I added Kobe Cafe to TripAdvisor August 2014. I predicted it to close due to food and service. Some reviews spoke well of the place others saw the same faults I reported. I would have enjoyed having a good restaurant so nearby.

Used to be pretty good, but has really gone downhill. Staff not friendly, food not very good. Have eaten here probably half dozen times since they opened. Each time a little more disappointed to the point we now have decided not to go back.
