What a wonderful meal! We had the tasting option, with a range of courses, and sat at the bar allowing us to converse freely with the chef. All of the dishes were superb, and the service was attentive without being obtrusive. Hard to pick favourites, but a yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño, and a beautiful beef fillet with a wasabe-based sauce... More

Got the bento box for lunch with a client - bit pricey but very happy with what we got. I recommend getting that if you want to try the place but don't want to spend too much. Been looking for an excuse again. - Tokyoite

We used to live in Tokyo and spent several "special" occasions in this restaurant, trying to time our visits to when Nobu himself was present. The food and service were always exemplary and we were greeted on several occasions by the man himself and made to feel especially welcome. Whilst not true "Japanese" in style the food is excellent as... More

I was staying across the road at the Okura and had dinner by myself - great service, great food and I thought reasonable prices by Tokyo standards, but (dinner mid-week in July) it was rather empty and felt a little flat. As a business traveler glued to his ipad (they have wifi) this hardly mattered but I would have been... More

There's no question this is a very good restaurant, perhaps better than the US versions. But this is Tokyo, and if you are seeking the best of Japanese cuisine, not Asian Fusion, then you should save Nobu for another time and place and explore other, better offerings now that you're here. There are many.

This is our family’s first trip to Tokyo and we made our dinner reservations a month in advance at Nobu. We didn’t know what to expect and we were not disappointed with the whole dinner experience! The food was excellent! And the service was phenomenal! The staff was very attentive to our needs. They seated us at the dining area... More

I love Japanese cuisine because of the attention to detail and balance of ingredients. Nobu reinforces this while also bringing a modern twist. Some of my favorite dishes were tempura avocado and toro sashimi with a sliver of green jalapeno. It was perfectly balanced and delicious. The decor is nice, the staff is very friendly and attentive. You will have... More

We arrived in Tokyo and had a booking at Nobu. What an experience: an hearty and vocal welcome from the staff, good service and trendy decor. I had the yellowtail with Jalapino which was great. The squid as starter was delicious as well as the deep fried asparagus with salmon roe. The Black Cod with miso was devine! An evening... More

It's yummy and you can get the best of both traditional (to a certain extent) and funky modern sushi. It's just amazing. If NOBU has it on the menu it must be good. Their sauces are fantastic. Certainly value for your money!

Ok, first off - it is expensive. Tokyo is a food lover's paradise - and you can go off the beaten path and be delighted at the quality of food that you will find for far less money. But then, Nobu doesn't have a reputation for nothing. Fantastic food, top notch service, and best of all - their ability to... More
