“Overpriced, overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

The food here is great, decent selection on the menu but not anything you wouldn't expect from a 'standard' Japanese restaurant. The wine had the most appalling mark up. Clearly a money winner but detracts from the overall experience.

The restaurant was noisy and lacked warmth, despite good attentive service there was no personality about the place.

Disappointing

“Nice but small serves and expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Great flavors in the food but like most higher end restaurants the serving size and cost was disproportionate to the price charged.The wait staff were excellent and had a great knowledge of the menu combinations which was really at the top end but the quite long wait for first courses of food to arrive was a little slow.

Worth visiting once perhaps for a special occasion or gastronomic treat.

Recommend the desert tasting tray.

Mains were about $40- 60
Corona was $10 or 11

“good food but bad ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

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.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

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 !

“One of My Favourite Restaurants in Melbourne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

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
