World Famous Nobu Restaurant Makes a Magnificent Return to Regent Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour

As the reimagined Regent Hong Kong continues to unveil its transformed facilities and immersive experiences, it heralds the long-awaited return of worldfamous Nobu restaurant to its celebrated Dining Destination, featuring the unique Japanese cuisine of celebrity chef, restauranteur, author and one of the most recognised talents within Japanese cuisine, Nobu Matsuhisa.

Following the hotel’s major transformation, Nobu Hong Kong returns to its prime location at Regent Hong Kong with cinematic views of Victoria Harbour and the dazzling Hong Kong skyline.

At Nobu Hong Kong the focus is on inspired Japanese cuisine with Peruvian influences crafted with top-quality ingredients. In a relaxed and vibrant ambiance staged with majestic harbourviews, guests are privy to Nobu’s warm and attentive service with kokoro (‘from the heart’) and omotenashi, the Japanese spirit of hospitality.

Diners will once again be tantalised by Nobu’s signature dishes including his famous Black Cod with Miso, Yellowtail Jalapeño and Toro Tartare with Caviar along with the melt-in-your-mouth Newstyle Sashimi and Rock Shrimp Tempura with Creamy Spicy Sauce. Favourites such as Tirodito, Nobu Ceviche, and King Crab Tempura Amazu Ponzu showcase the influence and inspiration from South America, where Chef Nobu developed his signature “Nobu-style” cuisine when living in Peru. The complete collection of Nobu classics is prepared with culinary artistry using the freshest and finest ingredients, responsibly sources from local vendors. To fully savour the gamut and diversity of Nobu cuisine, the Omakase (tasting) menu is an unforgettable experience. It showcases a curated collection of Nobu classics with a range of umami flavours and tantalising textures, artfully presented on Nobu’s specially designed plateware.

Complementing the cuisine is an enticing beverage menu showcasing bespoke craft cocktails and world-class Nobu sake brewed exclusively by Hokusetsu brewery for Nobu restaurants worldwide. Hokusetsu sake pairs perfectly with Nobu’s inspired dishes. There is also an extensive wine list that includes Nobu’s own Matsuhisa Chardonnay from Sonoma County, Matsuhisa Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, and private label Nobu Champagne by Louis de Sacy, a family-owned vineyard in France’s Grand Cru region.

Michel Chertouh, Managing Director of Regent Hong Kong shares, “We are thrilled to have Nobu restaurant return to the reimagined Regent Hong Kong just in time for our Grand Opening. It is a key pillar of our Dining Destination, where immersive sensory experiences go beyond the excellence of the cuisine itself. With its global acclaim, sophistication, and innovation, Nobu is truly a destination restaurant that our guests seek out.”

Nobu Matsuhisa comments, “Nobu Hong Kong is close to my heart, as it was only my second opening in Asia. I am thrilled to reopen in such an iconic location and am looking forward to its growth.” Nobu first opened in Hong Kong at the hotel in December 2006. At that time, it was the sixth Nobu restaurant internationally and the first Nobu in Asia outside of Japan.

For the relaunch of Nobu Hong Kong, Jason Au will head the culinary operations as Executive Chef. For Jason, this is also a homecoming. The American-born chef, who was classically trained in western cuisine in the USA, found his niche in modern Japanese and Asian cuisine when he joined Nobu 57 in New York in 2007. Jason has since worked on the opening teams at Nobu restaurants in Dubai and Beijing and had two postings at Nobu InterContinental Hong Kong. He was the Japanese Chef for a luxury hotel restaurant opening in Shanghai and has headed the kitchens at several independent Hong Kong restaurants including a Japanese restaurant within a five-star hotel.
