“Outstanding Japanese food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Dined here recently as part of a small birthday party group. The food is flawless, huge variety and great flavors. The seafood was so fresh. As it was a party some great quality saka was also tried. The atmosphere was perfect and everyone had a great time. For an increased Japanese feeling and for fun some of our group even tried on some of the many traditional Japanese costumes they have on stand-by. Will definately return and recommend. Well done to all involved.

“Excellent Japanese food in Maenam”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Having visited Kobori various times, the restaurant is very consistent with quality and taste. A good and comprehensive menu and excellent help from the staff make it interesting and fun to order.
The foo is very well presented and delivered without too much waiting. It's always worthwhile checking put the daily specials.
Very good food, very tasty and nicely priced, it's well worth a visit and experience the, in my opinion, best Japanese restaurant on Samui!

“Outstanding Japanese food”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I went there yesterday and it was absolutely outstanding. My girlfriend is Japanese and typically very skeptical of Japanese food outside of Japan. However, Kobori is run by a Japanese team and so just like eating in Japan :-) We had three dishes: nigiri sushi deluxe (salmon,tuna,scallops,shrimp),California roll, and Tonkatsu. The sushi was super tasty with proper sushi rice (rare to find outside of Japan), which really brings out the taste of the fish. The same is true of the California role, which had a lot of flavor and not too much rice.
The Tonkatsu was really crispy and the meat quite juicy!

Combine the great food with very attentive service and it really makes for a great dinner.

The prices are also very reasonable and the cost per person is about the same as eating out in any other restaurant in ko samui (unless you compare to phad Thai).

Definitely a restaurant we'll stop by again this week!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Went here tonight for dinner.
Amazing service. Staff are very attentive to your needs and always manage to go one step further.
Went through each dish with us and even taught my partner how to eat a certain dish that he hadn't tried before.
Just amazing. Must try.
