Kobe An is a family owned and operated business. We were established in 1979 by Kimie Loeffler. She was inspired to open a Japanese restaurant here in Colorado because she missed the food of her home town Kobe Japan. We pride ourselves on serving the freshest fish and a variety of authentic Japanese cuisine. We have private tatami rooms that can accommodate small parties up to 8 people, and also a large party room for up to 33 people. If you are looking for a Japanese restaurant that has character and the feel of Japan, look no further. Hope to see you soon.
