Disappointing, poor food and no real skill of chefs

I heard good things about this place. Unfortunately they were only hearsay. The chefs were surly, they were not skilful compared to Benihana, the atmosphere was lacking and the food was similar to that of a food court. Very disappointing. I had taken my girlfriend out for a special treat, she is a... read more

A beautiful space. The service was very attentive. The selection of dishes was a delight with an emphasis on seafood. Each dish is just enough for sharing between 2. Would recommend for a special occasion.

Over priced and average food. The service was good and the views great, however, this restaurant wouldn't survive in the suburbs as the food was pretty ordinary for the exorbitant prices. Lucky they have a great location with lots of passing trade. I wouldn't go back.

Worth it only if you pre purchase a deal, otherwise it is way overpriced. Great Japanese tapas and sushi, location is awesome and staff are incredibly friendly. I pre purchased a deal from OurDeal

- A 14-course meal cost about $69 on groupoon. If you do not want to use the voucher then you will have to pay full price which is $150. - Service is good, no complaint. - All the dishes are very exquisite. Even though I am not a person who likes to splurge much on meals, I think it is... More

* Excellent service * Accommodated four children with ease * Wonderful food * Can't wait to go again! * It was full but we still felt like we were able to talk to one another and not feel stuffy, because the seating was well placed.

Very enjoyable meal. Set menu for the day. Great spot, good views and waiter prepared to do a little bit extra to make our experience memorable. Food excelllent, the only critism was a surcharge for Sunday when we had paid for a set meal and ordered extra wine.

We dined at Kobe with an Ourdeal Voucher for 2 people - 9 course Kobe Jones Winter Loving degustation menu. From the minute we sat down until the minute we left, service is amicable. Unfortunately it was a rainy winter night, we did not get to have the blinds up to enjoy the view. The price for the amount of... More

Pretty good, Japanese meets Mod Oz, with creamy sauce on top. Not sure how the cholesterol levels did, but the taste buds enjoyed it. Bring back the all you can eat lunch time sushi deal! pricey without it.

The food is delicious! We didn't know what to get from the al la carte so we chose the set menu called Natsu (summer) so we had a variety of different dishes to try. Out of the 11 dishes I probably didn't like 2 or 3 dishes. Staff was nice, service was good, bathroom was clean! Food portions was generous,... More
