Nobu at One&Only Cape Town: Superb Japanese-Peruvian Cuisine

One And Only Nobu

Nobu’s iconic spicy-garlic lobster is the star of June’s special menu.

When it comes to Japanese-Peruvian cuisine, Nobu has been setting the bar for decades. Combining the precision and elegance of Japanese culinary tradition with the profusion of ingredients and flavours of Peru, masterchef Nobu Matsuhisa has made it his own, with over 30 high-profile restaurants across the globe.

At One&Only Cape Town, the sleek and sophisticated double-volume space looking out over waterside and Table Mountain views creates a setting of understated luxury. A sweeping staircase leads down to the main dining room, where chefs work skilfully at the open sushi bar.

June special pairing

One And Only Lobster

A much-loved hit on menus worldwide, the master’s iconic “spicy garlic” sauce is used in a selection of seafood dishes to ramp up their flavour and texture to deliciously decadent heights. For the June special, the bold Lobster Spicy Garlic is paired with a specially crafted Cape Fusion brandy cocktail.
Cost R495
Valid 1 – 30 June 2024

Omakase or à la carte

Nobu Cape Town Sashimi

To avoid menu overwhelm, the simplest strategy is to go for the omakase set multi-course menu, where the dedicated chefs create a series of clean, impeccably plated dishes, taking the Nobu offering to new levels of creativity, and maintaining Nobu’s exacting standards. (Vegan and vegetarian options are available, too.)

Or explore the à la carte menu, which includes wood-oven-roasted dishes, tempura, kushiyaki skewers and more. Our favourites include the spicy edamame, tuna sashimi tacos, yakimono beef tenderloin, teriyaki yellowtail jalapeño and a dry-miso whitefish dish.
