"Ward Village is at the heart of Honolulu's transformation, and it is the perfect place for Nobu," said Chef Nobu Matsuhisa. "We look forward to bringing guests the Nobu signatures they have come to love along with some very special items that are only available at Nobu Honolulu using the best local ingredients."
The new location at Ward Village also features a stunning private Teppan Room, one of the few Nobu Teppan Rooms around the world, as well as an expanded bar and lounge offering that dazzles guests' palates with an exclusive tapas menu and island cocktails including the Market Margarita and Komomo Star.
