My girlfriend and I were on a trip to the buffalo area and we decided to find a bite to eat, we saw some reviews for this place and decided it looked good. Let me get the one negative out of the way, it's not in the nicest area. That being said, however, I would go again in a heartbeat,... read more

I've been coming here many years, and it's always been one of my favorites. The steak is always cooked exactly how I like it, and they serve some of the best French Onion soup I've ever had. Any visitor or resident of Niagara Falls should come here.

We went to Kobans to celebrate a birthday. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. All of our meals were cooked to perfection and served hot. Soups, veal, chicken parmesan, pierogi and fish were fantastic. The sweet potato fries were the best we ever had and the garlic toast on the table was a surprise. Entrees are served... More

We arrived at the free gill creek concert series a little early (concerts are every wed 7-9 june and july, 6-8 august and sept) so walked next door to Kobans. Clean, retro environment, very friendly bartender who shared stories about the history of the nerghborhood with us as we ate a plate delicious pierogies! Tourists would love this! The polish...

Large menu, great service, good prices. It is in a bad neighborhood, but is very popular with the locals, so we were not concerned.

Grew up in the NFalls area but missed this place during my time there. Visited recently and was able to finally enjoy the great, low priced options of this local favorite. Ordered for take out so did not enjoy the family style atmosphere of the restaurant but did enjoy the great tasting food. The roast beef sandwich was great and... More

After recently attending a community Block Club dinner at Koban's Restaurant (I loved the food and great atmosphere), I decided that it would be a very nice spot to have my annual Christmas Party. Koban's did not disappoint! We packed the place full of people in the Christmas spirit and Koban's made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. The food was... More
