I recommend any of the combination entrees. All the Chefs have their own specialty acts during the preparation of the meals. Try their specialty drinks to accompany your meal you won't... More

Started in the sushi bar. They have a wonderful selection of sushi. Then went to the other side for dinner. Love watching them cook in front of me. Great place to bring kids. Will go back soon.

The House Of Kobe was an excellent experience from the waitress to the chef. We brought our 5 kids for the first time and they didn't disappoint. The atmosphere was great, chef was entertaining and food superb. I highly recommend this experience.

Of you love a good Japanese steak house with a sushi bar available this is a great place to visit. The lunch menu has great prices and the dinner menu is very well priced and a lot of food, lunch or dinner for leftovers.

Good: shrimp & salmon. Chicken had grissle. Too much food. One entree made leftovers for 2 meals. Suggestion: Charge less and make entrees smaller. Nice bathrooms.

This is a fun restaurant where you can watch the chef cook in front of you. Steak, seafood or chicken with vegetables and fried rice...dinner includes soup, salad and dessert. The sodium content is super high and we asked to lessen it. Unless you have a table of 8 or 12 be prepared to sit with others. As for the... More

Ate here on a Sunday afternoon with my wife, son, and daughter during a shopping trip. We had a very pleasant experience and everything was very delicious and well prepared. We tried several items and all shared amongst ourselves. Our server was very knowledgeable and did a fantastic job recommending a couple of sushi rolls for us. I was very... More
