Excellent sushi at Kabuki, a restaurant hidden on the 2nd floor of a courtyard at 485 Alisal Rd #285, Solvang, CA 93463. Offers several tasty nori rolls I haven't found in other Japanese restaurants.

Check the specials board, but everything is good. The Godzilla roll is wonderful! Japanese beer and some local wines. Service can be slow, but worth the wait.
