A must for sushi lovers

Located in the Kempinski, so one can expect a certain standard. However, compared to Nobu Hong Kong it was less cozy, more noisy... The sushi, ceviche and tartare were very good and priced accordingly (good for price/quality).

I have been to Nobu in London and Las Vegas and had high expectations. We had a big group (20 or so) business dinner. Selected the tasting menu for 35000/person in local currency (NOBU CHEF'S OMAKASE). Overall we had an OK experience however: - sushi roll had too much rice - foie gras was completely overdone and some pieces were... More

To those who said not enough vegetarian, my wife was given 5-6 courses by the chef. the Sashimi was to die for. The service excellent. The Tofu, though good, was the only thing I could fault as it would not soak in the sauce. the chocolate ball with a caramel sauce poured on it melted and the flavours of chocolate,... More

Great place. I had the tiradito octopus and the rock shrimp. They were both out of this world. Service was exceptional. .

The food is great, best susies, combined interestingly with south-american cuisine, nice wines. A luxury, restaurant, but more friendly environment than in many other high-end places, great for a date, attentive but not pushy service, good knowledge food and wines but not snobby, it was a lovely experience

Great Japanese food the fish is especially good but it is not cheap. It is a place you would eat at for a special occasion not a regular place to visit if a business traveller. Great to celebrate at

Very simple but gorgeous restaurant, elegant interior and very friendly staff. We had both hot meals which were really yummy, plus the mini wagyu beef burger, and the chocolate Fondant desert, this has completed our stay in Budapest. Very recommendable!

No surprise that the food at Nobu was superb. The salmon was just great. Didn't seem like fresh wasabi was served but rather it seemed like the usual old paste. The Hungarian beer I had was nothing to remember.
