I think I'm in the minority but this is my favourite Nobu. Sitting at the sushi counter and enjoying the white fish with dried miso, pumpkin chips with foie gras, rockfish tempura with creamy spicy sauce and the cheesecake for the finale is as good as Japanese fusion food gets for me. Magical. I appreciate the main restaurant might not... More

Food wasn't bad but it didn't live up to our expectation as we dined in Nobu elsewhere. Customer service is very good though. I noticed that they do not have a Japanese chef and food was not very Japanese. I asked for a birthday message on the desert ordered for the birthday boy and girl when I booked the table... More

One of the best pan asian dining experiences that I have had. Living in Dubai there is a huge choice of pan asian restaurants, a lot of them are superb and its hard to pick a favourite but Nobu really did take my breath away. The flavour of the food was perfectly balanced and the staff were superbly knowledgeable about... More

We ate at Nobu while visiting Dubai for a quick 3 night stay and I regret to say it was disappointing. Perhaps we're spoilt with such amazing seafood and Japanese restaurants in Sydney but in terms of the food I just wasn't impressed. Nothing stands out as being particularly bad, it just wasn't great. The crowd is mostly tourists with... More

The ambience was very polished and trendy, though the food was while certainly good and of a certain standard, not the most spectacular japanese meal I've ever had, and does not justify the prices perhaps. It was more the brand, location in the palm and the atmosphere which made it a premium dining experience. Delighted to have had the chance... More

Friendly enthusiasm would have enhanced our reception. But they are also human. Tables are economic in size. Only outmatched by waiters' memories which seem to deteriorate in correlation with guests' frequency of alcoholic repeat orders Food is good and overpriced. But if all would taste like their cheesecake we would even digest a price increase. A drinking hole for wannabes... More

It was a good experience. A nice setting, nice staff. The decoration is beautiful. A great atmosphere. The food was exceptional. I visited it with my wife and we both liked it. A great selection of food, and a wide wine selection.
