The Kobe Jones Philosophy

Food is a staple of life and at Kobe Jones we live by the philosophy that food should be easy to eat and always shared with friends and family.

Kobe Jones’s food is designed to bring the simplicity and beauty of Japanese cooking and meld it with nuances and surprising flavours of the west. Our chefs have created an array of flavours to suit every palate–for the first timer to the most adventurous diner. We are often asked where our name comes from….well, Kobe is an ancient fishing village in Japan and Kobe beef is world famous, so Kobe was chosen as part of our name to represent the best of the Japanese food ethic, epitomised by freshness and quality. Jones is a typical western name which represents the western influence and flavours in our dishes. This combination led us to the name Kobe Jones. Our teams in service and the kitchen hope you enjoy your experience at Kobe Jones and we invite your reviews and feedback, because you are the reason we exist!

How to Order

Our menu is in sections–rolls, tobanyaki, signature dishes, small plates, large plates, tempura, hot rocks, sushi and sashimi, and desserts. At Kobe Jones we believe in ‘graze dining’, which means our dishes are served share style with dishes designed to be shared by three people. We think the best way to dine is to choose from each section of the menu at two dishes per person.

Of course, seasoned Kobe Jones patrons will have their favourites but don’t forget to explore with your tastebuds. Because our menu is so extensive, we have designed some suggested menus to make it easier for you and give you a balance of flavours and textures. If there are just two of you, we have a special ‘Perfect for 2’ menu which lets you savour our complete range of flavours. If you are more adventurous, ask you waiter for our premium set menu selections.

Our staff are trained to help you get the right balance of flavours, so if you choose to dine a la carte, do not hesitate to ask for assistance.

Kobe Jones Food

At every opportunity we choose sustainable food sources, buying where possible sea farmed or aquacultural products that meet our exact specifications. We only buy wild catch fish where it does not pose a threat to the sustainability of the source.

Kobe Jones prides itself on providing consistent product. To achieve this we have established exacting specifications and requirements for the types and grades of foods we buy, covering seafood, fish and meat. We also use specific Japanese sourced products to ensure the illusive umami quality in our dishes.

Kobe Jones makes all of its signature sauces and condiments on the premises. Our secret recipes are well tested to ensure their uniqueness and high standards of flavour and quality.

Where chilli is added, we specify the heat with an [H] and a number from 1 to 5.
NB: At Level 5 we use Death Sauce which comes with a health warning!

Vegetarian dishes have been identified with a [V].

We can provide gluten free soya sauce and menu items without gluten based ingredients–ask your waiter for the options available.
