I heard very good stories of this restaurant, but honestly did not see anything special! Nothing really special, sushi was nice, not amazing and the restaurant doesn't really have atmosphere! One day before I was in Buddha bar, which was great, but I expected Nobu to be even better, too high expectation I guess.

This is a shocking experience. If you have been to any other Nobu you will find this place a disappointing experience. I sat at the bar and had sushi. It was Airport quality at best. The dining room is noisy and brash. There must be a limitless pool of people with cash to burn to keep this place in business-... More

Summary: Decent food with some nice highlights and we had a good time. Service a bit shaky. Not worth the high price + one of us got very sick afterwards. Full review: We were four friends who went for the Friday brunch. The restaurant is quite dark and could use an update, it felt a bit old. Welcoming was nice... More

This restaurant was in our hotel so we ate here for convenience on out last night, and as I wanted to compare it against my local place in london ;) Food was outstanding as expected, but we felt the staff confused us with the 'taster menu' to make us pay more money as the bill was a horrendous price (...

I have visited this Nobu several times and have never been disappointed...well at least not very disappointed... The decor feels cave-like with its dark entrance. The purple silhouette lighting on the black pebble wall further enhances this feeling, and somehow the curved woven wooden false roof further embeds this feeling. The only part of the restaurant which does not fell... More
