I have eaten at the front part of the restaurant and at the rear where the fancy show is and find the food quality about the same. Ordering a combination from the menu gets you the same portion front or back. The steak is made to order and pretty well prepared, but not really that flavorful. The vegetables and rice... More

This place has the best hibachi in the area. You're able to watch chef cook your food or sit down and have the food served. They also have a bar to sit at and the staff is warm and welcoming.

Just completed my 4th visit to Kobe. Still good food at a reasonable price. However when you walk through the door you are hit with a smell of mold that is unbearable.. I assume it's time to change the carpets. My advice, if you,love the food skip dine in and do take out

Food was average, chef had a shirt so wrinkled, that it could have just come from the bottom of a laundry basket and the interior needs a serious facelift!!
