Good food and nice experience

I had never been to a Nobu before and decided to try the one whilst we were in Dubai. The overall atmosphere and environment is very nice. With all Nobu's the food can be a little pricey but the black cod is amazing, it literally melts in your mouth. We also tried some of the other dishes like... read more

Fantastic dark and moody setting. We only ventured to the bar but the cocktails were out of this world. Must visit!

To start with: if you just want sushi, go somewhere else - its much cheaper for the same quality...But now: the staff is just amazing - chatty, friendly, knowing the menu and always there for you but they go invisible in the right moment. the menu of Nobu is absolute fantastic and surprises every-time with their interpretation of japanese fusion...

The food was really average. I have no idea what the hyp is about. Taste was incredibly average with no flair or elegance. One dish stood out amongst 8 ordered. Overall ambiance is cold and impersonal. Chefs in the kitchen had long old style german chefs hats on......is this Nobu? It's just strange overall to say the least.

We were not very impressed by the food. It was very packed, very noisy and honestly we are used to eat better food for that price. I guess you pay the brand rather than the food. Service was very good though

We have stayed at the Atlantis for 3 night and have spent our last night having dinner at NOBU. It was a complete adventure and we thank the waitress Carla for that. We asked her to surprise us with a mix of dishes and she succeeded. It was an explosion of tastes and all the ingredients in the plate are... More

I am really surprised at some of the reviews on here for nobu. The food was amazing, nothing to fault. The black cod is an absolute must!!!! The staff were attentive and great and recommending. The negatives, the tables were a bit cheap looking but over all the restaurant was lovely! A great experience to add to a Dubai trip!

Not very good at all. The back cod was not fresh and it was too sweet. The new style tuna had too much soy sauce on it. The service was terrible. Overall had a not good experience.

I'd always thought that the Atlantis hotel was too cheesy / family orientated for us but hey they have a Nobu restaurant how bad can it be?!. Er the answer is terrible, you walk into the hotel lobby and there are tourists everywhere taking pictures - it's a theme park not a hotel. Anyway, the bad news is that Nobu... More
