Quick service. Huge portions. Excellent sauces. I make three meals from one order of fried rice with chicken. Live out of state but in Canton/Waynesville area every month. Go there every month.

The bride and I usually share one of the large combo plates which is always enough for two people. You can get a variety of all meats served and the food always leaves a good taste in my mouth for the price.

We arrived at a good time (lunch on a sunday) so we were seated very quickly. Several in our group hadn't been here in a long while. Those of us who'd been here before all agreed it was better than we'd remembered. The food was all quite good (though the carrots are a bit too sweet and overcooked), with good... More

IMHO, this is the best Japanese style food in the area. I have never dined in but I get to go orders a lot. Nice portion and very tasty. Prefer this one to others of the like.

We eat here at least twice a month and always enjoy the meal. The Hibachi shrimp and the Teriyaki beef and broccoli dishes are among our faves. The jumbo shrimp tempura appetizer comes with tempura veggies too and is almost a meal in itself. The service is wonderful and they even accommodate my request for honey for my green tea!

The wife and I have eaten here many times and have never walked out not satisfied. Service has always been good. Have eaten at other Kobe Express Restaurants but this one seemed to be better than the others.

Not bad, not great. One of the best egg rolls I've eaten anywhere. Most entrees are good, but very overpriced for what they are. It also seems that the owner must have a large carrot farm somewhere nearby, because everything on the menu is seemingly smothered with carrots.
