Loved the food, a little expensive but reasonable considering location and quality of food. Staff ranged from outstanding to poor. One gave good recommendations, while another spilt water over the table and was passive rude

We were really looking forward to trying Nobu and were keen to forgive the 20 minute wait for even water to be brought to the table. It took about half an hour for an alcoholic drink order to taken and another 20minutes for the drinks to arrive at odd times. Even then we had hailed down a passing waiter. Some... More

The food at Nobu is fantastic, especially the Black cod, it is so good we ordered it twice! But this Nobu location lacks the atmosphere and great customer service you get at the other locations, especially NYC. The place is over run with screaming children if you are there before 9pm, the staff is rushed and makes no effort to... More

First experience at Nobu was on 28 Dec - my husband booked us a lovely table for 2 to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter was fantastic and we chose such delectable delights from the extensive menu and enjoyed every single one of them. The skill of the Chef and superior quality of the produce was very apparent. And our waiter... More

Had the omakase for two, and wasn't disappointed. The true standout was the black cod, it I could eat a dish over and over and over again, that would be it. Each course was excellent, we took the largest omakase (I waddled out feeling fatter than a fat guys sock), so won't go hungry. I could have done without the... More

Poor food quality, not generous portions, forgot one of our orders, very slow service, waitresses seemed to judge people who looked classy and did not deliver full service (eg. Offer a knife and fork to us but did to others)

Excellent as always. Great food and great atmosphere with really good music thanks to a wonderful DJ. The cod is always the absolute best thing of the evening but everything else follows close behind. Love it

We expected Nobu's standard and service. Our food arrived 45 minutes later and not with the same quality that characterizes Nobu. We arrived without a reservation and they offered us a bar table even though there were other tables available at the moment. If back in Melbourne definitely won't go back.
