My family and I order take out from here every month or so. The hibachi combination plates are pretty tasty, and they have great shrimp sauce and mustard sauce. The prices are very reasonable, and the gentleman that does all the cooking is always really friendly. Decent Crab Rangoon, too.

You can't go wrong with the "whole day special!" We longer live in the area, but every time I have to go to the Harbison/Irmo area I at least bring food home from Kobe Express!

I've not actually eaten in the restaurant but my coworkers and I order carryout from here for lunch quite often. Their bowls are wonderful and so are the dumplings. I've also had the sushi which is good and fresh. The quality is above most carryout Asian restaurants.

I got the all day special for $8 with a drink and it was a to go plate full of food. I got 2 cups of white sauce a decent sized drink. I think the food is better than Tokyo Grill and it's cheaper. Not to mention it's closer to where I live. I'll be going back.

I was excited to see Japanese restaurant, so I ducked in for late lunch. Should have ducked right back out when I saw it was more of a Chinese restaurant. I threw caution to the wind, I won't be doing that again. The best thing I ordered was the seaweed salad. The salmon plate if it had a total of... More

You can get a quick, inexpensive meal at this Kobe Express. It’ll be satisfactory, but don’t expect anything special. I found the chicken teriyaki bowl OK, though very salty. I’ll try something else next time, probably one of the $7.50 sushi platters. The menu at this place looks plenty diversified, and nothing dents your wallet too deeply. The lunch specials... More

Hands down the tastiest teriyaki chicken bowl in Irmo. The sauce is great and the chicken is not fatty. Good size portion for the price. Quick and friendly service. I enjoy lunch from here when I am working. Family owned and operated. They want to make you happy!

I enjoyed this small restaurant located in the Kroger shopping center. The food is very good. I thought it was of good value. Clean restaurant-no complaints from me.

While in the area I decided to stop by and try this place out. Similar restaurants in the area provide a decent amount of food for the money, not this place. I ordered the "every day special" which includes teriyaki chicken, hibachi shrimp, rice and veggies. The food barely filled an 8 inch partitioned plate. I've never seen so little... More

Sometimes they can get really busy but for the most part I get my order super quick. The price and quality of food are hard to beat anywhere else. I like to call in an order for pick up or I can place one and then pick stuff quick from Kroger or the Pet Supply store while they cook it.
