    Been to Nobu all around the world and have enjoyed them all. This one is by far the worst experience. Service was poor and we only got 2 of our several dishes after an hour of being there. Staff were friendly and understanding, and the familiarity of the food and its flavours were the saving grace. I hope this was a one-off experience that i could chalk off as this is a new establishment in Singapore.

    The restaurant is minimalist utterly gorgeous. But service was just missing eg, empty wine glasses, me waving for attention..extra glass for guest BUT no wine served until I waved again. We ordered the omakase to experience chef signature dishes. It was good but I have expectations which were not quite met. Umami missing.

    Absolutely terrible experience. Managed to get a slot at 8.30pm but table was only ready at 8.45pm. Asked 3 different waiters for water but no one brought water though they kept saying they would. Waiter got food restrictions wrong as well. Super hard to even place an order. Food was alright. But the service completely destroyed the experience.

    service was not great until we feedback to Gopi whos the more experienced waiting staff, and thereafter , then the staff noted design of the seating and placement of and position of table leg is intrusive to seating and makes sitting uncomfortable food was ok but not great. seating design just too close to another pair of diners lack of privacy we have been to Nobu KL and seating positions are much better designed

    Food is great quality and serving size is good - like all the other Nobu we have visited. But this restaurant needs the service staff to be better trained or more effort. 25mins to get bill - we were just ignored and even asked the chef to help get us some attention , never offered any tea or desert menu so it’s hard to order anything more and after 815pm the aircon was pumping so hard we froze. But food is top notch. Just need to get the service up to a decent level that you expect at a global and expensive restaurant.

    High expectations but left disappointed. Good: - Miso Cod - Spicy Edamame Decent: - Sushi and Sashimi - Service - Cocktails Bad: - Spicy Tuna - Decor (felt like upscale Sushi Tei) - Table was 40cm from the next - Overpriced (15%-20% more ex than it’s competitor in MBS) First impressions was also bad given the pre-seating area had a fully stocked bar to look at but no barman to serve you so couldn’t even sip on a drink while we waited.

    We booked a table for 2 months ago for our honeymoon trip to Singapore. My husband was humiliated and embarrassed after we were seated by the host asking him to put on long pants in the bathroom which he handed to him. My husband was in a shirt and chino shorts. He refused and we decided to leave. Then the manager stopped us and asked had the pre seating team member not explained they had a long pants policy, which we said no, and then he said we could stay. We said not thank you. We were greeted 4 times by staff before being seated and no one told us their dress code. Their website says smart casual. The booking did not say long pants. Old fashioned and archaic way to treat people and ruin a very special night out for us.

    Food was very very average given the price point, I can probably find the same quality of food at somewhere cheaper. Service wasn’t great either - had a reservation at 6.45pm and got seated at 7.10pm. We were immediately given the drinks menu but had to wait another 10-15 minutes just to order our drinks. Asked for still water to be served 3 times before it arrived. Lastly, our food took around 30 minutes or longer to arrive. Really really not worth the money and disappointing for Nobu…

    Nobu never disappoints and this new restaurant is gorgeous, beautiful decor, amazing food & service. We had our favourite Black Cod Miso p.m. and tried some new dishes Wagu Dumplings, simply melt in your mouth and Yellowtail Jalapeño not at all over powering the perfect blend We had deserts which we don’t normally do but the Nobu Cheese cake with Wasabi Sorbet was outstanding along with Apple Lychee Pavlova the Yuzu sorbet was a perfect mix of sweet & sour. A wash down with a spiced sake. Highly recommend.

    The food was exceptional although the service was a bit slow as the place was quite packed. We had to wait about 30 mins after asking for the check to be attended to. The food was worth the wait though. Will visit again another time for sure.

    Hype. Even the sushi was pretty underwhelming. Would love to say the ambience made up for the shortfall but unfortunately it didn't. Felt like being stuck in a glasshouse with poor acoustics and the crowd noise was just bouncing off the walls. All this whilst being frozen to death by the air conditioning at the sushi counter. It was a real pity. There is potential for it to be great and I gave it a shot despite my mates who had similar poor experiences. Turns out they were right.

    We had a very disappointing experience in comparison to other Nobu restaurants we have dined at around the world. Made a booking 2 months in advance to arrive and be shoved onto a small tiny table by the entrance door. The manager was happy to put us there until we requested a change and moved to the sushi bar. As a regular Nobu diner around the world and in particular the Melbourne restaurant, we knew what should be expected when ordering the Signature Nobu dishes. Firstly we started off with the Crispy Rice with Spicy tuna and instead of 8 pieces of Crispy rice as standard at other Nobu restaurants it was only served with 6. Secondly we wanted to try the Black Cod Miso and when it came out it was extremely underwhelming as it was not well marinated in the Miso and as we were eating it has a quite unpleasant taste and texture. With the Black Cod being charged at $68.00 it should be really perfect, not substandard. We also ordered the Nasu Miso and it had the opposite problem it was drowned in Miso. These were the only three items that we had from the Hot Kitchen and they were all poorly done. Items ordered from the sushi bar however were of a good standard in comparison to other locations around the world and were very tasty. The soft shell crab cut roll was a standout of the items that we ordered. Unfortunately, we did not have dessert as the overall experience was not really unenjoyable and we went somewhere else to improve the evening. Overall for a nearly $400 spend it should have been a much better experience than it was. The interesting thing is not one staff member asked us if the food was nice, they just cleared the plates. When we left none of the managers even asked how our experience was which was unusual compared to the other locations. We would sincerely hope that these are opening jitters and not what Singaporeans have to look forward to going forward. After all, Singapore has waited a long time to have a Nobu on its shores.

    The restaurant overall is a smaller setup with no view of the city. The space between the tables are surprisingly quiet narrow. If 2 pax come for dining, it’s highly likely to get a super small table between another 2-3 tables. All the waiters and waitresses are not local. Some are quite friendly and helpful, some are not. Food wise the taste is consistent with all other Nobu restaurants. Ingredients are fresh. Didn’t try the desserts in other Nobu before. I tried it this time and found it quite nice.

    Dessert Shave ice with Melon, there is rice cake in the dessert but very tough. And Homemade mochi it doesn't taste fresh and the skin of mochi taste like dumpling skin. Squid Pasta, we ask the waiter how its done, she said chef cut the squid and look like pasta. But when it came the Squid cut very big. We thought like pasta noodle, but the taste not good either. Other food was good, Sake was good.

    I waited with anticipation for the opening of Nobu @ The Four Seasons. While the ambience and service was great, unfortunately the food was ordinary. The California maki was bland, the fillings in the tacos didn’t stand out so it’s like eating just taco chips, the recommended yellowtail jalapeño was nondescript, the salmon new style sashimi was drowned in sauce which still needed some soy sauce + wasabi to go with it. The only dish that was yummy was the black miso cod. We finished 2 large sakes and decided not to continue. On a Friday night, another gentleman and us were the only ones at the counter, to my surprise. Pity, I have always enjoyed Nobu, in NYC, Melbourne, Vegas, Sydney. It didn’t help when the Japanese chef at the counter, apart from telling us he is from the Las Vegas outlet, didn’t do much on recommendation when we asked. Unfortunately, all the hype and glamour for the SG outlet may not bode well when the food doesn’t justify the cost and don’t deliver on taste.

    Food was excellent. Service was poor, having eaten at Nobu in Malibu, London and Dubai the service at Singapore was not to the same high standard. Music was too loud, could have been a bit quieter because as a table of three it was difficult to have a conversation clearly.

    For first timers going to the hotel, there needs to be directions or some signages leading the way. We hardly found any staff to help wit the way to the restaurant, and after reaching the 3rd level also we were wondering which way to head to the restaurant.

    Ordered the wagyu, sea urchin, cocktail on top of the recommended cold and hot dishes but I would say only the miso black cod was good (had to order white rice because it was salty). The rest of the food was meh, nothing special, not worth the $500 bill for 2 pax.

    Food is underwhelming and incredibly overpriced. Although we were still hungry, we were not motivated to sample more dishes and skipped dessert. Service lacked warmth and attention to detail. Incorrect food was delivered to our table, we waited m over 20 minutes for our sashimi and there was no service recovery. How disappointing.
