I wanted a spicy chicken and asked the waitress for the same. What she suggested was sugary sweet but no spice. The chicken was heavily breaded with lots of sweet, sugary red sauce. Everything else on the plate was very very bland. I'm no expert, but I went to this resturaunt with three other friends and we were all disappointed.... More

Judy, we're disappointed to see that you didn't receive what you were looking for. Our staff makes excellent suggestions, but it can be hard to pinpoint exactly what someone is looking for. Asking for a "spicy chicken" is unusual, and we did our best to accommodate you. Best, Kiky - General Manager More

It was a random Sunday evening when my wife and I decided we wanted sushi. By the time we got there it was 8:00 and I was worried since it was later in the day the service wouldn't be as good. I was wrong in fact it was probably the best time I have had. Great idea for date night.

Great prices on happy hour drinks and appetizers at the bar until 6:00 p.m. I think I had 3 craft beers and two appetizers and it was around $13.

After traveling these last few years, I realize how difficult it is to find even good sushi. The real surprise is to find not only good but outstanding sushi in the old west.

I was impressed, this place had quality sushi, and I enjoyed it.

If you like sushi, good place to go. I was not impressed with menu selection but I also do not care for fish. Menu seemed a little confusing and not a wide selection. Food was average.

Description
As the first Japanese steakhouse to open in North Dakota, Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar introduced not only traditional Japanese food, such as sushi and tempura, but also an ancient style of Japanese cuisine, Teppanyaki, aimed at bringing the Japanese eating experience closer to Bismarck's heart. Kobe's is known by locals and visitors alike as the hip place to dine in, not only because of the food, but also because of the comfortable atmosphere and personable staff. Our guests share tables surrounding a large hot plate, where theatrical Japanese chefs whirl, twirl, juggle, flip and flame raw ingredients into delectable meals. We don't just serve the best quality of food here, we serve the heart of Japanese hospitality. Our chefs are professional and interactive, making sure that your experience is always our top priority. Whether you're joining us for lunch with co-workers, dinner with the family or a special bachelorette party, there's something here for everyone to enjoy. Come experience a fun atmosphere with amazing food at Kobe's Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar!
