“Absolutely stunning Mmmmmm!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

Just came back from Dubai and the Emirates and my son took me to Nobu's in the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai. We ordered the Chef's table 14 courses this was the best meal I think I have ever had. Every single mouthful was absolutely stunning the presentation was a work of art. The only downside was there was so much food by the 5th or 6th course I started to fail. The quality of each course just got better and better, lobster, wago beef, black cod, I could go on and on and the desserts oh my Mmmmmmmm! I would highly recommend this restaurant and the non alcoholic cocktails a Must... coconut and apple absolutely stunning and the cucumber and lemon. Now I am home nagging hubby to take me to Nobu's in London, Japanese food at its finest.

“Great first time but then only ok - which isnt great for the price!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

The first time i went it was not long after the restaurant opened and the food was amazing. The second time the service was not great and they were out of alot of the sashimi and sushi! However, the chocolate fondant dessert with pistachio ice cream is to die for!!! There are better places to eat for less money in dubai.

“Disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Last night we had dinner at Nobu. We have been guest of Nobu all over the world and are regular sushi eaters. Nobu Dubai was a dramatic and disgusting experience. The restaurant looks nice once you enter the place, music maybe a bit too clubby but ok lets give them some credits. We had lots of sushi to start with. All rolls had very weak sea weed aboslutely not crispy how it should be. The meat crab inside the california rolls was old and tasted like rotten fish. We immediately called out for the manager who explained that sea weed always turns out to become soft and weak after 30 minutes. Wow what an explanation. Instead of offering us new food he only took it of our bill. We left the place hungry. Not quite the experience you would expect at a brand that prestigious. My recommendation: DONT EAT AT NOBU DUBAI!!

“Good restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012 via mobile

Excellent reviews had meant this was a must visit during our stay in Dubai.
Service was ok but not the same attention would receive at Jumeriah residence! Food however was excellent.
Nice place but will not return unless special occasion!

“Out of this world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

We went on a fine dine date night to Nobu and enjoyed every single moment from the starter to the dessert. The service was absolutely amazing and we were served by a guy from Australia who made us feel very comfortable and at ease when choosing a bottle of wine!

Keep up the good work!!!!!
