Nobu’s innovative style of Japanese cuisine is a familiar sight among diners and chefs worldwide. The original restaurant opened in New York in 1994 and it eventually saw Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and business partners like Robert Deniro continue opening a string of outlets across 5 continents — including Kuala Lumpur in May 2015.

This Japanese-Peruvian restaurant will once again have Chef Nobu Matsuhisa in Kuala Lumpur to host an exclusive one-night-only dinner as a celebration of the launch of his first memoir.

Chef Nobu Matsuhisa with his newly launched memoir, Nobu: A Memoir

Titled, Nobu: A Memoir, the chef divulges both the story of his rise from being a dishwasher to becoming synonymous with Japanese-Peruvian cuisine and reflects on the philosophy and passion that has made him one of the world’s most respected culinary juggernauts.

Priced at RM895++ per pax, the dinner will feature a 6-course Omakase menu that is designed and curated by Chef Nobu alongside the Nobu Kuala Lumpur team. Diners will be able to meet the man himself prior to the dinner, whilst enjoying cocktails and canapes chosen by Chef Nobu.

Diners who won’t be able to join Chef Nobu on this exclusive dinner will still be able to experience ‘An Evening with Chef Nobu’ menu. The collaborative menu is specially curated by three culinary forces: Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, owner of Nobu Restaurants, Chef Philip Leong, Executive Chef of Nobu Kuala Lumpur and Chef Herve Courtot, Nobu Corporate Chef and Chef de Cuisine of Nobu Dubai.

Reservations are now open.
