Normally we visit House of Kobe in Merrillville, which has been good and dependable. Unfortunately, House of Kobe in Schererville is quite different. The entire place is filthy (I'm surprised the Health Department has not gotten involved), the service was awful, and the food tasted like it had been stored in a musty basement. Our server was slow, did not... More

The service is prompt and friendly. However the food is so so and the typical cooking show is amateurish. The filet mignon does not look like one and doesn't taste like it. Feels like they try to compensate with quantity of food.

Family and friends watched the "chef" prepare dinner right at the table. It was worth the show. I would go back.

Going to House of Kobe - for a lot of people I know living in this area - is somewhat of an event, and for pretty good reason: it's basically Northwest Indiana's answer to Benihana. It's definitely on the much pricier side, but when you go for the hibachi grill, you get plenty of food with your meal. There's also... More

We went there with 4 pouty teenagers and 4 adults after a very long graduation afternoon. They were fully engaged by the Japanese cooks who spun cleavers and spatulas. Lots of laughs and surprisingly first-rate food in an Indiana suburb. One problem with an order which came with a glaze that was not clearly defined on the menu.

Really neat place. We don't go here all the time but the boys loved watching the chefs cook I front of them. The food was really good. We will definitely go to House of Kobe again soon.

Haven't been there in years. Now I remember why. Sushi was a step above what you get at the grocery, and twice the price. My wife and I don't get to eat dinner together very often, and we didn't tonight either, since my wife's meal was brought to the table almost 10 minutes after mine.

I read the reviews on this place and had my concerns, I'm glad we decided to go, yesterday was our second visit in the last couple of weeks. Both times we were there for early dinner, 4:30pm for the hibachi grill. Your seated immediately if your one of the first guests, after that you have to wait until more people... More

This is my second visit here, as the first was OK, but with reviews all over the spectrum, I decided it was probably hit or miss, but that perhaps they were straightening out their problems. Not so. Food was mediocre, but the HUGE turn-off was dirty plates. Literally, something had been through the dishwasher and the plates needed to be... More
