Kabuto was recommended to us by a friend who lives in the neighborhood. The tiny restaurant with its unassuming facade and decor is a gem. We ordered the Omakase menu. I agree with another reviewer that the order of the dishes seemed out of order,...More

We came to this restaurant for dinner because of the reviews. Sorry this is one of the worst sushi restaurants i have ever been to. If you are a seasoned sushi eater don't go there. First of all the place is dirty, second the employees...More
