Another gem restaurant by the celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa, with delicious food and faultless service. Salmon sashimi, lobster salad, rock shrimp tempura, signature black cod and lobster wasabi pepper sauce were all dishes out of this world. We had cocktails instead of wine which also were fantastic. A must restaurant in Honolulu!

My family and I had dinner at Nobu recently and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was wonderful, so fresh and full of flavour. The service was also first rate. Definitely not inexpensive but a wonderful treat.

Worst service ever! Food was ok. I. Really wanted it to be great! Ate in bar area. But waiters at Denny's are better than what we got! Celebrating a birthday and the birthday dessert was a piece of jello! Never going back!!

It's a new location in Honolulu & different from the usual menu, it's has "nobu now" menu that is special to Honolulu only. Poke was especially nice and the highlight in terms of food was definitely this truffle seasoned Alaskan crab. Fantastic service by Zhou, he accommodated our needs extremely well and efficiently, knowledgeable as well. 👍👍👍👍👍

Well, this was supposed to be a culinary evening with exclusive food and wonderful tastes. But it wasn't. Nobu is so hyped but in reality it is average. We tried six different dishes but nothing was even close to spectacular. Except the prices. Way to expensive for what you get. The food itself gets 3 points, but compared to the... More

Good sushi but does not compare to the Nobu in NY in experience or food quality. We went a few times but not the same if you expect it to be.

I was hoping for a fantastic culinary journey and especially so given the price and hype surrounding Nobu. I don’t mind paying top end prices for good produce and good service and an atmosphere. This is a newer member of the franchise, the bar area is great, outdoors and despite being on a busy road it was reasonably quiet. The... More

Wife and I ate here and ordered the Honolulu Chef's Menu. It was a multi course meal of items that put Nobu on the map, with a concentration on local ingredients. We had a mix of sushi, Waygu steak, salad, sashimi, and an Nobu version of Creme Brûlée. It was $160 per person not including alcohol. It was a multi... More

Worth the money. Everything was incredible. So fresh and light. Best ceviche ever. Awesome rock shrimp. Must do in any city where there is a Nobu - I always enjoy and this one did not disappoint. Note the new location - 10 minute cab from Waikiki beach hotels (check online because old location is showing up here).

Having tried many times to get into a Nobu around the world we were surprised when we could get a booking a couple of nights out at this location. It has recently moved from Waikiki beach, to it's new location near Ala Moana shopping centre. The food here was fantastic. We don't mind paying more for well executed and slightly... More
