Set in the exclusive One&Only Cape Town resort hotel, Nobu Cape Town is part of the internationally renowned group of restaurants by Michelin-starred chef Nobuyuki ‘Nobu’ Matsuhisa.
The cuisine is a powerhouse of tastes and flavours, combining Japanese and Peruvian influences. From anticucho skewers of salmon, to zesty ceviche, halibut jalapeño from the wood oven and moreish wagyu beef tacos, the South American infusion of flavours injects a spicy, smoky zing to dishes.
Firm favourites on the Asian side remain feather-light tempura, the freshest sushi and authentic teriyaki; while soft shell crab and lobster are refined and luxurious choices for a special occasion.
With its striking interior boasting a fanned staircase and bespoke origami-inspired lights, Nobu Cape Town is the perfect setting for a stylish gastronomic evening.
Upstairs at Nobu Lounge, signature sake cocktails are the order of the day, and it’s the ideal spot to commence an evening.
Not a gastronomic experience!
My daughters always wanted to eat at Nobu. So when we booked to stay at the One & Only, I booked at Nobu well in advance. Booking was made in May for our dinner on the 10 August. All was going well. The waitress was friendly, gave us a good description of the meals, noted our allergies. The first concern was the fact that all food was fried in the same oil as the prawns! Really dangerous if you have a shellfish allergy! Our food arrived one dish at a time, meaning not everyone got their food at the same time! Strange but it was getting late. The dishes were nothing to rave about. 3 out of the 4 at the table had finished eating and there was still no sign of the 4th person's deluxe Bento meal! The reason - our apologies but the kitchen was busy, your food is being plated now! Still a wait so we settled the bill and left feeling really disappointed with a much anticipated visit!
We were invited to celebrate combined birthday and loved the experience tremendously. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helped us with all our various food allergies! Ambience was the only disappointment. Totally overpriced, but so delicious you want to go back anyway!
One of the best Asian food restaurants anywhere! Nobu in Cpae Town never disappoints. Been here quite a few times now - on special occasions, with visitors, and just to indulge ourselves. It can feel a little stiff at first, but just take it in and you will find it quietly friendly and very welcoming. So many delicious things on the long menu - let the attentive waiter help you. The other day we had tataki tuna with ponzu dressing, lobster salad, ceviche, some new style sashimi, blackened cod and oysters with Nobu salsa. All excellent, beautifully presented - every dish is a piece of art, and in perfect portion size. Do a sake pairing with the food, a great experience. The hotel feeling just adds to the special fine dining experience.
