The service is absolutely horrific. I took clients to this place for lunch and after ordering, we waited 1 hour before we were served. Last night, I went back and had to search for the waitress at least three times because we were out of drinks, forgot apps, etc. I'm fairly forgiving if the restaurant is full, but each time, she was at the bar watching tv.....
I won't be back.
Could be better. After having arrived here in KC, I was so glad to find a sushi place so near, as I am a real sushi-lover. I was a little astonished to find fried calamares on the menue wich is definitely not a typical japanese dish. The rolls were good, with some unusual ingredients - which is nice. Service could be more friendly.
Worst service ever. I went for the first in 2001 and had good service and pretty good sushi. But on my most recent visit the quality of everything from service to food was terrible. The service was so bad that I came close to walking out. The walls and floor were so dirty that I really did not want to order food from this restaurant then on top of that when we received our food there little flies flying around our table indoors in February!? Will never go there again.
Excellent!. Kabuki is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner at a great price. I make it a point to stop in whenever I'm in KC. The food is fresh, and they are gracious hosts. The atmosphere is incredibly calming, which is perfect if you've had a long day of work or shopping. It became one of my top 5 KC favorites from the first time I dined there several years ago. If you're looking for an elegant and relaxing restaurant with wonderful cuisine and service, try Kabuki.
Great Sushi Great price!!. I waited for 15 minutes to finally be told that I could have just gone in to eat at the sushi bar. Took a while to get something to drink. Sushi chefs are very nice and friendly. They gave me some soy beans, to snack on which were good, but you can't eat the whole thing. I didn't know that. Open the pod and just eat the beans..to save yourself from the embarrassment. They have a huge variety of all the different kinds of sushi and make it special if you only want certain things. I ordered some rolls, yellow tail, white tuna, soup, & tried somthing new. All for 21 dollars....you can't beat that. Very Fresh!!
Great Japanese Food in Downtown KC. I'm not a fan of sushi. But when I worked in downtown KC for five years, this was a favorite lunch spot for my coworkers. I first tried tempura here, which is fantastic. Their salads are wonderful, too. Great atmosphere - the moment you walk in you'll forget you're in a mall. The food presentation and service are outstanding, too. Highly recommended.
Best Sushi Rolls in Kansas City. Kabuki, in the Crown Center shopping center in downtown Kansas City, offers the best maki sushi (rolls) in the Kansas City area. They offer a wide variety of unique rolls including a Salmon and Asparagus roll, Volcano roll covered in spicy sauce and lit on fire, Arrowhead Roll which comes complete with spicy sauce and asparagus. The sushi chefs and wait staff are very friendly and the sushi chefs also do a great job of presentation with their sushi. Prices can get expensive, but it is well worth it for the quality and selection of sushi often not found in other sushi restaurants around the city.
Kabuki Service Poor. We went during lunch hour and weren't greeted. We sat at the sushi bar and no one came up to us for 10 minutes. The sushi was not as fresh as it could have been. The waitress then messed up my check. The only good thing was that the sushi chefs were extremely nice! I would not go back...there are much better places for sushi in KC!
PO WANG. KABUKI IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST SUSHI IN TOWN ALL THE NEW LITTLE SUSHI PLACES OPENING UP AROUND THE METRO AREA JUST DON'T CUT IT IF YOU WANT TO GET $1 FROZEN LOW QUALITY PIECES OF SASHIMI THEN GO TO THOSE OTHER PLACES. BUT IF YOU WANT "A" QUALITY SASHIMI PREPERED BY REAL JAPANESE SUSHI CHEF THEN YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT KABUKI.
Midwesterners get an authentic taste of the Far East at this Crown Center sushi restaurant..
Tucked away in the Northeast corner of Crown Center's lower level, Kabuki is often overlooked, although it shouldn't be. The nine seats at the sushi bar give a great view of the master sushi chef, who is always willing to instruct diners in the fine art of wrapping and rolling. If those prime seats are already occupied, Kabuki's traditional Japanese seating adds to the experience.
This is one of the finest sushi bars in town, offering both sushi rolls and sashimi (raw fish). Exotic tableside service is always fun and preparations include sukiyaki (stir-fried pieces of meat, vegetable and tofu), shabu-shabu (raw meat and vegetable that diners cook at the table) and yose-nabi (Japanese-style bouillabaisse). Miso, udon, tempura, even green tea ice cream give diners a taste of the exotic. The problem is making a choice.
