A peek into the world’s largest Nobu
One restaurant has taken seven long years to come to fruition. But by first impressions, it’s one worth the wait. The world’s largest Nobu is now open in Doha at the Four Seasons. In fact when I last interviewed chef Nobu(yuki) Matsuhisa he claimed it would open in 2013. Better late than never.
Perched on the waterfront by the hotel’s private marina, the David Rockwell designed Nobu spans three storeys with a dining room, sushi counter, bar and outdoor terrace on the first floor; a bar-cum-lounge on the second; and a rooftop terrace. It’s so refreshing to see a new venue packed like sardines on two consecutive weekend nights with a mix of Qataris and expats. From what I can see Doha’s dining and drinking entertainment is rather limited so as soon as a new spot opens up, residents (and visitors) descend like vultures swooping on its prey. The menu is hugely similar to Dubai with Nobu’s Peruvian/ Nikkei influenced Japanese cuisine.
So voila, here’s a visual peek into dinner at Nobu Doha with photos taken on my iphone 6 plus and a little help from Instagram. Enjoy the journey :).
