Good veg sushi

I recommend the avocado sushi, it is the best avocado sushi I've ever had. I also liked the Hungarian white wine; a bit too dry for me, but an interesting subtle flavor. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant, but not overly posh. The service is attentive, quick and polite, not at all intrusive. The... read more

Visted Nobu for first time with high expectations and certainly wasn't disappointed!! The staff were really knowledgeable about all the menu and willing to offer guidance. A great experience!

We ordered the omakase for the 3 of us, and we were not disappointed. The food was really good, but there was way too much. The fois gras was ok but again there was too much, and it was just the second course. We could have done without. The Wagyu steak as the last course before desert was the best,... More

A little luxury, great sushi, great atmosphere and helpful, knowledgable staff! It's the best sushi I've had in Budapest but definitely a lot better in Europe. It's expensive, not sure that it's worth it but overall I've always had a good experience here.

Friendly, not overbearing service, amazing food - they have most of the nobu menu, but didn't have the truffle salad, so they substituted it with a warm mushroom salad for me which was amazing. I spotted some Hungarian twists on dishes on the menu but didn't try. The service was lovely and the waiters very attentive but not in your... More

Nobu, where have you been all my life? The Hungarian, salmon niguri topped with a thick slice of Hungarian foie gras is to die for. Not trying to be dramatic, but it's one of the best sushi I've ever had. Every restaurant should serve this, but if Nobu is the only one, I will be back!

Nobu is situated in the Hilton hotel on the Pest side of the river. We had various items off the menu from california rolls too rainbow rolls. Very good and can see why it is so popular

I have been here a couple of times because I live in Hungary (but not in Budapest) and sometimes I do want to eat sushi. Yes, this is probably one of the finest in the country, but when compared to sushi restaurants in some other capital cities in Europe, it is simply just not good. I have taken my sisters... More

We didn't think we would end up eating sushi in Budapest until we came across Nobu's. We ended up sitting at the sushi bar for three hours and came away thinking what an amazing evening that was. We opted for the Onomase Speciality and Onomase Premium. The selection, the variety, the presentation, the pace of the meal, all of it... More
