Restaurant Week Autumn 2017 – Nobu One & Only Cape Town

Exploring the Cape’s best restaurants at discounted prices for 10 days straight.

We started our Restaurant Week South Africa experience with Nobu at the One&Only Cape Town


First impressions last…

This certainly describes our experience at Nobu’s One and Only on the first night of Restaurant week.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel premises to the time we entered the restaurant, we were impressed by the courteousness and efficiency of the staff.


Whilst unexpected, the welcome chant “Irasshasmase” added to its ambience. “Irasshaimase!” (いらっしゃいませ!), meaning “Welcome to the store!” or “Come on in! lead one to believe a great evening was about to begin.

Once we were seated in the restaurant, we are immediately struck by the magnificent setting. Our waiter Tapiwe or “Taps” is he is known to regulars, was not only friendly but knowledgeable of all the dishes on the Nobu Menu and his pleasant demeanor added to excitement of the evening.

The six course meal offered a variety of flavors, which was not only visually appealing but well worth the experience.

Each dish held its own appeal and presented an opportunity to experience various combinations of flavors.

Our favorite dish on the night was the Tempura Kingklip, Amazu Ponzu, and Watermelon. We were intrigued by the combination and amazed by the delicious and piquant flavors.

A pleasant evening spent in the company of good friends, enjoying good food.
