Entertaining for everyone

We had a baby with us and she loved the show at Kobe. The food was great. The people who sat us were a little impatient (one of us needed a diaper change before the meal), but the man who prepared the food was great. I am not a huge fan of "sit with strangers" dining, but this wasn't too... read more

Great food and lots of rice! They cook the food right in front of you at your table. The food is very fresh and the cooking seems to entertain the children.

I went there with my boss and his boss, so this place had to be great! They walked in and were not impressed and asked me to make sure we wanted to eat there. I went in and asked how was the sushi and the servers said that they eat it all the time. I explained my situation and they... More

We have been patrons of this restaurant since they opened. We are great sushi fans and have been thrilled with the quality of the sushi and the sushi chefs. We have bragged that our little town is very fortunate to have such wonderful sushi. (When we travel we go to great lengths to find the BEST sushi restuarants...so feel that... More

I did remember coming to Kobe in Smithfield, one year ago. I did like the Sweet Potato Roll. I also like some other assortment of sushi. It is a nice area in Smithfield. The next time when I comeback, I'll try hibachi!!

I have never been in one of these restaurants before And was slightly nervous sitting at hot oven plate alongside two other parties of folk I had never met! But what an experience - we laughed to much and were in complete awe of the "swordsmanship" of our chef that any nervousness passed quickly As typical - portions were far... More

Typically I get take out and they are quick in preparing it and the food quality is good. The price is average I think and the people are friendly.
