Nobori is recently underwent a change of management. They are still evovling and transforming the menu of popular Japanese dishes with a twist. They argue that their customers the unique blend of tradition and modernity. Nobori have a wide range menu starting fromsushi and sashimi to donburi and noodles. I went in on a Saturday lunch time. The place is located on the second level and it has an a traditional Japanese decorations with a lil mix of modern vibe. It's pretty intimate with open bar and open kitchen.

We started with a range of cold appetisers; Salmon & Tuna Sashimi ($5 & $12), Unagi Sushi ($9) and Beef Tataki. Both sashimi came fresh which always important when it came to sashimi. The unagi sushi was perfectly cooked and seasoned but the beef tataki was a bit tasteless even though the egg that comes with it was phenomenaly cooked.

Chicken Karaage, Gyu tan Yakitori , Chawan Mushi with Truffle and Prawn & Vegetable Tempura ($12). Out of all the hot appetisers, the tempura shines and take over. Battered nicely, not oily, generous size and perfectly seasoned. The gyu tan was tough and a bit bland, he chicken karaage was nice but nothing out of the ordinary. I also love their smooth, fresh made chawan mushi with truffle and generous fillings.

Wagyu Loin ($45) and Grilled Lobster Tail ($58). The wagyu loin is their signature dish and it's suiting. Perfectly cooked and strongly seasoned. The lobster tail also perfectly cooked, comes in a generous size but I find the sauces is a bit too much and over shadowed the lobster. But I still enjoyed it very much.

Matcha Pannacotta is the perfect closing dish. Strong matcha flavour with perfect sweetness and smooth. In my opinion, Nobori served some pretty awesome dish such as the wagyu loin and lobster tail. They also have a take away menu, perfect for a quick lunch or long lunch to impress your client.
