I think this place has the best Tempura in St. Louis. However they have changed their lunch menu and where they used to have a great tempura menu that came with soup and rice and a salad this is gone from the menu. And the cucumber salad seems to be gone from the bento box lunches. They also had a... More

We met another couple there as it was close to them instead of our usual sushi place. Service was good - check. My wife and I had the cherasi, which we normally like but it was bad. The pieces of fish were tee-tiny and the included pieces of cooked, dried-out tuna which was terrible. The biggest part of the dish... More

Nobu's is a favorite stop for anytime we are in St. Louis. The chef owner is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He had been there for 25 years and is very popular so make reservations. Although I love sitting at the sushi bar and talking with the owner.

Service was good, answered all my questions about the menu. Had suchi. Yum. Rolls were not big but tasty. I like the fact that the Japanese cooks create the Japanese food. This restaurant was advised by my friends from Japan who study here, so they said the food is like at home. I liked it too.

The food was ok, but the staff, including the owner were screaming at us when we asked where our food was. We waited a long time & wondered why we were waiting so long. We were not rude, but the owner started screaming at us. I suspect the owner has mental/anger issues. Not recommended.

First of, most of Japanese restaurants in St. Louis and Metro East area are run either by Korean (wasabi, oishi sushi, Tani) or Vietnamese (Cafe Mochi). They hire Korean and Mexican staff to perform sushi and maki "art." Thus, when I came to Nobu's, the experience was quite satisfying with the presence of a Japanese chef and Japanese servers. The...

My husband and I love sushi and have been to many places in St. Louis. What draws us back to Nobu's is the family, small business owned feel here. We always sit at the counter and watch Nobu do his magic. He usually interacts with us and we ask him questions every time we come in about different rolls, types... More
