We had a set menu and the food was average. Previously had excellent experiences at other Kobe Jones restaurants so was very disappointed. Service was very good.

Went here yesterday with my partner, to have a nice 11-course dinner, booked by a Groupon deal. The price seemed pretty grand for a Groupon deal $69 so we were looking forward to a wonderful night out with amazing food! We were greeted by two lovely ladies, one of them took us to 'our diner room', where 10 other people... More

Successfully booked online ahead of time. Great food and service, a really enjoyable night out. A variety of rooms to cater for different sized groups. Would be fun to return with a group of friends.

A classier version of teppanyaki without eggs being thrown at you and with lobster and Alaskan crab on the menu! Lots of fun. Would be better to go in a group of 8 so you have a whole table to yourself rather than sharing, but that was still OK.

The food and wine were excellent but expensive. The per person meal was$ 75 per person and the wine around $60 per... More

After two previous visits, we were looking forward to another. We booked for 8 to celebrate a friend’s milestone birthday using Groupon. The retail value of the deal, according to Groupon, was $195/head. When we arrived, we were told that our reservation was at their other restaurant. We booked using the phone number on the voucher, but it seems that... More

We got a scoopon for this teppanyaki and it was a very good deal. The lobster tail and Wagyu Beef where superb. The only issue during the winter will be window open. If the window is closed because the cold weather outside, the smoke will bounce back to you. Apart from that, it was spectacular!

We tried the 6 course "Autumn on the Rocks" degustation menu on a Friday night. Service was excellent as was the food. The first course consisted of the "Flaming Number One Special" which consisted of crab salad with avocado wrapped in Hiramasa kingfish and flamed on the teppan" - it was delicious. This was followed by the Parmesan scallop, calamari... More

So disappointed. Set menus very restricted and you can not change around at all. Not child friendly at all. Waited for an hour for service and then whole meal came within 1/2 hour!!! Was not a dining experience at all and food was quite flavourless. Asked them to call taxi at end and refused. Def wo't be going back again!

My partner and I went here for my birthday dinner. I have never been to a teppanyaki restaurant before so was excited to see what it had to offer. If you want a classic teppanyaki restaurant do not come here as this is definitely your fancy, high-end type of teppanyaki. The food is absolutely amazing though! We had a 6-7... More
