When you had enough fish this is where you should go. Your choice of hibachi or sushi, great food and service.

While Kobe's is fun too, as always, our reservation was treated as a suggestion. We arrived a few minutes early for our 7pm reservation and were immediately seated in the lounge where we remained until 7:45 when a host rushed us to our table. We had ordered a dish from the sushi bar as we were both starving, and the... More

While most diners head to Kobe for the Teppanyaki, the locals certainly know where the best sushi on the Island is. Entrenched inside Kobe, is the renowned Oku's Sushi Bar where Oku, a master (and actually Japanese) sushi chef of many a decade tirelessly creates authentic and exceptional traditional sushi from the finest of ingredients. Having sampled Oku's creations many... More

We waited much longer for our table than we would have liked. Having a 7:30 reservation but not seated til 8:15 or so. Then came our cook Scotty making us laugh non stop and cooking us the best meal of our trip. We will definetly come back to Kobe. They were so busy Thursday night, but the meal and fun... More

In the spirit of full disclosure, we didn't stay for the meal. Checked in, was sent to bar, waited for table, watched bartender and waiter at bar hand wash four wine glasses to remove the debris! Was seated at a terribly crowed table with no room to move, menus were dirty with food. Prices par to high. After no service... More

If I could give them zero stars I would, did not even get to eat, had reservations for 7:30 PM, they directed us to wait in the bar, after 30 minutes asked hostess when would be seated, she stated soon. At 8:05 we were seated, I noticed the group sharing our station had ordered sushi, thought that was weird. At... More

We came here twice for sushi while on our vacation. This place has delicious sushi rolls like the rainbow roll, spicy tuna roll and shrimp tempura roll! The rolls are quite large which is great. You must try 'DYNAMITE'... It has shrimp, scallops and vegetables baked with a delicious sauce and we ordered a side of rice to eat with... More

The restaurant was dingy and kind of dirty. The bartender was an old cranky guy. The chef was not very entertaining and we waited almost an hour after our reservation for service. The food was average and on the expensive side. I didn't taste very fresh. I've been to several teppanyaki style establishments and this was one of the worst,... More
