Nobu is located in the well-known Atlantis complex on Paradise Island; the menu here will be familiar to Nobu fans, as it is based on the dishes that have made chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s famous group of high-end Japanese restaurants a global name. The style is Japanese cuisine with a twist, with dishes including Nobu classics such as black cod in miso, as well as experimental creations from the wood-burning oven and hibachi grill table.
