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

Even though they were very busy, we did not have to wait long for a table and the food was good and got to us fast. Everyones food was very tasty.

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.

Large portions, low prices, great fried rice! I love their crunch roll and hibachi chicken. Definitely not a lot of traditional Japanese food or sushi, but great as a starting point for someone unfamiliar with the cuisine. Service has always been hit-or-miss. Won't keep me from going back there though!

The food is okay, especially if you'd enjoy eating Japanese food. It's by no means traditional or flavorful. However it is edible and not horrible. Sushi is mediocre and same with the entrees. It's just okay.

Kobe Express has good service, ample servings and is a nice change of pace with a good selection of Japanese themed food choices. Most people prefer the teriyaki-based options or some of what I'd consider “starter” sushi. It is better than the “chinese buffet” sushi and is made fresh, however this isn't the high quality sushi you'd expect in a... More
