The guy that cooked the food was very rude, unprofessional and nasty. He kept making remarks about me being sexy. I will never, never, never come back to this restaurant. I have been coming to Kobe for over 15 years. You need to train your cooks, he was not a chef just a nasty rude cook.

Normally the food there is absolutely fantastic unfortunately this time I brought my daughter in for her sweet 16’s in a due to the pandemic and was really sad to see that although we enjoyed our guy/chef who is cooking the dinner we enjoyed his entertainment but he didn’t let the lo mein or the rice cook long enough the rice was hard and the lo mein head hard pieces. I didn’t wanna say anything because I didn’t wanna make a scene for my daughter’s birthday but I was very disappointed.

The added a ton of some garlic sauce to everything which totally changes the taste and not in a good way. They should go back to just doing th garlic butter slabs and not the heavy garlic sauce. The “chef” burned the rice and so it was super crunchy. Overall, it was much better before COVID. However, on the positive , I like that they can’t squeeze as many people at a table so it makes it more enjoyable.
