Ambience is nice. Food presentation is great but quality average. We went twice for the weekday lunch special which is advertised on the Crown website. 2 courses for $40 with wine and coffee. Both times, we were not given the special menu (only the a la carte menu) and had to specially request for it. I had to specifically ask... More

This is undoubtedly my favourite Japanese restaurant. We come here often because some days we just need to satisfy a craving that only nobu can do! While all the dishes are amazing, our staples are yellowtail sashimi with jalopenos, mini tacos, and miso cod. Nobu also has signature dishes that are only available in Melbourne so ask the waiters what... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Melbourne. A little pricy but an overwhelming experiance for your taste buds! I recommend you try the white chocolate passion fruit martini from their cocktail selections. The food was simply wonderful. It does get quite noisy and packed but that's what you're going to expect from places that serve great food. Still I wish... More

It was my first time at Nobu and was disappointing. We had the 9 courses meal the sushi was amazing and very fresh it was the only dish that I really loved. The other dishes with the fresh fish was quite acidic and their signature dish which was the miso cod was way too sweet. The soup didn't have much... More

Second visit to Nobu, first time in Melbourne. Booked online from Perth about 6-8 weeks in advance and were given a 6.30pm booking on a Monday night! Booked for our last night to end a girls shopping / sight seeing trip! Between the two of us we ordered Lobster Tacos and Tempura Prawns with creamy spicy sauce as entree. Then... More

Ok, the food was excellent. All of it. But the restaurant was chaotic, noisy and felt cheap. Maybe that's because we were in a casino complex. If they did the tables up nicely (tablecloths would add something?) and broke the space into smaller sections, this could be a very special restaurant. Right now, though, I don't feel that it was...

We tried a lot and could not fault a thing! Started with the Miso and it was light and flavoursome. Then we had an assortment of sushi and sashimi, including Toro sashimi, salmon sushi and crab sashimi. All delightful. Next was the lobster, slow cooked pork belly and the roasted broccoli, I was in a food lovers paradise at this... More

The bento boxes were lovely, very tasty and wonderful! Really enjoyed the meal.....the staff who brought and served the dishes were informative and great. The waiter who took the orders and "looked after" the table was lackadaisical......not up to the care and service in NY or London, unfortunately.

Outstanding food is what Nobu is known for: consistent quality and great variety of flavours. The staff was friendly and helped us navigate the menu, recommending dishes when we were in doubt. The restaurant fell short in providing a warm ambience and it felt like we were eating in an airport cafeteria rather than a world class fine dining establishment.
