Better than Benihana and Samuri

Excellent service and food. Fresh, properly cooked. Very accommodating of food allergies. No long wait times. Try this, including the cooking tables, and you will find it delightful. Table service is also a good option. Not quite the quality of Japanese food at Matsuri, but very good... read more

I was with my friends and we sat outside I had to get the host to hand us menus. Then our waitress came and she didn't even say her name. We ordered edamame and they were cold and without salt I was nearly finishing when they brought it. AGAIN I had to go inside to tell our waitress that we... More

Another day off and hubby and I went to Dolphin Mall and stopped by Kobe. We arrived at 11:30 am and had a great lunch. So much better than Benihana and much more affordable but they automatically add gratuity to the check for a party of 2. We were the only people there up until 12:30p when the crowd started... More

I had sushi and salad for lunch and received great service while I was there. I didn't realize the tip was automatically included for a party of 2 and after reviewing my receipt realized I left a $9 tip on a $20 bill. just be careful and read your final bill and know that the tip is already included.

The service is bad. The food is mediocre at best. We had the fried rice which was not good. We had a salad which is one of the worst one we have ever had. Do not waste your money here. Find some place else

The service was good and the location was inside the Dolphin Mall. The food compared to other hibachi places was just OK. The food was bland even though it looked like he put a lot of butter and sauces on the food. I live in Atlanta but the last time I was at Kobe's the food was better. Not so... More

We had dinner here last evening. They did not have enough staff to include us at a hibachi grill, so we decided on a table in the sushi bar with our food cooked elsewhere. Food was okay - not the best Japanese meal I've ever had. Waiter got my order incorrect and had to follow up with the chicken later.... More
