“Decent food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 via mobile

The resturant was your typical Japanese stake house that you would go to anywhere. Our chef however was excellent and took the time to cool all of our meals perfectly. Also get the garlic fried rice, that should be offered at every Japanese steak house!

“Good food, fun evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We've been coming to Maui for many years and often visit the Kobe Steak House for dinner one night during our stay. It's the typical teppanyaki style restaurant but they do it very well. We've never been surprised or disappointed by the food or the service. Our chef this year was particularly personable which made the show more enjoyable, even thought it really doesn't change. The bottom line is if you like teppanyaki style restaurants you will enjoy the Kobe Steak House in Lahaina.

“Disgusting!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This place needs to be closed!!! Dirty ,shabby carpeting, dark dingy interior.
More than the appearance, the service was awful. Waited in bar area for about 20 minutes. We were then seated at teppinyaki table with 3 other couples. We then waited for 40 minutes before a chef came to prepare meal. I asked manager , he said " we are just a little busy." Come on...it was 6pm! Will NEVER go there again or recommend this place to anyone. There are so many great places to go...this is not one of them. Sad though, we have been going there for years. POOR management!

“Needs a facelift”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We've eaten at similar places before, but wanted our kids to have the experience. Pluses- the food was fine. We had an inexperienced chef, but he tried hard and was friendly. Minuses- The host told us we would be seated in about 45 minutes. We left our name, and I told him we would window shop a bit and be back. We returned in 35 minutes, and were told they'd given away our spots since they didn't think we would come back, and that we'd have to wait for the next seating. We waited in the lounge this time. The tables were sticky, it smelled like old drinks, and I'm sure the décor hasn't been updated in 20 years. No one came to ask us about drinks the entire time we sat there.
