Tips from the Net @ PABU

Pabu had really great food, a pretty solid cocktail and wine list, and good ambience. It's expensive, so know what you're getting into, and the menu is limited (tightly edited, perhaps). I appreciate a few good choices more than many mediocre ones, so this place worked for me. GooglePlace - December 2017

Amazing cocktails. Great food. Was a little show though. GooglePlace - December 2017

Good food here, the sushi was great. Nice sake recommendation. Large restaurant with a lot of accommodation for seating (a lot of other sushi restaurants around the area are small and you need reservations well I'm advance - this place makes for a good place to drop in if you haven't planned for sushi).

I wouldn't go here again. Food is good, but of the mix we ordered of starters, sushi, and grilled items (some recommended by our waiter), there is little that was remarkable. The prices are also quite high for the quality; I am very happy to spend a lot of money on great food, but this wasn't that, sadly. Service and ambiance were above average, but not enough to make a difference in my rating. GooglePlace - November 2017

Great sushi. Excellent waitress. Both make a memorable evening. They even set a table for us outside at our request. Thank you! GooglePlace - October 2017
