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.
Fantastic food and service. Highly recommend choosing the banquets as it takes any hassle out of choosing what you want and all the food is wonderful. Also the scallops are amazing.

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.
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!
Food was very good and the menu was extensive. A friend has dietary restrictions and they were very helpful with menu suggestions. BYO was a plus but we were disappointed that it did not cover the bottle of Sake we also bough . I was told it was "BYO wine only" but I always thought Sake was rice based wine. Regardless, it was a lovely meal.
We were there on a Saturday night and although we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table it was well worth it. We had the Tokyo banquet, which was fantastic. The food was amazing, the service was great, we will definately be back!!!
