A word from Kobe Japanese Steak House-Kissimmee
Kobe Japanese Steakhouse specializes in Teppanyaki or Hibachi cooking. Guests will delight as a personal chef prepares succulent steak, chicken, and seafood dishes according to the ancient Hibachi style of food preparation. While the preparation method is traditional, each chef brings their own sense of humor and spontaneity to the table. All entrees are prepared at your table by Teppan Chefs in a display of flashing knives and exotic aromas. Every meal is a culinary and performance delight that you are sure to enjoy.

All Teppanyaki Entrees include our Japanese Clear Onion Soup, Crisp Green Salad, Fresh Oriental Vegetables, Grilled Noodles, and Fried Rice.

Diner Reviews
  • "We were surprised to find out there was an early bird special (pleasant surprise!). All went well up to this point. Chef was fantastic! Service was great. Then the bill came. I gave the server a $50.00 Visa gift card to use. She ran it through and it declined. I told her to try again. She did and it declined. I now had eye rolling and attitude from the server. I told her to ask a manager for assistance. Of course the manager was able to help. I did not receive an apology or anything from the server. Her tip went down and I regret not lowering it more but they split it with the chef. My kids love the place and we would go back, especially for the early bird pricing."

  • "Quantity not quality. Too much rice AND noodles AND potato. Never seen so much accompanying main courses. Meat (sirloin?) very tough."

  • "The food at the restaurant was plentiful. We had so much that we took leftovers home. Everything was super fresh. This was by far, the best hibachi restaurant I have been too"

  • "I took my wife and three boys to Kobe's while on vacation near Orlando for a week. We ate out everyday and this was by FAR the best dinner we had. We found this place in Chandler, Arizona originally and this place took it up a notch. Great show, food was amazing ( steak and chicken with an extra side of fried rice like always) good sake shot for the birthday and they sang happy birthday and my kids loved the cupcake. Definitely stop by if you can! The coy fish they had in the waiting area made my kids happy and entertained."

  • "Kobe is everything you would expect in a Japanese hibachi grill. It was very busy, so reservations are a must. The food and service were excellent!"

  • "Kobe Japanese steakhouse is our absolute favorite restaurant! Atmosphere is fun and energetic - the staff are very accommodating to likes and dislikes to make the dining experience even more pleasurable. Food is excellent and no one leaves there hungry. We always have a to go box - and is great for lunch the next day. Great value for the price. Will visit again and again. They have a great rewards program as well. "

  • "If you like hibachi with your butter, then you won't be disappointed. I honestly couldn't believe the amount of butter slathered on absolutely everything. It's no wonder my stomach started gurgling in disapproval soon after we left. On the flip side, the vegetables were nice and fresh, the meat all good - but it would have been better if they weren't coated in butter. I honestly think the noodles are an afterthought & I didn't think the noodles were necessary. The "fried rice" was simply rice, fried with butter, soy sauce and no vegetables. I honestly can't remember the chef using any seasoning (aside from butter, and more butter). Not what I was expecting. At least the sushi was good. "

  • "The restaurant, food and service were all good. The problem was getting seated. I had requested a table in the less popular dining room instead of at the Teppanyaki Grill. When I arrived there was not a single table in the dining room occupied. I was given a wait time of 5 to 10 minutes. As I waited for what turned out to be 30 minutes I saw several other parties come in without a reservation and since they requested a table in the dining room they were seated immediately. I finally asked a different host for a table in the dining room and didn't mention the reservation. We were seated immediately."

  • "I always enjoyed dining at Kobe's because I know I will always receive great service & food. My last current visit was probably my favorite so far because our chef was very engaging to the customers. He kept calling me his son while he was cooking. It was a joke a course, but this added fun while watching him cook our food. The other customers thought it was funny. The chef made some very humorous jokes from random things. For example, he said, "The vegetables are from Wal-Mart because Wal-Mart has everyday low prices." The servers are very efficient to clear out dishes & refill your drinks. If you are looking for an entertainment dinner at reasonable prices, then head on over to Kobe's today!!"

  • "We chose Kobe because it was close to Epcot and offered teppanyaki. It was a fabulous experience for our group of 5. The food was abundant, fresh and superbly prepared by our very entertaining cook, Kenny, who put on a great show. The restaurant could use a bit of updating but they should keep their winning formula for food and fun. Penny was also a great server. Efficient and attentive."

  • "We dine here every time we are in town. It has become a family tradition. The littlest kids to the biggest "kids" all have a great time. The chefs are a treat to watch -- some are better than others but all are fun and the food is wonderful and plentiful! You will not go away hungry from here!"

  • "We used open table for a reservation and when we arrived, we were told there was an additional 90 minute wait. They do not use open table to properly set reservations so unless you are good with that, expect to wait 60 - 90 minutes when it is busy. We stayed for an hour and when we were told it was still another 30 minutes, we ended up leaving. We did have a few drinks and an appetizer to attempt to pass the time, however the wait was too long and we ended up leaving before having dinner."

  • "We were frustrated and disappointed with our visit. Our reservations were at 7:15 pm, we were told when we arrived that there would be a 15 to 20 minute wait, but we were not seated until a full hour after our reservation time. When we were seated, the service was adequate but nothing special. Our chef did the bare minimum in terms of food preparation entertainment. In addition, he didn't speak much English and so compensated by repeating over and over again "too much sake" which might have been a joke appropriate for adults but we also had 10-16 year olds at the table. The food was fresh and prepared well, but given our other disappointments it did not save the meal experience for us."

  • "We had reservations (made through open table). So we were there, right in time for our reservation. We were told that it would take another couple of minutes. After having heard that for about 6 times in 70 minutes we were done and left."

  • "Always a good time. My kids like the "show" that comes with dinner in the hibachi dining. The food is tasty, too. They have a koi pond that the kids can feed the fish. The service is wonderful. They know how to handle guests with allergies. The white sauce is the best!!! If you have a little one that is scared of fire, be prepared. My littlest one (age 3) is scared and hides during that part. Our chef was great about telling us when the fire was coming so she could be prepared. All in all, we look forward to our next visit."

  • "There was too much soy and oil in the food. Also the fried rice had too many onions. The show was good but other than that not acceptable. Also, we had to wait a long time for our table. We realized they were waiting for walk-ins to fill up the table so we were seated 45 minutes after our reservation time."

  • "I adore Japanese steak houses for the cool show while having your food grilled. However, when you don't sit for the show you will want the food and the prices to be just as good. Kobe did not disappoint. The portions were a good size. The taste was up to par. Be sure to save room for dessert. The fried cheesecake was awesome."

  • "We were looking for a restaurant while on vacation on what we expected to be a busy Saturday evening. We went onto opentable in the afternoon to see what was available and saw that Kobe was available at the time we wanted. Upon arrival they had our reservation and told us to wait 10 min. 55 minutes later they finally seated my irritated children. While waiting i went on opentable to see what it said about the current availability and showed reservations available in 15 min despite the 10+ people waiting. Its obvious they dont update their opentable profile and i wouldnt have selected this place if i knew the real wait time. Food was decent and chef was good but my now tired kids made the experience poor."

  • "Went to Kobe Steakhouse with three kids ages ranging from four to sixteen and there was something for everyone. For the adults they have some tasty specialty drinks (I liked the Kobe Sangria which I needed a few of after a day at Disney). For the younger kids the hibachi show is always a winner and the chef did a great job at that. They also loved the coy pond in the waiting area. The bonus was the food was also very good! The steak and the sushi were all well prepared and the prices were pretty reasonable. The staff was very friendly as well. All in all it was a very good experience and I will definitely go back when I visit Orlando again."
