Japanese
Here at the "KOBE", we carry on the ancient art of teppanyaki - hibachi style cooking, in authentic Japanese country-inn ambiance.
The word "KOBE" suggests to the gourmet the ultimate in the finest beef, raised on delicacies, and gently massaged to perfection.

Watch....as we lovingly prepare the tenderest steak, the freshest seafood, free-range chicken, and garden fresh vegatables....all before your very eyes in true Japanese style.

Great food and lots of fun. Only problem waitress checks once and you don’t really see again. Soda had 90% ice and charged $4 for it.

Dining was great. Only complaint was the woman next to me with terrible table etiquette. Her elbow came into my personal space too many times to count. It would be nice if there was slightly more space between seats.

The chefs are fun to watch, engage the customers and create a great show with knife’s, food and fire!
We had the “Emperor’s Feast”, and the food was amazing tasting and quite plentiful with beef filet, chicken breast and prawns.

I thought it was over priced for the food we got. I was still hungry after. We brought out of town guest to Kobe’s to experience a show of throwing the knives and some fun. None of this happened it was dull and not very exciting. I was not happy when I left. It is overrated! Will not go back or recommend.

Too bad it is one of the very few places for Tepanyaki. With that, comes high prices making it not such a good price-performance place.

We can only afford it once a year, for very special occasions.

Staff was great, food was great, experience was great, but I don’t understand the prices. We had the most expensive bill at the table yet we all basically ate the same meal.

We love the meat selection and seafood selections. all we like to say is that the servings of vegetable is pretty small when you are spending over $200 for a date night. would be nice to see larger protions of vegetables in the early stages of the night.

Also i'd like to say that our table reservation was for 7:30 pm and we didnt get seated till 8 pm so it was making the kids a little restless as we came hungry!!

I lost my diamond ring in the lounge and did not notice until we got upstairs. I returned to the lounge and Al and the other staff and patrons helped me look. No luck. After dinner we returned to the lounge. As ai was writing down my contact info, Al returned to our table with my ring. Some honest, kind soul had turned it in at the bar. Thanks to everyone who made my evening a total success,

This was my first experience at a tepinyaki resturant, I have waited 18 years to get to one. And I am so glad I waited. This was the best dining experience I have ever had. The food was top notch, the service was amazing and the atmosphere was perfect.

Great place for a date, or even for the whole family!
Could be considered pricey, but you definitely pay for what you get! The food is 10/10!

One of my favorite restaurants in Vancouver. Fun and exciting with amazing food.
The one and only downfall I notice is the tight seating. For most of the seats, once you sit down your almost stuck there till your done because it's tough to get out. The reason it's not a big deal to me though is because the show and food are so amazing that I find I don't want to get up to go to the washroom, etc. Absolutely amazing restaurant!

Great experience and dinner out - staff were great - food is delicious... Only negative is that they changed the recipe on the ginger dipping sauce to something that is not very good at all. Other than that - it’s a great dining option

Amazing dinner, great service! Our serve ensured we had everything we needed from drinks to rice. Food was cooked to perfection. Scallops to die for! We have been several times, but this time was the best.

The food was excellent and the service was prompt but we were disappointed with the energy of the cook as we had heard it was quite a fun experience with tricks etc that was a big reason we chose to go! We were sat with an energetic group and we had a great time but the Kobe EXPERIENCE was not what we had been told about!

Dinner and Service was great! The only thing I graded low was they squished you in like sardines on the top floor. My bf and the guy beside him both sat at the corner and had to share one spot. Also there was no room to get out to walk behind the row of people at your table (everyone would have had to get up to allow you to get out).

Came for my boyfriends birthday and the chef as well as other waiting staff were very accommodating to my dairy allergy!

Staff were super friendly and we had a great time :)
