“Another lovely meal at Nobu Waikiki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I returned to Nobu this year after a great meal in 2012 and was not disappointed. It wasn't as busy as last time, maybe as it was a Tuesday night.

Great food, good service and great restaurant space!!!

Definitely worth visiting!

“Best meal I've ever had.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

There isn't much to say but that i had a amazing 6 course dinner that was just amazing from start to beginning. This is definitely a place you want to save some money for but it is well worth every savory bite of mind blowing food.

“Not as good as previous visits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We were very excited to eat at Nobu having eaten previously at Nobu Melbourne. The service was great and the food lovely but we werent blown away. It was no where near as good as Melbourne. The seating was very crowded too, since we dined as a couple either side of us were two more couples and our tables nearly joined. Very frustating as I could hear their conversation as well as my husbands.
I probably wouldnt dine here again when I return to Waikiki.

“We visited three times in 6 nights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

My wife loves Nobu and whilst I am not such a die-hard follower it’s hard to argue with the quality of the food, drink and service that you receive here.
We have a Nobu restaurant in Melbourne but it is completely inferior to this one... in every way.
OK, let’s go through the main points one by one:
1) We come early (5-5.30pm) to take advantage of the cocktail happy hour and to make sure that my 4 year old get fed on time.
2) On this trip we just ate in the bar area everytime (easier to keep my son amused and less intrusive to other customers)
3) The staff were incredibly friendly and courteous and took great pains to make sure that my son was happy and took the effort to engage with him, to which he responded beautifully. By our second visit we were greeted by name when we walked in, and we were asked if we wanted our 'usual'. I felt like Norm walking into Cheers. Flattery does work.
4) The drinks - we relied on the staff to recommend cocktails and with one exception they were all on the money. We especially loved the Blood Orange, Liliko'i Margarita and Peruvian Caipirinha. The by the glass wine was good as well.
5) The food is excellent. We particularly enjoyed the Black Cod Saikyo Miso, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, Eggplant with Miso and the Beef Tobanyaki but the highlight was the Kurobuta Pork Belly with Spicy Miso. It was that good we came back three times and we got lots of jealous SMS’s from friends back in Australia when they found out.
Is it expensive? Yes it is, but you've got to live a little haven't you... sometimes you just have to sign the check without paying too much notice to the total… But in saying that I would strongly suggest that you do check the total as sometimes they add a tip to the bill and sometimes they don’t.

“Yummy but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Every dish we had was excellent. But you need to rob a bank to eat here. We only went as it was a special occasion. Between two people we ate US$140 of food and were still hungry hours later
