Guests may enjoy the wide range of superb cocktails, sake and wine from the bar, overlooking the stunning river views.

Nobu started as a business partnership in 1994 between chef Nobu Matsuhisa, his partners actor Robert De Niro, producer Meir Teper and managing partner Richie Notar. With the original restaurant in New York, the Nobu brand is now currently established in many locations around the world including London, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Milan, Hong Kong and Waikiki.

Nobu restaurants continue with unprecedented praise and rave reviews from such notable publications as the New York Times, the Zagat Surveys, and the Michelin Guide. The restaurants’ perennial popularity and devoted following are a tribute to Nobu putting his own personal spin on traditional Japanese cooking.

Great place for celebrating a special occasion. Was at Nobu for lunch and the menu caters for a long lunch to enjoy the Occassion.

While the food was good, the service was interrupted when our waitress went on a break. After that we constantly had to ask for service. The constant expletives from the neighbouring table and volume so loud we couldn’t hear the wait staff meant we really couldn’t enjoy the evening. At these prices I would have expected better.

Our favourite restaurant delivers once again with great food and very good service. We dine at this restaurant at least six times a year and every time the food never disappoints. Pricey but is always.

Food was good, nothing special for the price charged. Service on drinks was slow but this was apologised for and one drink taken off the overall bill. Music was too loud for a nice dining experience.

I came expecting it to be a nice restaurant to take my girlfriend there for her bday.

We ordered an 8 course.

Disappointingly the food was bad. Overly salty. Flavors weren't a good blend.

The only two dishes that were ok was the Steak (cooked nicely) and the dessert.

We had a terrible experience.

The food is wonderful- the service is very slow and disjointed- we were served by five different people during the meal - the cocktails for the bar took forever to come to the table and the wait for each course was ong with each of our meals not coming together- i had finished my main before my GF receivedher- only after i had flagged a waiter and asked him to chase it up....

The food was excellent and the waiters were very attentive. Good to go there for special one off occasions as the food is very pricey and servings are small for the price you pay per dish.

While the food was very good, unfortunately the service was far from attentive and the restaurant very cold, which spoilt what should have been a very nice evening meal.

Unfortunately the meal was nice but not exceptional, and definately overpriced. Charging $13.50 for a bottle of still water is ridiculous.

Wonderful Japanese food served with a modern twist. Service by staff was impeccable. Always attentive and yet unobtrusive. We dined during the Australian Open and we’re lucky enough to be seated next to one of the stars of the game. A memorable night for my wife and I.

My partner and I attended for the first time and I can assure you it won’t be our last. The food was delicious and the service was incredible. We barely looked at the menu as the staff were so involved and helpful in recommending dishes and also recommending drinks to match. Would highly recommend for a special occasion. I’ll be back for my birthday for sure!

This was our second trip to Nobu. The food was just as wonderful as we remember it from our first experience.

The wait staff are amazing and the food is excellent. I can't recommend this venue enough. Treat yourself to special night out. The signature dishes are great, actually the whole menu is great.

The environment is not up to the price. It's way too noisy. The food is not worthy of Japanese cuisine. The service is well below international standards. No recommendations and even to remove from your lists.

Their signature dish the black cod was our highlight of the night, as well as that the desserts were pretty well done too. Although, the surroundings are quite loud and it’s very dark inside the restaurant.

The food overall is pretty good but I reckon the pork dish was awful and doesn't taste refine at all. Previously , I had the pork belly and it actually melted in my mouth even with the crackling. But I am glad the staff took notice of my complain when I told her the pork had a funny taste.

We dined at Nobu last night after hearing a lot about it and were not disappointed! We chose to have the 8 course degustation and the serving size was perfect. The food was beyond our expectations and absolutely melt-in-your-mouth good! It's definitely an expensive night out once you pay for food and wine, but well worth it for a special occasion.
