Omakase experience at Nobu | Melbourne

Omakase (Japanese: お任せ Hepburn: o-makase) is a Japanese phrase that means “I’ll leave it up to you” (from Japanese “to entrust” (任せる makaseru)).

Leaving it up to the chef to come up with things for us to eat is normally not what we do. We like to know that what we put in our mouths is going to be our choices so we won’t have anyone else to blame if we don’t like what we are served.

We were looking for food options for lunch and we were told to go there for a superb meal. Superb wasn’t it. It was perfect!
