I was lucky enough to be one of their very first customers when they first opened (back in '98 as I recall) and have been happily going back ever since! The food is always excellent, the service is first class, and the staff is always friendly and welcoming! They are not only one of the best restaurants in The Woodlands, but also in the entire greater Houston area! The portions are very robust, and you will be taking the leftovers home if you start with a delicious special roll as an appetizer! If you have not been here, you are missing out!
Interesting atmosphere if youve never been, after a couple of times it gets a little redundant. Sushi is solid and advice good. Kids love the fried rice & we often get it to go.
Cool beans all the time
Always love it. Sushi was great, service great, hibachi grill great.
Always great food and service. We come here often never recieved bad service.
Been going here forever, amazing food, fun, and the best fried rice in the Gulf Coast Area.
The absolute best hibachi style restaurant in the woodlands. I've been dining here for close to 20 years. And it's always fantastic
We are going tonight. I'll update my review afterwards. But I'm giving 5 stats for an engaged business owner who clearly reads their online reviews and responds to them. It means they care about their customers and take pride in their food and service. I expect my wife and I to have a great dinner. UPDATE: Our dinner was FABULOUS. We have been Benihana regulars and this place is by far better! Among the highlights: 1) Dinner at Benihana is usually a 2+ hour affair. We were not rushed at all at Kobe - the service was simply faster. Took about an hour. At Benihana you wait FOREVER for your chef to arrive. 2) The service was tops. We had prompt taking of our order, drink refills, and anything else we needed. 3) The quality was as good or better than anywhere else. Notably we ordered a vegetable tempura. Benihana's appear to be leftover or undesirable veggies. Kobe's were top tier and cooked perfectly. 4) Our table chef did excellent. At other places we have noted they cook items in an order that doesn't make sense. Our chef started the chicken first but then cooked shrimp and other fast cooking items while longer cooking items like chicken finished. This resulted in more people at the table getting their food quickly and kept food on everyone's plate. My wife is a shrimp eater and at other hibachi places she is left with an empty plate until last since shrimp cook fast. 5) Flavor - ingredients and seasoning were great. But we did note the food was salted a tiny bit too much. My recommendation for the owner: lower the salt content - patrons can always add salt. The mustard sauce was a good bit too salty and could be creamier with a hint more mustard. That's precious little to complain about tho! Everything else was really spot on. 6) Price. Our meal for two, with two mixed drinks, came in around $80. And we ordered what are usually "premium" dishes like seafood and filet instead of stand strip steak. Still thats a little less than what we pay elsewhere. The restaurant wasn't quite as "fancy" as Benihana. But hey - we went for a great meal and great service and that's what we got. If you aren't considering this place from what it looks like on the outside, you are missing out. But don't everyone pile on. We still want to be able to get a table on Friday and Saturday nights haha!!!
Good food, good friends but they can never make the chunk of white rice into my mouth lol
Hand Rolls were really good. Will be coming back.
We just went for my son's 13th birthday based on reviews I read. It was amazing. We had 6 people and there was a group of 4 that were at the same habatchi grill. We all had a great time!
Great food for good price. Great service. Love the entertainment.
Had a great lunch at the hibachi! It was yummy and our cook was funny.
So a last minute decision to eat Hibachi Monday Night Turned into a Great Experience! It was A slow Night... My Husband, our Three old Grandson and myself had our Very own Chef~ Manuel ~ He was Amazing, he had our Grandson in Awe and Delight throughout the dining Experience...The Food was Awesome ! Thanks to Our Chef for helping to create such A Wonderful Memory for Us All
My husband and I love this place. We've done both the hibachi show and regular dine in. Lunch pricing is very reasonable, the food is delicious, and we've always had a great experience with the staff.
Always sit at the hibachi! Love this place! -never leave hungry or disappointed.
