Disappointing if you compare it to other Nobu such as in Miami but you will definitely still eat well here

Visited Nobu as a treat whilst on honeymoon, the food was delicious and the service from Tapiwa was excellent. Tapiwa was so kind and put together a selection of dishes for us to try, we enjoyed the food immensely and had a lovely evening.

We’ve dined at a number of Nobu locations in the past throughout the U.S. That said, our recent visit to the Cape Town, South Africa Nobu was the best experience of all.

First, the current exchange rate is fantastic and makes a huge difference at a place like Nobu. That said, it was our waiter made all the difference. His name was Tapewa and he may be the best waiter ever!

Super friendly and helpful, Tapewa chatted with us prior to ordering. He was very engaging and interested in getting to know us and specifically, what type of food we enjoyed. Ultimately, he gave us three choices: Order off the menu, order Omakasa style and have the chef decide or order Tapewa Omakasa style where he chooses our selections. He highly suggested “Tapewa Omakasa” and we quickly agreed.

Well, the hits just kept coming throughout our meal including some fabulous South African wine and when finished, it was certainly one of the best and most memorable dinners ever! A great choice for dinner near the Waterfront/Marina area and make sure to ask to be seated in Tapewa’s section! I’m sure we may forget many of the fabulous dishes we were served however, it’s unlikely we’ll forget Tapewa.

We made a reservation for 9:30pm, we had to wait about 10 min for a waiter to show up. Then right after that they told us that the kitchen closes at 10:00pm and we had to rush with our orders.
So why do they accept reservations 30 minutes before the kitchen closes? Is it a fast food? They charge as a star Michellin restaurant but deploy like Mc Donald’s
