    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
