All I'll say is do it. Eat there. Meet & talk to the staff. Try things you don't know. Do the sake. Have the amazing Bloody Mary. Nobu is an experience unto it's self. 7 years I lived in Dubai and I endorse the place, the staff, the chef, the sous chefs and the amazing, amazing, amazing food. I retain... More

Second visit to this restaurant. Was as good as the first. Ok it's not cheap - but the food is quite simply amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would not hesitate to return.

A birthday dinner with family and friends. The whole experience was flat. A large restaurant area, with lots of tables jammed in and staff who seemed to be just going through the motions. The menu is varied and looks a bit pricey, until you realize that each plate involves only a couple pieces of the items – so feeding a... More

Watch out for the dressing code. Other than that you will have a blast watching the chefs preparing your dishes in front of you. The black cod is one of the most delicious plates we ever had with my wife along with the scallops with foie gra combined with vanilla sauce. The Greek female Chef Ms Eleni Manoussou deserves the...

We have been to Nobu on a number of occasions and it remains one of our favourite restaurants in Dubai. The food is always amazing, the service is to a very high standard and the atmosphere is great! The menu consists of a wide range of food so yes you can get "just the normal sushis" but if you are... More

As far as service goes it was spot on. Food arrived in good time, everything tasted fresh and prepared to a very high standard. I especially enjoyed the way the saki was matched to you chosen meal or dessert. Recommend the passion fruit saki.

We have been to Nobu in London and this is a chip off the ol' block. Great food and actually much better service than in London. Not bad value for money if a tad on the high side. We would book again.
