    Truly, I could eat here every day. They have a chef's menu that is a must try at least once. Come for more than sushi, the Black cod is over the top excellent!

    Matsuhisa the man was here the night we are in. All of the dishes are well prepared and delicious. I would ask the server for their suggestions. Tempura crab claw and all the sashimi was my fave

    Get an early reservation and take advantage of a really well priced Omakase. You may even get a chance to meet Chef Nobu himself!

    This is the best sushi on the west coast. Hands down. Low-key and casual atmosphere, but the sushi is so serious. Trust any and all recommendations.

    As flashy as his Nobu restaurants can be, as vast as his global empire has become, the heart of Nobu Matsuhisa's cooking still seems to be in his modest original sushi bar. Read more

    The chef is famous for Nobu, but this place is much better, and unassuming, without all the frills. Some of the best sushi I've ever had. The soft-shell crab roll was amazing, and super fresh!

    soft crab roll was good and made me feel full at last. They had raw octopus nigiri - it was very delicious. Desert - youkan with kinako ice was good.

    Make a reservation because the staff will be incredibly rude, rush your through your meal, and act like your money isn't worth as much to them if you don't.

    Japanese, more like fusion Peruvian-Japanese, good sushi but famous for other plates, order the "omakase" (mean's chef's choice), need reservation or take a chance at the bar, good for an occasion

    Hot dishes. Cold. Sashimi. It's all best here. The decor screams 80s and it's a nice romantic touch that it hasn't been altered at it's essence since Nobu Matsuhisa opened it in that decade.

    Nobu. I dream of the black cod. It is like butter and sugar. Ask for the sweet corn tempura. It isn't on the menu. :)

    Sit back and experience the miso-glazed black cod, the tempura rock shrimp, and, of course, the brilliant sushi that started it all. This is one of the cradles of American sushi civilization.

    If not ordering the omakase, try the Asparagus in Hollandaise sauce topped with Ikura (salmon roe). For ice cream, try the Nobu Beer.

    Matsuhisa is Nobu's family enterprise and is a hangout for old & loyal Nobu fans. Small space, lively atmosphere with equally great food as the other Nobu LA and Malibu, if you want to be seen/heard. Read more
