Great food but lacks atmosphere

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... read 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.

We have now visited Kobe Jones in Sydney twice almost exactly 12 months apart. We have had two different degustation meals around 13 courses each time. In both times the food has been prepared extremely well, arrived in a timely fashion and was a great range of foods and flavours. The first time was a birthday surprise for me we... More

I bought two KobeJones Groupon Autumn Menu vouchers upgraded to $88.00 per person and used them for dinner last night 14/4/2015. We were very disappointed with the quality and quantity of their food. The promo was very deceiving and we ended wanting to pass by McDonald' for a burger to fill ourselves up. Definitely, NOT good value for our dollar.... More

So disappointing. Feel so ripped off. Went for a birthday dinner - spent around $100 for each person (we didn't even order any alcohol!) and left the guests hungry and angry. We all ordered the $39 Dinner Special, as well as a la carte tempura, wagyu beef AA6++ and wagyu AA10++. The Flaming No. 1 was pretty much a frozen... More

I took a client to Kobe Jones for lunch recently and I have to say that it was poor to say the least! Whilst the view is beautiful and the service was ok, what really lets the place down is the food! I ordered a Sashimi Salad which for $39 I assumed would be some something more interesting than just... More

Gorgeous all weather balcony overlooking Darling Harbour. We have the 13 course with the Alaskan Crab that was cooked to absolute perfection with each course rolling at the right time. We will be back

My husband does not eat shellfish or mushrooms and usually he can be accommodated - but not at Kobe Jones where they would not replace items for the Tepanyaki at all. Consequently he had to pick items from the a la carte menu - this was adequate. However his meal was over twice as much as my set menu. The... More
