We were lucky to go to Nobu for a late lunch during the Australia Tennis Open. We had such a great time that we went back again. The staff was very nice and helpful and the food was great. Nice location!

We visited for a very special occassion - a 30th birthday and had a very enjoyable experience! We did a 7 course omakase set menu. Although a little pricey, everything was prepared meticulously and presentation was stunning. Everything was explained to us and the waitstaff very knowledgeable. My one complaint is the noise! The music makes you feel like you... More

The food here is great but you feel like you're in a bit of a food hall. We just had a dinner with share plates with a half bottle of wine and the bill was $640 for 2 ppl + tip. Small tables, average service, noisy and food comes out way too quick.

I love Nobu. Love the atmosphere, love the food, love the decor. We were with a group of 5. I invited the other patrons. The waiter made a recommendation in sharing dishes. He asked for the budget I wanted to spend. And guess what, it was actually slightly below! The waiter took into consideration ALL our needs and wishes. Fine,... More

My wife wanted to surprise me for my birthday with a special treat at Nobu and we were both utterly disappointed. I have tasted Black cod in miso ( nobu signature dish) in Bali's restaurant Ku De Ta, and let me tell you no comparison. Ku De Ta chef knows how to prepare Black Cod in miso. Crispy on the... More

Arrived Nobu for lunch with family and my "Japanese" wife to enjoy some fine cuisine. I should have listened to the other reports on here and Urbanspoon. Two people ordered bento boxes which came reasonably quick, another ordered prawns which arrived 20 min later, another ordered Wagyu which arrived 60 minutes later and another ordered barramundi which arrived 75 min...

In a great location.. great food. good crowd. but the staff need to be more friendly. Ordered a few drinks and tried lots of food. Was very good. slightly expensive, but worth it. Hated the staff trying to rush us out, but otherwise must try in Melbourne

Crown complex holds many dining choices, some Fine Dining, some casual, and there is Nobu! GoodJapanese leaves a feeling of contentment and well being. There is no doubt the fish elements are all fresh, but nothing outstanding. Miso Cod is a dish the Martin Benn at Sydney's Sepia does superbly, but here the elements do not all work together. Rice...

it was overpriced but we don't really care what the bill comes to if we've enjoyed the restaurant, the food and the staff. couldn't believe how much of a let down this place was. we ordered room service as soon as we got back to the hotel. Go anywhere but here people!
