Nobu, the world’s most recognised Japanese restaurant is known for its innovative new-style Japanese cuisine.

Step into the contemporary and stylish surroundings of Nobu Melbourne and experience the creative flavours from head chef Christopher Shane Chan Yai Ching and his talented team.

Guests may enjoy the wide range of superb cocktails, sake and wine from the bar, overlooking the stunning river views.

Nobu started as a business partnership in 1994 between chef Nobu Matsuhisa, his partners actor Robert De Niro, producer Meir Teper and managing partner Richie Notar. With the original restaurant in New York, the Nobu brand is now currently established in many locations around the world including London, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Milan, Hong Kong and Waikiki. 

Nobu restaurants continue with unprecedented praise and rave reviews from such notable publications as the New York Times, the Zagat Surveys, and the Michelin Guide. The restaurants’ perennial popularity and devoted following are a tribute to Nobu putting his own personal spin on traditional Japanese cooking.
