Old-school sushi prepared using simpler ingredients and clean flavors. This is how Nobu chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa recently described the evolution of his fusion cuisine at his namesake Japanese restaurant Nobu. With a focus on eating healthier, Chef Nobu says “fussy, elaborate dishes are out. Simple preparations are in.”

With twenty-two Nobu restaurants, including two in Las Vegas at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Caesars Palace, Nobu is one of the hottest dining destinations in Las Vegas. Classically trained in Tokyo, world renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa has taken traditional Japanese cuisine and infused bold South American and Western flavors to create a unique culinary style.

Born in Japan, Chef Nobu cultivated his unique style of fusion artistry with influences from his travels to Peru, Argentina, Alaska and California. In 1987, he opened his first U.S. restaurant, Matsuhisa, in Beverly Hills, which quickly became a hot spot for Hollywood celebrities and one of the most popular restaurants due to a dedication to the highest quality and finest ingredients from around the world. Actor Robert De Niro took an interest and was often seen frequently at the restaurant. He invited Nobu to set up a restaurant in Tribeca, New York City and in 1994 Chef Nobu and Robert De Niro partnered in Nobu.

Designed by David Rockwell, the restaurant features a river rock wall, striking bamboo accents, sushi bar and an abundance of seating. The most popular dish is the signature black cod with sweet miso, but we’ve also included several of our favorite picks and tips for your visit to Nobu.
