    • I really enjoyed this place! It was packed when I got there just after 6pm because happy hour had just ended. The food is great and the prices are pretty reasonable. I had the Gyoza Dumplings, Sashimi Salad, Seaweed Salad, California Roll and Saki. The Saki was spot on! For dessert I had the green tea ice cream in fried dough and it was... More

    All You Need to Know About Wasabi

    Last updated 5 years ago

    If you are getting ready for your first sushi restaurant experience, you can prepare by getting familiar with a few sushi essentials. Start by learning more about sushi, sashimi, and rolls, as well as common additions like soy sauce and edamame. Then, learn everything you need to know about wasabi from this guide:

    Wasabi is a plant that is commonly found in many classic Japanese dishes. You’ll also see it used as a condiment or served alongside many Japanese meals. This unique plant is typically grown in Japan and can be found near small bodies of water. A grinding technique is used to release the powerfully spicy flavor of the wasabi. This spicy flavor is often compared to that found in horseradish. In fact, western wasabi, which is commonly served in American sushi restaurants, is made with a combination of mustard, horseradish, and food coloring. This type of wasabi is served because true Japanese wasabi is often difficult to keep in regular supply.

    Both western wasabi and Japanese wasabi offer a distinctive flavor that provides an essential and unmistakable component in Japanese cuisine. Wasabi is a truly unique ingredient because it enhances flavor, adds spice, and presents a visually appetizing and intriguing green color. Nigiri and sushi rolls both feature wasabi alongside other delectable ingredients. Wasabi is spread between the rice and fish in nigiri, and is also often found rolled in between fish, rice, and vegetables in sushi rolls. You can also use chopsticks to place a small drop of wasabi on top of orders of sashimi.

    You can test out different wasabi combinations when you join us for lunch, happy hour, or dinner here at Kabuki! We offer a variety of delicious sushi and sashimi, including favorites like tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and shrimp. We also offer an assortment of tasty sushi rolls, such as the California roll, the avocado roll, and the specialty Vegas roll.

    • Have been coming here nearly every Friday since we moved here in August.  Being from Seattle and having traveled to Japan, I'd have to say...pretty good sushi especially in the desert.  The staff is great, service is quick, and prices are reasonable.  We usually get the tempura, and I'll have 1 sushi order and I am stuffed....

    Don't Love Sushi? A Guide to Teriyaki and Tempura Cooking

    Last updated 6 years ago

    Sushi is a favorite among many Japanese restaurant guests—but not everyone loves this traditional Japanese treat! You don’t have to go hungry when you dine at one of the many wonderful Kabuki restaurants, because we offer a variety of great teriyaki and tempura options:


    • This term refers to both the style of cooking used as well as the sauce used to enhance the flavors of various types of meat and fish. Teriyaki is a popular style in Japanese cuisine, providing the perfect alternative for any diners who aren’t interested in trying sushi, sashimi, or rolls. Different types of meat and fish, such as beef, chicken, and salmon, are marinated in a teriyaki sweet soy sauce and then are either grilled or broiled. Here at Kabuki, you can find a variety of delicious teriyaki options to try on our popular Japanese menu. This includes classics like chicken, beef, or salmon teriyaki, as well as an assortment of combination plates and Boat entrée specials.


    • This term refers to a special final step in the cooking process that is used to transform a number of classic and popular dishes. Tempura options are lightly-battered and deep fried after being prepared. Ingredients such as fresh fish and vegetables can be enhanced and provide a better blend of flavors after being deep-fried tempura style. Unlike other frying styles, tempura-style frying gives foods a lighter taste and flavor, and does not produce the same grease that other fried foods may produce. Here at Kabuki, you can try our tasty shrimp and vegetable tempura or one of our combinations, such as chicken teriyaki with shrimp and vegetable tempura or tonkatsu with shrimp and vegetable tempura.

    You can enjoy many more delicious teriyaki or tempura dishes when you eat at one of of Kabuki’s many great locations. Check out our website to start learning more about our Japanese restaurant and fabulous menu!
