Kobe Japanese Steak House1042 Alberni Street, Vancouver
Terrible In Every Way
Submitted Friday, July 9, 2010 - 1:51pm [Dine in]

Overrated and overpriced. I ordered a Hibachi Beef. $39.95. It's no better than an overcooked slab of meat from Costco. It was chewy and tasteless. Ordered a Steak & Lobster. $54.95. Steak was also tough, lacking in any flavor. Lobster was overcooked and tasted like kerosene. Everything was basically drowned in teriyaki sauce and butter to disguise the lack of flavor. The so-called "chefs" are laughable. They demonstrate no skill whatsoever. Service is just as lousy. Ordered a big beer to share. It took forever to receive one glass, and just as long to get the second glass.

To add insult to injury, they charge an auto 15% service charge. For two people! For terrible food and terrible service. Absolutely will not return again ever. Stay away!

I don't understand the complaining about the prices! You get exactly what you pay for in this place, and it's definitely a good bang for your dollar. If you're willing to splurge, the lobster is worth every penny, especially on specials night! Bin 941 charges $12 for a half pound of teeny tiny shrunken mussels. Banana Leaf changes the same for a full pound of plump and succulent mussels (which, btw, is my absolute favorite dish ever). You do the math.

If you want McDonald's prices, then go to McDonald's. But if you want fabulous seafood that isn't going to set you back a million dollars, this place is it.
