Kobe Teppanyaki, Doncaster East (Invited)

Kobe Teppanyaki situated in the office building shop 7 / 261-265 Blackburn Road, Doncaster East. You hardly miss this place cause it’s located in the office building and you’ll see the Kobe Teppanyaki sign.
It might be a challenge to travel using Public Transport but no worries by private vehicle because there are plenty underground car parks available in the building;
We’re glad to be invited by Kobe Team to have the Teppanyaki experience.

The restaurant was really spacious, clean and neat; It has two sections according to your preference whether you want to have Teppanyaki or A-La-Carte.
We came on the weekend around 7.30 PM and it was so busy full of people celebrating many occasions on the teppanyaki section.
The customer service was attentive and friendly; Both chef and customer staff were very professional to ensure to you have or don’t have any allergic or dietary requirements.
They’re really concerned with health and safety food delivery.

Kobe Teppanyaki offers different teppanyaki set according to your preference.
– Kobe Set: combination of different proteins (chicken, beef & seafood) + Tatsuta Age (Deep Fried Chicken)
– Kaisen Set: combination of seafood (Prawn, Scallops, Squid, Salmon)
– Tokyo Set: combination of different proteins (chicken, beef & seafood)
– Wagyu Set: combination of beef & seafood (Premium Wagyu Beef, Lobster, Scallop & Salmon)
– Yasai Set *Vegetarian*: Eggplant, Tofu, Mushroom, Vegetable Tempura

During our visit, we’re advised by the manager to have Kobe Set.
Each teppanyaki table consists between 6-8 people, we’re being looked after by the friendly, funny and nice chef Howard.
One of the good thing about having teppanyaki is to make new friends and enjoy the show from the skillful chef.

The entree dishes (Miso Soup, Salad & Tatsuta Age *Deep Fried Chicken) and our drinks came first while the chef was still preparing the cooking and heating up the teppanyaki cooktop.

We ordered Japanese Sunset (orange juice, apple juice, raspberry) and Virgin Pina Colada (coconut, pineapple juice). Both mocktail drinks had a fantastic and amazing taste;
Not only the taste but the presentation was also appealing, we’ve got couple questions from other guests asking about what drinks we had LOL 🙂

We had good first impression on their entree dish – fried chicken.
It was crispy and crunchy from the outside, perfectly cooked from the inside.
It wasn’t greasy and well seasoned; As soon as we finished our entree, we couldn’t wait to find out our teppanyaki main highlights (seafood, chicken & beef).

To begin the teppanyaki show, the chef cooked the garlic and this made us really hungry due to the fragrance coming from fried garlic.
Ohhh each of you will be getting two dipping sauces: Citrus Soy which’s perfect companion for seafood and Sesame dipping sauce for chicken and beef.
The chef would offer you Spicy Mayo (** this is so good!!) on the side if you want to add extra spicy flavour.


The chef cooked Prawn, Sakana (Fish) and Teriyaki Chicken altogether into one teppanyaki cooktop.

The prawn, Sakana (Basa Fish) and Chicken were perfectly grilled and well seasoned.
Both Basa fish and Teriyaki chicken were so tender and juicy. The taste was really rich and flavourful.

For the steak, We asked for Medium Rare Steak and it was perfectly grilled as we asked.
The steak was very juicy and good quality; Hmm we’re just wondering how good would that be if you choose the Premium Wagyu Set???!!
The chef totally nailed all the protein dishes.

After having all heavy dishes, we had the grilled seasonal vegetables with bean sprouts, mushrooms, carrots and spinach.

Finally, we had fried rice; We’re so entertained while he was preparing the fried rice.
It’s the game time where you need to catch the bowl of fried rice.
Mr.Epi didn’t manage to keep up with the game; he ruined the game and dropped the fried rice on the floor …
***He felt bad to have the customer staff cleaning the floor
On the other hand, Miss.Epi managed to catch the bowl though almost dropped it!! LOL

“There is always a place for a dessert” – Ice Cream (Black Sesame, Green Tea, Vanilla, Red Bean)
We opted for the black sesame and green tea.
The ice cream was really delicious, creamy and not too sweet!
Love both black sesame and green tea.

Overall, we had such an amazing night to have teppanyaki experience in Kobe Teppanyaki.
We’d definitely come back when we’re around this area and recommend this place to our friends.

Note: We’d like to say thank you to Kobe Teppanyaki’s team for having us.
