This is located on the waterfront of darling habour. so it charges high price for tourists. we went for the Land and sea banquet (AUD$330) and only 3 dish was good, the others were average/bad. Dessert was a small mud cake with a scope of vanilla ice cream... seriously ? I recommend you try "Kobe Jone's The Rocks Teppanyaki" ,... More

We dined here for a 9 course degustation meal which was sensational! Every meal that came out was just enough for the 6 of us and was super tasty. The downfalls...we made a booking but still needed to wait for 45minutes before we got our table. The second last and last meals took at least 30 minutes before they came... More

I visited Kobe Jones for the first time for dinner with a groupon voucher. We were seated immediately even though we were 20 minutes early for our booking. One thing I did notice upon walking in was that there was a very strong fishy odour in the waiting area. Our food was arriving as we finished each plate but around... More

The food was very good. We had to chase up the second course (there was along pause after the first was cleared away) but after that the courses came one after another as you would expect. The staff were friendly and polite, and whilst there was music and a number of people (it was a Friday night), we didn't think... More

We purchased Groupon voucher to use and found most customers using voucher as well. Not sure if that's the reason staff not very friendly. Waited long time until someone served water and took order. We spent 3 hours for 16 courses tasting menu and it was exhausting as it's a very noisy restaurant. Food was nice and worth the money... More

We bought a Groupon voucher for $139 12 course fusion for my birthday. The music was too loud that we need to shout at each other. Not allowed us to swap the sake to lemon and lime bitters. The restrooms signs were so confusing "L, D, G" to differentiate them. It took me and another lady about 10 secs to... More

One of my favorite restaurant in Sydney. Love their seasonal set menu, combines so much tasty dishes to spoil the whole family. Can't wait for the next visit. Yummy!

I went there last month and found it became quite bad. The seafood is not fresh and the service is bad. Just don't go.

We came for lunch, we decided to have the all-you-can-eat sushi special. You only get 4 types of sushi on the all-you-can-eat (vegetarian, prawn tempura, scallop and "crab"). We ordered at 12PM, got our first platter at 12:45, our second platter arrived at 1:45 and our third arrived at 2:15. Obviously their plan to keep costs down on the all... More
