Kobe An is a family owned and operated business. We were established in 1979 by Kimie Loeffler. She was inspired to open a Japanese restaurant here in Colorado because she missed the food of her home town Kobe Japan. The restaurant is now being run by her daughter Michelle and son in law Marco. Marco has a true passion for the Japanese culture. He learned the very basics of sushi working at the restaurant and then furthered his training at the Sushi Chef Institute in Los Angeles California. We pride ourselves on serving the freshest fish and a variety of authentic Japanese cuisine. We have private tatami rooms that can accommodate small parties up to 4 people, and also a large tatami room that can accommodate up to 24 people. We are not trendy, we have more of a traditional Japanese decor. If you are looking for a Japanese restaurant that has character and the feel of Japan, look no further. Hope to see you soon

Wish they were 24/7!!!

Kobe An is awesome! Our 7 yr twin girls love this place as much as we do. The prices are very reasonable and the sushi is great. The staff is very polite and respectful. Only bummer is they are closed on Sunday's (no matter what any site says).

The food is about what you would expect, not great, but middle of the road. Unfortunately, any problems brought to the attention of the owner were totally ignored.

Our family used to go to Kobe An all the time before we moved from Lakewood to downtown Denver. I was very happy to learn that Kobe An will be opening a restaurant in Cherry Creek North in a few months, just a mile or less from our house. Looking forward to being a regular patron again!

Not a sushi restaurant that I will be raving about. Other members of my party had dinners and they were not impressed either. The wait staff was very attentive.

If you like Japanese food, go here. They even have rooms where you can sit on the floor in traditional style. Recommend the THE BEST LUNCH COMBO. The Yakisoba Noodles and The Miso Soup were awesome.

I thought the sushi was not as fresh as it should be, and the presentation was very average. I arrived at happy hour, and ordered a combination of happy hour specials and normal menu items. It seemed the happy hour items were a bit skimpy in comparison. Service was good, but the food was just average at best. I found... More

We used to frequent this restaurant. Since moving from the Denver area we have found no Japanese restaurant that even comes close, although we have found some good ones. This place is clean, the waitstaff consists of true professionals who provide the best service. We ordered from the menu, since we are not sushi eaters. I had fond memories of... More

We loved this place. We recently moved from Denver and have struggled to find good sushi in Lakewood and this is it. Very fresh fish, great atmosphere and way above average service

Lone dinner out, sat in the bar. (I hear you can sit "on the ground" Japanese style in the dining room.) California rolls were COLD and FRESH. Usually when I order sushi elsewhere, it's room temp by the time it gets to my table. These were fantastic! I can't wait to try other sushi here. The miso soup was probably... More
