Founded in 1994, by internationally renowned chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Academy Award winner Robert De Niro and producer Meir Teper, Nobu Hospitality currently operates 55 locations across the globe. A luxury lifestyle brand known for modern refinement, its restaurant is defined by chef Nobu’s signature South American spin on Japanese cuisine.

Opening in the Entertainment District, Nobu Toronto marks the company’s Canadian debut and its 56th property. The restaurant will begin welcoming guests early next month, ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival, with Nobu Hotel Toronto expected to open in spring, 2025.

Spread across 10,000 square feet, Nobu Toronto is a striking, two-level space brought to life by local interior design darlings Studio Munge. Sleek and subdued, it marries Japanese-inspired aesthetics with the finest Canadian craftsmanship. From its quietly luxurious grand bar and lounge through to its mezzanine-level layered wave ceiling, the restaurant exudes drama in every sexy curve.

Built around an artistic representation of a gingko tree, the tranquil blonde elm Japanese courtyard dining room celebrates chef Nobu’s family-style approach. 

Throughout, statement lighting, engaging art and an affinity for deluxe finishes cast every inch of the restaurant in a posh glow.

In all, Nobu Toronto can accommodate 278 diners, whether they prefer to luxuriate in Nobu’s singular dishes at the sushi counter or bar, in a private dining room, al fresco or among other well-heeled diners in the swish main room.

A brand where luxury meets finesse, Nobu promises a dazzling debut this summer.
