Get your nosh at Nozomi
When Nobu opened it was the talk of town, with fine dining Japanese food firmly planted in the city. Now Nozomi, at the Marsa Malaz Kempinski, has opened its doors, with a trendy atmosphere and exceptional Japanese fare, making the choice of where to eat Japanese in the city even harder. Owner Marios George has been making regular visits from England, and he believes it will be a stunning success.
