Japanese Restaurant: Kabuki As you walk into a Japanese restaurant what are some of the things that really stick out to you? Maybe the cultural decorations? Or perhaps the strong aroma of sushi and other great Japanese foods being prepared in the kitchen? Or maybe even some fun live entertainment? Whatever a certain Japanese restaurant has to offer, it should provide the customers with complete satisfaction. Kabuki Japanese restaurant does an adequate job of giving the customers a true feel for a Japanese like environment. Kabuki is a Japanese restaurant that is located on Riverpark, Boulevard in Oxnard, California in the new shopping center known by many now as “The Collection”. This food chain has been around since 1991 and it has continued to grow in the western United States. As you walk into the restaurant you will notice a very modern feel to the place with a few chandeliers and the large glass windows spread throughout the restaurant. Along with the restaurant being modern it also has some traditional Japanese touches such as the art, the classic Japanese style lamps, the fire, and even the music playing. The seating of the restaurant is in a fashion of multiple tables lined up evenly and it has a long bar table in the back for those twenty one and over. There is also a patio area to the left with outdoor heaters that has enough space to fit about forty people. The restaurant also tends to be quite busy during the late afternoon hours as most people will find themselves waiting anywhere from two minutes to even one hour or more to be seated at their appropriate table, depending on the size of the group. A Japanese restaurant should offer the customers with delicious and quality Japanese food to provide them with a true feel for a Japanese like environment. Kabuki restaurant provides…...

Restaurant Methodology

...Introduction Restaurants are a notoriously difficult business to own or operate. Not only is it a relatively capital and employee-intensive business, restaurants are also highly regulated, low margin and in most cases have a plethora of competition to deal with. A successful restaurant can make a lot of money for the owner and a lot of prestige comes with being associated with a popular restaurant. While the food and atmosphere of a restaurant are obviously critical factors--for all segments with the possible exception of fine dining--the presentation of the menu, pricing points and other marketing considerations are equally important. One of the main objectives of a restaurant is to ensure customer satisfaction and build a repeat-customer base. According to research by the National Restaurant Association, more than half of American adults (52 percent) said they would be more likely to patronize the same restaurant if it offered a customer loyalty and reward program. Other goals of this objective include enticing regular customers to come back more often as well as introducing the restaurant to new customers. Restaurants that give frequent diner cards (such as buy 10 meals and receive the 11th meal free) typically incorporate this objective in their overall marketing plans. Objective of the study This research was done mainly to enhance the restaurant promotion and branding. Restaurant marketing is both an art and a science that is shrouded in mystery for far too many......

Restaurant Review

...Review of China Buffet Restaurant I am a food lover, and I enjoyed eating in a Chinese restaurant. I tried different restaurants in our place, but what interests me most is the China Buffet Restaurant. China Buffet is located at Madison Avenue at the heart of Mankato, one of the biggest cities in Minnesota. The restaurant has a seating capacity of approximately 100 people. They have several food stations. Although the name China Buffet speaks for itself, their food stations consist of American, Italian, and Japanese food. The owner purposely includes a variety of food because of competition. I enjoyed eating at China Buffet because of its affordability, delicious food, and the beautiful setting. The price of their buffet is $10 per person, and it includes beverages. There are a variety of salads in their salad station: fruit, vegetable, and seafood. Their main meal is composed of chicken, pork, beef, and fish. For dessert, they serve ice cream, cookies, and different kinds of cakes. For their beverages, they serve soda, milk, juice, and chocolate milk, but tea is my favorite. The food is excellent so it’s well worth the price. China Buffet’s food is excellent and healthy. They have food stations for meat lovers and vegetarians. Their newly-opened sushi and hibachi bar is the restaurant’s crowning glory. Sushi and California maki is my starter with matching wasabi sauce. I tried their hibachi too, but it fills me up right away. The seafood station is...

Restaurant Review

...Zhu December 8, 2011 A Memorable Trip to a Chinese Restaurant Last Friday, my classmates and I went to a Chinese restaurant named Spicy House to have a “Food Party.” Our professor Susan also joined us to experience this unique trip. It was a sunny day, which brought everyone a good mood. Our group got the destination at around 12 noon, and Susan, together with some of the classmates, was already there. Once I stepped into Spicy House, I was totally astonished by the decoration of the restaurant and couldn’t help asking myself, “Am I in still in America?” The whole red ceiling was separated into several equal squares, each with a small dragon right in the middle. Two silk Hebao, a traditional Chinese handicraft which are usually made on Dragon Day, was hanging on both edges of the door inside the restaurant. On the side of the door, there was a Chinese ink painting hanging on the wall, delineating a view of four running horses. There was also a large mirror in the opposite wall of the door, reflecting the entire restaurant in it. I have to say that this amazing place created such a familiar feeling for all of the Chinese guests that we got excited at once. There were some other Chinese people who were not in our group sitting at other tables and enjoying their meals. All the waitresses and even the boss were Chinese, so we could speak Mandarin to them if we had any need. Surprisingly, even if I assumed that this restaurant should supply only spicy food in terms of its......

Kabuki Music

...enlightening. Sachiyo Ito and Company was founded in 1981, and is a non-profit organization devoted to establish a link between East and West though expressive and aesthetic performances. Sadly, I have never experienced a Japanese dance performance before, or any dance performance as authentic as Sachiyo Ito and Company presented. Kabuki developed its unique characteristics in 1603, and was founded by a female, Izumo Okuni. It has been a pleasure enjoyed by the people of Japan for just about 400 years. Kabuki is a category of Japanese musical that incorporates dancing, music, and acting. As explained by Sachiyo Ito, the word Kabuki can be broken down in the Japanese language, “ka” meaning to “music” or “song”, “bu” meaning “dance”, and “ki” meaning “acting skill”. Therefore, Kabuki denotes the skill of song dance and acting. All three of these elements were combined to produce Kabuki theatrical performance. Although, it became applied in a more limited way—to represent a distinct type of Japanese performance. Originally an art performed by women, and passed down from generation to generation. Then, in 1629 the Tokugawa shogunate banned women from Kabuki performance, in an attempt to preserve social integrity. The shogunate military government perceived the female performances as being too sensual and risqué, causing chaos amongst the audience. After that, young men in their teens were to perform the traditionally female parts, but that as well became prohibited. In......

Types of Restaurants

...Types of Restaurants Definitions and Examples of Restaurant Concepts By Lorri Mealey, About.com Guide Today there are many different types of restaurants, from fast food to family casual. Here is a brief overview of some of the more popular restaurant concepts. Fast Food Restaurant 
Fast food is the most familiar restaurant to most people. Chains like McDonalds and Burger King became popular in the 1950s, and helped spawn countless other concepts like Taco Bell, KFC and In&Out Burger. Fast food service attracted customers for its speed and convenience. Fast food restaurants are typically chains. If you are thinking of opening a fast food franchise, keep in mind that the initial costs of franchising are more expensive than opening an independent restaurant. Fast Casual Dining
This is one of the biggest trends right now. Fast casual is slightly more upscale than fast food. Fast casual restaurants offer disposable dishes and flatware, but their food tends to be presented as more upscale, such as gourmet breads and organic ingredients. Open kitchens are popular with fast casual chains, where customers can see their food being prepared. Boston Market is classified as fast casual. Café
A café is a restaurant that does not offer table service. Customers order their food from a counter and serve themselves. A café menu traditionally offers things such as coffee, espresso, pastries and sandwiches. Cafes originated in Europe and are strongly associated with France. They are known......
