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.

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.
The food was amazing. I am surprised that we were able to get in at the last minute. This is the type of place that should be booked up all of the time.
We went for our anniversary and got the tasting menu! It was wonderful from start to finish- the staff was lovely and kind and welcoming and did so much to make it special, the food was obviously amazing. Creative, unexpected, and each course explained so we could fully appreciate it. The wine was excellently paired, as well. Just a really special night for us, and they made everything perfect!
New taste new expérience
Don’t miss it
The culinary offerings, especially the Tasting Menu’s, never disappoint.
Hostess doubling as a waitress knew nothing of the menu, food, or restaurant. Got the order wrong multiple times and was unapologetic.
Excellent dinner at Nobuo! Thoroughly enjoyed all menu items!
I received a tasting menu special for a Thursday in August. I took two friends that had never been and my college aged daughter. We ALL LOVED it! The portions were perfect over a couple of hours and the food exquisite! I highly recommend Nobuo at Teeter House!
Had dinner with two colleagues. Off to a bad start - chopsticks were cheap and brittle. Interior of dinning area worn. Waiter was attentive and worked with my vegetarian friend. Tapas style plates we were told. Had oysters, tuna tataki, duck salad, soft shell crab, braised pork, and foie gras. Local Sake made in Phoenix- wonderful. The evening was salvaged through the back kitchen- food is worth it.
We went for lunch. For the summer, they had a lunch Bento box with 3 of several choices to pick. Everything was delicious and now I need to go back for sushi.
Favorite in Phoenix. The food was absolutely amazing !
Great food! Soft shell crab salad was very tasty along with Tako and tomato! Definitely worth the money for dinner.
Second time here, second time great food & service
The tasting menu was fantastic from start to finish. Every item ranged from delicious to spectacular. Overall the experience was very good, with the only slight exception being a couple of the wait staff seeming to be in a bad mood.
Our waiter was so knowledgeable about all the dishes and took the time to explain the ingredients to our family. The quality and complex flavors of the food is amazing.
What a great meal. Food was dry well thought out and presented. Delicious. Service was impeccable! Going back again!
We enjoyed the tasting menu. Food was lovely, flavorful and well-presented. Service, however, was less than top be desired. Server was very perfunctory, with no personality or social skills. And unfortunately that took away from our overall experience.
We came for the Uni and Foie Grois and they were out of both. Better luck next time.
Everything was good. But the dessert did not go with the tasting menu. It was a bit too heavy in terms of taste. Something lighter and refreshing at the end might be a better choice for a dessert.
