We usually love this place but had a very bad experience this evening. The chief was terrible and the food that he cooked. The waiter was not very good either. I guess a off night for both didn’t eat our food or take it home and was only compensated one meal and a 25 dollar credit for next time.

Celebrated my birthday here and had never been to Kobe. I’ve been to other hibachi restaurants and this by far was the best. Very attentive and keeping the ambiance fun but comfortable when dining. I would say the only thing to expect is that it gets pretty warm inside but to be expected since your in front of the grill and they do the fire show in front of you as well. No fault of the restaurant, just advice for what to expect. Otherwise, very fun experience. Well done!

The food was excellent and the service was great! The only thing was that the portion was smaller than usual. The other party at our table had asked for extra Rice and Noodles. I figured they were just going to cook more. However it seems that they used some of our portion for them. Not a deal-breaker but a little off-putting

Honestly, I’ve been to Kobe at least 15 times and this was the best by far. We really like the altamonte location but haven’t been to any of them for years. We went on a date night and I loved that they had party separators that the tables- not just for Covid but because my husband and I could have our own conversation.

Food was great. The chef was funny ans spot on. He was accommodating to my picky husband and another picky husband- plain fried rice and no veggies.

I got a mai tai and really didn’t like it. I had a few sips and the manager happily took it back. No questions.

I wish they had some sort of dress code because the clientele wearing gym shorts and hats- was kinda silly. It’s not a fancy place but still!

Anyway, overall, it was a great night!

Thank you Chef Kevin for the amazing experience & well cooked food. Our date night was a success & this guys energy was unmatchable. We did see one of the chefs were quite annoying with his fake goofy laugh, to loud for us when trying to enjoy the sheer elegance of chef Kevin and his altruistic vibes. Thank you so much!
