We were very excited about dining in another Nobu but had a very disappointing lunch experience. Restaurant itself is beautifully appointed in a high-end, serene Japanese style with the sushi bar and kitchen in reassuringly open view. However, sushi experience is not what you might expect in Nobu New York or in a hidden Ginza location. This Nobu is somewhat... More

We stopped in as we passed Nobu in Budapest and knew we'd receive great food and service as we usually do. Our bartender, Attila, made us immediately feel welcome. He made perfect recommendations for wine & dessert. He was honest, social-able and a delight, exactly what we needed for our late night cap.

While visiting Budapest with friends, my friend suggested we try Nobu while we were there as to get into the London one would need a long lead time for booking. Now I have heard about Nobu, but am not a sushi lover, unlike my friend. So at 4p.m we visited to see if we could get a reservation and they... More

This place is part of global franchise. Interior is inferior compered to main hotels lobby and other facilities. As for food I would next time opt for sushi as it was superb and better option than main courses. Service is nice, so is the price (considering hotel and city very far from genuine seafood supply). Will come again.

Located inside the Kempinsky hotel this is a franchise of the famous international chain. The Japanese-ness ends at the name: None of the staff members let alone the guests are Japanese, neither is the atmosphere nor the food. That being said, most dishes are of excellent quality and demonstrate a high standard of culinary craftsmanship - albeit from the world... More

This was our splurge dinner while on European vacation. We wanted to take advantage of exchange rate and try a high end restaurant. We did not have any dress clothes to go to Onyx or other Michelin star places. Casual clothes were acceptable at Nobu. Our hotel made a reservation for us the same day. We were a bit early... More

Having eaten at other Michelin recommended restaurants, we expected more. While the food was good, there was no "wow" factor. The price of the meal did not reflect the quality expected of the food. Do not order the lemonade, it tasted more like lemon juice than lemonade. Very sour.

This was my 1st Nobu experience. My first impression was that i may not like the food but once i got a hand selecting my meal i was very pleasantly suprised. My big fear was the chopsticks as i am not one for chopsticks but thankfully the lovely waitor gave me "special Chopsticks" ie easier to use ones. I have... More

Worste Japanese place I've been to. Over priced and horrible food. Per piece of sushi at 6 euros or something ridiculous like that. Min order 6. Wth. Food sucked too. New style sashimi is a joke.
