Kobe Won The Dining Award for Best Japanese Restaurant by Readers of “Orlando Weekly”

Kobe Japanese Steakhouse is pleased to announce that we’ve won the 2018 “Orlando Weekly” Reader’s Choice Award for Best Japanese Restaurant. This marks the eighth consecutive year our restaurant has won the award. We at Kobe take great pride in our cuisine, so this award is an honor to us all. We thank all the readers of “Orlando Weekly” who selected Kobe as their favorite Japanese restaurant as well as all the folks who’ve visited our establishments this year. Since Kobe Japanese Steakhouse opened its doors in 1984, we’ve worked hard to create the best teppanyaki dining experience in Florida. Our goal is to win the Reader’s Choice Award every year. To achieve that, we’ll continue to refine our craft of serving up delicious wagyu beef straight from the iron griddle.

We believe that what makes Kobe Japanese Steakhouse successful is our tireless pursuit of fun and good food. Visitors to Kobe know great teppanyaki is more than just savory meat, noodles, and vegetables sliced and tossed to the sound of steam; it’s a performance. With their fast knives and bursts of fire, our chefs make the spectacle of cooking as memorable as the food itself. Ask your Kobe chef to prepare some teriyaki chicken, and watch the knives turn raw ingredients into a plate of bronzed, glistening meat and hot noodles in minutes. Our teppanyaki entrees include shrimp, scallops, chicken, sirloin steak, and many other dishes, each served with rice, noodles, vegetables, onion soup, and a salad. If you’ve never been to Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, now is your chance to find out why we’ve won the “Orlando Weekly” Reader’s Choice Award every year since 2011.

In addition to great teppanyaki, Kobe serves up a tasty slew of sushi. We have dozens of sushi rolls, including crispy shrimp rolls with cucumber and avocado, rainbow rolls decked in salmon and whitefish, and red dragon rolls featuring spicy mayo and tempura flakes. We also serve succulent nigiri and sashimi with octopus, smoked salmon, and many other types of seafood. For dessert, Kobe has such delectable dishes as fried ice cream and chocolate mousse cake. Wash the meal down with our sake or plum wine, or enjoy a Mai Tai for a fruity finish to your night. We aren’t content until every guest leaves satisfied.

Kobe Japanese Steakhouse has 11 locations throughout Central and West Coast Florida. That includes seven in the Orlando area and four in Tampa. Separated from the main restaurant, our private banquet rooms can seat 20 to 180 guests depending on capacity, and each table has a personal chef who will prepare your meals in front of you. We also have preset banquet menus we can customize with you to fit your budget. With each visit to Kobe Japanese Steakhouse, you can receive Kobe Rewards points toward a $10 Kobe Reward Voucher. We even have a Kobe Reward mobile app to simplify the process. If you want a personal chef or server the next time you stop by, just contact a priority seating representative or use our online seating tool.

Readers of “Orlando Weekly” will be pleased to know Kobe is expanding to a new venue in St. Petersburg, Florida. We hope to see you there. Also, visitors to Kobe International Drive in Orlando can try out our newest idea: Maihana Asian Cuisine. More intimate than a typical visit, this two-person style of dining lets you enjoy your spicy pork belly teriyaki, mango sushi rolls, and other unforgettable dishes in an upscale atmosphere. Our goal at Kobe Japanese Steakhouse is to bring you the best teppanyaki and sushi for many years to come. Once more, we thank the readers of “Orlando Weekly” for making our job that much more satisfying.
