Based on prior reviews, we went expecting great food. It was even better than we had imagined. The only surprise was the bill. You rarely find this level of food, service and atmosphere for a moderate price. We will be back often.

Good lunch menu or you can order off the normal menu. Lunch menu has very good selection. Plenty for vegans as well.

We are leisurely diners but after... More

Food was very good. Excellent service, very helpful and noted that the soy sauce on the table is gluten-free which is helpful for us because I usually need to bring a bottle since my husband has celiac disease. Only problem for us was that is was too noisy and we couldn't hear each other, so not great for us for... More

I've been here about five times over the last seven months and it's consistently good. Very well run, excellent front of the house management. Very attentive wait staff. The decor is lovely with marvelous textures wrapping around the establishment. Each area feels special and although it's busy you don't get that loud over bearing pushing feeling you get from busy...

It's a fine Japanese restaurant, however the C/P value isn't high to me. May only go for special events.

We used to go to Kata Robata all the time when we lived in Houston. It's consistently on of the best sushi places in Houston, if you are looking for upscale, fancy and top quality. We ducked in for a quick plate...and we loved it. Happy trails!

Having recently visit Japan, was looking for good place with authentic food. Kata is both. Visited here for lunch. Had a Bento box with sahsimi. My colleague had noodle dish with chicken. The place was packed and had to wait even at 1 PM. Once seated, service was very good. Quality of food was excellent and up to Japanese standards.

Relatively nice atmosphere given that it's in a strip mall. High marks for creative menu, high marks for helpfulness of server. Just slightly better than average rolls. Great bar.
