“Stuffy service with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The michelin star requires a meal of extras on top of what you order. The problem is many of these extras don't taste very good. Staff is friendly but the room is nothing special.

“Very Fine Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Whether you are a guest of the wonderful Mandarin Oriental hotel or just visiting the restaurant as a special treat, you will experience exceptional service from the extraordinary staff who are second to none. The menu is filled with creative and innovative dishes, which are delicious. The decor is understated, but very elegant and calming.

“OMG amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have been describing this meal as my favorite meal in my life to date. The bouillabaisse and foie gras were unbelievable. The amuse bouches to die for. Unreal!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Here with with the Omakase menu. Restaurant is called Nobu for the week and feature Japanese cuisines. One word - amazing. Best sushi and wagyu beef. Incredible. My wife tried four different Asian inspired cocktails and they were each spectacular. Great atmosphere and cool lounge music. Priced accordingly.

“Amazing meal but areas for improvement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I thought for Michelin awarded restaurant I would expect better wine pairing. Service was exceptional and food was great. Great starters and the fish meal was lovely! Only reason I gave a 4 is because of the price and expectation that went along with its Michelin star award
