Kabuki Japanese Restaurant describes itself as a "casual dining restaurant." However, there's nothing casual about the food.
The chain, which in the fall opened its 13th location in the Bridgeport Marketplace center in Valencia, offers fresh sushi and sashimi as well as innovative gourmet dishes.

The "signature" of Kabuki is the restaurant's "boats."

The "Love Boat" dinner includes chicken teriyaki, barbecue beef ribs, shrimp and vegetable tempura, broiled mussels, California Roll, seasonal fruit and Gyoza dumplings. At $17.95 per person this dish gives you a little taste of many delightful dishes.

The "Dream Boat" ($19.95 per person) includes everything on the "Love Boat" and adds beef teriyaki to the mix.

If you like sushi then Kabuki offers everything from tuna ($3.95) to flying fish egg ($3.95). The extensive selection includes nearly every type of sushi your heart can desire: Mackerel ($3.50), squid ($3.50), snapper ($3.50) and more.

Rolls include spicy tuna roll ($4.75), salmon skin roll ($3.95), crab roll ($3.95), cucumber sea eel roll ($4.50) and many more.

Among the gourmet dinners are curry shrimp ($12.95), Lake Michigan white fish ($14.95), miso marinated black cod ($15.95) and seared tuna tataki ($14.95).

Kabuki is also open for lunch and offers a nice variety of lunch specials.

Try tonkatsu, breaded pork loin, lightly fried and served with Kabuki's own special tonkatsu sauce ($8.95). Beef ($8.95) and chicken ($7.95) teriyaki, salmon ($8.95) teriyaki or beef sukiyaki ($9.95) are other tasty lunch options.

The bar includes wonderfully inventive cocktails including the Tokyo mojito made Tokyo-style with sake and soju. This marvelous mojito can be ordered in cucumber, grapefruit or lychee ($7.95).

Kabuki even boasts its own sake "sommelier" Yuji Matsumoto. Matsumoto has crafted several sake-inspired cocktails including the "saketini." This exotic Japanese martini is available in creamy peach, lychee or yuzu flavors.

No meal is complete without dessert and Kabuki offers the traditional green tea and red bean ice cream as well as clever twists, like tempura ice cream. This deep-fried ice cream treat is available in green tea, red bean, coffee or vanilla ($5.95). Banana tempura ($5.95) includes lightly fried pieces of banana with a carmel sauce and vanilla ice cream.
