We have been to Japanese Steak Houses before, and this one was probably my least favorite. To start, they apparently had a problem with their liquor license, so we could not purchase alcohol. The rest of the meal was just okay - the "show" of...More

Honestly, a high school class could take this place on and conduct a semester long class here with all of the dirt and grime located on the furniture and carpets. When we called to make a reservation the gentleman said that they had lost their...More

Kobe's was dirty, did not appear that they washed or vacuumed the floors in a long time. Everything was old and outdated. The staff was cold/bored with their work. Food was low quality and all served in plastic bowls, plastic cups et. They do not...More

A must while in Hawaii. Love the food! The chefs are very good and put on a good show. The drinks are good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Went to Costco to get a gift card to save some money.

We love Japanese Steak Houses but this place was very ordinary. Super dark inside and in need of a deep cleaning. The food was merely OK, we didn't leave feeling satisfied especially considering what we spent. I would not recommend it.

Don't want to pay a lot for Benihana, right around the corner is Kobe. They offer the same style food for less price. We always feel welcome here. Ask for Kamaaina rate as well if you live here. I do think they can offer more...More
