“Good, but definitely not great...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Well, wish I had the experience of the other reviewers. I too have had lots of sushi in varied locations and this was average to slightly better than average. Fish was fresh and tasty but portions were average to slight and rolls were loose and falling apart. Service was attentive but not friendly and no notice was paid to us by Nobu, despite the intimate atmosphere - not that that was expected, but some attention from the sushi chef has been my experience at better, small sushi establishments. .Might or might not go back..

“Best Sushi in OC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

If you are looking for high-quality sushi, no place is better than this little hole-in-the-wall. The owner, Nobu, is the only sushi chef and his wife, Amy, the only server. Don't ask for a menu - he doesn't have one. Ask the locals what to order - many specialties are named after the client who first created it. The "B Special" and "Swing Roll" are two of our favorites, but we love it all.

Simply the best sushi in OC if not all of California. This opinion is from someone who has traveled the world eating sushi.

“Nobus is awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2009

Nobus has the best sushi. It is such a traditional place. Nobus makes the sushi and his wife serves. They are very nice people and good friends of the family. Of all the sushi places I have been to, as good as they were, Nobus is top sushi. My favorite is the Cruchy Roll. Ask for it.
