I have read all of the reviews of the Kobe An and can only ascertain that these customers have never been to Mr. Sushi (Bowles and Wadsworth), or have never had really excellent Japanese food. I have tasted Japanese food all over the United States and Hawaii, and can only say that the food and service at the Kobe An is mediocre. The quality of food provided for the price is not equitable.
I heartily recommend Mr. Sushi for those of you who consider the Kobe An excellent Japanese food. I wonder if it is the atmosphere, which is comfortable, as well as the tea rooms that influence your ideas that this is such wonderful cuisine??

Each time I go to Kobe An, it's a great time. I can eat in the dining room, I can eat in the lounge, I can eat at the sushi bar, or I can eat in the tea room, and it's always a great experience. Once I get there, I relax knowing I'm about to enjoy myself.
While personal preferences vary, I've not had ANYTHING on this menu that was less than ""good"". According to my personal taste, most of what I've tried is at least ""great""! The sushi menu offers a wide variety, which makes it difficult for me to want to try anything off of the dinner menu - I can't not order sushi when I walk in. HOWEVER...I have had some of the menu items, each of which were abundantly flavorful, filling, and left me more than happy when I was done.
So you might have to travel a bit further if you aren't on the west side of town, but it'll be worth the trip! If you dig sushi, you'll love Kobe An.

I've been to the top-rated sushi restaurants in Denver and Boulder, some many times. However, this storefront, unassuming place has the best sushi of them all. I was critical, but Rex's creations were amazing. Get a place at the sushi bar and just let him pick. Worth the trip.

Very Friendly, and genuine staff. I've never had better service, and the food is enough to bring me back. Sushi is by far my favorite thing to eat, and Kobe An truly delivers...Rex is an AMZING sushi chef, his sauces and creations will melt in your mouth.
ALL THE FISH IS EXTREMELY FRESH
The Toro is to DIE FOR
The kitchen blends old Japanese with new, it's innovative, also traditional...and everything delicious. I could eat at Kobe An EVERY DAY.
If you haven't gone you're missing out.

Rex is the name of the head sushi chef. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any sushi goer. I've been going here for almost 2 years. Rex is friendly, fun and highly entertaining. I drive from Broomfield just to have Rex's wonderful creations. I have never ordered off the menu... I just sit and tell Rex to do his magic and I have not once left disappointed.
The only con is that it is so far away from where I live.

I sat at the sushi bar and the sushi chef (Roy, I think) told me that usually his customers let him loose to create items of his own design. It was the best sushi I have ever eaten. It is so worth the drive. Try it out and let Roy do his thing. Lots of fun and a great dining experience.

I just found this restaurant about 4 months ago. I am very critical of food, Japanese in particular. The reasons I LOVE this restaurant are # 1 the food is authentic, # 2 the atmosphere, they even have tatami rooms, and # 3 it is family owned. It is an older restaurant, but VERY well taken care of and updated. I can tell the owners really put alot of care into the business. I almost forgot, the staff is very friendly too.

Having lived in California and tried many Japanese restaurant this is my favorite. This restaurant is sooo deliousous! Not only is the tempura the best I have ever had. The quality of the meat is wonderful and the sushi is delightful and FRESH. For those who object to this, ""YOU MUST BE CRAZY!"". Everytime I fly into Denver I book all my appointment there to meet my clients. They are always so happy and more willing to work with me because they enjoy their food so much and always tell me they're going to take their family there. Thank you Kobe An for being a great place.

My friend and I dine at Kobe An at least once a week, and we love it! The staff is great, the service is prompt, and they have Japanese meals that I haven't been able to find anywhere else. It's a lot of fun to eat in a tea room, but make reservations for them at dinnertime. Try them for lunch first... you'll be back for dinner! Also, we have been there with my 11 month old daughter, and they are very patient and tolerant of kids. Everything on the menu is great, so try it soon!

i just moved to denver from san fransisco, and i know good japanese food. the sushi here is very fresh and the rice is perfect. the sushi chef here really knows how to prepare great sushi, his only downfall is he is not very talkative. if you are looking for good sushi in lakewood, this is it. another plus is the restaurant is japanese owned, i don't know about denver, but in california it is getting harder and harder to find a japanese owned japanese restaurant.

i have been eating sushi for 20 years and this is one of the best places i have tried. i have become a regular here for the past few years, and highly recommend trying it. i mostly eat sushi, but have also tried the tempura and sukiaki, they were delicious. I will also add that the restaurant is well decorated and very clean.

Kobe-an is the fist place that I've ever tried sushi and its' made me a huge fan. If you don't like sushi try the Deluxe Bento - it's wonderful. The miso soup is also fantastic - warms your body right up. My favorite is the Bento/sushi lunch special - tempura veggies and shrimp, california rolls, miso soup, salad, Tuna, Salmon etc. Great for only $13.00. The sushi chefs are a real treat and the ladies that serve you are wonderful. Great treat - go here for lunch once a week. Would recommend to people who've never tried sushi and anyone who would want some good Sushi and Ichiban! Oh and they have cool Japenense tea rooms if you want to take off your shoes and take in the full experience.
