variety of reasons. People have food allergies, and people having healthier options. We would visit much more they offered this regularly.

This restaurant is located where Forest Sub & Deli used to be. They've redecorated the interior so it's very spacious and inviting. Food is great! We've had hibachi steak, shrimp & chicken meals and have not been disappointed.
