In all seriousness was the worst meal my wife and I have ever had. I never complain to management but this day I had. They were nice enough to refund some of my meal. Food was not done and cooked meal in less than 5 min.

Note: This restaurant is not affiliated nor part of the Kobe Japanese Steak House, Inc. Good food for a great price and excellent for the family. I have been in quite a few Japanese Steakhouses and most of them will cook the food in front of you, the side-dishes are almost the same (rice, vegetables, soup) and the food plenty... More
