Located in the ground floor of the Kempinsky Hotel, this branch of Nobu may be something of a disappointment for those who know Nobu in other cities. But the good news is: It's much cheaper too - save for Nobus Signature Omakase and Nobu Chef's Omakase! But let's take one step after another. The bad news is that the place... More

I visited Nobu a few days ago and initially wanted to try out the lunch menu (there are some very good deals at the moment) but ended up going for dinner. I ordered the Yellowfin tuna sashimi which was just as I had remembered - divine. However, despite only being served 6 thin slices of a huge fish, it's not... More

We went to this Budapest branch of the Nobu restaurant dynasty. It certainly did NOT let us down! We got the Chef's Omakase Menu, and it was excellent! A fantastic night that is highly recommended!

Hungarinized Sushi experience. This NOBU is heavy on Teriyaki and other salty sauces. A good piece of salmon was ruined by heavy-handed thick Teriyaki. Waiter wanted to charge for replacement with a simply grilled piece and was argumentative. Overall, very ordinary food and ambience compared to NOBUs elsewhere. You could replicate it with any strip center sushi dining in the... More

Nobu is part of the Kempinski Hotel in Budapest. I went with my boyfriend in our trip to Budapest. Service was brilliant and our waiter was genuine and friendly. We had a beautiful ceviche which was very well executed. We had a stunning truffle and spinach salad, sushi selection And of course the famous black cod. Perfectly cooked and presented.... More

One of the best sushi restaurants outside of Tokyo. Very fresh and delicious. A bit expensive but they do have lunch specials (weekdays) and a bento special (everyday)

Chotto takai little expensive. Miso flavor was unknown to me. My wife a Colombiana makes a killer miso shiru. The rice was a little gooy and the fish lacked a little more firmness tempura was ok. I wouldn't mind eating there again if it was cheaper
