Entertaining chef

Enjoyed dinner with family. The food was good but average for this type of restaurant. The table service staff seemed slow, the hibachi chef was good and entertaining although he did confused two of our orders. For a special occasion Kobe is very nice. Join their birthday club for a discount.

You get so much food. I suggest not to just sit there but to interact with the chefs. They do the same jokes, but it's all about how you respond to them that makes the experience different each time.

I got the seafood trio and it was excellent. They are a bit pricey, but I don't mind paying for good food and we were lucky enough to have children sitting at our table. It's always fun to watch them when they set the onion volcano on fire. Our chef was young and did a good job.

A fresh sushi spot located on Rt 60. Sat at the bar and had a nice sushi dinner with my sister. Sashimi and nigiri. Very good rolls . Spicy Tuna needed to be a little more spicy. Overall quality very good. Enjoyed.

The chef prepares the meal in front of a group of customers. The food is very good with generous portions. I generally have enough food for lunch the next day. The service is good. The group seating accommodations for a large or tall person could be challenging. The restaurant accepts reservations and offers private tables. I recommend.

Those of us who dine out on special occasions look at value per dollar spent not the bottom line of the bill. This restaurant gives you both. We took our son, daughter in law, born in Tokyo and lived their for most of her life, and his family, who lived in Japan for eight years to Kobe for dinner. We... More

In and out in an hour. No interaction with the cook. When you pay at much money for a meal, don't make it such a rush. The cook just went thru his process, I know he does it a million times, but show some interest with the guests. The food is just good, not great.

The meals are not cheap (definitely get the rewards card for great deals) and if you get the wrong chef, the meal goes downhill--I've experienced burned meat & veggies or a chef who panders to a group of three and gives away some of my party's food to them to make a better tip (he got a dollar from me...
