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.

We loved the Kobe steakhouse! Our chef Max was very funny and cooked our meals to perfection. Why go to a different steakhouse when you could come here, watch the wonderful presentation and have a delicious meal. 100% recommend.

The kids would have loved to see more that one little fire show but otherwise cook and staff were amazing! Food was delicious, we’ll be back again.

My girlfriend and I went here for our date night. We were sat with two other couples at our table and we had a great time. The chef was very funny and very talented. The food was amazing and we can't wait to go back for another amazing date night.

Fried rice could add more flavour and different things in it especially since it’s a separate order! Drinks is only one time refill even though we are paying 4$ for it and they get it from boxed for restaurant! Personal opinion Katana’s food is better but the show is better at kobe

I paid 69$ for the kobe steak and lobster but I did not fet the Kobe steak. The couple next to me got it as the cook kept mixing up the orders.

Unfortunately the service could have been better. The experience was nice and the food was delicious. The chef was fantastic with a great personality. I had food restrictions that I told them about it when I booked the table. Upon arrival I also confirmed my restrictions with the hostess and then again with the server just to make sure. I was told every step of the way it all would be completely ok. When it came time for my food to arrive this was not the case and the server made a number of mistakes on my menu and it was disappointing. I had to point out to the server a few times that what she brought me was something I was not able to eat. For the price of our meals I would think I would not have had to do this. Also it was crowded for a pandemic. I definitely will go again but not till the pandemic is over as I felt it was not a safe place with that many people inside all at once.

A small family with everyone over 20 going for fun dinner but The servers were clearly pushing us out even though we had 2 hours there. We left after an hour. They didn’t give us the tea to make sure we order Drinks we have to pay for. They brought the desserts while people were still eating their mains. They would toss the plates around in the bins as if they were irritated. While we were eating dessert they kept interrupting us saying what else can we do, are you done and would death stare at us as if we were taking to long. When we were able to engage in conversation with each other they would pop up again and interrupt us to basically say hurry up. The restaurant was a fun experience and good food but they made it very uncomfortable cause made it completely clear that they are trying to get the most amount of money out of us and they are trying to get rid us.

This was by far the most fun and delicious dining experience I have had. The food was so good and our chef was very funny. I love that they cook right in front of you. It was a wonderful date with my partner. We will be back.

Great food, really enjoyed our dinner. But it didn’t seem like much was done in the way of social distancing. The only difference was plexiglass between groups.

Ordered the Steak and it was really bitter. Too much soy sauce or something. But did not get the food experience we expected. No options of seasoning we would like.

Chef was great, funny and kept us engaged.
