Depends on your chef

We liked the food here and have not complaints. However the overall experience can be enhanced by your table chef. The chef at our table was not nearly as entertaining as the one behind us. We found ourselves listening to his stories over the chef who was right in front of us.

Went there for dinner with a friend. We each had the trio combo which came with Crab cakes, shrimp, chicken, and speak. It also included noodles, fried rice, salad, soup and dessert. It is a great value and there is plenty of food. It is cooked to order in front of you. Our cook Eddie was funny and interacted with... More

The title summarizes my experience. My 17 dollar chicken tasted like rubber, I complained and they offered me a different choice, so I tried the shrimp, which was slightly better. My fiancé on the other hand loved his sushi/sashimi dish.

So we asked about glutenfree food when I knew what was wrong and they said they could prepare some but what I... More

We were lucky enough to get a last minute reservation to Kobe's last night for my bestfriend's 21st Birthday. We got 10:00pm reservations, and got there JUST in time. Be wary, they literally lock the doors right at 10, regardless of incoming reservations. Plan to arrive about 15 minutes early if possible. We enjoyed the "after 9, two dine for... More

We went to Kobe for a birthday dinner. I was a sushi novice, my friend an expert. We both had a great time. The sushi was wonderful. Beautifully served. The sushi chef's did a great job. The servers were very polite and helpful. I would love to return. Great food and great memories.

Dropped by on the way back to the hotel from Universal Studios. Food was very good, cook was a lot of fun and everyone around the table got along well.

Visited here after an exhausting day at Universal Studios. There were 3 people dining, we ordered 3 starters to share buffalo wings, deep fried crab wontons and sushi all delicious. Main courses we ordered crispy chicken, garlic prawns, orange chicken and salmon served with boiled rice. The service and food very good, would definitely recommend this.
