Happy Hour at Kobe Japanese Steak House – Lahaina, Maui, HI (CLOSED)

The following message was posted to Kobe’s Facebook page on March 2, 2022:

It is with heavy hearts that we announce Kobe Japanese Steak House Maui will not be re-opening. Unfortunately, we have been unsuccessful in hiring chefs, and with the current state of the economy and lack of staff, we have decided itʻs time to officially close our doors.
After 36 years, we have decided as a family itʻs time to start looking for a buyer for the restaurant or someone/business interested in opening up something in this current location.
We are eternally grateful for the years of patronage, love, and support weʻve had. We couldnʻt have lasted this long without all of you. If you or anyone else might be interested please call 808-667-5555. We ask for your kokua in spreading the word. Mahalo Nui Loa and God bless you all.
This is not the end, this is only the beginning. When one door closes, another one opens…
With Love,
Martha Haleakala

Kobe Japanese Steak House & Oku’s Sushi Bar in Lahaina, Maui is a casual Japanese steakhouse, lounge & sushi bar specializing in teppanyaki & tropical cocktails.

Enjoy the exciting, ancient art of teppanyaki cooking at the restaurant voted number 1 Japanese restaurant on Maui.

Teppanyaki is derived from “teppan” which means iron plate and “yaki” which means grilled. At Kobe, it is delivered with the style and grace of a Japanese country inn. Blend in the gentle aloha of Hawaii, you will experience an evening where terrific food and entertainment are the perfect combination.

After a delicious bowl of shabu-shabu soup, your teppan chief will begin to cook up an entrée of dishes, right in front of you, cooking it to tasty perfection, while watching him do the “flaming onion volcano”, one of their many culinary tricks.

Another favorite at Kobe is to sit in the sunken sushi bar and order one of uncle Oku’s fabulous daily specials and enjoy watching the chefs masterfully create their delicious sushi.

Oku prides himself on the high quality of fresh fish chosen from local vendors. Approximately 95% of Oku’s fish comes from Hawaii, and the balance of his menu consists of exotic items imported from Japan.

The restaurant décor features many historical ornaments and artifacts to provide an authentic feel of Japan, the mother country.

Dinner is nightly from 5:30pm to 10pm. Complete dinners are reasonably priced, with sunset specials available for the first hour. Oku’s sushi bar is open nightly till 10PM.
