Don't want to pay a lot for Benihana, right around the corner is Kobe. They offer the same style food for less price. We always feel welcome here. Ask for Kamaaina rate as well if you live here. I do think they can offer more vegetables in their selection but it's not bad. They do the typical show with the... More

This was a great hibachi style restaurant. The food was great! You may want to make a reservation. The restaurant offers valet parking which you may want to take advantage of due to the fact that the area is very busy and nearly impossible to find a place to park.

We had a great experience celebrating Valentine's Day here. We were seated immediately and given validation for our parking before we left. The chef was personable and attentive to our requests to cook the Lobster and Scallops lightly. We would come back here again for dinner when in Hawaii.

Traditional Kobe style teppanyaki cooked right in front of you, fast and fresh with a few good tricks thrown in by the chef (as they do). you don't need to order a lot of food, it is filling even though you may think not, well worth a visit.

We had heard nothing but rave reviews about Kobe. Upon arrival I thought I was being ushered into the garage. The sandwich board was standing against the reception desk and the receptionist seemed to be overwhelmed with two people. We were seated next to a table with two screaming kids. The parents made no move to quiet them. Upon reading... More

Ok, so it's been 38 years since we were there last. We were given a gift card so we decided to do the sunset special. Good price for what you get. The outside of the building hasn't had anything done to it in all of these years. Once inside, you smell rancid oil. It's not very appealingly. Our chef Cory,... More

Waitress was good and attentive, Drinks were good and the Cook put on a good show. That's all I can say about the good. Food was bland - not enough salt used. Someone mentioned it and response was 'some people don't like so much salt in their food, so we tend to undersalt'. Which is a good response except there... More

Took some friends who are lifelong locals. Turns out this was their FIRST experience. Dinner was a grand success. Great entertainment. Might want to avoid the steak. Everything else was good, staff friendly, and chef very skilled.

Kobe Steak House really does a superb job in entertainment/meal preparation and flavor! The chefs are extremely talented and adept at food preparation. Don't let the exterior fool you - as the you will love the interior!
