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.
Nobu would have to be one of the best dining experiences I have ever had
The staff were very knowledgeable regarding the food and extensive menu they were also able to assist and recommend the menu for your taste
Good restaurant for celebrations, birthday!
Absolutely incredible dinner. Nobu were incredibly hospitable considering the new bans put in place on indoor numbers, and they stepped up their accommodation to make us even more welcome.
Great place to impress business guests
We had high hopes for Nobu, and the food largely delivered on flavour and appearance. The staff were attentive without being too present. However, a couple of dishes lacked refinement and flavour and some meat/fish dishes were presented with food in large chunks, challenging with chopsticks!
Our major disappointment was the quality of the decor and overall lack of quality furnishings. Our table was sticky, chairs were chipped, bench seats worn out and food scraps on the table and seat.
Set menu is varied and filling, staff are attentive and willing to accommodate for any requirements.
Perfect every time! Not a single complaint. Love this place and highly recommend.
Nice food busy on a Friday evening, yet Wesley provided good service
In short- the food, the exceptional staff who were professional but also very welcoming , friendly and knowledgeable about the food and beverages
Nobu surpassed all my expectations and truly blew me away with not only the quality of the food but of the service. We had such amazing customer service from Pamela who made the experience all the more enjoyable. I could not be any happier with my experience!
Amazing food and service
Fantastic food in a beautiful setting, perfect for a special occasion or treat
A great lunch experience
The food was all delicious and just melted in your mouth. Best beef tataki I’ve ever had. Decided to see what the fuss was all about with the black cod miso and can now see why it’s the most popular item on their menu.
A beautiful location for a beautiful restaurant! And delicious food! This is a rare find. Definitely one to come back to. I thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone if they are looking to celebrate a special occasion. This restaurant takes elegance and fine dining to a whole new level!
Fabulous night with amazing food and service!!
The best meal experience I’ve had. The waiter was great at helping us choose what dishes to choose. Would and have recommended everyone to go to NOBU
The service was fantastic and our waiter was brilliant.
I had my birthday dinner there and it was definitely a perfect choice
The delicacy of flavours and the constant quest for details typical of Japanese tradition fuse in perfection at Nobu.
I’m Italian and I love “my” food, but Nobu made me wish I could eat Japanese every single day!
Amazing food, iconic dishes
We were seated in a dark and extremely noisy area. We couldn’t hear each other or the server.
We were looking forward to celebrating our son’s birthday but couldn’t enjoy our meal. It was a disappointing and uncomfortable experience.
Food is great and the service is very quick considering how busy it gets
Lovely meal in a vibrant atmosphere. Japanese food with a new age twist. Beef tataki was delicious, tempura was spectacularly light and crisp, sashimi to die for. Service was great. Would recommend for a nice dinner and was a lovely way to end our AUS open weekend. Thank you Nobu Melbourne!
Staff, ambience and scene was lovely and highly recommend for a drink but didn’t do research so went in blindly on what to order as the menu was alittle confusing as well as portion sizes and were looking around on other tables Might go with the set menu next time.
We were celebrating a 21st Birthday with family members.
Nobu was requested by the birthday boy.
We were blown away with the food quality.
The table service was brilliant.
Having not had Japanese before the waitress guided us through the menu.
We could not have asked for anymore.
With the Australian tennis open in town there tennis ball desert was exceptional.
We will be back
Our waitress was amazing! We had the 8 course set menu, most of the dishes were yummy except a few (beef, cod, nigiri, fried chicken /quail. Beef was extremely chewy as the chef did not cut it against the grain, cod was too fishy and didn't like the texture, nigiri didn't seem fresh as I've had better elsewhere, chicken/quail quite bland but had a good crunch. The other dishes were delicious though! Extremely flavoursome and well presented.
Such an amazing meal and very good value for money! We had an incredible time and our waiter gave us excellent service. Hope it comes to Sydney one day!
Awesome atmosphere for lunch with friend and family
Service was above average but not exemplary. We had to follow up on food once or twice as we waited between 15 - 30min for the last 2 dishes. It was not easy getting attention for service. Food was otherwise delicious and creative.
Great food, excellent service.
Not as good as other Nobus....
You’re very well taken care of at Nobu. Both food and service - EXCELLENT!
Excellent service and exceptional food.
Great service with great food, The new style sashimi is a must try along with the baby tiger prawns.
-At that level of restaurant service/food/ambiance just didn’t match. Bento box was ok but the vegetable stir fry on top of the rice was pretty disappointing, felt like they just wanted to put some more things in the box because they were charging $65 per box. The only major problem was that we got some aluminum foil in the prawns.
-Sushi was good
-Black Cod delicious
-Ordered a bottle of wine and was told that I needed to wait for 10 mins as it wasn’t refrigerated. So I just ordered a different bottle which they were surprised.
-I think they are trying to do too much fusion other cuisine and not enough Japanese dishes or modern Japanese.
Oh my goodness, best Japanese cuisine I’ve ever had and the house Sake was amazing
Amazing food, Amazing Service, would highly recommend Nobu.
Thank you dearly for catering for my 18 months year old while we were celebrating a birthday. He had a great dinner and experience! We also had a great time! The 8 course menu was very satisfying
