Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi

Food is a staple of life and at Kobe Jones we live by the philosophy that food should be easy to eat and always shared with friends and family.

Kobe Jones’s food is designed to bring the simplicity and beauty of Japanese cooking and meld it with nuances and surprising flavours of the west. Our chefs have created an array of flavours to suit every palate–for the first timer to the most adventurous diner.

We are often asked where our name comes from….well, Kobe is an ancient fishing village in Japan and Kobe beef is world famous, so Kobe was chosen as part of our name to represent the best of the Japanese food ethic, epitomised by freshness and quality. Jones is a typical western name which represents the western influence and flavours in our dishes. This combination led us to the name Kobe Jones.

Our teams in service and the kitchen hope you enjoy your experience at Kobe Jones and we invite your reviews and feedback, because you are the reason we exist!

Everything was amazing from the minute we walked in the door to the time we left. I also had two children aged 5/3 and they were very accommodating and even made them a off the menu dessert to cater for their dietary concerns. Service was fabulous and felt very looked after whilst there. Highly recommended

The food at Kobe Jones is absolutely top-notch. We had a hot seafood platter, sashimi and sushi platter and the popular crab bombs for 3 adults and 1 kid. All the seafood are so fresh and there is a good variety. Very happy with our choice. Finishing off with mix dessert platter and chocolate fondant. The mix dessert platter. The pina cotta and the green tea creme brulee were a standout for me. A very delightful night. We will definitely come back.

Kobe Jones is simply one of the best dining experiences ever. The service is impeccable, the food is great and the ambiance is superb.

My partner and I would highly recommend this amazing experience. We come here once every few months to celebrate a milestone and every time we leave with a smile on our face. Thank you so much!

Overall the food is delicious, served beautifully and we couldn’t be any more happier!! Even the atmosphere is prime!!
Except this time the above was all correct and maybe the waitress was having an off day... as she was rude to me and didn’t acknowledge anything I said or asked about -maybe if we had a better understanding waitress, this night would have been perfect!! Otherwise food, atmosphere is top notch!

We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Kobe Jones, it was delicious. It was quite expensive, even with the first table booking, it would have been more affordable if we could have chosen one of the set menus but none of the options were pescatarian and we were told no substitutions.

Food was ok.
Not the freshest sushi. Seafood didn't taste fresh and the rice was hard.
The Volcano dish was ok, presentation was sloppy. So glad we didn't pay full price for this.

The long delay between the dishes spoilt what could have been a good dining experience. Been the 1st customers to arrive, how the miscommunication with the kitchen could have taken place is rather surprising given the brand name the restaurant carries. Still we left a tip acknowledging mistakes can happen.

Great overall. Restaurant was not busy at that time so we were wondering why we couldn’t book at later time like 6 or 6.30, but it’s fine. Food was amazing and the cocktail I order was quite average

I had an early dinner with my family at Kobe Jones on Sunday. We were the first customers to arrive. In general, the staff were courteous and professional, and our table wait staff was especially attentive. However, the hall manager seemed quite haughty and aloof. In their booking system, it said I had booked for 2, but when I went back and checked my First Table booking, I had correctly booked for 4 people. The food came out quickly, and everything was delicious. My favourites were the warm wagyu tataki, soft-shell crab with yuzu mayo, and the vegetable dengaku.
We were there at around sunset, at an outdoor table because it was very stuffy inside. They kept pulling the outdoor blind up and down, about 5 times throughout our meal, and everytime they closed it it felt dark and stuffy because it blocked out the light and the breeze couldn't flow through. It would be even better if they pay attention to details like that, to improve the customer experience.
The dessert took quite a while to come out, I think it was because there were a number of tables filled by that time.
The strawberry pannacotta shots were refreshing, the yuzu cointreau curd and brownies were delicious and well balanced in sweetness and acidity with a citrus 'zing' from the yuzu.
All in all, a pleasant experience!

We found the menu very confusing however the wait staff were really helpful in guiding us as to what was popular and how many selections would be a satisfying meal for two. I think we chose well, all the dishes were very flavoursome. The prices are on the expensive side so a First Table booking made the dinner value for money. The location overlooking Darling Harbour as the sun set is quite special.

Japanese is my favorite cuisine, and I get very excited when I have the opportunity of trying something new. I found it a bit pricey even with discount for what is presented. The waiting staff are sweet and helpful but the management lacked empathy and patient.

All of the food that we ordered were delicious! Great quality! The service was very disappointing however, we found it very difficult to speak to the hostest and it took forever to get the bill we ended up having to go to the front of the restaurant to ask again. Also there were a lot of seagulls trying to get food off tables that are situated near the balcony, should consider doing something about that as it was very distracting. Overall great food and atmosphere, would recommend to book through First Table as the prices are too high otherwise!
