Nobu KL sets up the right atmosphere for a memorable date night.

Tatler Says

Nobu has since come down closer to earth, moving from KLCC Tower to Four Seasons Place earlier this year. What it lacks in a killer view this time, it more than makes up with a cosy setting, an attentive but unobtrusive staff, and a menu full of interesting choices, so much so that it was difficult making our final selections. When in doubt, there’s always the excellent omakase menu, which was what I went for. Highlighting premium seasonal ingredients, the sushi selections were fresh with the Tuna Belly with Sweet Pickle being particularly memorable. The chicken, however, was a tad dry, but it helped that there was a trio of sweet, savoury and spicy condiments as accompaniments. (Full disclosure: There wasn’t supposed to be chicken on the omakase menu but I had made the switch because I don’t take beef.) My dining companion ordered ala carte and she gave her Mushroom Tosazu Truffle Tacos and the lobster on a bed of vegetables the thumbs up. We really enjoyed the fine dining setting, which sets up the right atmosphere for a memorable date night.


An avid reader of cookbooks, Head Sushi Chef Masami Ouchi is also quite the globetrotter, having demonstrated his culinary prowess at Nobu pop-up events in South Africa, Monaco, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and more.


When making dinner reservation, request for a table by the window. The view of the KLCC park is wonderful at night with its fountain light show.
