Time Out Says
Famous for its black cod, this is one menu item not to be missed. Nobu can be credited for the surge in popularity of the dish, after Hollywood star Robert De Niro tried it, loved it and told the world about it. And you’ll agree with De Niro. The buttery, flaky fish is a pure joy to eat. It’s rich, decadent and every bit as good as the hype.
The jalapeño yellowtail is also another stunner. The citrusy, delicate fish is tangy and light, and the chilli gives a warming kick. All the sushi is worthy of a try and for mains the grilled lobster is meaty and perfectly charred. Shrimp fan? Order up the prawn tempura, which are huge, juicy and not at all greasy – some of the best we’ve tried.
Dishes are also really healthy, as Nobu uses minimal sugar in his cooking, preferring to use the Chinese monk fruit – a zero calorie natural sweetener, so there’s no excuse not try them.
Nobu may be on the expensive end of the scale, but its popular for a reason and you shouldn’t miss it.
The bottom line
World-class Japanese dishes that are a must-try.
