I had my share of good meals at the various Nobu's from Los Angeles to Bahamas and Europe. I was expecting a pretty decent meal at the Dubai one in the Atlantis. Let's be honest, it was not an outstanding meal, far from it. I doubt it was an off night. It seems this is the best they can do.... More

I went there casually to have a drink and was very impressed. Honours the reputation of Nobu as a fine dining restaurant and has fantastic bartenders. They really know how to mix a great drink.

So everyone knows that if you're going to brunch in Dubai, you have to experience Nobu at least once. It was worth it as a one time experience, however I wouldn't recommend it as a regular brunching venue as it can burn a hole in your wallet. Atmosphere: Modern & Chic Food: I love the whole a la carte concept,... More

Had the best ever meal here. The food left my taste buds tingling for more. Especially the Black Cod and the White bait marinated in lime and drizzleed with olive oil then sprinkled with freeze dried Japanese lime zest and freeze dried soya. Yumm 😋. The staff were fantastic. Had a brilliant time there. Definitely going to the one in... More

I am a frequent visitor of both Matsuhisa in LA and Nobu restaurants all over the world. I love their menu and food quality in general. However after visiting Dubai location a few times before and having no problems I was very disappointed this time. The prices were as high as ever, but the food quality was just not there.... More

Visited Nobu with my husband was really excited as I have heard a lot of hype about this place but I must say it was awful !!! Worst meal we had throughout our 10 days in Dubai & was also the most expensive meal we had too. Service was awful we were there for almost three hours purely down to... More

This is our second time eating at Nobu in the Atlantis, the first time wasn't great and we were hoping it was just bad luck and this time it would be better, how wrong we were. The food is excellent, but extremely overpriced, perhaps to be expected of a resort restaurant, so the service provided should add that special touch.... More

Not as good as Nyc and London, the atmosphere differs, but understandably this is in a hotel. I have dined here several times now, and would akways recommend!

Start with a salmon new style sashimi and a lobster salad with spicy lemon, do not miss the main dish... The famous Black Cod Yuzu Miso... By far among the best dishes I have ever tasted, my wife had sushi, great choice as well! End it with a guilty chocolate bento box or a Qronut, simply divine!!! Would definitely come... More
