Celebrated a special day at Kobe Jones with a lobster degustation menu. The location (King St Whaf) is conveniently close to Darling Harbour and the views of the harbour is just amazing! The staff were very friendly and service was relatively quick. The food tastes great as they look. It was a real degustation with several dishes on the list and generous serving. It was a bit pricey but was good value for money and an amazing dining experience.

Kobe Jones offered a 50% off set menu for the month of March. We tried their Nichibotsu (Sunset) menu for $45 per head, which was perfect.

10 courses with fresh and tasty dishes. Their best is their signature dish - Flaming #1 Special. Crunchy Roll & Saikou Roll are also great sushi though taste very similar. The spicy seafood salad is a bit too spicy for my liking (the only dish I cannot finish). Then followed by calamari, chicken and beef, they are all good protein food. Finished with new York cheesecake which is not typical Japanese but it was quite yummy.

I have tried many different set menus in Kobe Jones. I found this Sunset menu the best value. Some of the other menus are too small in servings, especially the 8-course Yugen menu. That time I ended up going to McDonalds for extra food. The other menus which contain lobsters are also very average as their lobsters are frozen ones which do not have much taste.

Can't beat the ambient of the restaurant. Looking over the boats and piers and Darling Harbour which is pretty romantic. The easiest way to get to this restaurant is by taxi or by train as there is very limited street parking. Otherwise park at the Wilson car park at Erskine Street which offers $19 flat evening rate and the car park is only 2 streets away.

If you haven't tried Kobe Jones before, definitely worth a try. Look out for their special promotions or groupon vouchers which yield the best value.

I wanted to like this place, but ultimately I don't have a great deal of positive things to say. The food was average, not bad but certainly not really Japanese at all (other than the fact they had some sushi on the menu). What we did have was ok, but again, nothing great. The waiter misunderstood our order too, and we didn't end up with the right meals. The soft shell crab ended up repeating on me the next day.

However, the views are great and the ambience is nice, so perhaps if you went for a cocktail and to just enjoy the views it may be a better experience. The staff were fine, but not very attentive.
