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.
Overpriced and overrated, can get better Japanese food for a cheaper price elsewhere. Portions were tiny considering the price paid.
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.
Food was ok, would not recommend especially with children.
Received such amazing service from Miranda. She made our night very enjoyable whilst also helping us to chose the most delicious food! She was fantastic.
Poor service, high prices and average food does not make sense. Recently visited Nobu Perth and it was exceptional, very disappointed with Melbourne and won’t be going back.
Loved every meal we had. Small servingsbut you do expect that with Japanese food.
Food was superb but not happy with the service
The food was amazing and level of service was excellent. Staff were very attentive and accommodating
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.
Food and cocktails are simply amazing. Favourite restaurant
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.
Great food in a nice setting. We were well taken care of. Our waitress was really nice and she talk us through the menu in a very good and professional way.
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.
I’m speechless.. I travelled from Sydney for the day just to have lunch at Nobu for the first time! It was AMAZING!
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 was amazing, the wagu tacos are a must have by everyone but two each is not enough. Order again!!!!
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.
Over rated. Have eaten better quality elsewhere for the same price. Example, Sake is exceptional compared to Nobu.
Came here boxing day and was served by an amazing young lady named SHAY 😇we let here select our 8 course menu for us and she absolutely nailed it... Have to say SHAY made our experience very memorable from food to wine to desert she was a jem the food OMG expensive but amazing
We have been for lunch before which was fantastic so decided on a Xmas dinner which turned out to be very disappointing food quality average and our waiter very disinterested so overall a big let down but enjoyed our afternoon and overnight stay at Crown
The food was ok as aspected. It's sitting in the basement of a restaurant which I don't like
The waiters were extremely knowledgeable about the menu and each course. The food was, albeit on the light side, extremely delicious.
so happy with high quality food and services.
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.
Very disappointed with the service level, food was staggered and didn’t flow. There wasn’t enough staff.
Went for lunch and ordered the deluxe bento box. Overcooked miso cod and Angus steak which had to be redone. The cod was perfect the second time but the steak was still dry (supposedly wagyu). Expected more from such a renowned restaurant. Service was great though as they were quick to fix the errors. Due to the location the clientele leans towards business types and tourists during the day. Could be different at night. Underwhelming experience.
Expected better from a restaurant with Nobu's reputation.
Great dinner and service
I have visited Nobu before but many years ago. I feel as if its decor is very dated. The wooden floor downstairs was very slippery.
The service was fantastic and our waitress was very helpful and friendly.
The food was amazing and so was the cocktail.
We selected Nobu to celebrate our wedding anniversary and booked the table in advance.
Our Server In particular was polite however there was massive delay in the Food and Drink Serving Time. We had to follow up on our food and drink twice which we found bit odd from a restaurant of Nobu's level. We are from Hospitality Industry ourselves so we definitely understand the pressure etc but not impressed.
I would definitely ask my friends to try Nobu once and wait for their responses.
Always enjoy our time at Nobu. We enjoy the experience with the family. Food is well presented and tasty.
Food quality was disappointing. Sushi rolls were poorly made, shashimi cut was amateurish, fried vegetables resembled servings at a food court. Sake was ok but took a long time to serve.
Went to Nobu for my wife's birthday with high expectations. Had some nice cocktails to start. The food was decent, however took forever, and certain orders were missed. Whilst it was nice I wouldn't be heading back in a hurry.
Absolutely amazing experience! We went to celebrate our anniversary and the restaurant was a perfect place for it. Definitely visiting again soon.
Cannot fault this place in any way, amazing food, exceptional service and a perfect atmosphere.
Consistency in food quality across all Nobus I hav dined at - NYC and Malibu and London ! Really fresh sashimi and a great dessert platter for a celebration. We will be back, thank you Nobu !
