The concept is to bring a creative modern touch to the traditional Japanese dishes while keeping the authentic flavours.  Nobu’s menu includes plenty of sushi, sashimi and tempura options, hot and cold appetisers like Tuna Sashimi Salad with Matsuhisa Dressing, and Local Jidori Chicken Toban Yaki. For a refreshing dessert try Nobu’s interpretation of a classic Japanese dish – Green Tea Shaved Ice, made with organic soy milk ice, green tea syrup, red bean paste, green tea mochi and green tea tuile.
