- I love this place and come here often. I especially love happy hour because they've developed a menu full of great choices for discounted prices up to half off Monday-Friday 3pm - 6pm (excluding holidays). One of my favorite salads in the world is the Spicy Tuna Salad, the spring mix is fresh and crisp, the tuna has the right amount of spice and I wish I knew the recipe for the dressing because I would drizzle it on everything. The Yellowtail and Salmon were good, I've had better in the area. On the whole their fish is usually fresh, it ranges from being a little tough to melting in your mouth, so I guess it depends on which day you go and at what time. I've always had a pleasant sushi experience here. The Philly Roll is quickly becoming a "go-to" roll whenever I go out for sushi. It's great for sushi beginners and longtime lovers alike. The nice thing about Kubuki's Philly Roll is that it's small and does not overdo it with the cream cheese. Little roll bites make it perfect for sharing. Last, but not least, the Inari Sushi (aka bean curd). I always eat it last because it tastes sweet at the end of the meal. The perfect finish.
- Customer service could use some work. Some waitresses are really on the ball and it's a fantastic juggling act, others just seem to be confused and run around like chickens with their heads cut off. Sometimes you wait, whether or not it's worth it is your call, it never really bugs me, just be weary of special orders, it may be a while but at least you have a free bowl of edemame in the meantime.
- Overall: 2 FORKS
