Nobu Tokyo is the Japanese location of Nobu, a global restaurant chain presented by Chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa. Nobu’s unique Japanese-fusion cuisine has captivated the taste buds of diners around the world and here, in Toranomon, impresses the palates of Japanese gourmets.
Chef Matsuhisa trained at a sushi restaurant in Tokyo for seven years after graduating from high school. He co-owned a sushi restaurant in Peru, which he happened to visit at the age of 24. Later, he moved to Buenos Aires and then to Alaska, and opened MATSUHISA in Los Angeles in 1987. He also opened Nobu in New York in 1994, followed by London, Milan, Greece, Dallas, and The Bahamas, to list just a few. Then, he made his way back to Japan to open Nobu Tokyo in Toranomon in 2006.
Now world-renowned, Nobu’s food is chef Matsuhisa’s original fusion cuisine based on Japanese cooking infused with North and South American flavors. The restaurant’s menu also includes typical Japanese dishes, such as sashimi, sushi, and tempura. Compared to other locations, Nobu Tokyo offers a wider variety of sushi rolls; among them, the soft-shell crab roll is particularly popular. Meanwhile, stone oven dishes, such as grilled joshu pork loin and a stone oven vegetable plate, are also popular for their rich flavor and taste.
The interior features lattice walls to represent the Japan envisioned by international visitors and a high ceiling to give a sense of space and comfort. With a sushi counter where guests can watch food being prepared and a bar where a variety of drinks are served, including wine, sake, whisky, brandy, and other spirits, Nobu Tokyo is an easy-going place to relax with family, a partner, friends, or colleagues. Enjoy the food of Nobu, loved around the world, in a setting created to allow guests to feel as if they were traveling abroad.
