Mothers day lunch

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.

I attended this restaurant with a potential business partner who travelled from Japan and was feelings home sick at the time. On arrival we waited 10minutes to be seated and the restaurant wasn't nearly half full. By the time we were seated I requested to order immediately but the waitress was too busy and appeared stressed out. The food came... More

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

This place has a fantastic location over the harbour and should be fantastic. However...it's not japanese as you know it. Not sure what it is but pass it by and move on!

We used a Red Balloon voucher for the 10 course teppanyaki beef & reef degustation dinner. The food was very nice and there was plenty of it but I'm not sure it was delivered quite in the right order. For example the rice dish was served on its own about 3/4 of the way thru and was very filling. To... More

I went there to celebrate by boyfriends birthday and was quite excited for a 13-course meal! The first impression was good, nice atmosphere, we got a table for the two of us facing the harbour. The light was dimmed, and we had a nice and tiny moveable lamp on the table. When the Food first stated coming we were happy... More

Visited this restaurant tonight with my friend as we celebrate his 30th birthday so we thought we could do some fine dinning How wrong were we. We picked the 2 person tasting menu - it started off ok but then the wait staff clearly had no idea how to deliver premium service. When each dish is cleared the next course... More

First time at Japanese restaurant and the options of set or a la carte was welcoming. For the location and food choices, meals quite pricey but well presented and fantastic dining experience.
