Nobu Bar and Grill SHOULD CLOSE DOWN!

OMG! this place should close down! it took us 2 months to get a reservation since they overbooked in a coupon site where i got my vouchers to this restaurant as well. I went to this Nobu bar and grill hungry thinking it was an eat all you can resto but my family and i went out even hungrier! one of my brothers didnt even touch the food!

they open at 12 nn which is already past lunch time and yet their buffet table was empty. it was already 1pm and when i asked when they will refill the food, they simply answered, "we will refill the food, niluluto lng po" it was already 2pm and yet they only served rice and steamed siomai that was full of extenders and fats. all other foods were dirty and inedible.

When we entered, the place was hot, the aircon was broken, there were a lot of flies on the food. The food werent fresh, the seafoods were frozen and even stale. also the tofu. all they had were vegetables. there were no bars nor grills nor food! most trays were empty!

I kept askign for a refund since there was nothing to eat anyway but the waiters and waitresses couldnt do anything and the Korean owners were denying everything.

a carinderia serves better food than this!

the waiters situated our table in the middle where it is very tight and inconvinient and we couldnt even pass to get some food. i even had to walk on chairs just to get our. when we requested to be transfered to 2 smaller tables. they kept on saying that the other tables were reserved but until we left no other new customers went in.

The place was dirty and the food was horrible. it is the worst place to eat. we couldnt eat the food at all as they are way too dirty. One of our guests even had diarhea! The rattan chairs even had bed bugs that bit my legs. i have never regretted eating in a certain restaurant until we ate here.

This place should close down! if you purchased any groupon or voucher, consider giving it to other people or else you'll just waste your time and money and gas.

Even a 0 rating for every criteria is too much for this horrible, nasty, place. i could even call it a restaurant.

Me & my friend went to this restaurant to have a food tasting for our upcoming reunion on Nov. 2011.

We are satisfied for the taste of all foods served on the buffet table. Me & my friend enjoyed the grilling & making our own hotpot. I hope that our batchmates will also appreciate all the food serve in this restaurant. The waiters are all attentive in all we needs. :)

extremely bad experience

nakoww bakit naman me ganitong restaurant... buffet daw.. tatlo, tatlo pang international cuisines ang sinasabi e subukan nyo kumain dun... merong tokwa, kalabasa, green leafy veggies lang halos ang nasa buffet table... ay meron palang mga ready dishes na mukhang luma, lasang luma at walang kakwenta kwenta... kala nyo exaggeration to, try nyo din tapos balik kayo dito post kayo ng review... iisa lang nagpost ng medyo positive review dito, malamang yung me ari pa yun... sana naman ... they give us value for money... crappy food na ewan kahit isang dish.. take note kahit isa lang ha wala akong marekomendang ok naman... kulang pa yung zero para sa rating na ibibigay ko... tsk, tsk, tsk... we do not need crappy restaurants gid.

WORST dining experience

WORST RESTAURANT I'VE EVER BEEN TO!!! YOU OBVIOUSLY CHANGED YOUR MENU, PROBABLY BECAUSE YOU MADE DEALS WITH ENSOGO ET AL, AND THE RESULT WAS A DISASTER... YOU SOLD VOUCHERS THROUGH THOSE SITES FOR HALF THE PRICE OF YOUR USUAL LUNCH BUFFET RATE, BUT THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD YOU SERVE WAS COMPROMISED IN A HUGE WAY!!! I WAS EXPECTING THAT YOU WILL OFFER ITEMS TO BE GRILLED, AS YOUR NAME SUGGESTS, APART FROM THE VERY BLAND "SHABU-SHABU" (OR SO YOU CALL IT, BECAUSE IT SURELY DOESN'T COMPARE, NOT AT LEAST A BIT, TO THE MANY SHABU-SHABU RESTOS I'VE BEEN TO...) BUT THERE WAS NOT A SINGLE ITEM FOR GRILLING...

YOU REGARD YOUR BUSINESS AS A RESTAURANT SERVING KOREAN, JAPANESE AND CHINESE FOOD, BUT HOW COME THERE WAS VERY LITTLE SELECTION? (AND I DON'T EXAGGERATE WHEN I SAY VERY LITTLE... I'M SURE MANY CUSTOMERS CAN ATTEST TO THAT..) NOT A SINGLE JAPANESE FOOD (NO MAKI OR SUSHI OF ANY KIND) THERE WAS CHAP-CHAE AND KOREAN BEEF (SO I GUESS THAT WILL MAKE FOR THE KOREAN FOOD CATEGORY), THERE WAS ALSO SIOMAI (AND THAT'S IT FOR THE CHINESE FOOD CATEGORY, LOLS...)

WE'D RATHER PAY FOR OUR DRINKS, INSTEAD OF ENDURING THAT FREE WATER-TASTING ICED TEA THAT YOU CALL, SO WE ORDERED PINEAPPLE JUICE... BUT AGAIN, TO OUR GREAT DISMAY, INSTEAD OF SERVING US PINEAPPLE JUICE IN CAN, YOU OPTED FOR A BADLY MIXED POWDER JUICE DRINK... AND THE WAITRESS HANDED ME THE STRAW IN HER BARE HANDS... (EVEN THE SERVICE CREW FROM JOLLIBEE WOULD HAND YOU A STRAW WITH A NAPKIN, HOW HARD IS IT TO DO THE SAME???)

SO TO SUMMARIZE THIS REVIEW....

FOOD WAS BAD..
SERVICE WAS BAD...
DEFINITELY NOT COMING BACK!!!

unbiased review

i also have the same disappointing experience with this restaurant. Even if your paying 175, i think Nobu grill should prove its worth so customers will patronize them, much more 349 for buffet lunch. Their service is so poor that attendants keep on shouting at each other when they ask for something, considering customers were in front of them.
And if there is a cockroach in that restaurant based on past reviews (and I believe them), i will never ever go back again. What for? their food is bad, service is poor and their place is dirty. Even for 50pesos value meal it's not worth.

50% beeconomic deal at nobu

3

I've got a 50% off voucher at beeconomics last July,8,2011 and i called up nobu for reservation on july 23 2011. so i went there at nobu to use my voucher there was so many customers waiting out side to dine the waiters were nice and smiling all the time and the place was quite hot because i was seated outside, there was BIG electric fan(really huge) but it was still HOT.

AND here comes the food the food has no presentation but they were good. the siomai was great plus the maki, kani sushi was awesome for the price of 175!!!!!!! when the food was refilled there was a group taking all of the food NOTHING was left for me and my people.they were no manner at all. FOR me the food didn't look like carinderia as what it was posted. they didn't know other groups were complaining about them.

Cmon for the price of 175 you people expect too much. i guess it deserves the price of 175 either 349. period. DONE!

unhygienic NOBU

I’ve got NOBU lunch buffet vouchers from a group buying site at 50% off and made a reservation for 12 persons. When we arrived there, they did not accommodate us inside and we were told to seat outside. I wasn’t expecting that so we requested if we can just seat inside because it’s really hot outside, no fan and we have 2 babies with us. Also, there is still a vacant table & seats for 12 inside. So we’re hoping that they might be considerate seeing the two babies already sweating. But the waitress told us “BAKA PO NAUNA MAGPA-RESERVE ANG NAKA-SULAT NA NAME SA TABLE KAYA PO DITO SILA SA LOOB”. I asked her kung kelan nagpa-reserve yon kc ako I’ve made my reservation almost 2 weeks ahead but she said she don’t know. We insisted since we came there first and we also paid for that reservation. But we were told “REGULAR CUSTOMER PO KASI ANG NAKA-RESERVE DITO AT NDE PO TALAGA PWEDE KASI YON ANG SABI NG CAPTAIN”. I don’t know who the captain she’s referring to, but probably it’s the manager or owner of the restaurant. Whoever that captain is, he/she didn’t even bother to accommodate their customer properly and in a nice way. May discrimination ba because we’re not regular customers though we also paid for that buffet lunch?

So, we have no choice but to seat outside. The table was so messy, the plates and other utensils looks dirty. We started to get food from their buffet with few selections. The food was cold and parang left overs lang yung iba, we have to order drinks because the free tea they served looks and tasted like water with coloring lang. Then, we started cooking (shabu shabu) only to find out that there was a MEDIUM SIZE COCKROACH ON THE TOFU!! As in,YUUUUUCCCKKKHHHHHYYY talaga!!! We took pictures of it as proof!!! We don’t know where the cockroach came from, if it’s from the pot but it really sticks on the tofu. So it means, NOT ONLY PLACE WAS DIRTY BUT ALSO THE FOOD!!!

We requested the waitress to replace the pot and throw the food we were cooking. She didn’t even bother and just said “AH MAY IPIS PO BA?” and took the pot away without even asking for an apology. My goodness, parang normal lang sa kanila na may lumulutang or nakadikit na ipis sa food at mga gamit nila!!! The captain or manager didn’t even bother to see us to explain and say sorry…. so unprofessional.

So para nde na humaba ang complaints, we just finished our food. Though nde na kami masyado kumuha ng food thinking that all the food they served was not clean. I asked for my bill (for drinks that we ordered) and noticed that the vacant table inside with reservation for their “regular customer” was still vacant. So, they did not accommodate us inside for that reason only to find out na wala namang umupo sa vacant seats na yon!!! That’s a big shit!!!
We also noticed that the waitresses keep on taking pictures of our group. What for? Are they gonna banned us because they know we will posts our comments re their UNHYGIENIC carinderia??

Well no need for that pictures ladies, because WE WILL NOT DEFINITELY COME BACK AND DINE IN AT YOUR YUCKHY CARINDERIA AGAIN!! WE WILL NOT RECOMMEND IT EITHER!! THE WORST BUFFET CARINDERIA WE HAVE TRIED!!

To the management and owner of NOBU, ayusin nyo ang service nyo. Make sure your place and food are clean. Our experience with your carinderia was really disgusting! You’re not even that professional to accommodate customers. If you can’t do that, much better if you just close it!!! MAGSARA NA LANG KAYO!!!

sossy eatery

it was our friend's birthday treat and she got a voucher from a group buying at 50%. she reserve a seat inside the resto but when we arrived there, we wasnt accomodated inside and told us that a regular customer have made a reservation in a vacant table inside. we have no choice but to seat outside even after complaining alot. the place is so messy, it took a while before they refill the buffet table and the place is so hot. they have a free iced tea that look like something you dont want to drink... most of all and the most yucky of all is when we found out that there is a cockroach from the pot that we are cooking. we dont know where the cockroach came from. the service is so poor, they dont even apologize and seems like it is normal to have a cockroach in there... dining here is like eating in a "sosyal na karinderya". 345 eat all you can is not worth even the 50% is not worth for this resto... never ever to come back here again even 90% off pa...

awful and untrue reviews

We got the so called 50% off deal after seeing the reviews posted here just to discover that the two reviews were grossly exaggerated and inaccurate. We went there before the starting time and what was presented looked like leftovers cause all ready dishes were cold, nothing was made to keep food warm at all. They are reluctant to replenish empty trays and you just have to call their attention and wait. Also, the 50% off is not true cause for the regular price, you get shabu shabu, grill and drinks, but for the deal, no grill, no drinks, and I notice they have an upstairs area where different food was served. I asked if we can get food upstairs and was told we cannot, and they said food was the same in both areas, but obviously not. Food was always sent upstairs but downstairs the trays were most of the time empty. We saw they served kimchi upstairs and asked if we can have some, it took us asking several times and maybe an hour before they served us a very small amount in a tiny plate.
The quality of food was just like eating something done by your maid at home, period.
Place - it is dirty, I really wonder if those two previous writers know what is meant by ambiance. It is at best an indoor carinteria and cleaning is done very superficial. Not to mention hygiene, the plates are not even clean and I have difficulty look for a cleaner looking plate and end up using a tissue to wipe every plate I need to use.
The only good thing I can say for this restaurant is the staffs are friendly and all smiles all the time.
This is indeed the worst buffet restaurant I have ever tried.

349pesos buffet at blue wave

4

It has good ambiance and waiters has very pleasant service. Plus the food are similar to yakimix and tong yang because you can grill like yakimix and you cook shabu-shabu like tong yang, but the price is suitable for any occasions. But it seems no sweet dessert like ice cream halo-halo and etc maybe because the price is low. But still our friends enjoyed
