WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Japanese -

Lus­cious views of the city, posh in­te­ri­ors and haute Ja­panese cui­sine meet and greet din­ers of Nobu, mak­ing it one of the most sought-af­ter fine din­ing restau­rants in town.

First timers would do well with Nobu’s sig­na­ture omakase course, star­ring the chef’s per­sonal se­lec­tion of dishes. A starter of toro tar­tar gets the ap­petite going, while the fol­low up of tuna sashimi salad further whets it with its gen­er­ous serv­ings of per­fectly seared tuna.

The black cod with miso is de­li­ciously umami with its lovely thick miso coat­ing an almost too ten­derly cooked cod. Bal­ance the miso’s sweet­ness to your lik­ing with the side of yuzu sauce and young gin­ger. The An­gus beef, while cooked per­fectly, is a cut that is leaner than we would have liked, though the ac­com­pa­ny­ing sauces are in­ter­est­ing, par­tic­u­larly the truf­fle miso sauce.

On top of the omakase, do try the amaz­ing crispy rice skew­ers with spicy tuna that taste like an Asian ver­sion of hash browns, sport­ing equal amounts of chew and crisp. Also, the yel­low­tail sashimi jalapeno is a sig­na­ture dish across the Nobu fran­chise for a rea­son – the ten­der, fresh morsels are sim­ply divine.
