This was a great experience for us. We walked in and within 5 minutes were seat at a table with 8 other people waiting to be entertained by our chef. The wait staff was prompt and attentive. Offering suggestions for the menu, as well as the drink list, even a bottle which was a savings over several glasses of wine.... More

Went to this restaurant because it was next to the hotel and we were looking for Asian cuisine. Was seated in a corner to the left and then subjected to the worst service I had in the USA. I had to ask several times for my drink, chicken was over cooked and inedible, and waitress implied it was due to... More

Made reservations online and never received confirmation. Arrived and was seated on-time. The hostess asked about food allergies and we stated egg. The cook who seemed drunk used egg and had to start over. The noodles were a disgusting addition to the Asian meal. The veggies were not cooked. It was obvious they just try to turn and burn tables.... More

Having been to the Kobes in altamonte we went here for a friends birthday. We had to wait 10 minutes before being seated, which wasn't a problem as we sat at the bar and had a drink. We were seated with 5 others which was fun as the atmosphere was good. The food itself was good, we had the chicken... More

We were in Orlando again and wanted something Non-Disney, so we tried this place on Kirkman, just North of Universal Studios. There is also another one on International Drove, same chain. We have been to this type of hibachi grill before, Benihana, etc. and have enjoyed them for the most part, but found them expensive. They are special occasion places.... More

Our first visit to Kobe and we had a great time! The food was delicious! Prices were comparable to other hibachi style restaurants and you get a lot of food! Our plates were over stuffed! You get salad (their ginger dressing was the best I've had), soup, and with your meal comes veggies, fried rice, noodles (mouthwatering), and your meat.... More

This is my family's favorite place to eat. Whenever the kids come to town, we always go to Kobe'. I have been enjoying their cooking for over 10 years. It's easy to make reservations online which I do all the time. I eat here usually once a month sometimes twice. The seafood is excellent and the portions are well worth... More

We were in Orlando for two days and ate sushi at Kobe's three times - it was that good. I lived in Japan for 19 years so I am confident in saying the sushi chef here knows what he's doing, the fish is fresh and the flavors are authentic. Perfection!

Food was excellent and our cook, Eddie, was wonderful. He really put on a show. Loved his singing and jokes. We were there for my son's birthday celebration. They treated him great. Chef hat and cake. Will defiantly go back.
