We are huge fans of Kobe in Biddeford but not this place. Tonight the chef completely overcooked our food (chicken, scallops and swordfish) and forgot my meat. He got the meat I ordered and cooked on top of burnt food. It made my chicken taste...More

My roommate and I got takeout from here a few nights ago. Overall, the food was fine. Not great, not terrible. However, I’ve ordered a copious amount of pad Thai in my life and never has it ever been made with tomatoes and broccoli. The...More
