Kabuki Japanese Restaurant


Kabuki Japanese Restaurant

The expansive Town Square shopping area located a short drive down Las Vegas Blvd. from the Strip is home to some mighty fine upscale shopping (including the Whole Foods Market seen on the Las Vegas Top Chef season). It’s no surprise that it would also feature some interesting dining. On a recent Wednesday evening we had an opportunity to dine at one of the restaurants that we somehow missed on previous visits to Town Square.

Arriving prior to the dinner rush hour we had an opportunity to enjoy our comfortable surroundings with some excellent house sake and a bowl of edamame while perusing the menu and the extensive sushi list. In addition to  all the expected traditional sushi offerings was a tempting list of intriguing specialty rolls. We started our meal with an assortment of sushi and couldn’t resist the Gyoza dumplings. Both were outstanding. The sushi was top quality; the dumplings were plump, well seasoned and beautifully presented in an addicting citrus spiked sauce.

Our main courses, Tonkatso ($11.95) and Beef Teriyaki ($11.95) were both winners. Both started with a comforting miso soup and included simple but nicely dressed and presented salads. Both of the main courses are standard offerings in most Japanese restaurants and can be dismal when poorly executed. Not the case here. The beef, ordered medium arrived exactly as ordered. Tender pieces of beef on a tasty pool of teriyaki sauce were a winner. The Tonkatsu, a generous boneless pork cutlet breaded in crispy panko breadcrumbs was crispy, juicy and cooked to perfection.

There wasn’t a missed beat anywhere throughout our dinner. Service was impeccable; friendly and attentive. Judging on the line waiting to be seated as we left it was obvious that Kabuki is no longer a well kept secret. We plan a return visit very soon to make it a full out sushi evening at the one of the nicest looking sushi bars we’ve seen in Vegas. We look forward to exploring that seriously impressive sake list as well (especially the sparkling sake!)

  1. This place is now definitely on our list for the next Las Vegas trip. Actually, I can hardly wait!

  2. Oh my goodness… I actually go to Kabuki quite often here in California! It’s actually pretty decent sushi. Speaking of Las Vegas, I’m headed there this weekend for a birthday event! Any advice on where we can take the birthday boy? Thanks!
