Show was good, the chef had some new skills we hadn't seen at Tepanyaki before. Was very busy but they still squeezed us in! Food was divine, especially loved the wasabi sauce to go with the meat from the BBQ.

We always visit here at least twice while we are here in Maui. The food is very good and consistent quality. We really enjoy the Tappen cooking. The shrimp, filet, and opakapaka are our favorite. I also really enjoyed the garlic fried rice as well....More

I'm disappointed our chef wasn't as funny as the others in the past. We still had fun regardless of the ridiculous wait. Reservation was at 7 and we didn't get sat until 745!!! But in the meantime we had good drinks and the best sushi...More

Celebrated a birthday. Had a great time with the chef. He made us feel special and the food was delicious. Everyone had something different so we could share. Cocktails were weak though.

Enjoy the exciting, ancient art of teppanyaki cooking at the restaurant voted number 1 Japanese restaurant on Maui. Teppanyaki is derived from "teppan" which means iron plate and "yaki" which means grilled. At Kobe, it is delivered with the style and grace of a Japanese country inn. Blend in the gentle aloha of Hawaii, you will experience an evening where terrific food and entertainment are the perfect combination. After a delicious bowl of shabu-shabu soup, your teppan chef will begin to cook up an entrée of dishes, right in front of you, cooking it to tasty perfection, while watching him do the "flaming onion volcano", one of their many culinary tricks. Another favorite at Kobe is to sit in the sunken sushi bar and order one of uncle Oku's fabulous daily specials and enjoy watching the chefs masterfully create their delicious sushi. Oku prides himself on the high quality of fresh fish he chooses from local vendors. Approximately 95% of Oku's fish comes from Hawaii, and the balance of his menu consists of exotic items imported from Japan. The restaurant décor features many historical ornaments and artifacts to provide an authentic feel of Japan, the mother country. Kobe Japanese Steak House & Oku's Sushi Bar delights visiting guests and Island locals alike. Come and join us for a great meal today!
