Here at the "KOBE", we carry on the ancient art of teppanyaki - hibachi style cooking, in authentic Japanese country-inn ambiance.
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 tenderest steak, the freshest seafood, free-range chicken, and garden fresh vegatables....all before your very eyes in true Japanese style.

Kobe’s is a favourite of mine. Whenever I’m in the city, I always make a point to have dinner at Kobe’s, and I’m never disappointed. The food is delicious, and the staff and chefs are amazing. I’ve become friends with many of them, and I’m always made to feel very valued. That too as much as the food always brings me back. Thank you.

Waited a little over the reservation time due to having to wait for a full table before being seated. Wait staff a bit slow but very friendly. Not the most entertaining show I've ever seen but the food is better than the average teppanyaki place. Seating is tight and the atmosphere is loud, but it was part for the course on a weekend night. Overall I was very satisfied and would return.

For us we went for our anniversary apparently they where supposed to do something special nothing happened, however that's not the bad part, for me I've been to places like this in other places it was more exciting more interactive and so this was a let down, the chef struggled a little and the service wasn't very good upstairs the waiter forgot our waters,didnt ask about giving us more rice, and overall didn't communicate very well also was hard to communicate which is hard for me as I like specific ways to have my food cooked, I talked to my parents later and they where surprised and said it sounded like a dud and they love it so maybe we just got unlucky or I had high standard. My girlfriend loved it however



Thanks
Greg

One of chefs turned on the grill as a result of this, the plates melted on to the grill, furthermore, the server burned her hands trying to take them off. We sat for 40 minutes without any food. We werent offered any compsenations for that experience and it was also a birthday dinner. The chef had a great performance however. Glad it wasnt my first time there

It was too expensive food experience to the only fire show but the food was just very mediocre and normal shirimp and steaks and veggies. I mean the chef who is showing and cooking in front of us is amazing but the food was just okay and the price is crazy.

Unfortunately the quality of food was poor. Two of us felt little sick in stomach that night and the next day. The food is too salty. The meat was delicious so it is sad that the quality was not good enough. Sadly I won't go back to Kobe.

The food was great. We ordered a ultimate combo and a emperor's feast combo and shared them.
The chef knows how to warm up the atmosphere and we really enjoyed having dinner there. Great place if you want some protein:)

I hadn’t been there for years so it was fun to go again. I remember more knife throwing and interaction with the chefs before- there was little this time and each one has the same jokes, same routine exactly. Service was not great. Took over 30 mins to get drinks and had to ask a few times for water. I had a gift certificate so I wasn’t bothered but if I had to pay full price- I wouldn’t have been happy. Food was good. Overall a fun night and I would probably go once a year at most.

I just love this place. The staff are friendly ; the chefs are entertaining; and the cocktails tasted amazing. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and she loved it; she took a bite of the shrimp and kind of leaned back with a content look on her face it was funny heh. I have been here 5-6 times over the years and have never been let down. Don't expect your meals to start right on time as they can run differently depending on the night but it is totally worth going just don't try to squeeze it in before a show, best to go afterwards.
