Kobe Jones is a stalwart at Lime Street Wharf. Although it has been around for many years it is not complacent. The degustation menu is creative and flavoursome. Presentation is thoughtful and in keeping with Japanese culture but with a twist. Friendly wait team that explains the dish. Request a table on the balcony and enjoy the harbour view.

I have always loved what this place has to offer. Their Number one special, volcano rolls, kobe beef on hot rocks is truly something amazing. If you are feeling like some thing light, the riceless lollypop sushi is a must. The venue offers a good harbour side seating overlooks Kings Stresst wharf. The service had indeed declined in the last... More

Kobe Jones is at the handy location on the side of Darling Harbor. Tried a few restaurants along the kings wharf, I have to say the the food and services at Kobe Jones are average. The overpriced food was quite often carried out by the unsmiling waitresses and the response to the patrons' request was pretty slow.

We had the romantic degustation menu & all the courses were delicious. If you didn't like seafood you would be in trouble as all but one were seafood- which suited us. The crab salad was the start of our dinner & was really delicious finishing off with lobster cooked on hot stone at the table. Dessert was an Asian inspired... More

Reading previous reviews, I was a bit dubious about whether or not this restaurant would impress me. Well, it did and my friends were equally impressed. Food was sensational and services was great. The quality of the food was what I was expecting - we were not disappointed and would come back again!

Had some good friends visiting from overseas, Australians now living in London who wanted to go back to one of their favourite restaurants in Sydney. Kobe Jones. We booked well in advance thinking it would be difficult to get a table. We were really looking forward to a great night with delicious food and great service. Well, what a huge... More

We regularly dine at the restaurant and it never fails to disappoint. The food is always amazing, the view overlooking darling harbour is great and the service is always attentive. Great place for either a special occasion or even dinner with a group.

The food was amazing though I found the red lighting a little off putting. The staff were friendly and attentive. Big issue with the wine list though. We tried 3 wines in all and they just kept getting worse.
