Great prices on happy hour drinks and appetizers at the bar until 6:00 p.m. I think I had 3 craft beers and two appetizers and it was around $13. The next meal we ate was at the grill--the chef was much more accomplished than the first time I ate here. We had a nice dinner for four and enjoyed the... More

After traveling these last few years, I realize how difficult it is to find even good sushi. The real surprise is to find not only good but outstanding sushi in the old west. The service is superb and the wait staff polite. We only had sushi here once before and that was at dinner, but it was so delicious that... More

I was impressed, this place had quality sushi, and I enjoyed it. I ordered the tuna tartare, and that was not what I expected, it could be improved- in terms of processing the tuna and flavoring, as it was very bland, but the eel roll I ordered was delicious, and fresh. I will eat here again. I liked the side... More

If you like sushi, good place to go. I was not impressed with menu selection but I also do not care for fish. Menu seemed a little confusing and not a wide selection. Food was average.

My significant other and I went for a late dinner last Saturday night. Ordered an appetizer which I can't remember the name and it was really good. We followed it with a king crab roll which I would highly recommend. I ordered the teriyaki ribeye which was a bit disappointing mostly because it had quite a bit of fat and... More

Omg, just moved to Bismarck from a big city on the east coast. I was worried I might not have access to fresh sushi like I had in New England. Wow was I surprised!!

What an amazing place! A very modern yet traditional Japanese steakhouse. We were greeted promptly and offered a cocktail while we waited for our table. I've been to quite a few hibachi/Japanese steakhouse types but this blows all the others out of the water! What a cool place! Food was very innovative. Had a vast selection of sushi styles and...

Went to Kobe's this evening with my daughter on a "date". Got seated and waited for an hour before we saw the chef. We ordered an appetizer- right after we were seated- and didn't get that until halfway through our meal(about 85-90 minutes after we ordered it). Kobe's tried, a little, to make up for the POOR service by not... More

We're quite disappointed that this happened. We always do our best to make sure that we get all of the orders out in a timely fashion, but sometimes mistakes do occur, which doesn't excuse us from the extended wait. It's rare that this happens in our restaurant, and we're sorry that it did. Best, Kiky - General Manager More

Whether you're joining us for lunch with co-workers, dinner with the family or a special bachelorette party, there's something here for everyone to enjoy.
