International in Kōbe

This cheerfully eclectic and friendly restaurant offers a giant menu of good-value lunches and dinners: noodles (Italian and Japanese), pizza, Chinese dishes and generous teishoku (set meals), plus plenty of beer and cocktails. It's on the block behind Green Hill Hotel; look for the many potted plants and the small English sign.

Some of the more unusual dishes include deep-fried tofu and avocado, and shiitake mushrooms stuffed with minced shrimp. The cheese for your pasta might be scooped right from a giant wheel of Parmigiano. Last order is at 9.40pm.
