Delicious but very pricey – Our first time back to Kabuto's since they moved across the street. The sushi is superb but gosh we had sticker shock. The special sushi charges were $3-$6 for ONE sushi, not a pair! We had a lovely foie gras sushi with raspberry sauce, the flavors blended in nicely. The toro was the best I've had anywhere, tender and not at all stringly. The unagi was tender and delicious. The blue fin tuna was so-so. The rice didn't hold well together & fell apart with our dragon roll. We got there at 5:30p when they opened & couldn't get a seat at the sushi bar for 4. I found the wait staff at the previous restaurant friendlier. Meal for 4 = $140, not including alcohol, and the men in the group complained they were still hungry afterwards because the rice in the sushi were small.
All the hype is true! Kabuto is amazing – I've been slow to go to Kabuto. I live above a fantastic sushi restaurant that I'm exceptionally loyal to, but will now split my sushi time betwixt the two. The menu was overwhelming with all of the creative choices. Half of our party stuck to the standard rolls for the not-so-adventurous, and the other daring half ordered things we'd never heard of or imagined! All were fantastic. The dragon rolls, tuna sampler, hamachi nigiri with pear and green mustard, ono with grapefruit??!!!
Be prepared to wait in line, but know it's worth the wait.
The best raw fish you can find – This is the best sushi I have had in the city. A must for the sushi lover!!!
Go there now! – This place is the best sushi I've had anywhere...ANYWHERE!!! The chef/owner has numerous, creative, Kabuto only sushi varieties. My personal favorites are the frogae (sp?, the goose liver) and the civiche. Whatever you do get there early or you'll be waiting outisde for a while.
I don't bother eating sushi anywhere else any more..can't say enough good things about this place.
In a class of its own – Kabuto doesn't just have the best sushi in San Francisco: it's the best sushi I've ever eaten ANYWHERE, hands down. Forget about the standard fare and order from the mind-boggling special sushi menu.
Great place to go! – You have to try their Green Tea Brulee, excellent! They serve multiple kinds of fishes from hawaii, even many different kinds of scallop for you to choose. Lots of creative dishes, excellent!
This place gets so crowded alway, but very popular!
Top Notch Sushi – I've never had anything bad here. The fish is incredibly bad and so creatively prepared. Try the special rolls and whatever they have special for the day (the more odd combinations will surprise you by how good they are!). The atmosphere is also terrific with a very neighborhood, family-run feel.
Sushi – The new location has a more contemporary feel, but it doesn't change the taste of the food....the nigiri items are great, and if you enjoy some creative rolls you'll love this place even more...
key word: FISH – If your not into the roll stuff, then this place it. Quality and variety,,,,,,EXCELLENT. If Bluefin available, definatley a must. Love the clam variety.
Great Sushi – I love sushi. The new location is more intimate, however you have to time it right to get in without a wait. The fish they serve is incredibly fresh. The sushi is very creative. My favorite sushi restaurant and Zagat agrees ranking it #1 in the Bay Area.
