Nobuo at Teeter House
The setting — a turn-of-the-century, wood-floored bungalow, awash in earth tones — emulates the relaxed intimacy of Japan’s izakaya, where friends and business associates gather to eat Japanese-style tapas, drink beer and have fun. Nobuo elevates the custom while staying true to its low brow roots, offering rustic Japanese classics with modern American inflections.
During the day, a short lunch menu is offered, as are exotic, aromatic teas, meant to be sipped and savored over quiet conversation.
In the evening, Nobuo creates"5-Star" cuisine, bringing a Western sensibility to Japanese sushi traditions while combining seasonal ingredients in exciting, inventive ways.

Loved the creative menu. Stopped for lunch and cannot wait to go back for dinner.
This is a unique and worthwhile dining experience! Although the service was a little awkward, the food was prepared with a lot of care. The ingredients were fresh and of high quality. We chose to stick to the cold side of the menu save for one dish and did not regret it at all. The table next to us went with the tasting menu and our bill was only slightly higher than it would have been if we had done the tasting but we had much more flexibility and enjoyed some dishes so much we ordered a second round!
By my books the best in Phoenix, and competitive with excellent restaurants in Japan. Might just get a star if Michelin ever does Phoenix.
It was an extra delight to treat our son to such a wonderful last night before his return to NYC. Each bite superb and visually beautiful as always. Attentive and informative service.
Outstanding dinner presented with knowledgeable and discreet service. Charming atmosphere that unique among fine dining establishments in Phoenix.
Eveything about this place is great. Small, intimate setting. Courteous and helpful staff. Delicious drinks. And the food is out of this world.
First visit for lunch. Server seemed overwhelmed and scattered though only one other table seated. All five dining thought food needed more flavor - salt. Just ok experience and not worth the money. Long ago visited for dinner. At the time, food was pricey for very small portions though delicious and unique. I am not inclined to visit again.
Wonderful experience ...staff, the food, Amazing. Only knock is it is not for the “faint of wallet”
Some of the best bites in Phoenix, with an extensive “tapas” style dining experience or guided coursing menu. Knowledgeable staff, amazing beverage list, and overall the perfect dinner.
The food preparation and presentation at this restaurant are nothing short of superb. The chef crafts traditional Japanese food into contemporary dishes that are both artistic and delicious. We have lived and dined on both the East and West coasts and have not experienced anything quite like this. In fact, we literally travel from out of state to Phoenix for the sole purpose of enjoying a meal at Nobuo at Teeter House.
One of the best meals I've had in Phoenix hands down.
Amazing as always; by far and bar none, the best and most creative food in Phoenix!
FANTASTIC FOOD, GREAT DRINKS, WILL BE BACK! Recommended to many friends
We were the first to arrive, a few minutes after 5:00 pm for a 5:45 reservation. The person who greeted us seemed a bit “frazzled”, but gave us a great table next to a window in a small room in the front of Teeter House. We were helped by a delightful woman after being seated. She helped with wine and beer selections and food story and selections, as well. We were there quite awhile...The food is delectable, but very expensive for just a bite of each item. I think four people are two, to many, for this style of dining. We ordered 10 items and 2 desserts and we were not full, at all. The bill was astronomical! But it was an “experience”...But not one that I’m in a hurry to repeat.
The food was unbelievable and the staff informative and friendly.
Sublime! Again every bite a wonder! Attentive and knowledgeable service with great wine pairings. Even got to meet toe talented and very kind chef to complete our evening.
Spectacular as always. This place is an incredible combination of authenticity, innovation, and execution. Incredible flavors at every turn, great service, and actually a very good value. I always look forward to my next experience here.
You need to be educated about what you were going to eat. This tapas style Japanese influence cuisine. tuna is very expensive , yes it’s $28 for four small spoons. For two people you will spend $175. That’s just for food. If you want to play you’re going to pay. This is the best in the Phoenix cuisine scene for this style of food. You want to complain about pricing get an a jet and go to New York. Chef Nobu
Is creating for you right there, 5 stars, Brussel sprouts amazing!
Duck Salad “Stupid Good”
Amazing, fresh, creative food. Great service and very knowledgeable servers. Great wine list too! One of our favorite restaurants in the Valley!
I really like the creative cooking of the chef. This is like Japanese tapas, with small portions that are delicately and surprisingly seasoned. Each is presented as a small work of art. Although the individual plates are somewhat on the pricey side, the high quality of the ingredients warrants the expense. For the best value you could try the tasting menu. This is truly a special occasion kind of place, and it’s close enough that you could walk to the symphony or opera. The feeling I had is that this is a chef who loves to experiment and who enjoys sharing his discoveries with his guests.
This place is really a gem. Im slightly mad at the man in the mirror for not going to the place sooner. Really. great dining experience. Food is off the charts unique and you can tell that the chefs prepare what you order in the perfect order to fully enjoy your food. The hibachi was some of the best of ever had in AZ. Really unique items that perfect for any foodie. Just a 5 star place. The server and I though didn't get along 100%. Kinda an alternative personality type. Would have some someone else serve me next time. Still left her a good tip thought
Tasting menus are amazing
A wonderful meal in a quaint, cute old house in Heritage Square. Each menu item is a beautiful picture and tastes as good as it looks. Go here quickly!
Great food! We decided to go for the tasting menu. Loved everything on the menu. Food tasted great and presentation was nice. Service was fine after the hostess seated us at a table that has not yet been cleaned off and put our menus in the water that was left behind by the previous diners. One thing to note: if anyone at the table chooses to go with the tasting menu, everyone must choose that.
Fantastic authentic chef. Great ambiance. Cool young vibe. Off the grid hidden location.
Food courses came out too quickly
Just finished one next was brought out
Less than hour to eat 4 dishes one after the other
For high priced restaurant totally inappropriate especially when enjoying a good bottle of wine
Fantastic evening! In town for work and came across this highly rated restaurant. Food was amazing. We followed our waitor Zack's recommendations, without fail. You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend Nobuo! I'll be back on my next visit to Phoenix.
Food and service were excellent. Food is creative but not over the top with too many flavors. I’m not a big Japanese fan or sushi lover but I do love gourmet dishes and Nobuo didn’t disappoint. My wife who does luv sushi LOVED IT! My one complaint, the restaurant was quite warm and I was wearing linen.
One of the best meals i have ever had and i have had some good meals. Thank you.
Lovely place with delicious and unique Japanese food.
Food and staff never disappoint. This was my 10th time at this restaurant, and the consistency of quality and innovation keeps me coming back for more. Love Nobuo.
Date night before a show; the food and service were outstanding
Nobuo at Teeter House is a wonderful dining experience with a night of perfect bites. Chris does an amazing job with recommendations, pairings and service.
Our meal was nothing short of fabulous. Our server, Zach, knows his stuff and does a great job of conveying Nobu's intent. We went for restaurant and got a tremendous variety of the most delicious food. Four different bite sized appetizers to start, including the best Brussel sprouts I've ever had. Then onto a seafood bento box with three different seafood presentations, including softshell crab, clams and an exquisite sashimi.
I added on an order of tempura squash blossoms. My dessert was a yuzu tartlette.
This restaurant is one of my favorites in Phoenix.
The bento box lunch was superb. An excellent way to sample offerings by Noburo. Will make you want to go back for lunch and dinner
The food and service from our waiter Zack was excellent. We enjoyed the Daiginjo sake too.
great waitress/server. Chef/owner came out a few times to explain food
It was amazing. The service was fast, friendly and courteous.
Just another fabulous experience with superb food and excellent service.
