Nobo is always a spot for our family to celebrate. Wonderful, delicious modern Japanese food. The staff is always attentive and accommodating. The atmosphere is wonderful for a family gathering or intimate dining.

As expected, the tempura dish wasn't as crispy because of being in a box. Ok. I also got the crab Rangoon. Worst I've ever had. And that says something right there! I've ordered it in any restaurant that serves it. I've also made from scratch...from the creators recipe. This was like only cream cheese in a fried purse. No crab, no flavor. The last thing I ordered was the pineapple fried rice, which I've yet to try. I'll hold off on that for now. From my experience, I wouldn't bother going or ordering from them again.More

My husband and I had been craving sushi for months and the cheap/easy/ supermarket options were not cutting it. This place is our new go to for sure! Unbelievably delicious and fresh!

A friend who lives in this area brought us there, and we've been back already for a second time. Pretty much anything on the menu is awesome. We've gone in for a full dinner and another time just for apps and noodles. Looking forward to...going again when full seating is available.More

What a beautifully decorated restaurant. But what really counts is the food and that did not disappoint. Met another couple here and we all enjoyed our selections. Lunch Menu offers a NoBowl Special for $12.95 that has such a large portion. Its a choice of...entree, rice/noodle, sauce and appetizer! We also tried their sushi and really enjoyed it. Very fresh. Waiter was very helpful and patient with us. Would absolutely come back here again.More

Another awesome dinner at Nobo. We try to eat here every time we are in the area. The food is awesome and the service impeccable. We are welcomed like family. The appetizers are delicious, I highly recommend the Pork Buns, Sumo Civachi, and the Spicy...Edamame. Our party of seven had a a variety of entries, the Classic Bento Box and the Chefs special sushi were excellent entrees. We visit family in Woburn several times each year and always make Nobo a dining destination.More

Our second visit to Nobo. A family party of 7. We were graciously welcomed. The Japanese Old-fashioned was delightfully tart. Those who had sweeter melon flavored drinks found them delicious. The pork roll, calamari and edamame appetizers were beautifully presented and very tasty. Everyone raved...about their entrees which included salmon, shrimp, sushi, ahi tuna, and others. This has become a favorite place for family gatherings. I wish we lived closer, but be assured it will be high on our list any time we are in northeast MA.More

We met the owners of this restaurant in Italy, while on vacation. Back home when we came to Woburn to visit our son we had to visit their restaurant. There were five in our party, the menu was overwhelming, so many delicious looking dishes! We...had the Salt and Pepper Calamari and Pork Buns for appetisers, delicious. For entrees we had Duck, Pork, Salmon and Sushi, all of which were delicious. The beautiful decor added to our enjoyment. If you like Asian food this place is great. We will be back, not soon enough, wish it was in our town.More

We ate here last Saturday. Two of us had sushi and the other had udon noodles. We all thought that the food and drinks were top notch - however the service was very, very slow. It took quite a while for our drink order and...we all had empty glasses for about 10 minutes until the server stopped by to ask if we wanted a refill. Then it took another 10 minutes or so to fill the drink order. It seemed that our server had way too many tables.More

Had the avocado salad which had the right amount of spice and the Chelmsford maki roll which had several spiced fish with a good sauce. Everything was balanced and well prepared. The green tea mochi was good. This is a recommended addition to the Chelmsford...dining scene.More
