Visited on Saturday night at 6:30....where's the crowd? Actually the place was only half filled to capacity. I find the prices to be somewhat expensive considering the quantities given, I would suggest the owners take a trip to Miyabi's of Murrells Inlet, SC, just outside of Myrtle Beach. While there be sure to check out the Miyabi dinner of 5... More

We had a large family group in for the Holidays, and thought we'd try Kabuki out for Christmas Eve. They took reservations, and seated us promptly on time. The service was efficient and polite. The food quality was very good. We had appetizers of tempura seafood and sushi, which were good. The soup and salad were fine, and of course,... More

The Kabuki is a very interactive restaurant. The chef prepares the meal right in front of you on the hibachi. Chop! Chop! If that is not your cup of tea, there is also a Sushi area and a bar, that is much quieter. Sometimes, my husband and I just go for for drinks and sit at the bar. The ceiling... More

The food at this restaurant is always consistent we had a fabulous time laughing with the chef. The waitress was nice but did not speak much English so maybe that was why she seemed quiet. We noticed they added egg to the rice which was a new thing but we simply asked for no egg and they cooked it that... More

Ambience is okay, the foods was pretty good, the cost is a little high ($8.00 for a glass of grocery store wine?), but the waitress was curt almost to the point of being rude. Too many good restaurants in this area to put up with that. It's doubtful that we'll be back.

Take the scrambled egg out of the rice! You had the best rice in Roanoke now it tastes like scrambled eggs and rice! New owners but we dont need a new menu, it was perfect the way it was! Plus I was charged for extra rice when I didnt even order vegetables or a salad!

We visit this restaurant about 2-3 times a year. Always for my son's birthday because it's his favorite. We always experience great service and the food is great. This year the only disappointment was the servers (not the cook). We were seated and were quickly brought our drinks, soup then salad but the servers never cleared the table of those... More
