“Good food, but small portions and overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

yes, Kobe serves nice food. However their sushi is no better than Tokio HOuse or Yakitoria, but much higher priced.
They serve also other Japanese dishes. Some of the portions are ridiculously small though (I mean very very small) and everything is pricey.
As it is one of those places that is almost always open sometimes you end up here when every other place is closed. However other than for a traditional Japanes Tea there are better places in Odessa for Japanese food.

“Huge prices for average food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Me and my wife visited Kobe today. I've read previous reviews and don't even know what to say. May be something has changed since march ? (Previous review) So, the food is absolutely average, the same quality of food or even better one can find in the nearest Yakitoriya but for two times lower price. As a result - the restaurant stays empty we were the only guests there.

“Probably best Odessa japanese restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Have taken japanese customers there - they were impressed by food and quality. Probably thats the best recommendation. Interior is a bit strange for Japanese place and sometimes there are some mishaps. However there is no better, or almost so.

“Excellent food in a nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2011

Very nice restaurant, with a wide range of traditional Japanese food. The decoration is surprising but very cozy and chic. The staff is extremely polite and there are menus in English. The food is excellent, try the kobe veal, the yellowtale sushi and the green tea tiramisu.
