Haven't been to Kobe in a long time. So we thought we'd give a try again. Friday night and they are quite busy. To be expected. Managed to get a table and we were seated without having a lengthy wait. Our server was very nice. Took our order, and returned shortly there after with the tea. Volcano-hot as is typical... More

I came with a group of friends for a Friday evening and received great service and wonderful staff helping us. This location is small so if you want a seat a reservation is recommended. The music is quiet so you can hold regular volume conversations. We had sashimi bentos, sushi, california/french kiss/futomaki rolls, tempura, katsudon dinner, surf clam in ponzu... More

Sushi are fresh and tasty but unfortunately the order are very small. $45 only got us a snack size sushi for two. Salmon sushimi are cut into unusually small pieces. Too price for fast food place.

Have been enjoying the excellent food here for 18+ years. Always fresh, generous portion sizes and tasty. Love the Kobe for both eating in the restaurant and for take out. Best spicy tuna rolls! This is our favorite Japanese restaurant in Edmonton.

We had cooked sushi rolls, Tempura and chicken teriyaki and rice. All good tasting but very expensive for what you get.

If you are not in a hurry and can be patient when you are hungry, the food quality this restaurant offers is worth the wait. The atmosphere is dark and the tables quite plain but when the dishes arrive to your table all is forgotten because of the quality of the food.

I went here with a friend last night. I am very picky about Sushi and Kobe did not dissapointed. All the food that came out looked fabulous. I had the dashing dinner and got a seaweed salad instead of tossed everything was super fresh and tasty. The service was great. The venue is quite small so I would recommend reservations.... More

The food there has a lot of varieties, and the taste was good, but the seafood and sashimi were not as fresh as I experienced in other Japanese restaurants. In general it was a good experience, but a little expensive...I would like to give it a 3.7, but not available.

Family of 4 adults came for Family Day lunch. Service and food were excellent, and at an excellent price, for the quality and quantity of food. Self-serve salad and miso soup are included if you spend more than $9/person. Sushi rolls were beautifully prepared. Extensive menu which varies during the day. Very reasonable drink prices. The staff literally run to... More
