We would never eat at Kobe Jones ever again between the food and the service I don't know which one was worse. The food was actually the worse we ever had we came to Kobe jones in spite of all the terrible reviews that have been written, but once we were there we came to understand all the reviewers points....

I have been going to Kobe jones lime st off and on for many years. Unfortunately last night was a joke. As there was 4 of us for my Birthday Celebration we were originally sat between other customers in the almost empty restaurant . On enquiring whether we could move to a corner, we were told. It was already booked.... More

We chose to go here on a voucher to try it out, as the name is quite popular. On arrival, it was clear things weren't going smoothly. The gentlemen/host was doing a great job of holding it together, but coming from a restaurant manager, it was clear things were falling apart behind the scenes, which sometimes cant be helped. Our...

We were a little concerned about booking at Kobe Jones for a special occasion based on recent erratic reviews but we were staying in Darling Harbour and wanted Japanese close by. Our review is positive. The food was excellent and the service attentive. On the Scoupon deal for the 11 course degustation, it was around half price and I think... More

As a group of 6 we bought a discounted voucher for a "degustation menu". Even then the experience was overpriced. Arriving at 6.25 for a 6.30 booking our orders were taken at 6.35 but at 6.55 we had still not received water or our ordered wine. What followed would make the Fawlty Towers waiter cringe. Our Thai waitress, (this is... More

We went tonight - a sunday night. Should have checked bill before paying but they had a $60 sunday surcharge just for 4 people having a modest meal. I thought about the bill driving home and wondered how it could be so high - and then i saw it. GIGANTIC RIPOFF. The food was just OK - expensive for what... More

My wife and I dined at Kobes using a Winter Romance 13 course voucher which cost $69.00 per person. We have been once before and had enjoyed the experience . Our experience this time was just as good with the food being extremely tasty and included lobster, soft shell crab and many other interesting dishes all being very tasty. The... More

We ate recently in this restaurant and were disappointed with the service (slow and waitress was uninterested). My starter dishes were not removed from the table until after I had finished my main course. The chef did not engage much with the diners. Three of our party had oysters and all three were ill within 2 hours of the meal.... More

Went in a group of 4 and ordered the perfect for 2 menu which was $100 per person. Definitely overpriced and no value for money at all for what you get. If you do end up going here,I would recommend steering clear of the set menus and ordering some items from the small and large plates. Nice views of harbour... More

Staying in Darling Harbour

Neighborhood Profile
Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining options from budget to upscale and million dollar views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's. Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world. The Australian National Maritime Museum and the IMAX theatre are also popular attractions. The Harbourside Shopping Centre is a site unto itself, with hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars. On Saturdays in the summer, the city puts on a spectacular fireworks show along the harbour's shore and there are plenty of other free events during the year - Darling Harbour Fiesta, VIVID’s light installations and the Sydney Festival, just to name a few.
