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

Step into the contemporary, stylish surroundings of Nobu Melbourne and experience the creative flavours showcased by head chef Sean Tan and his talented team.

Guests may enjoy the wide range of superb cocktails, sake and wine from the bar, overlooking 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. The original restaurant opened in New York and from there the Nobu brand is now 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 the personal spin that Nobu has put on traditional Japanese cooking.
