Here at "KOBE", we carry on the ancient art of teppanyaki - hibachi style cooking, in authentic Japanese country-inn ambience.
The word "KOBE" suggests to the gourmet the ultimate in the finest beef, raised on delicacies, and gently massaged to perfection.

Watch as we lovingly prepare the most tender steak, the freshest seafood, free-range chicken, and garden fresh vegetables - all before your very eyes in true Japanese style.

The food there was amazing! My boyfriend and I went for our second anniversary and is a great time! Our chef was very talented and engaging. It was a really good time and I’m definitely looking forward to going there again.

Kobe’s is one of my favourite restaurants to go to. We went to celebrate my birthday and it was my partners first time. The food and drinks are delicious but the food preparation is entertaining as well. However this last time there was no entertainment. Our chef was very here is your food, eat and on to the next. I was not impressed at all especially when I have been there many times and I know how it is supposed to be.

We came across some guest that seems to be (regulars) in the restaurant that were allowed by the reception to enter, linger around, stand wherever the customers want without wearing a mask.
None of the staff seems to bother to ask them to wear mask because they know that they are regular customers.

Everything was great. Only downside was the COVID restrictions and barriers. But it’s understandable. Would have been better without it tho.

Our chef was very boring.... other tables were happening n looks like they were having lots of fun but our chef was very boring didn’t do much..... hopefully that chef get more entertaining in future.

Lady give rice n drinks had some attitude issues... wasn’t friendly at all.... service is very poor now. Time to pull up Your socks 🧦 team Kobo’s.

Management needs to train there staff on friendliness and chefs to be equally entertaining on all tables.

We went for my sons 11th birthday. We had 6 people. Our youngest son whos picky had a drink. When the bill came they charged us the tip at 18% because we had 6 people. We were not happy as we only had 5 people eating. For 3 of us in my paying group that auto tip was over $37 and my friend and her son who shared a $73 ultimate meal her auto tip was over $24. So our table of 5 paid $61 as a tip which was outrageous. I suggest going to Osaka Teppenyaki next time. They treat us way better and dont charge for people who arent eating. Im not happy. I ate the chicken and steak combo the steak was very rare(was supposed to be med rare) that both my husband and i put our meat back on the flat top to cook more. We will not return

Chef was rushed. Didn't get our fried rice we ordered. Celebrating a birthday and everyone around us got a free dessert except us.
For the price, expected more.

We've been coming to Kobe for years, last time was in 2019. Had dinner on 3/20/21,
Best meal ever, food was amazing and the largest portions we have ever received.
The chef was perfect, kept us entertained but stilled allowed us to do our thing.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Sat us early. Great! Others at table already eating soup and 1/2 way through their cocktails. Was rushed by super polite staff to order drinks and meals. Pay high price for food and entertainment. Food was very good, but was not the usual fun and entertaining as in past visits. May have been due to chef telling us it was his 1st night? Found ourselves watching other tables for the "fun & entertainment". Felt rushed to get out as well. Our visit was just under an hour. Came all the way from Kelowna to celebrate my sons 30th. Left full, but disappointed.

Another great food and service experience at Kobe. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and the other family at the same grill station were celebrating their daughters 13th. The staff were really attentive and acknowledged both a few times!

We've learned that if you desire a quiet dinning experience to book a later time. The noise level until about 730 -8 pm tends to be people yelling over each other (attention seekers perhaps?). We enjoy the meal and the company within our group and really shouldn't have to yell at each other to carry on a civil conversation.

If it's your first time going, you DO NOT need to eat everything as it goes onto your plate lol I did and was full before the steak came.. beware!

Your Whiskey Sour is served in such a weird glass considering that mostly Men order that drink. Last time we went it was served in a normal drink glass this time in this ridiculously dainty glass my husband's found it hard to handle as his hands are so large.

Would definitely recommend Kobe. We had the dine out menu and cocktails and everything was delicious. My only negative is that once you are finished the main course, everything is very rushed after that. I know they must have other sittings and need the table back but for the price of the meal it would be nice to be able to take your time. Overall, a great experience, 100% will go again!

I have never been to a teppanyaki restaurant that finished dinner within one hour only. They rushed everyone to finish our food and packed the left over then straight giving us the bill which makes me feel very unpleasant.
I have to pay $54 dine out for such experience is not worth it. The steak is not tender at all.
