Expensive but good

Similar to the one in NYC, consistent good food. Very good off menu udon soup for my young son. Ahi poke wasn't bad but nothing compared to the ones in Ulu Oecan Grill and Sushi Lounge on the big island.

To be truthful, none of our Japanese friends consider Nobu to be a true Japanese restaurant. I'll let others debate the truth of the statement. We have found the restaurant to have excellent quality sushi, but the main strength of its menu is the creative and innovative dishes that it serves. There is a hamachi appetizer (served with jalapenos) that... More

We heard that this was an amazing place, and with our daughter loving sashimi, we tried this out one dinner and we're rewarded by great food, great service and ambiance. Bigeye, Bluefin, Salmon, etc. were all amazing with unique preparation and tastes. The service is very engaging. They explain the menu, how the food are prepared, etc. and gives you... More

Visiting Honolulu necessitated a visit to Nobu's... We had been to the location at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas a few times and always had great food, so-so service. Landon took fabulous care of my wife and I at the Honolulu location. We had edamame, yellowtail jalapeño , rock shrimp and the black pepper cod--all tasted amazing and... More

Tried the $180 7 course dinner. Highlight was the wagu steak and half lobster. If u like raw fish this is the best option to try different fish in different sauces. All were fresh and flavoursome. Good service

We visited three times during our recent trip to Waikiki. Drink and food selection was outstanding and they were served with a very friendly smile.

High end new style Japanese restaurant. Within expectation and food is quite good ( Hong Kong branch is better but more expensive ). Worth a visit if don't mind paying top prices.

I have tried a few Nobu's around the world, so knew what to expect. Service was quick and friendly but our guests didn't appreciate that the food comes out at different times at Nobu's, so they were not impressed. Portions are tasty with amazing flavors, but serving sizes are tiny. If you go to this restaurant, go knowing what you're... More

We have been to this Nobu twice before and the standard of service , food and ambience never fails. The restaurant was as usual fully booked and busy. We were placed on a small table where there was little effective air con - but were rapidly and graciously moved to a table near the bar. Started with cocktails and decided... More
