  1. Yes, I have thoughts on them - icky, nasty, chewy, not-even-close-to-fresh fish thoughts.

    Steer clear - they're overpriced and oogie.

    1. While it's better than say Todai, it's not good sushi. Especially for the price you're paying, I'd pass.

        it's better than todai and it's also more expensive than todai.

      2. RUN the other way!! please! it's NASTY

        1. Since this original post was over a year ago, I recommend you folks try them again. Expecially the one on Foothill. Vast improvement on both the service and food side.

            There are too many great sushi places in LA to consider eating at Kabuki. I recently tried the one at Howard Hughes Center and didn't find it very good at all.

          2. Kabuki used to be a good Japanese restaurant when they were owned by the people who run/ran the Shogun in Pasadena. Kabuki got sold, went all "chain" and went downhill from there.
