We really like Kubo's. The fish is always fresh, the service is usually very good. But we just found out that tonight is the last night this location in Rice Village will be open. They are closing with no definitive plans to reopen. Ugh.

I used to love this place. The sushi is usually very good. Lately, the place looks so dirty. You can see so much dirtiness on the wood, wall and the bathroom. This concerns me, especially when you are preparing sushi. Need to find a new...More

This is our favorite place for sushi. It is always good. Periodically, they have very unique seasonal specials. Kid friendly. They have had some recent turnover in the wait staff and the service has been a bit frustrating...but the sushi is still very good.

We have dined here many times over the last ten years. Kubo’s is a traditional style sushi bar. We always go for happy hour and sit at the sushi bar for reduced food, beer and sake prices. The HH salmon sampler and Shaggy Dog roll...More

We were here this evening to enjoy a dear friend's birthday party. I feel as if they rolled out the red carpet and treated us so special. The wine selection was fabulous and we were able to share rolls that were fresh and delicious. They...More

Most other sushi places eg Miyako & Osako have equally good fusion sushi but they can't beat Kubo on the traditional sushi. Excellent & good value weekday bento boxes. They used to have only one type of bento box for lunch each weekday but now...More

This little gem is located in the university district near Rice and the Medical District in Houston. Mid afternoon and I was alone. Ordered the sashimi, salmon and tuna, plus one of their specialty rolls. Fresh, delicious and filling. Would definitely go back.

Creative and extensive menu, good service, and clean restaurant. Both the raw and cooked options were tasty! It was a bit pricey, even during happy hour. Nice location in Rice Village, although parking can be somewhat of a pain.

When I found this place on TripAdvisor, I thought that the good comments were overstated, but still I decided to give it a try. Well, this place really is great. I noticed many Japanese customers in the restaurant. The food was awesome, in particular the...More
