“The Hanami Festival is a deeply cherished time in Japan, and we are thrilled to bring the essence of this beautiful season to our guests through our Hanami Omakase Menu. This menu is a labour of love from our talented chefs, who have meticulously curated each dish to capture the season’s spirit.

I am incredibly proud of their dedication and creativity in crafting this innovative menu. I hope that our guests will feel the same, and join us in celebrating this joyous festival with this exquisite menu,” said Chef Philip Leong, Head Chef of Nobu Kuala Lumpur.

Chef Renante Dominguez, Head Sushi Chef of Nobu Kuala Lumpur, added, “This year’s Hanami Festival marks my first celebration of this beautiful tradition with our Nobu KL guests. It is a truly special occasion, and I am thrilled to present a Sakura-inspired menu that is unlike anything I have seen before. The beauty of the cherry blossoms and the spirit of Hanami have inspired my team and I to create dishes that not only showcase the delicate flavours of spring but also push the boundaries of traditional Japanese cuisine.”

The Sawara Calamansi Ponzu dish is a delightful opening to the Hanami Omakase Menu, featuring slices of the freshest, most tender Sawara fish; it is complemented by a refreshingly tangy Calamansi Ponzu sauce and Ginger Tomato Salsa.
