Great Night Out

We bought our Kobe Jones vouchers on Groupon which means we got a great price on a 9 course meal which made for a great night out. I've had teppanyaki but never like this, it wasn't gimmicky or cheap ingredients there was no food tossing (or spilling) and no going home hungry! We had dressed... read more

Our group of four enjoyed the 13 course Summer Sensation Banquet on a balmy evening as the sun set over Darling Harbour. The food and wine was of a good standard, as was the service. It can get a little busy, but that is almost to be expected with such a good location. Chinese New Year fireworks over Darling Harbour... More

The quality of the produce was below acceptable. The service was almost non existence and overall I would NOT recommend this place even to an enemy!

Each time we visit Sydney, we dine at Kobe Jones, and if there is a Groupon voucher available - then we consider that a bonus. This trip we took advantage of the taste of summer menu which comprised 13 dishes served in 8 sets. We arrived at 7.30pm and were shown to our table overlooking the wharf. Water was poured... More

To be honest. Food is a modern japanese food. I do understand. Taste is alright not as i am expected for that price (set up a high standard). I have been several great restaurants and I know what the great japanese food like. However service is a main key. Not enough staffs, too slow and noisy. Tables n chairs (see... More

Worst service ever, waiting time was 3 times longer than eating time We had ordered the "all you can eat" sushi, waited 1 hour before the food arrived. Asked for more wasabi and ginger which came after we finished eating. Waited another 1 hour until more sushi came out, by this time we just wanted to leave - food was... More

I booked a table for 2 for Valentine's Day and chose the 11 course degustation menu since a friend had advised that it was a new menu and the descriptions sounded wonderful. We also paired the meal with the suggested wines. I had high expectations since the last time I tried their degus, it was amazing. I had mixed feelings... More
