The beer selection on draft was excellent as was the wine selection.... More

My coworker and myself had dinner tonight at Kobu and will be returning tomorrow. The service was excellent and the meal was even better. Steak cooked to perfection and the prices are very reasonable. I would suggest this restaurant to anyone visiting Mexicali.

The manager, Roberto went out of his way to personally ensure that everything was just right. I was pleasantly surprised to see they had a wide range of craft microbrew beers, you don't... More
