We had visited another Nobu before, so we knew what to expect. It was up to our expectation. We had a 9 course tasting menu which was good. However the ambience didn't match the modern fusion food it served, the interior design was more like an American casual family oriented restaurant. The staff served very promptly but with a little bit rush when they tried to explained what they served in each course.

Had dinner there for valentines. Spectacular food- modern Japanese/ South American. Not even a fan of raw fish but was eating it and savouring every bite. Beautiful venue, food presentation, perfect flavours that melt in your mouth, dim lighting, perfection! And the service was prompt and super professional and very very friendly. Cant recommend it enough !

Our 4th meal at Nobu and the food is as good as ever. Not cheap but the service is very good and the atmosphere is excellent. The food though is the best thing about Nobu. The chiefs choice menu's are excellent - the signature Miso Black Cod is excellent.
We will be back again for the next special occasion

Led by the hostess you are taken downstairs and whate immediately strikes you is the noise, dim lighting and inane background music. The noise made it very difficult to understand the waitress and trying to have a chat with the sommelier was a waste of time. In the end it was safe to go with the d'gustation menu rather than trying to have a conversation with the waitress. The presentation of the food was let down by the dimness of the lighting which made it difficult to appreciate the plate placed in front of you. It was fine dining prices but with a cafe type environment. The food while over-priced was exceptional and to some degree made up for the rest of the experience. I would not go again and would prefer to explore what other offerings the Crown Complex has to offer.

It is very overpriced and you end up with a bill of $200-300 per couple; however, the food is delicious.
