Nozu, a parody of Nobu, is a sushi restaurant featured in Season 3 and 4 of Victorious. Its first appearance is in the episode André's Horrible Girl. After the Chinese restaurant Wok Star, was burned down by a mysterious fire (it is implied Mrs. Lee committed arson/insurance fraud), Mrs. Lee used the insurance money for Wok Star to create the Japanese restaurant, Nozu. It is similar to the real life Nobu, but Nozu also has karaoke. It has appeared in Tori and Jade's Playdate, where Tori and Jade had a “date” in order to test their friendship and acting skills. Nozu was also mentioned in Tori Gets Stuck when Tori asked Cat, Robbie, and André if they wanted to get sushi (this could mean that Nozu was built before its appearance), and in Driving Tori Crazy when Beck is talking to Tori. This restaurant is run by Mrs. Lee. Also, in How Trina Got In, Robbie treats Tori to a lunch at Nozu, but Robbie and Tori forgot their money at school, resulting in Mrs. Lee making them work by chopping 17 pounds of raw squid. Nozu also was shown in The Blonde Squad when Tori, Cat and Jade have dinner there and Cat meets Evan Smith. Nozu made its last appearance in The Hambone King, when Mrs. Lee offered Robbie a free tempura ice cream dessert in honor of his hambone video. Later, Robbie battles the other "Hambone King" and loses, but is coached by Tori, who eventually beats the "Hambone King".
