Dear diners, to reserve for groups of more than 8, please call the restaurant directly.
Having gained a loyal following in the city after opening in South Melbourne in 1987, Kobe Teppanyaki remains the most authentic Japanese teppanyaki eatery in Doncaster East, grilling up and throwing some of the most succulent cuts of meat, seafood and seasonal vegetables you’ll ever eat. Situated right on Blackburn Road this is a fantastic venue for birthdays and special events, though it’s always popular so book a spot while you can!
Firmly established as one of Melbourne’s most trusted Japanese restaurants, Kobe Teppanyaki opened in South Melbourne in 1987 and has since expanded to their stylish digs on Blackburn Road in Doncaster East. Guests get the real experience at Kobe Teppanyaki, where sleek tables encourage communal dining and the theatrical process of teppanyaki dining adds an element of entertainment to an already delicious meal. Of course there are superb Japanese beers, warm or cold sake and wine available, but the star of the show is the food.
Residents or visitors to Doncaster East are lucky to have a true taste of Tokyo in their midst at Kobe Teppanyaki on Blackburn Road. Choose from one of several extensive teppanyaki or a la carte banquet menus and be treated to a show as experienced chefs sizzle meat, seafood and vegetables on hot grills before your eyes and then throw it to you – hopefully avoiding your eyes and landing in your mouth. All novelty aside, the food is simply superb and hard to match in terms of Japanese dining in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, with rich miso, tatsuka age, teriyaki chicken, sakana, scallops, squid, salmon and tender beef all making an appearance on the huge menu.
Amazing and excellent service like always. Food fresh and very well presented. Served promptly and efficient staff. Highly recommended! Food portions are huge and well worth it!
We were very pleased with our visit to Kobe. Our chef Romeo was great, service good & food excellent. The surrondings were very pleasant as well. Well done.
Always a great experience. They were also excellent with my FODMAP issues, removing any garlic and replacing one of the entrees on the set menu so I didn't miss out. Very happy!
Food was outstanding, service was great, the atmosphere was the best and car parking was easy. We took our overseas guest and he said it was memorable and all round great experience
Excellent food, atmosphere, service, decor and choices. A fantastic evening with my partner and great to enjoy the company of other customers who were also enjoying their night out. All the staff were professional, friendly, accommodating and made for a great experience. We will definitely be back - thankyou Kobe Teppanyaki.
The restaurant was very accommodating I booked for lunch with 5 ppm and brought 8 ppl and then another turned up half an hour late and they pulled up another chair for him to. They were very prompt and polite, very attentive topping up our water and tea and happy to cater to gluten free friends explaining their meal and what has been used. The food was very fresh and tasty everyone was happy with their meal. Would definitely recommend and go back.
We loved Kobe! They accommodated perfectly for food intolerances and allergies as well as brilliant service and entertainment. The food tasted fresh, and flavoursome and the ambiance was family friendly for those wishing to take their kids. It may cost a little more than a meal at some restaurants however you most definitely get value for money! I plan another trip to Kobe with my kids next time as I tried it out first with a friend.
Brilliant teppanyaki chef, competent confident knew his food and cooked it with love & flare. We had a great night with friends we treasure.. Thank you Kobe Teppanyaki xx
Went there for dinner and had the Kobe Teppanyaki buffet. The cook was great, very funny and skilled. All the food was great and will definitely go back!
Great venue and service. John was so engaging he had my 20 year old niece (very fussy eater) eating the prawn heads with relish. My husband & I would definitely go back but next time we will go to the a la carte section. Last night was really to give two youngsters a great experience.
