    I’ve been here a few times and really enjoyed it, but last night was fantastic!

    Masa was the chef at our table and he was great! The food he made was amazing and he was such a great entertainer.

    The service was great! The food was lacking. Also, their menu says to ask about their sushi menu but then you’re told they no longer have sushi chefs, therefore no more sushi

    If you have a shellfish allergy, they’re more than willing to prepare your food separately from your table to minimize risk

    My family and I have been going to Kabutos since our son was born and he is 28 yrs old. We go every year on our birthday. They use to sing happy bday and we would order the smoking icecream cake but all of that stopped. The food does not taste good at all! The prices have gone up but service sucks. They use to have zucchini and squash and onion and separate mushrooms and Brussels sprouts but now it hard broccoli and carrots. Nothing is the same and this place have really gone down. Whenever we went to Kabutos it was always packed and the other day it was only 3 other groups of people. I see why now. We will never come back to Kabutos again.

    We celebrated my son’s 49th birthday! We had a wonderful time with a family of 7 joining us. The chef was very friendly and told stories relating to our discussions. As he cooked he told jokes and involved the 5 children (ranging from 11 to 2). The kids laughed and joked with him. He was funny and very skilled with his cooking utensils. The food tasted wonderful.

    To whom is reading my review
    Please stay the F away from this restaurant
    This restaurant serves pure, expensive garbage food.
    I ordered the Samurai (35 dollars), expecting to be great food.
    I ordered a 5 dollars drink.
    My friend ordered the same drink with rum (10 dollars).
    He couldn’t taste any rum at all.
    They force an 18% tip upon everyone at the door.
    Total price out the door for two expensive garbage meals 100+ dollars altogether.

    Came for lunch. Food was ok. Hibachi chef was terrific. Service was terrible. Waitress didn’t deserve a tip. They were slow and didn’t want to serve guest. Better to go to Kanpai or another hibachi restaurant in the area.

    Last time I went which was three months ago, it stinks in there, it smelled like spoiled mop water in the building along with the sour fish tank smell. It made it hard to want to eat there, made the food taste unpleasant, I went with a few friends. Bad smells makes me angry and uncomfortable.

    The food was average hibachi tasting. The wait staff was very rude and did NOT communicate with the cooks; so if you are allergic to something, don’t go there. The cook will not know until he’s already mixed the food together on the flat grill. The best experience for me at this Kabuto’s was the chef we had at our table. He was a good cook and very entertaining. I wish I knew his name. He’s a more solid Asian man. He actually kept our experience from being the worst ever. I will probably not revisit this location again.

    Came for lunch on a Wednesday, and they seemed super understaffed. The server was rude and not so friendly. The chef was cool. But my biggest problem was the lack of ventilation from the cooking on the tables. The smog was so heavy that I legit coughed because I could hardly breathe. I’ve been to a few of these types of restaurants and I’ve never experienced this before. Food was basic. I’ve had better.

    Only 3 stars , due to the fact , a lot of steps were missed and the cook said , you’re only getting the lunch special. All the extra stuff happens only at dinner . 😳😬… food was not seasoned well .. however we did arrive close to the time ,they were about to close and reopen hours later for dinner .. Food still needed more flavor . …

Then I go to check in and the person says, we dont have staff and we cant find your reservation! I showed him the time I called on my phone bit doesn’t matter. I was a true fan of this place bit PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR TIME!!!

    Have been going to this place for years and have always loved the food. It’s very consistent and the express is generally quiet fast. Overall it’s a decent value for money. That said, this place has epicly bad customer service. Just recently I came in when the google listed their hours for lunch until 3. I got there at 2:02 and waited for anyone to greet me. After several minutes some rude waitress says something like “YOU ARE LATE ITS 2:04 NO ONE HERE TO COOK” all the while I steadily see other people eating. It made me laugh because clearly they didn’t care about losing the money of four people and the place is empty the vast majority of the time I visit so I know for a fact they need the business. Other times I’ve come in during lunch hours and they will just tell me oh we have a big group we have no one to help you or other goofy reasons. It’s funny because they know who I am, me and my wife have been going there for 10 years or maybe more? And my wife and her family have been going for idk 20 plus years? It’s sad because my mother in law used to love this place but one time due to their ultra rude customer service and accusing her of not paying she hasn’t gone back in 15 years or so. It’s amusing how much money this place has lost due to extremely poor customer service. I’ve met the owner and her son previously. Seem like super people. I hope they read this and think about how to better improve customer service. Again the food is excellent and is a good value. The sauces including the yum yum and salad dressing are excellent. I’d gladly update this review if service improves at all.

    The cooked food was great and the cook was nice. Disappointed that there’s currently no sushi and they were out of something for a drink I wanted, appears they’d been out of that for a while. The waitress was also unfamiliar with a drink on the menu (had a Wasabi rim) so asking to modify it was a mini conversation. The soup was extremely salty and the salad dressing had a fishy taste to it. Overall experience was ok, your average hibachi place.

    Booked a reservation in advanced for a birthday celebration. When we arrived, they had no record of it and told us we could be seated an hour after the original time we requested over the phone. When we asked to speak to management, the manager was no where to be found. We waited for 20 minutes before we were even offered an apology for the inconvenience. NEVER EAT HERE. Customer service is terrible. Completely unprofessional establishment.

    Chicken hibachi good serving size. Had enough for leftover snack. Salad sauce was too salty so could not eat salad. Over $23 for meal, plus tax, mandatory 18% tip no matter if eat solo or with small or large group, and drink so not place all can go to often. Experience depends on chef and one had today did good with food but no energy for the experience. Server was very attentive. Good for special meals, otherwise make it at home.

    Our chef complained the first half of the “experience” about the servers don’t know how to take orders quickly enough and chefs get yelled at for being ten minutes late. Speaking of our experience, of which there was none. No fire, no onion tower, or train, or tossing the chicken into our mouths, nothing. He cooked for maybe 10-15 minutes and then left. Dressing for the salad was super bitter, yum yum sauce was watery. The filet had almost no seasoning.

    Very not typical of most hibachi experiences

    Really disappointing experience. We had a reservation for 7:45 pm. After not being seated for 20 minutes we then waited at the table for a server for another 20. No drinks, not even water, in an overly warm and smoky room. Our chef did not arrive at the table to begin cooking until 9:15pm. The shrimp appetizer was served at the end of the meal, and several people in our party initially did not get what they ordered. I have eaten here many times but this was the first time since the pandemic. I will not be back anytime soon.

    the cook very considered a lady in our group is allergic to seafood, he cook her food first, after that he cook the rest of us food. The flavor is delicious. Our waitress was no the most pleasant person and look upset when we ask for something extra. I understand when they add the 18% to the bill, but I don’t appreciate specially when the waitress has bad attitude. The atmosphere is nice. Overall I enjoy my meal and I try to oversee the waitress and enjoy my self.

    We had a wonderful experience here. We have visited this restaurant many times in the past and I would always be in the 160 price range, however this time the bill was 200+ and we ordered nothing out of the ordinary. I’m assuming it’s just “inflation” because the amount of food and what was on the menu. I get it Hibachi has always been a little on the pricey side but this is WOW.

    If I could rate this restaurant lower, I would. I’m not one to leave reviews but I had such an awful experience and never got any sort of closure or assistance. Went with my boyfriend & we only had ordered one entree each & I was charged for the entire party behind me & the server gave me an attitude when I asked how it was going to be taken care of. I was supposedly “refunded” that day, but it was never shown on my bank statement. I called the manager 5 different times to speak to the owner, as for some reason I wasn’t getting my money back, and the owner was always out when I called. Took 2 weeks & the owner was very nice but not apologetic at all. Said he refunded me & still, nothing. Had to file a fraud claim through my bank so I could get the money back from the accidental charge. Overall, just not a great experience from the management side. The food is good, but that’s the only positive thing I have to say.

    Our family went to Kabuto last night for Christmas dinner. They are able to seat 8 people per table so we sat across two tables as we had a large group. As is normal, children like to sit with the other children in their group so my 9 y/o sat with an 8 y/o cousin at the neighboring table. I made it clear upfront when we advised how checks would be split that my child was sitting at the neighboring table.

    The server took a while to get to us which was fine because the tables weren’t all filled up but they did have about 5 other large groups to tend to, and we all know staffing is difficult these days especially on a holiday. However, drinks took forever to come once ordered, some were brought while others never were, refills were rare, and the soup had steam but was lukewarm and lacking flavor when you actually drank it.

    Our chef was amazing but the one at the table with the rest of our family was not entertaining or personable whatsoever.

    We got through dinner and found out that the waitress messed up checks so several of us were delayed in leaving because we had to try to get things corrected, and this is where things went majorly south.

    We kept questioning a shrimp app that was on one of the tabs and finally the waitress clarified that it was ordered by my 9 y/o child who was sitting with a cousin at the neighboring table. I confirmed with my child and was clearly okay with paying but politely offered feedback to the waitress that in the future she may want to consider confirming with parents before putting additional orders through; I have been a server myself and would certainly have double checked with the parents as the app was in addition to the meal that already came with shrimp.

    The waitress (Manuela) took offense and responded with “Many children are independent.”

    I raise my child to be independent but what a 9 y/o is not independent enough to do is pay for a hibachi steak meal plus a shrimp app, especially when the hibachi meal comes with shrimp already.

    The waitress began arguing with me over whether or not she should confirm such a thing with a parent, yet another staff member who was helping her correct the tabs politely told our waitress “This is why we train staff to double check orders with the parents.”

    The waitress walked away and later returned, as I was waiting for my change from her colleague, and the waitress decided to make smug faces at me like a child. Absolutely immature and disgusting behavior by this employee.

    I have never in my life had a service industry employee behave like that towards me to the point where I got as upset as I did.

    The one star is being left for the chef and the other staff member who did her best to mediate a situation created by her unprofessional and rude colleague, but no other part of this restaurant experience deserves a single star.

    Food Excellent, Server good, would have given a greater compliment to the server, the reason I didn’t give more, is that the server bought you, to go boxes before you as the customer could ask for them.. we felt extremely rushed out! So we couldn’t fully enjoy the food or ambience or each other for that much, our dining experience felt like a drive thru.

    I have never been to a hibachi grill that has no fans over the grill. The whole place was full of smoke. Pretty much everything is run down and old. The floors were very sticky.
    The cheff was very rude and didn’t really care about taking care of us.

    The chef was nice, but did not make any effort to separate foods for vegetarians. When asked if they had any vegetarian options, they said they did, but the waiter couldn’t be bothered to tell me what they were. One person in our party never got their protein, so we ended up eith one missing main. I ended up only being able to eat vegetable tempura and miso.
    The drinks were also not great. One of my drinks had a lychee with a big toothpick. When I pulled it out, it left long splinters in the lychee.

    The food was great, but the environment was not.
    There aren’t fire hoods, so the flames sometimes touch the ceiling. Every station has marks above them where flames touch and it honestly made me very nervous. The steam/smoke just rolls along the ceiling, it’s just not cool. But the food was very good.

    We got a last-minute New Year’s Eve reservation for 4 o’clock.

    There was a comfortable ambiance. Service was efficient without rushing us. Our Chef was a bit of a prankster, giving us a good show.

    We eat at Hibachi restaurants fairly often. Kabuto’s shrimp, vegetables, salad and soup were excellent. Their fried rice and filet were not as good as we’ve had elsewhere.

    We’d definitely go back. It was a nice dinner to lead into the New Year.

    Update 9/16/2022: it was Mimi’s birthday and she wanted to come here! We got a great meal, great service, and a great show. Our server, Manuela, went above and beyond, befriending our 7 year old.

    One of our best dining experiences in memory!

    Have been taking family here for 20 years on special occasions. Was back in town visiting children and grandson. Went for final night of my visit. Very disappointed. Chef did not put on a show other than flame when he first came out. All seafood and steak were overcooked. Saw other tables enjoying their show with dinner. For the price, this was very disappointing.

    Went in and tried to place the order, a man told me that they were closed, I pointed out that the website says order lunch till 3 pm. He said it wasn’t their site, I pulled the address from the website and he just said they were closed and the website wasn’t theirs.

    Worst customer service. If they were closed, why not tell me that over the phone, or tell me that they would be closing soon?

    When I arrived I thought this establishment was out of business due to the upkeep of the parking lot. Once you get past the weeds and branches, you’re greeted by “oh this is cute, I see what you’re going for.” The waiting area was beautifully decorated. The Koi were doing their thing and the kids loved them. I even enjoyed the scene on the ceiling. The sushi bar wasn’t available when I was there (Sunday 1pm). It’s your typical hibachi spot. The show was for the kids and it was ok. Great food. Great customer service. Will I return? Eh. I’m good.

    All of our food was hot, tasty and cooked perfectly! The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because it was kind of a long wait at the table for the chef to come and start cooking especially since we had a reservation. Good thing we had the soup and salad served to hold us until the chef showed up. Other than the long wait i would highly recommend for a fun family dinner.

    Kabutos is not what it used to be…i dont think its even in the same location it used to be. I dont understand the wait, if we still wait for someone to come take our orders. The paper menu says ask about the sushi menu..there isnt one. The drink menu didnt have no alcohol in it. They messed up my daughters order until i corrected them..no Tricks. Just sad.

    Went out for my daughter’s planned birthday. Arrived with our party and went and checked in, no reservation even though the hostess didn’t check anything. I asked my daughter what name she used and we checked that. They still didn’t look. She made reservations a month in advance for a nice size party. My husband spoke with the host and I couldn’t hear what was being said, but apparently we got a reservation. We were seated after 20-30 minutes. Our party was separated into 2 separate tables. The 1st table was being served drinks, salad and soup and we didn’t even get asked for our drink orders. The other tables chef was incredible! He did all the tricks and kept everyone’s attention even the table that hadn’t been served. By the time we got a chef the first table was starting to eat. My daughter was upset about the food. The rice was crunchy and the shrimp were chewy. The host, and chef for our table was very disrespectful and we asked for the bill. The basically took the plates away and we were told to leave. Never again!

    The main reason anyone goes for habachi is the show and interaction with the chef. Our chef was not in a good mood and just went through the motions of cooking the food. We did witness another chef interacting amazingly with their customers so they’re not all bad. Plus we had a nice waitress and bus boy. The lady bartending was slow, had a poor attitude, and made poor quality drinks. Overall, the food is good, the decor is really interesting and pretty, and the koi pond is a fun touch (especially for young kids). It’s hit or miss with the experience you have with your chef.

    This is my favorite restaurant, this place is awesome! Everything on the menu is delicious, the steak, shrimp, salmon, chicken etc. You will not go home hungry especially with the fried rice and vegetables they give with every meal. It’s a little pricey but we’ll worth the experience of having food cooked right in front of you. And of course the fires they make on the grill make the experience well worth it! If you haven’t been here you owe it to treat yourself to this restaurant! I will be going back very soon!!

    Took one taste of the soup and put it aside (Was lukewarm), Tasted the salad and it was too salty so I put it aside. Chef was okay I guess, seemed like he didn’t wanna be there lol 😂…The fried rice was decent, greens were over-cooked, some of my chicken was not fully cooked all the way, cut it open and saw it was a bit raw and bouncy…Overall it’s a 2/5 experience…Could’ve been better especially for the price, I’ve had way better hibachi in the mall 😂😂

    When we got there right at 3 we were greeted by the manager informing us we normally need a reservation but just this one time they will let us eat there. We sit down and our drinks get ordered. When the waitress comes back I let her know we are ready to order, she informs is we have to wait until the whole grill is sat until we can order. 30 minutes later a second family sits next to us and we are finally able to order our food. On the plus side the food was great and the chef was awesome.

    To sum it up the only good thing about this place is it’s food, but hibachi is hibachi. I’d recommend any other place instead of this one.

    I only gave a 1 star so I could comment. My fiancé and I never get a chance to do much so the day after Valentine’s Day we went around 8:25pm it was at least 10 cars outside. They told us they weren’t serving anyone else. Three more people walked in as we walked out she told them the same but I never saw them walk out. So I go back in to see if she sat them and sure enough she was trying to find space for them. All she could say to me was they wanted to see if they could squeeze in because they drive far away. As if we lived right around the corner. I will never step foot in that establishment again. We were so looking forward to spend a little time together. That was completely ruined. My opinion go to kabuki‘s in Chest Va way better service. No star’s 👎🏾

    I don’t think I’ve ever walked into an establishment and felt so disrespected in my life! The man at the door wouldn’t even allow myself or my husband to speak! Needless to say I will never be going back. Also, the place looks like the slums of hibachi 💁🏻‍♀️ To each their own- but if your checking reviews, I recommend you go to another hibachi restaurant 😊

  137. Yvonne Marbury 2021/12

    I couldn’t give 5 stars only because the service was lacking alot. I dont know if they are shirt staffed or what but they were slow and forgetful.
    We had a party of 8, they had very strict rules about not seating you until your entire party has arrived. They sat us down with 2 strangers, then got us back up since we were waiting in one person.
    We had to wait for a bit then once we were finally seated, it took forever to get our drink orders in, then another ling wait to give our orders. It was annoying cause the place wasn’t full, they just didnt have enough staff.
    When the chef finally came out, he dud the usual show cooking and entertaining us. Meanwhile, I git my drink, white sangria. I expected a glass of sangria with big chunks of fruit, but i got shredded kiwi at the bottom instead. Not sure why. It ruined the taste of the sangria for me.
    The entrees were good, its always fun watching him make everything. I had hibachi shrimp & mushrooms. It was delicious.

    It saved the night even though service wasnt great.

    It has been a while since we have been to Kabuto. Service was a bit lack luster. After putting our order in we did receive our soup and salad. It took a long while to get a chef to prepare our meal. I ordered Filet and shrimp. My shrimp was so over cooked and dry. I told the chef and he did not care. I was disappointed, because I usually love shrimp. I did not eat it. My friend ordered the same as I. Our steak was cooked rare as requested. My husband ordered Steak and he was happy. It took a long while to get our bill. Maybe with Covid service was off. Because my shrimp was way over cooked and the chef did not care I was disappointed.

  142. Anthony Couillard 2021/11

    I remember when this was like the only hibachi place in town and it was always packed! Has been quite a while since I’ve been here, but the kids and I were out tonight and they wanted some Japanese Hibachi. I think this place burned down years ago, but it looks really nice inside. Still a lot of space and tables. They have a hibachi side and then they also just have a sushi bar. My kids loved the display when you enter of all the things Japanese related and the Samurai Armor. They have a large Koi tank in the entry as well. They still require masks, even with the mandate gone and will check your temperature. Staff was very friendly and attentive. We had a fun chef, he joked with us quite a bit, hid skills may have been a little off, but he made up for it with his personality. Everything was cooked just right. My daughter and I got medium rare steak and my son got salmon. I got a few rolls of sushi as well. They tasted good, but I thought they were a little on the small size. Quality of everything seemed very good too. Once finished I asked the kids if they liked this place or the other Hibachi place better that we’ve been to the last few times and they both said Kabuto’s. So this might become our go to Japanese Steak House again.

    I’ve been to Kabuto a couple of times in the past fifteen years, although I’ve never ordered takeout until today. I was really in the mood for a juicy and flavorful steak. I couldn’t decide between Hondo’s, O Charley’s, Outback, or Texas Roadhouse. At the last minute, I decided to go with Kabuto for takeout instead. I had a generous appetite. I decided to try their Hibachi Filet Mignon. I was expecting to get at least an eight ounce steak with the price being $29. I drove by to pick it up and neglected to check the bag before I departed. I somehow ended up receiving a 6oz steak along with a sample of a few other things. In the sampler I received two pieces of shrimp, fried veggies, and chopped lettuce. My very first impression of the meal was negative. I probably ate the entire steak in two minutes, it was that small. The steak was an 8/10 on taste alone, but it left me wanting a larger portion. I don’t eat fish so I discarded the two shrimp pieces. The rice was flavorful, but I was trying to avoid carbs for my diet, so I barely touched it. The lettuce wedges were fresh as can be. I wasn’t a fan of the fried vegetables. The onions probably had the best taste consistency of them. All in all, I wasn’t pleased with what I received for takeout just based on the amount of steak to eat for my main course at $40. I would recommend dine in over takeout, but you may have a bigger range of an appetite than me. For anyone that wants more steak, definitely order their 10 ounce instead of the filet mignon. I wasn’t expecting that least amount of steak when I could have gotten two 16 ounce sirloin steaks at Texas Roadhouse for $40.

    Never eating sushi at this place again. I’m not sure if it was a crazy day or what but the yellow tail was not fresh at all. Looked cooked and the tuna was slimy and was frozen. The rice was just dry and hard. Drinks was good and apps. The next day was a killer.

  167. Kristle Fields 2021/08

    I came in with a party of 11. I have gluten intolerance, and they cook everyone’s food at the same time on the grill, therefore I knew ahead of time that I was going to order sushi. The waitress was very rude once I told her that I was not ordering any of the entrees. She was hesitant about getting the sushi menu after I told her 3 (not ONCE but THREE) times that I was certain that I wanted sushi. She rudely took my bowl and plate that was on the table. Although an 18% gratuity is expected for parties over 6 , my fiance and I were not served soup and salad like everyone else all because we did not order an entree. Not only that, they put both of our sushi orders on the same plate! Yes we are a couple, however, I was expecting my own plate. I do not appreciate being treating like a second class citizen or having to sit there watching my family eat soup and salad just because you all couldn’t convince me to order something that I could not eat due to health reasons. The sushi was ok but the service was horrible!

    Total disappointment from what this place used to be. It’s nasty and needs to be cleaned badly. They also add an 18% tip onto EVERY check making this way overpriced meal even worse. And I know what you’re thinking, you pay for the show. Well we got no show. No egg flips, no shrimp toss … nothing. And he didn’t even clean the grill. Left it nasty with food everywhere and jetted. Go to another Japanese steakhouse cuz this one has run its course.

    We came there this past Friday evening for my friends birthday the service was really great the chef was very friendly very engaging but we were really disappointed with the food ….the food was not good , and the portions of the food compared to how much you pay was way too small , we did not get a lot of food for what we paid , and like I said the food did not taste all that great but we did enjoy the chef and the service. By the time the food came on our plate the rice was cold and the yum yum sauce made the food even colder. I did not really enjoy my experience as far as the food goes but again the chef was very nice. We will not be coming back to this location

    Kabuto Roll was delicious, very flavorful; Was torched on the top something I will have them skip if I return.. The Mark Roll was good but needs some sauce, dry.. Worth it to get the 14$ vs 5$ Roll.. Husband had the Steak and shrimp Habachi with lobster and scallops; that was brought to the table.. It was not as much meat as would be expected for the price.. steak was overcooked but taste was ok.. Overall Overpriced.. 3 Rolls and One Habachi for 2 people after tip and tax was 125$.. fast food with decent service

    I enjoy their food but am very disappointed with them charging a 18% gratuity because of the covid . We all are dealing with the struggles of the covid, wearing a mask and losing money but to charge gratuity for the covid smdh. a tip is based on performance not for your inconvenience thats truly appalling. The cost of what we pay for the food includes for services rendered as well as the cost of the food itself which I’ve also noticed they are skimping on but yet goin up on the price of .

    This was the worst experience that I have had at any Hibachi restaurant. The front staff was fine in seating us and making sure our drinks and appetizers were given to us. Once the chef came from the back to prepare and serve the food the issues began. First he did not read our orders with modifications, then he started the cook the rice and vegetables. He left the rice and vegetables on the table while he cooked the shrimp, scallops, chicken, steak, and salmon. He used the same spatula to take off the raw meats, rice and vegetables. He cooked all of the food together on the grill before serving any food and he used the same spatula to cook and serve the food. He started giving everyone their portion of shrimp he ran out when he got to my boyfriend and I and we were both given less shrimp then anyone else in our party. When I asked him to give me more yum yum sauce he told me no. Then gave me five bowls of sauce and laughed “Is that enough”. He was rude and only did two tricks (the fire and onion trick) the entire time he cooked.

  208. Ab (Abby) 2021/01

    I wish I could give no stars……It started out so nice the decor and atmosphere seemed beautiful! We were asked to wait 30 minutes. No problem… However, the place was not even busy. Was plenty of open tables. I understand trying to group people together if you’re short staffed but covid is still a thing……. We were escorted to a table and then two other families that we didn’t know were seated at the same table. There was absolutely no room. ( none of us were small people may I add ) And no warning sign or anything to indicate they ARE NOT socially distancing anymore. When we politely asked to be spaced out we were given the phrase ” that’s just how we do it here.” In the rudest snarkiest tone. By far the most uncomfortable and very unprofessional restaurant I’ve been to in a very long time……

    On the website, there’s a curbside pickup option however once I arrived to the restaurant and called them the hostess rudely informed me that I had to come inside to get my order and that no one was bringing my food outside. This was an inconvenience because I had a sleeping child in the car and I had already selected curbside pickup for my preordered food. They falsely advertise that they have curbside pickup, but in fact do not!

    This was not our first visit to a hibachi restaurant, and not the first to a Kabuto’s. The chef was rude, and not very entertaining. The portions at the restaurant were smaller when compared to others. Plus we noticed he had a plate of what looked like spaghetti noodles. When asked about them he jokingly replied that was his dinner. After the rice, veggies and the meats were done, he starts cooking the noodles. And then proceeds to plop them on our plate. We were in awe as to what he had done. We did not order this nor did we expect it. It was not good.

    Horrible experience. From the time we walked in, absolutely no hospitality. We waited and stood and he just kept walking around. Not once did he greet us properly or even say something like “hi, please wait 5mins or I will be right back with you” then our waiter looked like she was coked out with wide eyes and dilated pupils. She wasnt warm or friendly or even personable. Just cold, like the rest of the staff who seemed to be on opium or something. Really weird vibe. My only highlight of that night was our chef. He seemed to be very happy, bubbly, and excited to be of a service to me and my party. Later on, the man who seated us came back and said 2 people came to report that my 2yr old toddler is coughing, ASSuming he had coronavirus. I had to get on his level and tell this man that this is my son, and I love him, and do he think I would be dining out spending $60 on a meal while my son is sick sitting in a dam high chair? Tf type of sense does this make? I had to tell him my son health is way more important than a $60 meal and that I would definitely be home with my little sweet guy, allowing him to lie down and be comfortable instead of out and about. If all of that didnt spoil my experience with kabutos, then this did. The waiter came back with take out boxes, as if saying we have to leave. 🤷🏿‍♀️😱 Really? This was the most horrible experience ever, and what I hated most was tipping. Because our chef did so well, I wanted to tip him. But the man said the tip gets splited between the waiter and the chef. But I really preferred to tip the chef. Not the waiter. Other than the chef, I got really weird vibes from the staff, like zombies or something. Never EVER again.

    I ordered takeout last night and the man on the phone was extremely rude. He kept rushing me while I was placing my order and hung up in my face before I could finish asking him a question. I ended up picking up the food and it was not worth the money at all. The portions were small, flavor was lacking, and it didn’t even taste fresh.

    Made a reservation in the morning, confirmed the reservation in the afternoon, and upon arriving for the reservation, the manager informed us that we didn’t have a reservation and that we’d have to wait 30 minutes.

    Mane HIGHWAY ROBBERY@ IT’S FINEST, I just left Kabutos a few mins ago. It’s no way I spent $65 for chicken and shrimp hibachi with 15 squares of chicken an 7 shrimp.

  241. Karen Branch 2020/06

    Celebrated a birthday with family and friends. Bad experience 1 guest left. No social distancing. Staff wore mask but it was extremely crowded and our hibachi table was full. My party and another family. Staff rude. Messed up our order. Air conditioner was broke. It was horrible.

    We loved our visit. The attendants, servers, and chefs are amazing. We went to celebrate our daughter’s 16th birthday. It was a special treat! Some of the unique things are that everyone is served at the same time, you watch the cook prepare the meal, the cook interacts with everyone. They provide samples and entertain the young and old. Our 3 year old grandson kept saying, “this is wild, this is some fun!”. Imagine going to dinner and everyone is having a good time. This is a special place.

  259. Zosia Wozniak 2020/03

    Always a treat to go.
    Delicious food and most of the chiefs are entertaining. Reasonably priced.

  260. Lauren 2020/03

    Can I give 0 stars? THE WORST EXPERIENCE I’VE ever had. I didn’t get my roll I ordered as an APPETIZER until my food was ready. I ordered the dragon roll without sauces due to an allergy and it came out with everything on it. The server then acted like we never even talked about that before. I told her to correct it and she told me I had to ask the manager. I asked the manager he said sure he’d fix it…..I ate my entire meal and we were getting our checks and I had to ask him where my roll was. He goes and gets it…IT WAS ALL RICE. I told him the problem and that I wasn’t paying for that. He gets sassy with me and says fine. Takes it away and that’s it. I used to be a server, I’m VERY lenient. I only tipped because of the chef being nice. I hope he gets the whole tip because no one else here deserves anything with how I was treated.

    About the food lab the atmosphere been there for so many years my mom was pregnant with me when I was going there so I kind of grew up eating at Kabuto and I love it I still go there today even being 32 years old

    refused to take my to-go order without payment first. Question for the owner, do you take payment up front from the dine-in customers? With so many options for Hibachi, we wont be back.

  285. DESTINY POPPELL 2019/11

    Terrible experience. I’ve never left a Google Review, but for this place I’m making an exception. I was told I could not add teriyaki sauce to my vegetables. I offered to pay to have it cooked on to my vegetables in addition to my teriyaki chicken and the chef very rudely told me no. I asked him for an explanation and he told me no they do not do that. I’ve worked in the restaurant business on and off since high school… I’ve never heard of not giving your customer what you want. I will not be back.

  286. Cen 2019/11

    I’ve been here a few times over the years to celebrate birthdays with my family. I was here a few weeks ago to celebrate yet again another bday. It’s unfortunate to know that they now charge you to get a group of workers to sing + the dessert. A lot of places do it for free like the Cheesecake Factory in shortpump. Don’t get me wrong the food is always great and tasty, and the portions are a lot. No complaints there.

  287. Asha “OshKosh” Daniels 2019/11

    My experience was great. Didn’t have to wait long. We went for a friend’s and daughters dinner night out. We lucked up and got our own little section. Food was delicious.. Its a little pricey but we enjoyed ourselves.

  293. Sara Guzman 2019/11

    The facility is very nice but compared to other similar restaurants, the portions were small and there could have been more flavor.

  294. Tracey M 2019/11

    Really, this is an overrated way to spend your hard earned dollar. Sure, the show is good but maybe just once is enough in a lifetime unless, like us on that night, you get a showman who’s game is just not on. Surely you can find much better Japanese cuisine elsewhere. You get some meat and a whole lot of filler and how much did you spend?

  301. Tracy P 2019/10

    Kabutos is a staple in Richmond. It’s a dinner and showmanship of the chefs. And tho some people may say ‘but it’s the same thing every time’, I beg to differ. Each chef is different, you meet new people every time you go. To me, that’s what makes this place special.

  302. Kevin Weidman 2019/10

  308. Thomas Heidler 2019/10

    I’m giving this rating do to the price and food taste. I go to a restaurant alot similar down by fort Lee and the portions are bigger, more tasty, and cheaper. The cook was a good sport and funny put on a ok show but not as good as the other place. Probably wont be back. Who charges extra for the fried rice

  309. Matthew Pigg 2019/09

    Always a treat to go here. Awesome staff and great food.

    The shrimp im my Hibachi Shrimp was EXTREMELY GRITTY, it wa like chewing sand 😞. My fried rice taste like scrambled eggs, it was was like 1/3 egg 😞. …

  311. Mysterious Walrus 2019/09

    Really good and classic Japanese Hibachi place. Each person has to pay an 8.50$ minimum and the wait is relatively long but I do suggest this place to anyone that loves Japanese food or just loves really good steak or shrimp. Even though the food is pretty expensive the quality of the food is fair enough with the price. If you go here I hope you enjoy the chefs tricks on the grill!

  312. Krystal S 2019/09

    A delectable fusion of entertainment, great food, and even better service! Pricey, but worth the occasional splurge for something special.

  313. Terrie Thompson 2019/09

    I asked for teriyaki to be cooked on the hibachi grill on my vegetables and fried rice in addition to the teriyaki being cooked on to my steak. I offered to pay for the additional teriyaki sauce and the chef without hesitation said no. I then asked for him to separate my vegetables and rice so that it does not affect the other customers vegetables and rice and he said no. I asked for an explanation and he said no just pour it on yourself. I explained it tastes different when poured on top vs being cooked on it and he again refused. I then asked for a to go cup for my drink and the server said no, they do not have to go cups which is untrue because I saw them give one while I was there. Overall bad experience would not recommend. While we were there the table behind us got up and walked out because their server refused to let them substitute vegetables for extra rice or even pay for an additional side of rice. I was also unable to purchase white sauce to go. Lastly, they don’t serve soup with carry out even though you pay the say as if you ate in and get the soup.
    Horrible place.

    We go here as a family once per year as a tax return treat. My family is large enough to cover an entire table so we never have to wait for others like you would if you were a couple. The food is prepared right in front of you so you know what’s in it and it’s good. The manager was particularly helpful and kind after our visit explaing some of the traditional Japanese items to the children.

    Due to Kobe steakhouse closing, my friends and I decided to try someplace new for dinner. We were hopeful to find a new place but unfortunately Kabuto will NOT be that place. After a subpar experience at dinner, they would not accept the coupon we had from their website because it wasn’t “printed”- we live in a digital world and it does not say you MUST print in order to use coupon but nonetheless we said okay forget the coupon, then we packaged our leftovers and asked for a to go sauce for our leftover entrees and they informed us they don’t give sauce to go. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED overall. Food was not that great and prices are higher than your normal Japanese steakhouse. Will not recommend.

    We decided to go late in the evening without a reservation and expected to wait. To our surprise, they were able to seat us quickly at a cooking table with just another group of 3 people. The waitress took our drink and meal orders and shortly afterward the cook came to perform. The cooking routine was pretty standard, but well performed nonetheless. The food quality and quantity was excellent. We’ve never been disappointed going here and will continue to do so.

    My girlfriend and I went to dine in there today 05/27 around 6pm. Two waiters (a girl and a guy) and another guy (possibly a bar tender) were chatting and giggling as we arrived. We requested a seat for two and the girl with unpleasant look told us we had to wait for about 10 minutes and we agreed to wait. None of them were friendly and didn’t show good reception. After waiting for 10 minutes, we decided to leave because we were not happy with the reception. They didn’t care as we left. They could improve the hospitality by being friendly.

Awful customer service and poorer communication skills. Very disappointing especially for the young boys in our party.

    Lunch was good but don’t expect the ‘Express Lunch’ to be fast at all. Sure it’s less expensive because you don’t sit at the hibachi table, but it still takes just as long to get your food. And my sesame chicken didn’t have sesame seeds!!!

    Their sushi chef is the best ever, I only ever get sushi here bc every time I go somewhere else, it’s bad, over priced or cheap short cut quality

  385. Ryan Mitchem 2018/11

    Fantastic and involving showmanship, great food

  386. Arthur Bea 2018/11

    Expensive and skimpy on the food, won’t go there again.

  387. Naomi Kite 2018/11

    Only the 2nd time I’ve been here. This time was by far better. The chef was so funny & talented! Oh, and the food was FANTASTIC!!

    Excellent Hibachi Style and portions are enough for an appetite. Prices are reasonable for the quality. Hint* ALWAYS ask for more Yum Yum sauce.

  393. Caroline Medek 2018/10

    I was very upset from my experience tonight. They went up on prices and have cut back on how much you get. It was Only a little bit of vegetables that they gave us, only a little bit of rice and they messed up my order. Will definitely be finding a new place to eat from now on.

  394. Patrick Jones 2018/09

    One of my favorite places in richmond for lunch.. great price and a very generous portion

  395. Sheila Lozada 2018/09

    Love hibachi placed but this was disappointing. Staff lacks customer skills. Overprice and non accommodating. Hibachi fillet was pricier than the competition plus does not come with fried rice! They charge you $3 more plus no substitutions! If you don’t want veggies they charge u $3 more for rice!! Walked out and went to Sakura. I had great food at the normal price plus they offered substitutions without even asking!!!

    Great food and enjoyed the chef cooking in front of us.

  406. Morganne B. 2018/08

    This place is not good. At all. They put carrots and peas in the rice (I’m grown, not 12), the shrimp was underdone and he left my salmon on the grill entirely too long and didn’t put any teriyaki sauce on top. I’m not sure if it was the place or that particular chef but I’ll stick with Yamato. The decor was outdated as well. It felt like I was in Austin Powers:Goldmember.

  407. christine byrne 2018/08

    Great service, great food, and attention to kids. But the lost star is due to the fact that they charge an extra 2.50 for EACH ORDER OF FRIED RICE. AS IF we would come here and get plain white rice?? I’ll never go back on principle. Going where they include fried rice.

    Staff were rude on me when taking photos of me and my mom. The other staff yelled at me as if I’m a criminal. The man was screaming like as if he’s some rich spoiled brat kid. When I told him why he turned his back on me he just said whatever. and walked like a coward

  413. Charles Tillman 2018/07

    Good food..prices are high!

  418. Jen c 2018/06

    The food is good, but it is very pricey. Be prepared to spend at minimum $20 for one person, and there isn’t much “flare” during the lunch hour (dinner usually comes with a more entertaining presentation). Also if you’re looking for sushi be sure to call first to see what the hours are, as they don’t offer it all day.

    Only go once or twice a year. Its never disappointment but it’s also never a place I would say it’s the best there is. It’s what you expect.

  435. Brittany 2018/04

    I haven’t been here in a few years so I decided to go with my best friend. After we order we waiting for about an hour for the cook to come out then an couple comes as well. When the cook gets there he goes around making sure our order is correct. I told him no mushrooms & no zucchini and he begins to ask two more times so I’m over it at this point. Because I’m not understanding how he don’t know what the ticket say. Usually there is some kind of conversation or jokes; maybe his tired but idk I think he didn’t want to cook for us I just don’t know. He does two tricks the volcano with fire and egg toss to see if people can catch it. So getting to the food, I ordered Hibachi Shrimp, my friend ordered Hibachi chicken & shrimp, and her son and nephew get an kids hibachi chicken with white rice. The couple at the table as well ordered chicken and shrimp. So as he is plating everybody food from the looks of it, he gave the couple more food, my friend and I got half a plate of food. She had less shrimps with more chicken and rice; I got more shrimps with a half plate of rice.

    I would give them half a star because the cook needs help with customer service. There were four other tables with the chef making the customers laugh and having small talk. The food was ok not really good and they are very overpriced. Now I remember why I stopped going to them. For $26 for shrimp and rice it needs to taste like 5 stars not 3 stars from the food court. And I never been to an hibachi restaurant where they charge for fried rice which was $2.95. I must have skipped over it on the menu or something because I would had just got white rice. The only great part of dinner was getting to see my best friend and the kids.

  436. Jackie Fiorello 2018/04

    Food is ok. Service is great. My husband and I took my Dad there for his birthday. We told 3 different people, the hostess, the server, and the chef at our table, but none of them did anything. We were sat with a young lady having a phone conversation throughout and a family with very young kids whose father was watching a movie on his phone the entire time!
    We were never offered desert or a desert menu. As we were walking out, I realized my brand new shoes were sticking to the floor with every step. The floors were filthy!

    I’m a big fan of Japanese steak foods and I have been lots of different places.
    But this place? I strongly suggest that you should avoid this restaurant.
    The food was terrible( used way too much butter and soy sauce) and the service was messed up.
    The chefs didn’t even know how to cook.

    I would never go again!!!!!!

  467. Carol Marie Chantrell 2017/08

    Aweful server. When we arrived, two staff passed and didn’t welcome us. The server (young female) was very rude and was mad when she had to bring us a fresh water because she refilled it with sprite. Our tempura came after the meal not as an app. Rude poor service and expenise for poor quality food

  468. Patricia Faulk 2017/08

    Lunch and a show

  469. brandon madison 2017/08

    Food was good, not the best I’ve had but I’m from NC and we have a lot more options.

    BUT. The service from start to finish was the WORST I’ve EVER experienced in my life at any given restaurant.

    We had a 7:30 reservation for 2. We checked in, they didn’t give us a buzzer, 2 couples walk in behind us with the same reservation and were seated in front of us, I brought it to the hostesses attention, she did not apologize, but we were sat immediately.

    Our server was awful. I don’t know what kind of day he was having, could’ve been there all day, may have had a cold, but he was still getting paid so I still expect quality service. (I work in food and I tip well) he did not say you’re welcome once to anytime anyone said thank you, actually the cook didn’t either, and while he was taking my wife’s order he sneezed INTO his hand and walked away. He was gone long enough to wash his hands so I hope that’s what he did. When he returned he didn’t apologize or verify her order but went on to the next person although she wasn’t finished. After we were finishing up our meals I notice that even though I ordered the chicken and steak dinner I only received the steak. I wasn’t upset but I didn’t wanna be charged for both, my wife politely pointed it out to our server and he said he would “try” to get it fixed. He then disappears for easily 20 minutes. My pregnant wife goes to find him at the front with all of the bills printed and laying out open trying to decide which bill needs to be fixed. I point to our bill and it gets fixed in a matter of seconds, I have no idea what he had been doing the last 20 minutes. My wife looks at the check to find that they added an 18% gratuity to the bill and questions why it’s there, when what she assumes is he manager jumps in to say “we add an 18% gratuity to parties of 6 or more” which my pregnant, now very annoyed wife responds with “we weren’t a party of 6 or more so I don’t understand why it’s on there.” The server says he can have it taken off and again is fixed within a matter of seconds. He walks away with the rest of the bills for our table, she says she stopped and talked to one of the other employees for a good 5 minutes before returning to the table. When she came back she realized that we were the only people with our bills and our server returns shortly with the rest.

    I have as of this posting had a great experience with service and food. Especially the express lunch.

  471. Richard Lilgeberg 2017/07

    We should have left when we noticed that at lunch time we were the only people in the huge restaurant. We ordered calamari which came quickly but was super over fried and extremely rubbery. After one piece each we couldn’t make ourselves have another piece of the generous portion. The sushi rolls were ok (not bad but not great). One of my friends ordered the teriyaki chicken it was decent but he had to order two plate of it and he was still hungry afterwards.

    Disappointing……I remember when going to Kabuto meant a great meal with a good show and atmosphere. Not anymore. I went there for lunch this past weekend and it was not good. While the waitress was nice, she was not attentive and timely. The chef was either new or just not good. He began by dropping the spatula twice while introducing himself…which made us all a little concerned. He didn’t put on a show except for trying to light the onion volcano. That turned into him dumping lighter fluid all over the place just to get it to light which created a huge fire. He didn’t do anything extra. The portions are small and they include the mushrooms with the protein item to make it seem like more. Overall……I think this was my last visit to Kabuto.

  488. Bella Samantha 2016/10

    Me, my girlfriend and her mother went out to celebrate my girlfriend’s Birthday at this place. When we got into the parking lot, my girlfriend asked “are they closed? Where are all the people?” We walked in and the person attending us had no greeting and did not speak or tell us where we can sit to wait. So we took it upon ourselves to do so. We waited for about 20 mins for a seat which was fine. Patience is virtue. Then we were finally seated. We waited another 30 mins for our chef to come out after ordering our food. The waitress explained to us that we can get a combination on the menu or create our own combination of two meats or three meats. I chose this combination: salmon, shrimp and chicken because I don’t eat red meat or pork, my girlfriend got the chicken and shrimp combination, and my girlfriend’s mom got the combination: steak, shrimp and chicken plus drinks. Then we ordered a Happy Birthday which they charged 9.50$, anything for my baby so why not. We got our ticket that rang up to a WHOPPING 174$. the waitress charged us for 2 shrimp 15$, chicken 5$, 3 fried rice extra charge 2.97 etc they took it upon themselves to add the tip to our receipt of 24$ and some change. First she mislead us and then they are way over priced. A steak and chicken dinner shouldn’t cost 28 then charge to put fried rice. They basically over charged us for a meal that should have simply been 18$ with everything included , maybe a little more for seafood. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE UNLESS YOU’RE PLANNING ON SPENDING MONEY ON OVER PRICED FOOD. NO WONDER THE PARKING LOT WAS NEARY EMPTY.

  491. Pickle Juice 2016/07

    NEVER AGAIN! This was the worst hibachi restaurant I have ever been to. The food is overpriced and the taste is mediocre. This is the only hibachi style restaurant I’ve been to that charges you almost $3 extra to fry your rice! If I’m paying $20 for a meal, why should I have to pay an extra $3 for a man to just toss rice on the skillet for a few seconds? The salad dressing was too salty and the food was bland. On top of that, our chef was extremely rude! He did not entertain us, he didn’t do any tricks, and he got irritated when we asked him for extra sauce.

  492. Betty Manen 2016/06

    I just left this place a few minute ago my experience was awful I spend $170 for a $20 worth of food and service was terrible I’ll never recommend with internement of the cooking the food am was under Cooke as well as the rice please don’t waste your time I have been to different restaurant include high end delicate restaurant and still came out much reasonable .

    So me and my friends tried kabuto one as soon as we got in there they had us waiting for about 30 mins second of all once we set down to ordered hibachi chicken which was 18.20 not only that I asked for fried rice he said that it’s a extra $2.79 which doesn’t make since because I thought hibachi fry your rice not only that he gave us a small portion a baby wouldn’t get full off of that and last but not least they were not friendly at all only person that was friendly was our waiter . Will I go here again HELL TO THE NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  499. William Testerman 2015/12

    Best hibachi in town. Great bar and sushi. Some variability in the “show” – some cooks are more engaged with their audience than others.

    Kabuto was the worst restaurant experience we have had in Richmond. Management was awful. They served bad drinks which was a consensus at our table. They refused to take them back. The manager treated us very poorly and we will never go back here again. I highly recommend not going to Kabuto in Richmond, VA.

  502. N LaMontagne 2014/11

    Went there for lunch, and was generally disappointed. One ordered hibachi, one ordered sushi.
    The hibachi used bagged frozen vegetable medley in the fried rice – carrot and peas make sense, but corn, lima beans, and green beans don’t seem to belong in hibachi rice. It seemed less than authentic based on experiences at other Japanese restaurants. Overall, the rice was bland. We were working with a food allergy, and even though the chef made sure to mention it before cooking, he forgot and used the allergen anyway. The management apologized profusely when they found out.
    The sushi was a mixed bag. I ended up waiting longer than I expected to wait for lunch, and the Hibachi was done by the time it came out. The spider roll was amazing, and beautifully plated. The sushi meal itself was less impressive; some of the fish seemed like it wasn’t the highest quality, and one piece was downright unpleasant – it had a hard, rubbery texture and was completely flavorless (it wasn’t squid, nor octopus; I couldn’t identify it though).
    Overall, it seemed like the ingredients used were of a lower quality than one would expect from a restaurant that charged that much, and the service seemed lacking. The one thing they had, though, was good atmosphere and good technique. I would not go again, not for the price they charged.

  503. Betty sedia 2014/08

    We have been to the Midlothian location in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it so when I saw a groupon I purchased it without realizing it was for the one off Broad St. Mp boggoe, we jsut drove a bit further for dinner. There were 5 in our party. They kept our water glasses full and the chef was entertaining, but the meals were a big disappointment overall. We were served the clear soup and it was hot then they brought out salads which had a sauce that I did not care for. Generally I always ask for any dressing on the side but since it was included with the meal and they didn’t ask I did not think to tell them so that was my fault. Next they brought out lukewarm dishes of white rice and then the chef started to cook. When I got the 2 shimp that are the appetizer I should have asked to change my meal right then. They were not awful but a little tough. I had the shrimp, my daughter had the steak and the other 3 had the chicken. The vegetables (zucchini & onions) were cooked and put on our plates before the meat was started. Once the meats were served the chef added bean sprouts. My shrimp was tough, the chicken was so-so, only the steak was good. By time all our food was on the plate the rice and veggies were cold. We all agreed that it is not worth a return visit to this location.

    I have been here twice in ten years and both experiences were horrible. We asked the waitress a question about the sushi and she said she didn’t know and didn’t have the time to find out. We waited 15 minutes before we even were asked about drinks and then 30 minutes before we could get a refill. The dinner setup i.e. fried rice that is supposed to be included according to menu, we were charged extra for and drinks that were free refills according to menu we were charged extra for. The chef didn’t put on a show and under cooked the food as well was rude when he was informed that a child at the table had a seafood allergy. The Kabuto’s on south side is awesome and you get your money’s worth. It costs at least $25 more on the one on Broad and the service is bad. The chef got the order wrong on a customer, by when he put the order of shrimp on the wrong plate and the customer had already been eating on his plate. The chef tried to take the shrimp off the customers plate and put it on the right customers plate. Absolutely disgusting. This place has nothing good about. For the money you would expect a lot better service.

    The sushi was okay. I have had better but I have had worse. I like spicy and the volcano roll had much more heat on it then I was expecting not saying that is a bad thing. The service was the issue. Our waitress disappeared at end of the meal. She dropped off the check but never came back. Like I was sitting for well over 10 minutes. Had to get up and find a bartender to pay for the meal. I use to love Kabutos when I was younger but I feel the place has fallen a bit.

    My family and I ate dinner there tonight. The food was okay, but the prices of your food is too expensive! Why do you charge extra money for fried rice it should come with my meal at no extra charge when I am already paying more than $20.00 per plate of food. It added $16.00 to our bill. The food portion was not enough either. This is the first time that I nor my daughters have not had extra food to take home. The only two good things I have good to say about my experience is that my scallops were cooked perfectly and our waitress was great. I will be passing this info on to my friends because I would not want them to be disappointed too.

    Food was good need to serve more food on the plate for what they charge $28 per meal $2.50 for water down drinks.

    This is one if the worst experiences I’ve ever had to endure in a restaurant. The food is ok but at $30.00 a plate you’d expect more. The young hostess/manager had no idea what customer service is and since he hardly speaks English, communication is a struggle; he actually wanted to get into a physical altercation in front of everyone but in end though better of it after he was confronted. My family and I went for a happy Thanksgiving dinner and left with an overpriced dinner and almost assaulted by the restaurant’s bad manager. The owner should really choose his employees more wisely.
    The waitress was nice but overwhelmed for having to serve two tables and the other manager should be more concerned about their customers. Overall really, really, really bad service and ok food for the price. To get fried rice a fee of three the dollars is added to an already overpriced dish? Stay away from this restaurant!!!

    I just love, Love, LOVE this place! I’ve been eating here for 20 years and I’m just getting started.

    we ordered the filet & shrimp dinner. the filet and shrimp were extremely small in portion. it was like 5 pieces of each and for a $28 meal?? they douced the vegetables in soy sauce, so i had drain my plate from all the soy sauce in my vegetables. the portions for vegetables & rice were three times the amount for steak & shrimp. i will never go again. they charged an additional $2.50 for your rice to be fried instead of steamed. what a rip off!
