    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 👍

    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!

    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.

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

    Loved my nine course meal here! It was definitely fine dining, with the highest quality food. Food was just delicious and beautifully served!

    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.

    Amazing food!!! The fish is a must! If you don't know what to get, the waiters&waitresses will give you a selection of dishes :) just sit & eat & enjoy

    The spanner crab tacos is a must have!

    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.

    It was good typical nobu but tapas style for lunch

    Sea urchin shooters are a must have!

    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

  • Matt G.

    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.

    Enjoyable food in the setting of a money machine. House music in the basement blasting its way through 150 chattering guests.

    Try the hot and cold appetisers, the rest is ordinary fare. Salmon carpaccio was to die for.

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

    Julian Healey · October 10, 2010

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