Say ‘omakase’ this Christmas

Looking to celebrate the Yuletide? Nobu’s got you sorted

Christmas is the word just hanging off everyone’s lips now – after all, who doesn’t enjoy a day of gift giving? But of course, festivity and good cheer are always accompanied with great food and drink – and that’s where Nobu comes in. The globally recognised Japanese restaurant chain spanning five continents is offering Malaysian patrons a special set of Christmas lunch and dinner menus, with a unique style of Japanese-Peruvian dishes crafted by Executive Chef Phillip Leong and his team.

On the eve of Christmas, as well as on the 25th itself, Nobu Kuala Lumpur has a seven-course dinner up on offer with an alluring spread of specially crafted dishes, which feature mouth-watering delicacies such as poached lobster with crispy watercress, Kobe beef with tamari pepper sauce, with the delectable finish of a Christmas Forest dessert comprising black Goma and green tea olive oil sponge, tempura Gen-Mai Cha ice cream, plus berry crumble.

Those who dine at Nobu Kuala Lumpur for dinner during Christmas will also be treated to the exclusive sight of a tuna filleting and dismantling show by sushi chef Take-san.

There is also a lunch menu offering a five-course omakase set with dishes adapted from the seven-course dinner menu. It will be available during regular lunch hours (12pm – 2pm) on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The regular omakase lunch, Matsuhisa bento and select a la carte dishes are also up for order. The high tea service along with other lunch set menus are, however, unavailable during this time.

As for seatings, Nobu Kuala Lumpur will be open for the first seating from 6pm to 8.30pm, with the second at 9pm. For enquiries and reservations, please call 03-2164 5084, or Whatsapp 019-389 5085, or book through
