    relaxing and enjoyable
    This animated series was made from a novel that I quite enjoy to be relaxing and fun to read while seeing food that is made and served in this series! It's enjoyable and it would be fun to watch and enjoy if you are looking for something to relax with!

    Fun but Not Presented Well
    I really enjoy the manga and this seems like a solid beat for beat remake. But it's hard to feel like you're relaxing in an izakaya when there's text constantly crowding out the screen. Do we really need a banner at the top telling us which episode it is? How about giant bubble text at the bottom to emphasize what the characters are saying? It probably looked fine in the original Japanese airing ...

    Eisode 3-4 have improved
    The first 2 episodes had a banner and lots of speech bubble things all over the place consistently making the viewer feel kind of removed from the anime which was in my opinion really annoying. However they seem to have removed this for episode 3 and 4 which allows the viewer feel more connected to the show and doesn't distract them from the story. I am really happy with the improvement as it ...

    Restaurant to Another World + Wakakozake = This Anime
    I'm two episodes in, and so far this show feels as if it was the child of Restaurant to Another World and Wakakozake (both of which I recommend to people who enjoy this series).

    There's something about watching a show about delicious food, and watching people discover it and enjoy it that is strangely relaxing and satisfying.

    a food show that's actually informative!
    I usually never write reviews because I tend to agree with the overall ratings on here, but I was shocked to see such a low rating for this show. I wouldn't say that it's the best show ever made out there, but it certainly doesn't deserve a low rating! As someone who loves working with food as well as wants to know more about all the japanese food showcased in anime series, this is the series that ...

    There are Customers that Care About this Bar
    If there is an anime that cares about viewers, there will be viewers that care about the anime. When I started coming to Nobu, there were banners all over the place. The banners annoyed many of the other customers and were quickly taken down. Nobu reminded me about a favorite hideaway of mine called Nekoya, so at first I thought that Nobuyuki was just serving cheaply made knock-offs, but a little ...

  • Wholesome, uplifting, makes me hungry.
    Puts me in a good mood every single time. I live for shows like this.

    Also gives me a newfound appreciation for izakaya food I guess. I usually have to watch this while eating lunch/dinner so as not to make myself extra hungry.

    Wholesomeness is where the anime industry truly shines.

  • Best food Anime!!!!!
    Love the Unique concept of a short anime with either a review or how to cook a dish from the anime. This anime really entertains the foodie! The cooking sections are really easy to learn how to cook the dishes. Entertaining, Fun, and Educational about Japanese food.

  • Fun and Refreshing!!
    I love this anime because it’s so wholesome! I feel good watching it, and I can add to the list of foods I want to try! I also love the Nobu Plus segments at the end that bring it back to the real world! I would recommend this to anybody that loves Slice of Life, Cooking or Fantasy!

  • One of the better anime of this season!
    Similar style to Restaurant to Another World, this story has progression and an actual plot. The characters are lovable, except for the antagonists. Most of the antagonists just need to die, but I can guess they will not. I also hope the story progresses into the real world, the 'true' Japan.
