“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

One of the best resturants in the world. The yellow tail starter is magnificent. Try the tampura lobster/prawns, you will be hooked.

“Well done Mr. Nobu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

My wife and I tried two different tasting menus, and both were great. Plate after plate, 14-15 together and we couldn't find an average one. It's pricey, but food taste really good. I was also in Nobu in London, but this one was better, from decor, atmosphere to the food.

“lovely as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

the food was lovely (as always when one goes to a Nobu restaurant) but they should consider having a sake pairing set menu at the Dubai branch (like they have f.e. in Cape Town).

“useless”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Inside the Atlantis complex (a family-oriented Las Vegas-style resort), Nobu is definetely not good as usual in terms of decor and food quality. In Dubai there are better choices for Japanese/fusion food.
