Nobu Restaurant Manila: Birthday Dinner at Nobu's Floating Cabanas (City of Dreams Parañaque Metro Manila)

Parañaque, Metro Manila, Philippines

The family has been eyeing on dining at Nobu Restaurant Manila's Floating Cabanas for some time now. 

Because of the pricey consumable of 10,000 php, we had to save it for a special occassion. 

Nobu Bar
Quite noticeable that more diners prefer the floating cabanas too. 

Nobu Restaurant Indoor
So it requires advance reservation and almost always fully booked on weekends. 

Nobu Couch
Though the indoor ambiance is pretty good too, it's not as unique as the floating cabanas.


Assorted Platter
Nobu Pacific Rim Platter
Nobu Pacific Rim Platter (2,880 php)

The service was a bit slow.  The first to arrive after a long wait is the Nobu Pacific Rim Platter.  The quality of the seafood is good but the slice and sushi rice falls short considering the high price point.

Salmon Avocado Maki
Salmon Avocado Cut Roll (490 php)

We had the same disappointment with the Salmon Avocado Cut Roll too.  Just look at the form...

Nobu Dishes Hot
Rock Shrimp Tempura with Butter Ponzu
♥ Rock Shrimp Tempura with Butter Ponzu (1,200 php)

The Rock Shrimp Tempura with Butter Ponzu is a popular choice among Nobu diners as we've seen from other reviews.  We have to agree!  This is pretty good. 

Australian Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin Tobanyaki
♥ Australian Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin Tobanyaki (2,800 php)

Another good option that's filling for beef lovers is the Australian Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin Tobanyaki.

Mixed Seafood Tobanyaki
Mixed Seafood Tobanyaki (1,720 php)

If you prefer seafood then its Mixed Seafood Tobanyaki for you.

Nobu Yakimono 
free range chicken
Free Range Chicken with Antichucho Sauce (1,080 php)

The Free Range Chicken with Antichucho Sauce is quite dry.  Better skip this.

US Prime Tenderloin
US Prime Tenderloin with Wasabi Pepper Sauce (2,800 php)

The US Prime Tenderloin with Wasabi Pepper Sauce is also just passable.

Complimentary Birthday Cake
Complimentary Birthday Cake

Though the service was terrible that even a glass of water took so long with many follow-ups, we were glad that they gave  Complimentary Birthday Cake.

Nobu Restaurant

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict

We've definitely tried better hotel dishes elsewhere.  The dishes were really expensive that our total bill including drinks was almost double the minimum consumable amount.  The service was also the worst we've experienced from any hotel restaurant.  Yet, for such stunning one-of-a-kind Nobu Restaurant Manila Floating Cabana experience, we'd happily dine there again.
