About Kobe Teppanyaki
Dear diners, to reserve for groups of more than 8, please call the restaurant directly.

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.
Excellent fun experience. Waitress was very helpful and informed re food intolerance. Delicious fresh food cooked to healthy perfection Thank you for a delightful afternoon.
Our party of 8 all had a great time. Food was delicious. Johnny the cook was entertaining and lots of fun. We'll come back again. It was our first time, but was recommended highly
Had teppenyaki and it was fantastic. Added scallops which were absolutely amazing along with the rest of the food. Chef was great and a really nice guy - had a great time there.
Sensational quality & quantity Teppanyaki banquet feasts served with stylist flair & fun by master chefs in a lovely space. Highly recommended for all ages
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!!!
Really great. Our first time here but we will be back. The food was excellent and service quiet and efficient. The decor is relaxing with plenty of room between tables and although it was busy there was not a lot of noise. Delightful..
Kobe Teppanyaki is a great restaurant we are regulars at the hot plate! Great food and great fun, Kid friendly and staff were all lovely
Food was good and fresh. Was really quiet for a Friday night which was good because it meant that my companion and I could talk pretty freely, don't think it is normally like that. Chef did a good job and cooked the food well. Only suggestion is to cut the prawn in half before serving to make it easier for the eater.
excellent service, great food, a lot of fun was had by all. Made for a great night by all. Highly recommend best teppanyaki we have ever tasted, will be coming back again for sure.
Good fun, our 3 and 6yr olds enjoyed as did hubby and I. Actually felt like too much food - 2 adult set menus and 2 kids menus ... not sure if you can choose not to have 1 of the kids meals, might be worth asking. Would go again.
Really wonderful night. Great food and excellent service. Chef was very skilled, and handled cooking for the single vegetarian in our group with no fuss. Will be back again in the future
Quality and taste excellent, great service always feel comfortable. Would have preferred quality chopsticks rather than disposable... We have had teppanyaki many times, chefs always fun. Opted for quiet a la carte dinner this time.
Fantastic chef Romeo was so fun and friendly. Good fresh food and a lovely staff. Loved our visit and would highly recommend to anyone can't wait to go back
Great place, the kids really enjoyed the interaction with the chef and can't wait to get back. The food and service was great, car parking is difficult though
Food delicious. Service great. However, did not get the crispy Prawn legs (they cooked them and took them away) and no display of chopping the egg omelette. Also got soup half way through our main meal and salad arrived just before desserts.
excellent food and excellent service. Been here a few times now - certainly one of the better ones in the area. Prices are fair for what you get.
Great food Great atmosphere Great service. Went here for a birthday dinner with family kids were extremely entertained by our wonderful chef definitely a night to remember Thankyou
Not something I was looking forward to but have to say we all enjoyed a great evening to celebrate our sons birthday, lovely food and good service.
Had teppanyaki so it was entertainment plus food. Our chef was fun & experienced. Delicious food and good portion sizes. Happily recommend this restaurant & will return.
All the food was amazing and waitress was lovely and very helpful with the menu. Drinks were also nice and cold. We will definitely be going back!
Our table was ready when we arrived. Was a great experience and awesome food service was quick! Highly recommend...also plenty of parking under restaurant. Would go back
Very nice food and good service. Not that busy but staff were friendly and courteous. Could have done more to control the unruly children running amok which spoilt an otherwise enjoyable evening
This is a pretty standard teppanyaki restaurant, but the staff are very good at what they do. Service was quick, and ages 8-74 all had fun.
Fantastic place. Great service, wonderful food & the chef was entertaining whilst he cooked. Highly recommend it for an excellent night out. We'll be back again!
Great experience Highly recommend to anyone wanting a little bit fun Amazing staff and fantastic food You will not be coming home hungry that's for sure
The chef was amazing! Really good fun for all diners, service was good throughout and everyone in the restaurant seemed to be having lots of fun!
Lovely banquet - all the food fantastic - too much in the end Staff were great and we will definitely go back again sometime soon
Great experience, food and service was brilliant. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a good night out. Fried chicken was something special. Try the wine
The food was absolutely amazing! There was so much flavour! The Teppanyaki chef was hilarious also! My partner and I will definitely go back again!
Fantastic night, so much fun even if I ended up with rice all over me haha amazing food, great service, lovely staff & delicious cocktails!
The food was great and all the staff were friendly. Thanks to chef Howard for a fun night. The kids enjoyed their first teppanyaki experience.
Took some friends who enjoyed the Kobe experience for the first time. Good food and staff were friendly I Would recommend this restaurant and it is BYO as well.
Great food. But being asked to tip the chef at the time to pay, was a little strange... I did, and I wonder if the chef actually received it...
Great night out...we decided to go with he Kobe Set for $58pp and found this to be a great option. We did not require additional items to be ordered.👍
Great night out with family. Teppanyaki was lots of fun and the food was delicious. Look forward to returning again in the future. Thanks John and the team.
Nice food, and pleasing to see the sushi and sashimi being made fresh as ordered. Wait staff were quick, attentive and efficient. Looking forward to going back again
Staff very friendly and a good selection on the menu. The food was fresh and very well presented. We went as a group and everyone enjoyed their meal.
An enjoyable ambience providing an authentic japanese menu with extensive menu choices. The a la carte was excellent, as was the waiting staff. Will return for sure.
Quite good food. Price still ok, a little expensive for the best meal. Service ok. I do not like the watered coke. And the drink is expensive.
Great fun and yummy food. Had Tokyo set menu tepanyaki. Chef was great and staff friendly. Food was good quality and beautifully cooked. Will go again!
We had a delicious and entertaining teppanyaki session. Great to do with friends. Have also enjoyed dining in the restaurant previously. Will definitely be back soon!
Great chef. Good food and good service. Never any trouble to please and cater to our needs. Recommend highly the teppanyaki with a lot of choices.
Food excellent ,service good ,but seating near to entrance a bit cool from ever opening front door by children in and out of adjacent facility .
Service & food really good, has been better on other occasions, bir we can't be perfect all the time! M m m m m thanks
Wonderful Teppanyaki experience. Food fresh and John our chef was amazing - the kids loved it. Thanks for a wonderful experience. Will be back again
Food was absolutely fantastic. Service was maybe a little bit rushed. Food came too quick - we were in and out in about 90 mins.
