Kobe Jones
29 Lime Street
King Street Wharf, NSW 2000
$$$$$

Kobe Jones – haven’t been there in months! We had a lovely dinner there, but unfortunately the photos didn’t quite turn out since the restaurant is incredibly dark, with only candle-light at our tables. It’s moody, dark and very cool.. but my camera didn’t think so 😉 It was unusually quiet, I suppose it’s not surprising since it was a Monday night. The nice manager wasn’t there unfortunately and whilst the service is polite, it’s not very warm or friendly. We enjoyed ourselves though since we had a table outside along the waterfront.

      It’s soooo good when done well! I don’t like tuna sashimi that much but tataki’s the best :)~

    I was just there on Sat night and ordered very similar dishes to you. 🙂 Have you tried the Island Style Ahi Special (seared tuna)? We ordered this for the first time and I actually prefer it to the tuna tataki. The beef tataki is also yum.

    Everything looks great, I like how the dessert is artfully presented.

    one of my fav restaurants 🙂 Although, I wish the menu would change every-so-often. I’m not sure of what to make about the new darker decor though…..

      Yes! I said the exact same thing about having some daily specials on the comment form.

      I actually prefer it brighter, so I can take pics 😉
