Highly expensive food compared to the portions served which were very small! Food quality was average. Overall experience was disappointing! We went later on to have a second dinner as we were not satisfied at all! Although the place was not very busy, we had to waive our hands and wait to be served as the waiters were not paying that much attention.

Overall an outstanding experience from start to finish. The amount of sushi presented was a little over-facing, however everything else was suitably proportioned. As I said though, and absolutely fabulous experience and we will definitely be returning in the near future. Thank you to all of your team, especially our excellent waiter, who should be commended for his care and attention .

Very normal, vibe was okay. I thought I’m going to have a one of kind experience. It was just like any other fine dining restaurant but over priced

I was there for my wedding anniversary, enveloped thought I have selected anniversary when I booked. Staff had no plan to provide anything until I had to tell them and paid for a pice of cake.

I was very excited to visit this restaurant but it really was nothing special if I say it was a mediocre experience then it might even be too much. The waiter was ok nothing special he was just there. The food was ok. For starters we ordered ceviche that never came and a beef carpaccio which again was just weird with no taste. Mains I had salmon and asparagus honestly bland and nothing memorable and my friend who’s a big guy had the smallest piece of steak cut into slices. There were different weights but we didn’t really understand it, I would have expected the waiter would have said you should maybe go for something bigger but no. We ordered a risotto rice there was plenty of it but it was meh 😑. We didn’t even bother with the dessert and I had a number of cocktails which again looked the part but I could not identify the alcohol. I don’t like to leave negative reviews but this was terrible really a big let down. The only good thing was the view and the restaurant is beautiful but we sat outside and it was freezing because of the wind definitely needed a few more heaters. I always take pictures of my food but I didn’t even get a picture how bad is that 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

So, after hearing a lot about Nobu... I was so dissapointed when I went there.
Sercive: Seating was the worst, even though better seats were available.
I ordered food, that didn't come, but I was charged for. The whole idea of serving concurrently was not followed. My wife and I didn not eat together.
Prices: Cost is so much higher than typical for Qatar... and not justified by better service, taste or economical value.
I will tell anyone who hears me to avoid this place like the plague.
I;m sure this review will not be shared, rather hidden.

The food was overrated especially the sushi, it was overpriced for the food amount thats considered as the chef’s complimentary dish in other restaurants, the drinks was okay and way better than the food that I can consider as tester in the other 5 stars Restaurants

Overall it was ok. While the ambiance is really nice, it’s not the level of Nobu food or service I’m used to experiencing in Las Vegas or Miami. If you want nice, higher end Japanese food in Doha, Morimoto is better.

Food presentation was good but the food was not at all good. specially main course grill chicken and shrimps with mushroom was too bad in taste. chicken completely frozen and taste less. starter was good and dessert was very good. I dont think I can recommend to my colleagues and friends to visit the place.

It was difficult to make reservations by directly calling Nobu. I tried all the numbers I found on their website & insta page… but got no answer.
Thankfully I came across a link which directed my to OpenTable & was surprised how easily (in a couple of mins only) I had reserved a table with a special birthday request & got an email of confirmation as well. 👍🏼

The venue is outstanding, probably one of the most remarkable restaurant places in Doha. But the quality doesn’t match this ambiance. The food was certainly not bad, but when you aim high, the food and drinks quality is below expectation. The same for the service: the staff is very well trained, follow the right steps for a great customer journey, but they lack the finishing touch to understand what is really necessary to deliver an outstanding experience. When you compair with for example Hakkasan, Nobu Doha loses the battle on service, food quality, drink quality and even pricing. Advise: lower the expectations and pricing, than Nobu will be the best mainstream restaurant in town, or, get your quality up on all levels, step up your game and do better.

The things that keep me from giving this all five stars is that the music was SO loud. Even sitting outdoors, with three others at my table we couldn’t hear what the other was saying. And even though the music wasn’t my preferred type (was very “dance clubby”), that would be tolerable and even enjoyable if it wasn’t blasting. Also, the food and the service were excellent! I gave a middle rating for value, as the prices were high.

Devastated (in the best way possible) that the food at Brunch was so plentiful (and utterly delicious) that we couldn’t finish our main or manage dessert!! Incredible cocktails - deceptively strong!! Nobu is our favourite restaurant by far.
