    Great ambience and service. Miso Cod, New Style Sashimi, Wagyu Steak with 3 sauces, scallops, Braised Pork Belly are fresh & great. Signature Masterchef Sushis and Maki are let down. Trio of Mochis 👍

    When the black cod miso, wagyu gyoza and white fish sashimi are cleared away, you still get that frisson of the palate. Y’know, to tide you over until the chocolate bento box arrives. Read more

    Sushi and sashimi below par for Jap restaurant. Service was great. Miso cod excellent. Tempura prawns were soggy. Desserts amazing.

    The best Japanese restaurant in Melbourne! All the food here is awesome and there's a good selection of cocktails on the bar menu too - try the Sake Bomb!

    The food was incredible, the tempura broccoli being a highlight, while the salmon was perfectly cooked. It may be on the expensive side, but it was worth every cent.

    Great, personalised service; fresh fish; lovely decor; expensive. This pretty much sums up Nobu, doesn't it? Here is a chef hand crafting my meal.

    Really good soft shell crab. The salmon sashimi with coriander sauce is a blast. Finish the dinner with a scoop of pineapple-shosu sorbet, astringent and refreshing. A bit pricy but very good service.

    A seat at the sushi bar is where the action is. For great food theatre, eat there. Great saki cocktails too - worth trying.

    You MUST get the miso marinated cod, it's the signature dish. Absolutely unbelievable. Melt in your mouth stuff. Sensational.

    Their wagyu cappacio is a highlight and so is their desert. However, don't go there during lunch time as their menu is different and is more like cheaper bento boxes which you can get from anywhere.

    The bento boxes on the lunch menu are nice, but overpriced. There are other Japanese fine dining restaurants that offer same quality but lesser prices.

    Heartbreakingly expensive considering the reputation, food was not as good as we thought considering there is a neat little take away place on the same level.

    Very average service - while we waited for a roll (that they forgot about) we saw two tables that got the wrong items and one that mixed two tables orders up. There were only 4 tables in total.

    My 2nd time here, and 3rd Nobu. The food is consistent with the others, as in its amazing, but the service is the worst. Poorly paced meals and lots of attitude.

    Avoid unless you win big at the casino. Ridiculously overpriced for what it is.
