Nobu - Malibu, CA

Last weekend, my boyfriend surprised us with a lunch date at Nobu in Malibu!

This was our first time at this location. Upon walking inside the restaurant, I immediately loved the ambiance of the room, filled with wood and huge windows. I thrive in the sunlight and any bright natural lighting! We ordered the acai punch, edamame, crispy rice soup, seafood ceviche, toro cut roll, and spicy tuna hand roll.

  • Acai Punch- We love anything acai, so this drink definitely stood out to us. A little tangy at first, but when the ice starts to melt, it’s perfect.

  • Crispy Rice Soup- Ian said this tasted like “miso soup times 10". A unique menu item that I have never seen before!

  • Seafood Ceviche- Surprisingly rich in flavor! It was not the typical ceviche I’m used to having as it was topped with tuna, yellowtail, and even octopus.

  • Spicy Tuna Hand Roll- AMAZING. I would come back and order three of these. Seaweed was crisp the way I like it, and the blend of everything together tasted absolutely delicious.

  • Toro Cut Roll- Ian says this was very good! Very fresh and fatty, and melted in his mouth- as all toro should.

Overall, the experience was wonderful. The ambiance of the room and the flavorful food make me eager to come back!
