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.

Had a table of 4. 1 vegan, 1 vegetarian and 2 regular eaters. Didn’t know what we wanted to order... the waiter took care of ordering for us and ensured we were all catered to. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Cannot recomend Nobu enough. We had such a great night.

Nobu is always amazing. In a big group or an intimate setting, I never leave disappointed. The meal and experience was a joy from beginning to end with delicious cocktails and umeshu to wash it all down with. The sashimi was so delicious that we regretted not ordering more but ordering 9 dishes between 2 of us already we thought we better stop! Looking forward to next time as always.

Unfortunately it wasn’t special - for a brand (Nobu) in such high regard we were disappointed with the quality of some of the food - we had the Lobster taco special with the Ruinart Champagne - Champagne was great as always, the Lobster was severely disappointing - small, it didn’t taste fresh - almost like it was frozen - definitely not what is expected from a restaurant of such high standard - the other food we had was nice but our experience was ruined by our disappointment

Food was great and waiter was nice but atmosphere was average. There was kids running around and nearly knocked my bag over. I asked for tap water but was given a bottle of water which was not nice.

As being a chef, I never miss an opportunity to come to nobu , as it is one of my favourite restaurants, the food is always with out a doubt exceptional! (My compliments to all the hard working chefs), every dish that we chose to share amoungst the table, was exceptionally delisous! The recommendation of dessert from the wait staff was also exceptional! In an overall rating of the night, was spectacular!
Will definitely book again with out a doubt!!

Variety of dishes, lots of flavour.
Unfortunately, my request to have a “happy birthday” message written on my fiance’s dessert was not carried through despite me confirming it three times (even upon arrival).

Sushi was fresh but easily available in other restaurant so nothing impressive.

Beef kushiyaki were over done and tough and had to be send back. New skewers were slightly better but still tough n too much teriyaki sauce ..I can’t taste the natural flavor of the beef
Didn’t try signature dishes as I was dining alone and wanted light dinner

Won’t bother coming back.

Extremely disappointed. Ordered pre dinner drinks which arrived after the courses commenced and 30 min between all of us getting our pre drinks. Courses came too quick and when asked to slow down they virtually halted.

We were seated next to an electronic ordering station which the waitresses congregated around. The table for this reason felt like we had waitresses standing around and chatting. The table was also wobbly which for a café would be fine not for a higher end restaurant.

The service was satisfactory, not amazing and not poor.

Food was fresh and nice to eat.

Squeezed in on a small table with no view downstairs.... Were we disappointed we had no view??? Absolutely not. The food was the view and it changed 10 times. Yes, we over ordered and we over ate but we sure are happy we did.

Great restaurant we have been to Nobu a number of times and always walk away satisfied. It is on the pricey side but it is well worth it for a special meal.

I don’t mind the price if the ambience reflects it. But bistro style sitting and noisy environment is not appealing. Food the saving grace - but still plating was under-whelming.

Original booking time unavailable (7pm), got 8.15.. rang Crown and got 6.45 on the day. We were seated downstairs, no windows, asked to be moved upstairs, and obligingly placed on table next to windows, view to river. The restaurant was not full, nor busy, but the staff were fantastic, along with the food. I would hesitate to book through Open Table again.

So dissapointed to have dined here last night for my wedding anniversary only to be seated next to 2 extremely rude, annoying and completely arrogant mid 20’s Guys who were not only loud and obnoxious, but were rude to staff and other patrons.
They should have been asked to leave with that type of behaviour!

Hi Guys, I come to Nobu at least once a month. Yesterday was the worst I’ve been. The amount of time it took to get a drink was ridiculous. We had 4 of us and you kept bringing out 6 servings. I told the girl 3 times and she still stuffed it up. The steak we had at the start was avarage. It had like a green celery on it. We were very disappointed. The food just didn’t wow us yesterday like it usually does. Did you have a different chef on?

We thought the food was the best Japanese good we have ever eaten. The service from our waitress was attentive without being pretentious or annoying. She was very helpful to make dish suggestions and made our experience very enjoyable. We would recommend this to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or romantic evening.
