“Strange place, unhelpful staff”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

We stopped on a Saturday for lunch. We were seated at the hibachi table. The restaurant has a large menu, with hibachi items, items from their kitchen, sushi and korean bbq. If you are seated at the hibachi table, you are not allowed to get things from the other menu. After we were seated and served our drinks, we were told they don't have lunch on Saturday. This would have been really helpful to know before we were seated and before we had ordered drinks. We paid our tab and left. I love hibachi, but there are certainly other placees with more reasonable prices and friendlier staff to patronize

“Entertaining and quite good food”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

The last time we went to Kobe, it was because our grandchildren (11 and 13) had requested it. They enjoyed the food and having the meal prepared in front of them. We all had the scallop dinner. Some chefs we have had at Kobe and other similar restaurants have been better but the food was good.

“Need to go once and don't be in a hurry.”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Have been here a few times food is ok, slow to get a table. If you get the right Chief it’s lot’s of fun. Not sure I would suggest children. If you want to talk within a large group, forget it. Grill is in the middle of the table. Although you can been entertained watching them cook in front of you. Most meals around $30 not including drinks. Sometimes you can find a coupon.

“Come for Lunch for much better value”
Reviewed 8 December 2012

I've come to this restaurant for dinner several times, but just recently came for lunch. For much better deal and you get pretty much the same amount of food (maybe less protein). Still really good quality food prepared fresh, but for better value for your money.

“Fun But Pricey”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

If you just want a steak go elsewhere but if you want to combine entertainment and good eating - this is great. Keep in mind - your paying for both. It is a little pricey but if you don't go first class, your heirs will!
