This was a birthday dinner for my adult daughter, A dinner out with my wife and our 1 minor child. I have been to Kobe in Honolulu where Im from orignally and this was a first visit for our Ohana here in the desert where we all reside. My wife and I were not impressed our Daughter and son seemed to enjoy. An older. Fillipino looking woman came to say she was covering for our waitress and she was a bit abrrassive and had to check if calamari was avail for appetizer we ordered multiple ones but she was awkaward and came back to say yes and what she brought was overdone. She thankfully left us with good waitress. Our cook was not very good and seemed sloppy. He overcooked steak a bit and shrimp. Our bill was 340.00 and we tipped cook 40 dollars and staff 60. Again in Hawaii the chefs are trained trafitional and really have a more authentic Japanese feel. This was more like going to a Mongolian dinner the garlic spicy fried rice was terrible in my eyes greasy and mushy grains. The onion volcano was poorly excuted. Chefs used to be thourghly trianed in knife skills and all ours did was tap beat like music with knives and spatulas. He cracked eggs on back of spatulla no real trick in that. Messy presentation. I will not recommend this place and feel cheated for overall experience. The waitress we had was pleasant and they did remember to sing Happy Birthday but forgot to light candle and had to locate and redue. We overheard other groups get theirs done correctly but it was done and daughter enjoyed it. We only enjoyed poke appetizers my wife and I asked for a box to take home our entrees which was enjoyed by our older son who did not come. My wife and I felt weird to say anything and didnt want to upset our daughter who seldome eats out with us. She would have been upset if we had spoken up about this and we did not want to ruin. Teppan Chefs need to train properly no fry cooks with sloppy skills please.40$ tip was left in pitty. Pending review.

Since moving to general area 6.5 years ago we've driven by restaurant a zillion times and said to ourselves "one of these days let's eat there (we eat out all the time)". Excellent meal and friendly staff. Thank you very much. We will return.

Great restaurant with great food and excellent service. The teriyaki chicken and shrimp were delicious. Try the Kobe special drink at the bar.

Great chow, awesome chef, and fast. Not sure why people cry about the noise as it’s expected given the environment. Worth the price. Lobster was mad good.
