Came to Kobe jones last weekend for dinner - arrived early, place wasn't packed but had a decent amount of people in it. Very intimate setting and tables placed quite closely together up against the window with a lovely view of the river.

Ordered a plate of mixed sashimi and sushi, fried chicken, number one special, pork dumplings and a Philadelphia roll (not pictured).
Everything was super fresh and the sashimi melted in your mouth! All of the dishes came out relatively quick (bar the Philadelphia roll but it was well worth the wait). The soy sauce was also lovely! Everything was of very good quality and taste was great.

This place is a bit pricey but you definitely get what you pay for - would absolutely come back again. Service was amazing, staff were super attentive.

The food and the service at Kobe Jones was outstanding. Our waitress explained the menu and made suggestions suitable to our liking. We opted for a set menu which we could not fault, each dish was superb and was complemented by a lovely bottle of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. We would highly recommend Kobe Jones and cannot wait to return.

Was a bit hesitant due to reading some variable reviews, but my boyfriend and I both enjoyed the set menu! The view was nice, and the service was good. We are curious about the teppanyaki so might consider going back

Food was very tasty & a good deal on Firsttable. Only down side was when we wanted the bill we told the waitress we were needing to get going but she disappeared into the opposite restaurant which I’m guessing is different but ran by the same company? She didn’t return....we waited & waited so just left in the end. Ended up pulling together the correct money but they might of got a tip if they bothered to return.

Our waitress was amazing, explaining all the dishes and asking for feedback (I wish I got her name, she was outstanding). The food and cocktails were delicious, the dining room was lovely overlooking the river. I cannot recommend highly enough.

There was nothing particularly wrong with the meal however there was nothing particularly special about it either.
Our Son's rice came out at the start of the meal and his main followed well after our's arrived and only after prompting.
Yelling from patrons watching football at the bar next door meant the restaurant had the ambience of Bay 13 rather than an upscale Asian fusion restaurant
Had we been paying full price for this meal my disappointment would have been much greater, though we remain disappointed with the experience.
The final insult came when we had to prompt the waitress to deduct the 'First Table' discount even though this had been discussed by the manager when we were seated. This was both awkward and embarrassing.

Our night started off with a small hiccup because finding the restaurant was not as easy as we thought but one quick phone call to the lovely manager of Kobe Jones, John, and we were efficiently whisked over to their location and promptly escorted to our seats.
The interior was gorgeous and boasted leafy greenery hanging baskets with moody lighting and warm heating.
The walls were all clear class to give diners a pristine view across the river and the famous spurting Crown fire columns were near by for our viewing pleasure.
The menu boasted a large range and selection of Japanese fusion cuisine. With so many options such as a set mea, tasting plates or select as you wish items, it was overwhelming! But the staff took their time to answer our copious questions and we decided on the set menu ‘Nikki’ (Sunshine).
Starving, we looked dismissively at the long list of food included in our dinner and I admittedly was sceptical is whether or not I would find myself full by the end of the night.
The first few entree dishes were like any amazing entree. Too little and wishing for more! My personal favourite was the wagyu tartar. Cut razor think it melted in your mouth leaving you salivating for more.
As the dishes preceded to come it was an amazing flavour torpedo from start to finish.
Half way through the meal, the waitress came over to send her condolences as the Arctic crab leg had run out for the night! Initially giving us the option of crab gyoza, we rebuffed the idea as gyoza wasn’t our favourite dish. The chef was more than happy to offer another replacement and in the end, gave us both! Gyoza and meat skewers.
Thank you Kobe Jones for being such a wonderful and accomodating experience! I was definitely full afterwards and already can’t wait to go back!

This place never disappoints. We were greeted by John who was our waiter for the night. Totally charming. We tried his suggestions opting to change from the usual tasting plates and will definitely do it this way again. Only complaint was the food was so yummy we ate too much

The menu is extensive & to help simplify the decision making process, we ordered Kobe’s 9. The flavours and presentation of their food was sensational. The staff were extremely accommodating (pork gyoza & chicken Kara age were substituted for a non meat option). Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Kobe Jones. We sat in the outside section and had a lovely view at the waterfront. The food itself was delicious - we had the tasting platter, the wagyu beef and lobster tempura. Our stomachs were very satisfied by the end of it! We would definitely go back!

The location is great and it is interesting how the restaurant is divided in different parts, we sat in a lovely, intimate part with lots of plants and dark colours.
It was a bit slow to get us set up at our table with water and menu, but other than that, the staff was very mindful and attentive. The menu was very extensive, so much to choose from, signature dishes, rolls, set tasting menus etc... And ingredients are sustainably sourced.
We had rolls which were ok, and a tasting platter (photo) which was amazing with bursting flavours.
A great dining experience, thank you.

Excellent menu and service! Had a wonderful waitress named Jenna who knew the menu very well, with great recommendations and incredible knowledge on the food. The food was extremely fresh and brought an element to the table I had never experience before. The host had an excellent personality that made me not want to leave, we ended up staying for desserts and coffee. Great way to end our trip in Melbourne, we will be back our next visit to Australia! Thank you very much Kobe Jones

Kobe Jones was an enjoyable experience. They really do use quality ingredients and it shows in their dishes. If you like seafood and steak then you are in for a treat. They know how to make their dishes shine. Make sure you order their signature crab dish, it's delicious. Don't be shy when choosing for the menu, some dishes are literally mouth size so go a little nuts.
Enjoy

Perhaps because I am from the "Old School" hospitality industry my expectations may have been higher than that of the average customer. The service was very good, but I expected a little more direct attentiveness such as refilling of water and wine glasses (Fine Dining 101).
However, I do appreciate that there were a few other tables being served the degustation menu and only one waitstaff member designated to our section at the early hour we were there.
The majority of the food was exceptional apart from the seafood okonomiyaki, which was very claggy and overpowered by the excessive sauce and the Agadashi tofu, which was was tainted with the taste of oil that needed to be changed as well as being excessively oily.

If I had paid full price for the meal I would have been more vocal at the time but as it was a celebratory and thanks to FirstTable a very affordable one.

Kobe Jones is great for any kind of meetings. I was out with my friends and we really enjoyed our time there. We are students so we got the affordable multiple course meals (for at least 3ppl) which nevertheless left us full and happy. We had around 7/8 plates to share together with also a dessert. As Italian, I particularly liked the mushrooms salad but I didn't enjoy much the ice-cream. The view on the river is also nice. I recommend this place!

Excellent service. Food can be better. I didn't like some of the combinations, like crab and daikon, daikon flavour is too strong and I couldn't taste much of the crab. The lobster was great but I'm not sure if steamed vegetables went well with it.

What a perfect night! We chose the KOBE’S 10 set menu which was delicious and generous! We couldn't help but also order a couple of servings of the NUMBER ONE SPECIAL which was literally the best thing we have eaten in a long while! We were seated at a window table overlooking the river, and never felt rushed. Can't recommend more highly - we'll definitely be back! Thank you Kobe Jones :)
