My husband and I had dinner at Kabuki last night. The service by Juan and Marisol was exemplary. The food was ok- not memorable. We had a large Saporro and cold unfiltered sake- both were great. We also had yellowtail sashimi, which was awesome. The "Jazzy" roll was loosely rolled and fell apart when we ate it. The fresh water... More

Sadly there isn't another sushi place in Solvang. BUT there is one in Buellton. I'm not a fan of Kabuki. It's been around a while, moved around too. The menu changes a lot so things I like aren't available. The atmosphere is very weird. It's not in any way Japanese like inside. Just white walls, white table cloths. Kind of... More

The food is very good, but staff does not follow ordering instruction as in how I want my salad served on a separate plate (they put the salad on the main dish plate) I know I sound petty, I wish they had a better sasami menu

The place was busy (friday night) but somehow we got a table. The waitress took our drink orders right away but then it was very slow to get the food... More

We tried it once, and liked it so much, we returned there on our next visit. Get there between 5 PM and 6:30 PM for their "happy hour" where their drinks and select appetizers are very inexpensive. We had saki, california roll, teriyaki chicken, steak and salmon. All very good, all reasonably priced. Service is great, nice atmosphere, and most... More

This restaurant is in the tourist town of Solvang Ca. This is the Danish "capital" of America. We have lived in this area 23 years. This was the first time we have had a meal here. Go figure! It is directly across the street from the formal outdoor Theaterfest. Ideal for a before show meal. Now the food. Shin Kuboyama... More
