Our waitress was outstanding!! The sushi was average and our main reason for going - the scallops - were nonexistent. Even though we called to see if they were available and were told they always have them .... by 6:00pm they were out. A very...More

The man cooking our food was great, he made the meal very entertaining. Large portions. It all tasted good except I wasn't a big fan of the soup.

On a scale of one to ten I would give this place an 8. The value is the only issue. Yes the food is good but slightly overpriced. I did enjoy it and would go back again.

Fresh everything! Love the variety and there are other options. For $9.99 it doesn't get any cheaper. Especially for Sushi.

We like to leave good reviews; however, this restaurant seems to be desperate for income. Maybe I was assuming it would be a bit nicer, a bit more classy/upscale as opposed to disco ball lights, video gaming machines, and less than clean environment. Our food...More

We have always enjoyed going to Kobe. Our children enjoy the show too. I would say the level of experience there definitely is affected by the chef though. The last one we had was just ok and there must have been some miscommunication because the...More
