I've read many reviews on Kobe Jones, alot of positive ones, and also ones that tend to indicate that it errs on the side of overrated and too expensive. After trying it, I'd have to agree that I do think it is quite overpriced, considering all the other fantastic opens out there in Sydney. It's worth a try though if you've never been!
Came here bright and early on a Monday night, it was quite hot and the sun was still blazing, so they nicely pulled the blinds down for us. No photos of the decor or view, but they were both beautiful- watched the sunset while we ate.
Having a look at the menu
Number One Special - tasty crab salad & avo wrapped in kingfish baked in creamy sauce
Wish there was more than 2 pieces!
Volcano Roll - this had a similar flavour to the Number One Special, but with juicy scallops, crab salad and avocado (they really love their crab salad!) and creamy sauce. This was really filling!
This was just average - the massive juicy scallops were wasted in the tempura batter I think - the crab salad also made an appearance with some asparagus
Chicken Teriyaki Roulade
This was an interesting take on Chicken Teriyaki - cooked robata style and served with the teriyaki sauce on the side, with some vegetables and a creamy mushroom duxelle, I think I prefer my chicken teriyaki closer to the usual form though
And since I usually look at the dessert section first, I knew from the beginning of the meal that I had to save lots of room for this baby:
Kobe Jone's selection of eight dessert samplers, with the famous chocolate chopsticks!
The dessert platter had the following yummy desserts:
SUSHI ME 2
vanilla cheesecake, fresh fruits topping, served
with almond sauce and our famous chocolate chopsticks
strawberry freshly cut, marinated in crème de
cassis and lemon with a dash of sugar, served
with a crunchy sable and marble of vanilla and raspberry sorbet
tapioca cooked slowly in coconut milk with
vanilla and sugar, served with a jelly and compote of fresh mango and papaya
New York cheesecake with homemade strawberry compote, served with green tea icecream
flambéed green tea crème brulee
chocolate melting cake served with green tea ice-cream
SELECTION OF MACARONS
I was so stuffed by the end, I could barely finish it! I love dessert platters a bit too much.
