About Us
Once upon a time, in Mumbai, nearly four decades
ago, a journey began. Our journey.
It was 1975, in a modest 600 square feet area, near
India's oldest surviving Opera House a brand was
born. One that sizzles till date. It was christened,
KOBE. Kobe sizzlers has witnessed rapid growth and
fantastic interest since its origination with the
future looking incredibly promising. More than
Forty years hence, with a footprint of national and
international locations, they tell us, we are a
pioneer. An icon.
We vow to sizzle. Always. Everywhere.
What Makes Us Superior
Kobe Sizzlers is a sizzler joint and steak house brand specialising in
the creation of high quality sizzlers. Our philosophy is really very
simple: Quality sizzlers. A warm and welcoming atmosphere. Good
food and great personal service.
SizzlerAt the heart of our existence are sizzlers. We strive, every day, to
achieve, improve and improvise on what we have been passionate
about, since the time we dished out our first sizzler - bellowing steam
- in 1975.
Our ardent endeavour is to make you smack your lips and lick your
forks with every sizzler that finds its way out of our kitchen, on to your
table and into your hearts.
We have a near obsessive dedication to quality and hygiene and take
pride in being the early pioneers of sizzlers in the country. We try to
make our sizzlers as much home grown and authentic as possible;
using the best of ingredients, like we get the finest black pepper from
Kera la for our pepper sauce, while all the sauces (pepper, garlic,
mushroom, schezwan) are made in house.
We are aware that we are bringing to you something that is niche,
something that involves a great deal of culinary innovation. Hence our
creative juices - or should we say sauces - are forever flowing.
Though Sizzlers are our signature meal, we have an assortment of
offerings to suit varied palates. Our extensive menu, designed by our
highly experienced food experts, features a widespread range of
salads, pastas, soups, rolls, pizzas, sandwiches, breakfast. And more.
But we are best known for our sizzlers. As they say, it's our bread and
butter. If meat of the red and white kind is what you savour, then our
famed Chicken Shashlik, or any one of the large selection of our Steak
and Lamb Sizzlers would be more than sufficient to satiate one
ravenous appetite.
We could replace the Steak for you with a slab of Paneer if a
wholesome Vegetable Sizzler is what you are looking at. And if it is
Seafood that allures your taste buds, then voila! Amongst the
Seafood Sizzlers in our listings, Fish & Prawns Shashlikis what we
have seen our long-time sea food enthusiasts swear by. All of this,
laced with the choicest, traditional homemade sauces, the subtle
flavors of which have been passed down generation to generation.
Recipes of which are akin to well-kept trade secrets. You might want
to top it all off with some of the beverages we tender. Hot, cold or
inviting iced tea or coffee. There is a Japanese saying about Kobe, the
fifth largest Japanese city, famed for its cosmopolitan spirit; "If you
can't go to Paris, go to Kobe"
Alas, alcohol is the only thing we do not proffer. We are family after
We radiate warmth and offer personalized service which is
professional, yet casual. Once you've stepped in, we want you to feel
snug and comfortable. While you are here, we want you to leave the
world behind you and immerse yourself in good food. We are a
family restaurant which means we like the ambiance to be convivial
and welcoming where you can let your hair down with your loved
ones. We are there to help you out with suggestions, and prescribe
items on the menu to tickle your taste buds.

Franchising - A Quick Overview
A franchise is the agreement or license between two legally
independent parties which gives:
·A person or group of people (franchisee) the right to market a product
or service using the trademark or trade name of another business
·The franchisee the right to market a product or service using the
operating methods of the franchisor
·The franchisee the obligation to pay the franchisor fees for these rights
·The franchisor the obligation to provide rights and support to
Owns trademark or trade name Provides support:
Receives Fees
Uses trademark or trade name
Expands business with franchisors support
Pays Fees
A single-unit (direct-unit) franchise is an agreement where the
franchisor grants a franchisee the rights to open and operate ONE
franchise unit. This is the simplest and most common type of
franchise. It is possible, however, for a franchisee to purchase
additional single-unit franchises once the original franchise unit
begins to prosper. This is then considered a multiple, single-unit
• Area development
• Master franchise (sub-franchising)
A multi-unit franchise is an agreement where the franchisor grants a
franchisee the rights to open and operate more than one unit.
Under an area development franchise, a franchisee has the right to
open more than one unit during a specific time, within a specified
area. For example, a franchisee may agree to open five units over a
five year period in a specified territory. The franchisor grants the
franchisee exclusive rights for the development of that territory
A master franchise agreement gives the franchisee more rights than
an area development agreement. In addition to having the right and
obligation to open and operate a certain number of units in a defined
area, the master franchisee also has the right to sell franchises to other
people within the territory, known as sub-franchises. Therefore, the
master franchisee takes over many of the tasks, duties and benefits of
the franchisor.
