Our teppanyaki chef has skills!

Never had a teppanyaki dinner before. Shown to a booth with 6 other diners. Meal started with a Japanese soup. The chef then displayed skills with his utensils and then expertly "de-tailed" some shrimp. He followed this up with a fire display and a volcano made of onion rings... The food is... read more

Service and food is fantastic, service awesome both in sushi and Teppan. Very expensive. For a special ocasion, if you want to impress your partners or you just won the Lottery it is a great place. Do not forget to make reservations. Paid Parking may be required. Beer and alcoholic drinks are excellent. Cost estimated at $ 150 per couple.

We've been coming here for perhaps 25 or 30 years. Every time we make it to Maui, we plan on having one meal here. The food is good, it is entertaining, and the prices are reasonable. They have an early-bird meal with a reduced-price menu. I believe that the early bird meal is either 5 to 5:30 or 5 to... More

Every year I love to go to Kobe's. It is a choppemup, Japanse restrauant, you sit at a grill with 8 other people, from where you never know. Fun and the food is ok, price is inexpensive and everywhere you go there is $10 off coupon, plus free parking. Seventy three years old and i still enjoy it

Just shared an evening out with friends. The first problem was that they did not have our reservation, that our frends made two days previous. We seemed to wait along time in the bar waiting for the table, only after prompting to the hostess did we get seated. Great show put on by the chef. If you reserve for 5:30... More

This is a nice place to have Hibachi in Lahaina. We had a great Hibachi chef there. Good food, typical hawaii prices. If you like Hibachi this is the place. I can't comment on the sushi since I don't do the sushi thing. Have fun!

We had a Kobe steak and some sushi. Everything was really good. Preparation of the foot by the table and some chat with our table mates made it really special.

We enjoyed the food here. We have been to many similar restaurant. Our chef cooked the food perfectly, but quite pricey for the quantity of food, no refills on the soda's, and the staff that seat you were not all that friendly. Our chef was excellent kept a good running conversation and put on a great show. Usually I find... More
