I have dined at Nobu London, NYC, and Las Vegas and the Houston one was a disappointment. The food lacked the Nobu flavor that I have come to love. The sources were not the same ie the rock shrimp, the waygu gyoza were incredibly greasy on the inside, the lobster lettuce wraps were full of vinegar. I had looked forward to this visit for several weeks and was very disappointed.

The meal and service was wonderful. Decor was fine nothing outstanding but that was irrelevant. Food quality and presentation is what counts. The cost was quite high but for a great experience was worth it.

The yelling in Japanese every time someone enters is gimmicky and unnecessary given how excellent their food and service are. It makes it too noisy at times. The manager was amazing. He offered us a tide pen to use after a spill. They all were incredibly accommodating. Even with the, hate to say it, outdated/cheesy yelling, I am eager to return.

The location of this Nobu is awful for local Houstonians. It at the mall and so you get mostly mall patrons. The service was sub par and annoying. Every time they brought a dish to the table they felt need to make recommendations on how to eat as if we didn’t know what we were doing. Compared to several other Nobus I’ve been to this is well below standard. The food was not too exciting either. Many options in Houston to choose before Nobu.

We book our reservation almost 2 weeks in advanced. Upon arriving we were directed to a small table for 2 however I had to sit to side of the table to allow room for a larger table next to us.

Food came out in a strange order having our sea bass before our sushi rolls.

I have never eaten a full Seabass with only chips stick but that was all that was provided to us.

When sushi arrived I had asked our waitress (when I was able to see her) for some soy as we did have the soy bowls. Never did get that.

Overall food was great but was not blown away. For the price I was expecting much more and thought we would get that from a Nabu restaurant.

Overpriced food, great ambience and service, some of the dishes were great ( Kobe beef, donut dessert ), while others were average ( Dover sole, cooked salmon ).

It’s ok, but not worth the money. We did it once, but probably won’t return.

One of the most incredible meals I've ever had in Houston. My wife and I are huge fans of Uchi but this took things to a new level. We sat at the sushi bar and the service was superb throughout the night. Loved the drinks and getting to talk to the sushi chefs as they made our meal.

Can't wait to go back and experience it again. Thanks Nobu!

Would never recommend Nobu to a friend. There are at least two better sushi restaurants in the area, both at considerable savings. Food is ordinary, service excellent, price ridiculous for the mediocrity of the product. I would urge someone to skip this restaurant; don't even waste your time, certainly not your money.

Went to nobu for our vday dinner, john was our server and he explain in detail the menu and was very attentive the whole night. The restaurant is very organized even with their quick payout as the waiters carry their own check out machine to have a better table turnover which is very tacky in my opinion. Overall without the excellent service, the food tasted a little rushed as my wife even found multiple fish bones in her miso cod which made her entree very unappetizing. There is room for improvement if they want to mimic the excellence of the other nobus

As much I enjoyed Nobu Matsuhisa's restaurant in Lima, it has been many years since eating at Nobu. The food is very good, and perhaps we ordered too many citrus based dishes, but food seemed underwhelming.

The decor was pretty uninspiring.

What I like least of all is settlinng the bill at my table, while the waiter and all the guests watch, conversation interrupted.
