So back again at one of my favorite spots in Tempe. I was sad when Paulina wasn't working tonight because she is an amazing waitress but I am happy to say that Jena was perfect! Friendly, helpful and super attentive. Now let's talk the food... In a word.... Perfect. The sushi is always on point and very fresh.
We showed up at 8:50pm on Saturday night, Kabuki closes at 9:30pm. We knew exactly what we wanted, so ordering would've taken less than 2 minutes. The young woman at the front was on her cell phone for about 3 minutes before acknowledging us, then told us that we couldn't sit down because it was just a few minutes before their last call for food. I then asked if we could order to-go, and she reluctantly granted permission for this, but then disappeared and said somebody would come get our order. Nobody returned. This was odd, since there were 2 other parties waiting to pick up to-go orders. I guess there was something offensive about our appearance. If she hadn't been on her phone (I think she did it purposely in order to get closer to "last call"), maybe we would've been allowed to eat, just like any other customer. I was so disappointed. This would've been my second time there, I loved it the first time just a few weeks prior... and by the way, the last time we came in, we showed up at 8:45pm, so for showing up 5 minutes later (with 40 minutes before closing time), we were not welcome in Kabuki restaurant. I am glad this happened though, we know we're not welcome there anymore, and we discovered King's Fish House restaurant on the way back to our car. It was awesome, great service, excellent seafood and sushi.
Great spot for sushi!! I’m sure other menu items are top notch as well, I just haven’t tried anything other than sushi here :) The atmosphere is really chill and laid back, very comfortable. The service here has always been wonderful, as well. We showed up the other day just before happy hour ended, and the bartender made sure to get our orders in for happy hour prices. That was much appreciated. When staff goes out of the way to accommodate customers, it ensures that I’ll be a frequent customer. Highly recommend ! Try the spicy tuna on crispy rice !
After a long wait we were seated. The service and food was outstanding. The price range was good as well. Our server John Paul was very knowledgeable about the menu.
Recently visited here on Saturday night. Overall, service was decent and the food was amazing as always. I wasn’t too happy with the very long wait to get a table though. We were told that the wait would be 11-20 minutes but we ended up waiting probably over an hour. We asked multiple times when the table would be ready but they kept ensuring us that we were up next. We saw groups of people leaving and it took a while for any of the staff to clean the tables and actually seat everyone that were waiting before us.
