A desert tradition for more than 35 years, KOBE is the only Japanese-owned steakhouse in the Coachella Valley. The restaurant, a replica of a 300-year-old Japanese country inn, set behind a beautiful garden and pond, is a landmark on Highway 111 in Rancho Mirage.

Your KOBE experience begins as you enter the traditional Japanese garden, with its handmade water wheel, tsukubai fountain, and temple garden bell. A wooden mon, or gateway, greets you at the entry and, as you cross the red footbridge, you can enjoy the sounds of a gentle waterfall flowing into the koi pond. Many of the colorful koi have lived in the pond since the restaurant opened, and others were born there. Feeding them is a desert tradition.

KOBE is pure dining entertainment: an engaging blend of dynamic teppan-grill cooking and fresh, flavorful, Japanese cuisine that creates a spirited atmosphere of shared celebration and delight. Countless collectibles and artwork imported from Japan give the rooms a warm, authentic quality. The intimate sushi bar features the freshest fish and generous portions. In the dining rooms, highly skilled master chefs artfully slice and dice everything from the highest-quality certified Angus steak and chicken to seafood delicacies such as lobster, tiger prawns, scallops, and halibut. All are prepared before your eyes in a fun and festive setting around the communal table.
