Bring the family and friends down to Kabuto Japanese Restaurant in Goodlettsville, TN. Encircle a sizzling Hibachi table to watch your chef put on a memorable high-energy culinary show. Your food is prepared in front of you by one of a team of young, enthusiastic and extremely skilled chefs. This area Nashville Japanese restaurant prepares some of the finest Sushi with a splendid lunch & dinner menu.

This is the best hibachi food hands down, I love this place so much. Me & my husband go here at least once a week. My favorite cook is marvin, He’s the best hands down. Very nice & he always has a good attitude no matter how busy they are. I love kabutos!


I have traveled all around and have tried various different hibachi restaurants but every time I leave disappointed because none of them stand up to Kabuto’s I’ve been coming in for several years now and I never leave disappointed keep up the awesome work.
