“great Friday night tapas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

We didn't like the look of the down stairs restaurant, small and no views....but for a Friday night happy hour overlooking the Yarra it is exceptional. We enjoyed complimentary canapés - a series of 5 servings of bite-sized Nobu’s signature dishes, such as pork belly, black cod with miso, scallops, oysters, sashimi and sushi served as you enjoy a wine or cocktail at the end of the week.

“Nice food but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is a famous Jap restaurant at the Crown so we thought we would give it a try. Brought mum there for her birthday.
Food was nice - nice colours, taste good and good presentation. Service was good. But not somewhere we will go for a weekend meal, for example. It just hurts the pocket too much. Will go there for special occasion, but then again, there are still a few fancy restaurants on my "to-try" list....

“Japanese South American Fusion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The food was fresh, simple and of a high quality. The service was okay although our main waiter was difficult to understand. We had Sashimi & other raw fish dishes & sushi & some beef which were all delicious. This place is not cheap, lunch for two was around $270.00

“Good night but not as exceptional as I had expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We had a group booking, 28 people with a multiple choice set menu.

Firstly, I found the restaurant very noisy and not as up market as I had expected it to be. The staff were friendly but not as attentive for drinks etc., our selection of dishes were ok but again nothing that I would have expected from all the advertising of Nobu.

I enjoyed the night, more becaue of the company at our table and not because of where we were and the food we had experienced - and this is not a cheap place.
