Nobu and Twelve Apostles

Winter Special dinner at NOBU
good Yellowtail sashimi with a tiny sliver of Jalapeno chilli on each
 sashimi of tuna in a Ponzu dressing
 sensational fresh from the sea piece of Sake roasted Kablejou in Nobu garlic butter
prawn tempura, rock shrimp style which could be bottomless for us: light crisp batter, great prawns and two lovely dipping sauces
 lobster cerviche – served in lettuce leaves
Beef Toban Yaki –strips of a tender and flavourful steak cooked on the open grill by the chefs and served simply in its own juices and with a lovely selection of mushrooms
 Wing Rib Anti Cucho Miso - deboned rib slices in a hot and spicy sauce
 A Tuna California roll and a Yellowtail Maki appeared and they are very good, with perfect rice, all separate grains and lots of flavour

the Chocolate Bento box which contained the most sensuous hot chocolate fondants oozing liquid lava chocolate and served with a green tea ice cream
 Lynne with Gavin Ferreira

Pickled fish
The starter selection is a little predictable
a cold meat selection, salads – chicken, potato, copper penny, pasta, beetroot, caprese etc
Bouchard Finlayson Kaaimansgat Chardonnay
the Sicilian style sea bass: fresh and soft, the fillet was rolled up and served with a spicy tomato and aubergine sauce
lamb curry which had lots of sambals to accompany it
the most wonderful beef stroganoff
curry with the lentil dhal and a poppadom

Creedence looked after us very well
Jenie Oliver sang and played - well-loved standards with an original edge

Sommelier Gregory Mutambe, previously at the Vineyard.
