Amazing meal -- what a special treat! The octopus tiradito was amazing (though a tiny bit too much hot sauce for me) as was the black cod den miso, and the yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno. Vegetable tempura and sushi rolls were very good but nothing spectacular. Only thing that was a bit disappointing was the chocolate tart. Should have had more sashimi!

Ate here two nights in a row...it was that good. On the first night, Linda, was our server. She did a great job taking care of us and her friendly disposition was a definite plus. I have been to Nobu's all over the world and this, as usual, was a great experience. The yellowtail melted in your mouth, the tuna tacos were amazing, and, as always, the miso cod was absolute perfection. The second night, the service wasn't anything special, but the food was still good. The design of this restaurant was stunning and elegant. If I'm back in Cape Town, I will be going back to Nobu.

We were excited to see a Nobu in cape town as we had frequented others. Disappointed to find its "franchised". While the menu contained some typical dishes it was not the same. Food was adequate but service lacking. Waitstaff not fully familiar with the menu. But food was good and reasonably priced versus other nobus. All in all a good restaurant but not up to Nobu standards

Warm welcome : while the waiter is taking you to your table, the whole staff says welcome in Japanese. When you sit, the waiter and the sommelier come and introduce themselves...
The sommelier gives good information and helps you to choose the best wine
The waiter, Sylvain, was just great, very nice, talked a lot with him, not invasive.
Food was great, sushis and sashimis were very good, and the meat was perfectly cooked.
Had an amazing time

It wasn't the best but also not the worst. This was recommended to me as the best in cape town. It is very pricey and I have had better in cape town. Not running back
