Japanese
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.

    This food was top notch. It was my girlfriend and I’s first time at Kobe’s and definitely not our last. Our cook Raffy cooked some delicious food for us and put on quite a show. I got the steak and was not disappointed when the steak melted in my mouth, not to mention I waited 5 minutes before it was fully cooked. The decore, lighting and music made for a very comfortable atmosphere, as well as the fantastic customer service. It is %100 worth the price, definitely get dinner at Kobe’s if you’re ever in the area.

    Our family absolutely loves Kobes! We just ate there two nights in a row! We bring our two kids and the service staff and chefs always make it a fun time. It’s our favorite spot whenever we do a stay-cation in Vancouver.

    The food was amazing!! The chef was excellent ! The seating arrangement was too tight! They try to seat too many people per table which does not make it comfortable to squeeze into your table setting!!

    It's a low grade Mongolian grill with Michelin Star prices. Food is poorly cooked, not seasoned and Filet steak is butchered by a sad circus act calling themselves a chef.

    Kobe is more of a novelty than a great food restaurant. The steak is decent, but overpriced. Nearly all surfaces are sticky, not clean and the restaurant is quite dark.... maybe on purpose.
