About Kobe Japanese Steakhouse
Kobé is known for offering its guests a unique Teppanyaki dining experience and doing so with its very own blend of fun and flare at its 12 Central Florida locations. It may surprise you to know that Kobé is family owned and operated.
Our story began in 1984 when Doi Tan Nguyen, along with his son Chau left Montreal, Canada. They came to Altamonte Springs and launched Kobé, Florida’s Premier Japanese Steakhouse. Nguyen had big ideas for his restaurant concept in the Orlando market. He wanted to deliver a unique dining experience that would offer an exciting and vibrant environment for guests to gather and celebrate over delicious food and drinks.
In 1996, with the passing of his father and joined by his sister and uncle, Chau Nguyen took over the company and remains the principal owner of the Florida native brand. Over the years, Kobé has grown to become a big family business that includes his children, nieces and numerous dedicated employees that have been with the company through the decades.
With 12 locations spanning from Orlando to Tampa, the Kobé team strives to continue to deliver the best Japanese Steakhouse dining experience to all local guests and those from all around the world.
