So, I'm not really sure how to distinguish between Kabuki and La Pampa, the Argentinean restaurant with which this shares a building and menu, lol. Suffice to say that both the Peruvian-Japanese and the Argentinean food were amazing. We had the chaufa rice for the...Peruvian side of things and empanadas and Chicken Milanese for the Argentina side. All were delicious. Our server was very attentive, a little too attentive tbh. Waited over our shoulder and was able to accommodate any need we had. I highly recommend this place as it's affordable and has some great food.More

I came here for dinner and had a few dishes, starting with the tuna tataki, which was phenomenal (should have asked where the tuna came from!), along with one of the ceviches, which had soft octopus and that I also enjoyed. Then came the entrees,...which were so-so. We started with the shoyu ramen, which had good presentation but a few issues: there was too little broth and it was too salty, and the egg was hard-boiled instead of soft-bailed as standard in ramen. The sushi selection was interesting and the toppings on the spicy salmon roll surprised me! But it didn't seem like they used the right type of sushi rice at the right temperature - for whatever reason, the sushi tasted like something that just came out of a grocery store fridge in California. One other small thing was that the sushi didn't come with soy sauce by default - I had to ask for it, and the waiter then brought it up in a sauce cup instead of a flatter dish that I could actually mix the wasabi with. The drink selection was ok here - the sangria was pretty good - but I would have been thrilled if they had imported beers/sake or even Peruvian pisco sours instead of just a generic drink selection. I realize that it's a long way from Japan (though a little closer to Peru) and having a restaurant like this in Colombia is already fantastic, but there's definitely room for improvement and think this place just needs to do a few more things right to get to the next level.More

It was our first time in Medellin and my partner and I came to try Kabuki - Alexandre and Natalie provided exceptional service. The sushi was phenomenal and the Argentinian steak was very tasty! Would definitely recommend for a date night out or with friends!

It was like a fusion of sorts, blending two styles of Japanese cuisine. If you are looking to try something new this would be a good choice. If you are looking for more traditional Japanese style food this may not be for you. Flavor was...good.More

Cute fusion restaurant. There were two menus, Argentinian and Japanese/Peruvian. We ordered off the Japanese menu - shrimp ceviche a la crema and tuna tataki. It was tasty and I appreciated the new take on old favorites.

We highly recommend! My partner and I ordered empanadas (the best we’ve had in Medellin), ceviche, carpaccio de salmon, and two entrees. Everything was very, very good! Natalie, our server, was perfect-so friendly, so helpful, and so accommodating! She offered us recommendations and was so...patient as we switched between Spanish and English! So thankful for her and to find this gem of a restaurant!More

The food is not very good, there is no vegetable in the plate and the fish is of low quality. We understand why they have a good note here though, cause they almost oblige you to give a good note asking you to and watching...you writing the comment....More

We went here because of tripadvisor. When we arrived, it is in just the same building as La Pampa. Maybe they took it over? The dishes had a high price, but when something is good and big we can understand it. Unfortunately our rice and...seafood was everage in taste and not that big. The sushi was ok but not that cold/fresh looking/tasting. They also look a lot to clean everything (to put more customers) For one sign, it was 115 000 peso !More
