First, I will say that the food is traditional hibachi. It's good, not phenomenal. If the service was at least mediocre, I would say this place is a 4/5. However, I had to remove two stars for service. Even though other members in my party complained about the previous service of Kobe for various reasons, I really wanted hibachi and... More

Kobe is my favorite restaurant for Japanese hibachi cuisine. Be sure to ask for Chepo,who is their head chef. In addition to being a fantastic teppanyaki-style chef, he's also one of the most personable people there. I'd gone twice, and he's since remembered me. I'm usually in there a few times a month, and he always comes over for a... More

The four of us ordered the hibachi ribeye steak. It had an odour when placed on the grill and tasting it, it tasted sour and not what a good cut of steak should taste like. It was also full of fat that the chef did not remove but instead cut the whole steak into large chunks too big to eat... More

We went here with another couple to celebrate a birthday. We have all been to this type of hibachi steakhouse before but never had a bad experience like this one. First our chef was not friendly nor very entertaining. He actually complained about his pay and told us all of the "good cooks" go to dallas because of the pay.... More

Went with friends on my final evening in Austin. Our chef (which cooks your food right in front of you!) was really funny and talented! The food itself was really tasty. I ordered the meat trio so got to try a little bit of everything. Steak chicken and shrimp were cooked perfectly. The cost Overall is say it was a... More

If you live or are in the Austin area and you want some wonderful Japanese food, this is the place to come. I was disappointed with the atmosphere and the smell of the restaurant. It just didn't smell clean. The restaurant in Addison, TX is much better...and I guess that what I was expecting. The same quality atmosphere.

Good interaction between chef and table participants. The chefs slice, dice, cook right at your table. My granddaughters love it. Besides the usual Japanese steakhouse dinners, they also offer sushi. We had a fairly good server so she was attentive as to when we needed more adult beverages. The regular beverages like tea took a little longer.

This is the typical Japanese Steakhouse type meal and "entertainment".... the chefs make a big deal of "slicing and dicing" the food, putting it on fire, smiling at all the right times. When you're in a group, it can be fun. They make some good Hibachi steak entrees, and shrimp was good, too. However, one "trick" the chef likes to... More

This restaurant frustrates me a little because the chef's and food are so good but the table service is absolutely mediocre. Once your original drink orders are taken It's like pulling teeth to get more water or tea. Like I said I'm a little frustrated. It's the little things that matter in service.
