This restaurant is similar to a Benihana but with some added items such as cuban style skirt steak. I sat at a table near the sushi area, where you can order hibachi and skip the show. My waitress was attentive and my food was cooked perfectly, just the way I ordered it. It was very delicious. Clear onion soup (they... More

while shopping in dolphin mall of miami, we stoppes in this restaurant to experience the hibachi cuisine: you get a show of chefs dexterity with his knifes and chopping of the food on the grill plate right in front of you. It is not an exceptionally fine cuisine but good for the price, and kids will love it, and you... More

The tempanyaki was really funny and had a great time, however the change of server was a disaster since they left us with the food and no drinks nor asked if we are good or need something else. Moreover, we had to beg to get our bill that by the way they charge 18% no matter what you order... completely... More

Hibachi is great. Chicken breast is cooked to perfection and sauce gives it that final kick. Location is a bit pricey per plate but worth it as you get a big portion of food. Well recommended.

It is the place to visit for your first real ultimate sushi experience - have no doubt - prepare for the real sushi experience in a Japanese environment making your dining more memorable plus the photo backgrounds you may want to take.

I enjoyed the food. The fried rice is amazing. I went for dinner with family and they were very good about keep the food separated for someone in our group with a shellfish allergy. Not as upscale as Benihana, but the food is just as good. My sister said the food was better

Visited the Kobe for a quick sushi but it was a bit disapponting. The menu was long and seemed apetising but when the food came it was not as expected. We have eaten much better in similar Japanese restaurants in Europe. The veggie tempura was very poor and the food in general seemed to have been cooked by an American... More

My partner and I grabbed dinner here while in Miami for the evening. Unfortunately, this was not the best place to have dinner while in Miami for one night. The service was slow and not friendly or accommodating at all. We placed our drink orders twice and waited close to 20 minutes to receive them, and the restaurant wasn't even... More

Went to dolphin mall saw plenty of places to eat, felt like eating sushi. We noticed every single restaurant was busy and the patios were full except for kobe, no one on the patio and two tables inside, they were so empty we thought they were closed. We sat down ordered the lunch menu and had our plates come out... More
