Kobe An has been serving the Denver area delicious sushi and authentic Japanese cuisine since 1979. We were located in Lakewood for 35 years and we just relocated to Cherry Creek. Our owner, Kimie, came to America from Kobe, Japan to serve traditional as well as today's modern food that is popular in Japan. All of our entrees come from and are inspired by her family’s recipes. We have tatami rooms for an authentic Japanese experience. Our tatami rooms are a unique and fun way to enjoy your authentic Japanese cuisine. Menu modifications are happily accommodated.

Great place for Shabu Shabu. We had the Kobe Rib Eye and it was tender and melts in your mouth. The included vegetables were also numerous and very fresh.

We took a couple of big plates with a variety of food. They tasted good overall but we noticed that most of the dishes were pre-made it and just re-heated before serving.
The service was excellent, the place is pretty quiet especially if you seat in the booths (extra charge).
For what we spent, we are not totally satisfied.

While the food was good, there was a lot of alarming COVID violations such as the reuse of pencils that weren’t sanitized since the waiter picked ours up from the table and used it as his own the gave it back to us, touching our IDs to check date of birth for alcohol and hardcore menus.

Everything was great until a group of very loud family and kids just ruined the evening. They were very inconsiderate and loud that I couldn’t hear the person sitting right in front of me. Food was great though and service was phenomenal.

Food was decent, nothing note worthy. Staff was very friendly and attentive. We were seated in a booth that shared a back with other people so not really keeping up with social distancing.

It's always a pleasure to eat at Kobe An. The food is amazing and authentic, which is refreshing for a Japanese restaurant in America. Definitely some of the best Japanese food in Denver.

As a person who was born and raised in Japan, I would say this place is very fake, over priced, rip off place. Service is horrible and super slow. We were a big group, so they charged 18 percent service fee for zero star service and they try to sneak in extra 30usd charge on credit card.
Do check your bill carefully.

There are lots of fake or copied Japanese restaurants in the US, this is one of the worst.
