Still good

I hadn't been there for at least 10 years but stepped in spontaneously yesterday for some sushi. I think that it was still good and I liked the service. Not cheap and probably not the best Jap in town but better than what you get from most sushi restaurants in Kiev.

We were worried when we read the previous reviews about the quality of the food, but we gave it a try. The external look of the restaurant is not encouraging. It looks like a simple touristic sushi bar. But we liked the interior, which is very simple and modest. The service was excellent. It was special lobster weekend but we... More

My wife and i had lunch her thinking Nobu in Kiev would be on par with , Nobu in Manhattan and Malibu California! Although satisfied with our meal make no mistake this restaurant is no where near the US restaurants. You can experience infinitely better in the food court in the Globe mall on Independent Square!

Our waiter was inattentive and rude, while talking to us (we were asking about a dish from the menu) she suddenly turned away and left to escort people who just arrived to their table. Warm sushi with lobster were too hard and overcooked, unfiltered sake that used to be the best in the city is no longer good (not as... More

Lower then my expectations. The food is the best you can get in Ukraine but not the level in Europe. Have sushi and sashimi to be on the safe side. Any temputa is good. Duck is not the Nobu standart.

Some excellent Sushi & Japanese dishes ..... the Rolls are still better in Shooters. Service is good, staff are nice .... I like this place. BUT, it's a bit pricey, which is the reason I only eat there occassionally.

Kiev is teeming with restaurants with sushi on the menu. The atmosphere in this restaurant is very cosy and it seemed well visited by business people. Having tried sushi in different cities in the world, it is not the best and the price is higher compared to Brussels or Paris for example, but the service is good and the warm... More
