THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Nobu Japanese Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Nobu---no relation to Nobu Matsuhisa and his restaurant empire---is a small, comfortable Japanese spot that defies its strip mall location by serving a large variety of authentic dishes such as yakitori, sunomo, sukiyaki and shabu-shabu. Sushi and sashimi are the main draw---but don’t underestimate such dishes as monkfish pâté and steamed dumplings. We like to end a light meal here with the mango mochi ice cream.
