Looking closely in the glass antrim entry, you get the first hint this is something other than your usual I-Drive restaurant on the strip- to the left and right of the door. Tikis peer out.

Facing the back of the restaurant, a bar area. No Tiki mugs, but plenty of Geisha, Buddha, Pandas, and Samurai.

Taken from the back right, facing the back left, note the carved weapons on the wall. Also note the outrigger on the ceiling. The door to the left enters the Kobe proper.

A good view of the front atrium with Tikis flanking the door. Note the neon- the Mai Tiki serves Thai, Japanese, and Chinese cuisines.

And a final shot of the Tikis. There was also an excellent Maori style carving on the wall at the left front of the restaurant, but alas, I have no picture :(
