The food at Nobu is fantastic, especially the Black cod, it is so good we ordered it twice! But this Nobu location lacks the atmosphere and great customer service you get at the other locations, especially NYC. The place is over run with screaming children if you are there before 9pm, the staff is rushed and makes no effort to... More

First experience at Nobu was on 28 Dec - my husband booked us a lovely table for 2 to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter was fantastic and we chose such delectable delights from the extensive menu and enjoyed every single one of them. The skill of the Chef and superior quality of the produce was very apparent. And our waiter... More

Had the omakase for two, and wasn't disappointed. The true standout was the black cod, it I could eat a dish over and over and over again, that would be it. Each course was excellent, we took the largest omakase (I waddled out feeling fatter than a fat guys sock), so won't go hungry. I could have done without the... More

The variety and flavours offered by the Omakase is true testament to Nobu’s innovative style, so I am thrilled to read you opted for this menu during your recent visit to Nobu and most importantly that it didn’t disappoint. We look forward to welcoming you back again... More

Poor food quality, not generous portions, forgot one of our orders, very slow service, waitresses seemed to judge people who looked classy and did not deliver full service (eg. Offer a knife and fork to us but did to others)

Excellent as always. Great food and great atmosphere with really good music thanks to a wonderful DJ. The cod is always the absolute best thing of the evening but everything else follows close behind. Love it

If you haven't been and your in the area go, this really isn't one to miss, when we got there we didn't like where we were sat sandwiched between 2 other couples, we asked to move and no problem, the beef with garlic chips is the best beef iv ever eaten, the wagyu and foie gras dumplings we out of...

Thank you for your fantastic review, Niki. I am delighted to read you had a 5 star experience at Nobu, receiving the exceptional service standards and quality of food Nobu aspires to. I was particularly pleased to learn you found the Beef Tataki to be the ‘best beef’ you’ve ever eaten and that the Short Ribs were ‘cooked to perfection’.... More

We expected Nobu's standard and service. Our food arrived 45 minutes later and not with the same quality that characterizes Nobu. We arrived without a reservation and they offered us a bar table even though there were other tables available at the moment. If back in Melbourne definitely won't go back.

Felt rushed. Waiter could not speak very clear English, thus could not relay the dishes to us with clarity. The result we received some good dishes but also one very bad, bland dish.

Been to Nobu overseas and the one in Melbourne a few times now. Sure, it's expensive but the food is delicious and service always great. I'd recommend trying Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, the Nobu Tacos (sashimi style), the Black Cod Miso and for dessert the Whiskey Cappuccino. Grab some sake to have with your meal and finish off with a... More

Went to the much anticipated Nobu restaurant to celebrate recently. The general ambiance of the restaurant was a little disappointing. Music was way too loud and made it difficult to hear people on our table without raising our voices to try and compete with the music. Asked the wait staff to assist with some specific dietary requirements, which they did... More
