I tried the chicken teriyaki and fried rice. Neither were good. The all dark meat chicken was overly salty and very greasy. The fried rice had a weird sweet taste and was also greasy. I also tried the tempura shrimp and veggies, those were pretty good, also on the greasy side, but they are, after all, fried.
Worst Japanese steakhouse experience ever!!!
I've been visiting japanese steakhouses for a while and honestly say this place is by far the worse. As soon as we entered the restaurant, we felt like being intruders. The atmosphere is very cold and unwelcoming.I must say everything in the menu is overpriced and you have to pay extra if you share your food. The steak was bad. They were brown before they were cooked. I thought it might be the sauce. My friend said hers tasted sour...Add to that the long wait time before i was actually served and nasty restroom. even though my experience was horrible... I must admit that they have a good sauce! All things considered... I will never visit this place again.
Coupons – On Sunday,02/19/12, while on vacation in Nashville,TN we heard a radio promotion for Kabuto's to PURCHASE 1/2 off dinner coupons for $10.00 a piece. We BOUGHT 4 of them and went to enjoy a nice lunch with friends. We had 2 separate checks and was told we were only allowed to use one coupon per table. We were very disappointed and asked to speak to the Manager. "ALI" came to the table and absolutely refused to help us resolve the situation. We were also charged for a salmon roll we did NOT order but respectfully paid for that as well. We understand that you can not use multiple coupons in one check but one per check seems reasonable. We were very frustrated and please know that it was bad enough we paid $40.00 for coupons that your company would not let us use but we also spent over $100.00 on the 2 tabs combined. We will NOT be returning to your establishment and we will make sure every friend, family member, Ex-coworker, etc will be aware of your lack of Customer Service and poor treatment. Manager "Ali" claimed he would be fired if he took a coupon from 2 separate checks since we sat at the same table? I find this hard to believe and clearly he needs to be properly trained on his "lack of management skills" or I am certain if you give him enough time, he will run the rest of your customers off.
Best Japanese – The chefs cook your meal to your liking in front of you. Kabuto has not only beautiful food, but is also very entertaining. There are tables of 8 people, with the chef standing in the middle. They do plenty of tricks. It really is a good night out. It has become my family tradition to have birthday dinners here. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Worst Japanese Steak House Meal We've Ever Had – We ate at Kabuto for the second time in six months on March 28, 2010. The first visit was pretty good, but not great, so we decided to give them another chance. We realized that we had the same cook as the first time who was very noisy with lots of banging of the spatula, and loud talking, but not actually very skillful. He left the grill three different times to go check on the order and get more food. We remembered that he had left the grill to correct the orders the last time we ate there. The fried rice was very sub-par for Japanese fried rice. Even our teenage son said it wasn't good. The Mahi-Mahi was the smallest piece I've ever had anywhere, and the filet mignon had a really off taste to it, like liver or something. We did not eat it all, and worried about its possible later effects on our digestive systems. The bathroom was also not clean and had a bad odor to it. It was unquestionably the worst Japanese Hibachi Grill meal we've ever had, and we've had many.
Great Service – I come to Kabuto when I pass thru Nashville. I have been there 9 or 10 times and everytime the experience has been awesome. Food is great, service is spectacular and the price is affordable. Thank You
You threatened to call the Police on our anniversary. – My wife, children, and sister-in-law ate at the Kabuto Japanese Steak House on September 11th 2009 at approximately between 6:50pm-07:35pm. I am serving my third combat tour in Iraq and have not seen my wife in almost a year now. Today on September 11th, it is our third wedding anniversary. My wife paid for her sister and while ordering asked the waitress to find how much a piece of lobster would cost in small portion. The waitress could not find on the menu where lobster was priced and so it was ordered along with food for all seated. At the end of the meal my wife was informed that a small piece of lobster had a cost of 14 dollars and when she asked why she was paying full price for a portion of a full meal that she did not receive. This is when the manager stated that he would call the Police on my wife if she did not pay full price for this piece of lobster. My wife then pays 80 dollars for her, her sister, one five year old and two 2 year olds. So I want to thank you for your professionalism and compassion in making my wife who is alone and especially sad today feel little and made to cry on our wedding anniversary while I am thousands of miles away. I will never take my family to your restaurant again.
Recommended – This was by far the one of the best restaurants I have been to in a while me and my 5 yr old daughter had a great time i would recommend it to friends thanks !!
Kaputo is the best.. – I like Kabuto. the food is great. The chef's are nice. I would advise anyone who goes to ask for Wickson to be your chef. I go to Kabuto with my mom and we LOVE WICKSON. and his the best chef at kaputo...
Kabutos is amazing! – Ok. I dont see how anyone could NOT like Kabuto. the food is great. The chef's are hilarious. I would advise anyone who goes to ask for Frank to be your chef. I go to Kabuto at least 4 times week with my boyfriend and we LOVE Frank. His food is the best and he knows how to make you laugh. We are very picky about how our food is cooked and what we order. He knows how we like everything and the waiters have our drinks ready without even having to ask. The service is very nice. If you are looking for something fun to do and you have an appetite, I would suggest Kabuto! The chef's do alot of little tricks, from throwing shrimp in your mouth, to making your rice look like a heart and making it beat, to making a volcano out of onions and having it explode. Kids would LOVE Kabuto. The chefs always make them smile. Or at least ive never seen anyone complain when I go there!! The only problem I have had was a hostest. But other than that Kabutos is amazing for the price you pay to eat it and the show you get.
