Located in the WalMart shopping plaza, Kobe Express nas a locked-in menu (no changes since opening). Probably busiest time is the lunch period with lots of take-out order. Chicken and shrimp served with either Habachi or Teryiaka sauce. Large portion of rice and either carrots or broccoli tops. Sushi and other items are on the menu. Consistently good food and... More

The food and service here are very good, and not too expensive. I get the Kobe beef and Vegetables, which is very good. The ginger dressing as well as the shrimp sauce are also very good. Well be back to eat again, next time I am in town.

I've always heard if you can smell "fish" when you walk in the door of a sushi place, leave. Should've listened I guess. I came into this place solo for lunch one day. I was really craving sushi and it's the only place in Sylva to get it, so..... I ordered some nigiri and a sushi roll with a side... More

I've eaten here several times and even taken out to go orders. It's always extremely fresh and hot! I usually get hibachi chicken and/or vegetable medley. The ladies who work here have always been friendly. Great value for the large amount of meat, rice, and veggies. Don't forget their shrimp sauce, so good!

Kobe Express serves up some tasty food. You won't be disappointed with the food here. Service could be a bit more friendly.

Their crab & seaweed salad is out of this world! All of the stir-fry dishes were good but the rice was a bit hard here and there, I recommend spending the extra $1 for the noodles. The sushi rolls were excellent.
