Kobe Hibachi Grill & Sushi Bar headed by Chris Liao offers up something very unique in the city of Roswell and it’s safe to say they already have a fan base. Mr. Liao is only one of a few hands-on owners who specialize in sushi, Hibachi, hospitality & management respectively. The most senior owner has around 15 years in the business and knows their way around a Hibachi grill.
The restaurant boasts an impressive 10 Hibachi grills, surrounded by 5 stations with a Japanese, a Thai and a Chinese chef at the helm supplying the taste, as well as the experience. Kobe also has seating at the sushi bar and seating in the dining area if you prefer a little more privacy.
Just like the Hibachi menu, Kobe has a sushi menu that holds a very strong presence which is very approachable but just as daring. Everything from Unagi (eel), for the novices, to Ikura (salmon roe), for the fish lovers, is served and come in a variety of styles.
Of course, traditional sushi styles like rolls, sashimi, nigiri and temaki are staples here but Kobe also offers unique sushi fare like the Crazy Monkey Roll: fried banana, sticky rice, avocado, cucumber, soy paper and a fresh banana which is slightly caramelized and served with a tangy, sweet sauce with whipped cream. If you’ve never had sushi for dessert, the unique Crazy Monkey Roll is highly recommended. There are around 50 different rolls, 15 sushi specials and 5 sushi combos expertly crafted in a countless number of styles. It’s good to know that the tuna and salmon is some of the freshest in town as well.
An assortment of fish, shellfish, steak, salmon, scallops, lobster, chicken and shrimp can be had at any one of the Hibachi grills. In addition, tempuras, soups, salads, appetizers, a selection of noodles and Chinese style fried rice.
Kobe also does lunch in a very Japanese way: the traditional bento box. Teriyaki chicken, beef and salmon are the gold standards but shrimp tempura, sashimi and chicken katsu are offered as well. The bento box lunch is served with miso soup, vegetable tempura, 4 pieces of California roll, edamame and rice, all within a bento box. There’s also daily lunch specials served Monday through Thursday for $8.25. Shrimp on Monday, Teriyaki Beef on Tuesday, Salmon on Wednesday and Chicken on Thursday.
As if that wasn’t enough, Kobe has something else for your seafood craving. Lobster, snow crab, whole shrimp, craw fish, clams, mussels and sausage boils are all sold by the half and full pound. The flavor is there as Kobe constructs their own classic, Cajun taste profiles. Each boil can come in your choice of original Cajun style, garlic butter or lemon pepper seasoning with adjustable levels of piquancy. Also, chicken wings just in case you want chicken wings.
Kobe Steak House & Sushi Bar serves beer, red wine, white wine and premium sake. The first round of sake bombs are on the house Monday through Thursday to go with your evening karaoke. Kobe hosts’ birthdays (w/ cheesecake), company lunch meetings and dinner parties of 15-20 so long as they’re notified in the morning the same day to allow for proper accommodations.
If you want dinner and a show, or just something good to eat, Kobe’s focus is to serve you outstanding Japanese cuisine and share their authentic Hibachi cooking culture and sushi expertise with you.
