We went to Nobu during our S.Africa trip with my wife and 8 years old son. It’s located in a posh area and inner atmosphere is really impressive. Food quality is good for sushi fans and service is pretty fast even though it’s very busy on weekends. Highly recommended.

I love Japanese food and we chose Nobu to try it in Cape Town. The restaurant is nothing special. I live in São Paulo/ Brazil and in my town I go to much better restaurants. I don’t recommend. It’s expensive for what they deliver.

Without a booking I was delighted when they managed to find a corner for me despite my slightly disheveled appearance. The service was impeccable and the food amazing. I have a great seat at the sushi bar watching the chefs prepare the food. This was extremely entertaining and as a solo diner, an except way to pass the time waiting for my food.

Dined last night with my family, I was really disappointed. I have dined in alot of Nobus around the world, its hard to get disappointed at Nobu. When worst comes to worst, you can just be feeling indifferent. But yesterday’s food was just really not Nobu or anything close to Nobu’s standards. Really expensive for Cape Town, you can go anywhere else have a better food and pay half!
