Just go there, it's amazing.

Order the pork belly - you can only get it at this Nobu and is it utterly stunning.... I'm still drooling!

We hadn't been to a Nobu before, we we asked for recommendations and the waiter was great. He didn't try to over-feed us, just made some recommendations for first timers. Any boy, was he on the mark!!

Yes it was pricey but I've paid more at Raffles in Singapore for less food.

We had 5 courses (mix of hot & cold), 1 cocktail, 1 beer, 2 wines + $40 tip = $250. And I would happily pay it again in a moment just to eat that food again.

This is a special restaurant, so unless money is not an issue I'd leave the kids with a babysitter.

Just amazing.

Nobu is located off Beach Walk, a good place to stop for dinner after a day of shopping. Dinner entrée (over $30) and drinks are quite expensive, but sushi rolls are quite reasonable. We ordered their signature Black cod Miso which was excellent, prepared just right and not over-cooked. I also recommend the Tobanyaki beef, which was very tender, finished with Mochi Ice cream. Parking on Beach Walk is hard to find so the free parking is very convenient. Free valet parking is also offered with tipping expected.

My daughter ordered 3 orders of sushi rolls (18 pcs in all) and was told that it would not be enough as a meal. Well, she was quite satisfied afterwards, finished with her favourite Mochi Ice Cream.

One review here said that it is very expensive. Well it is but not outrageous. After all, Japanese food is expensive. You do have the menu to pick and choose to suit your budget. For the three of us, our bill came to $166 before tips, and we were very satisfied.

Ok so Nobu is a little pricey but it's worth it. The food we had here was the best food of our whole trip to Hawaii. Loved it!

Order the salmon tacos but order quite a few they are delicious but tiny!!!

The sashimi at Nobu is simply amazing. The freshness and the clean tastes are well worth the wait. We were able to get Tai sashimi there which was amazing. The uni sashimi was also mouth wateringly good. If you can take your attention away from the amazing sashimi, the restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff are extremely helpful. The maitre d' appears to be a snob but she is quite friendly too.
