My wife and I went to this restraint 2 days after we got married on the beach at Oak Island. The experience we had here kept adding to the wonderful time we were having at the beach. And did I say the sushi was absolutely awesome!!!!!!

Exterior- um, well, you might think this place is closed. However, once you go inside, it's a clean, spacious, well decorated restaurant. Service is friendly and prompt, and the food is quite good- hearty portions, as well! If you're looking for a great Asian meal, or are tired of lots of beach food, definitely make your way over here.

If you drove by this place and looked at the front you would think no one was ever there. Don't let this fool you --many people walk to the restaurant or order takeout. I have tried sushi in many places and I prefer sashimi. I have to say Peter, the owner and sushi chef, is the best when it comes... More

This was our second visit to Kobe Japanese. The food is superb. It is very quiet and comfortable to eat here. It appears to be a family run business. We had tempura vegetables and teriyaki chicken - just great.

Ok, so the facade of the place isn't inviting, but when you walk in, you are somewhat surprised. Ok, not really. It was empty. There's an overflow parking lot in the back, but I'm not sure it's needed. We were asked if we wanted to eat at the hibachi grills or just at the regular tables. We looked around and... More

We were kinda shocked to see how good this place is. We have been several times over the past few months and there is hardly anyone ever there. The food and service have been great each time.

My opinion of their hibachi dinners has changed for the better! Tonight we had a great time, a fun "show" and talk with chef, and wonderful dinners - chicken &beef for one and chicken and scallops for another. The shrimp appy was great as well! The pre dinner miso soup and salad were small but tasty. I also enjoyed a... More

This is probably the only sushi place in Oak Island - pretty decent sushi - the fish is fresh and the sushi is tasty.

Kobe has amazing sushi. We love the Valentine and Green Dragon rolls. And the seafood udon soup is delicious. The staff and sushi chef are really nice and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit.
