Kabuki Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Larger than a typical neighborhood sushi bar, this branch of the burgeoning Southern California-based chain is a slick, sprawling eatery in the heart of Old Pasadena, with a sidewalk patio ideal for people-watching. Warm wood and brick surfaces are accented with colorful kabuki theater-inspired art, creating a hip, bustling vibe for the masses of California roll-eating patrons who stop in after a movie or before hitting the local boutiques. Kabuki has always been popular for selection and value, attributes that cannot be overlooked. The company has also made a concerted effort to upgrade the menu with better-quality sushi and specialties like curry shrimp and miso-glazed black cod. So just sit back and enjoy some tuna tartare, a spicy tuna crunch roll, or a big boat filled with tempura, barbecue ribs, gyoza and a California roll, washing it all down with a bottle of saké or a couple of pineapple mojitos. Desserts include banana tempura with caramel sauce and ice cream.
