Nice dumplings, fantastic tuna, way too many salads, seems to be a trend at the moment. Good service, great wines, a little too noisy. Unusual seeing lots of non-Japanese staff/cooks in a top Japanese restaurant?More

Description
Kobe offers inspired Japanese flavours that have a contemporary twist. We use fresh local and Japanese ingredients which enhance the natural flavours of each dish. Sake is the drink of choice at Kobe, so "kampai" and unwind as you watch our chefs cook up a storm on the Teppanyaki grill.
