I have been going occasionally to Nobu restaurants for the past 10 years, after first amazing experience at Nobu park lane. Last year I visited twice Nobu in Milan, and this year when visiting London Nobu was of course first choice for our family. I have to say I like the for me new location, it is lively with lots of natural light. The food and the service is excellent as always, our 2 waitress were just amazing, discreet and wonderful (2 blond guys, one is Croatian as we are). We shall certaily be back.

First time here and had a great time - food was pricey but the experience was was worth it. The waiter was really kind and genuinely helpful and gave some great recommendations. The seating areas are too close to the table next to you along the side of the restaurant for my liking - for the money spent I like more intimacy - thankfully when I requested a table by the window they kindly obliged. They also kindly provided a happy birthday desert for my wife which was a nice touch, thank you Nobu. We will be back again!

We'd not been to Nobu for a long time so felt that another visit was long overdue. We were really excited about sampling the black cod and we were no disappointed - it was superb. Service very attentive but not intruding. It was strange that there were few diners on the night we were there.

I came here on the 9th for my 18th birthday with my boyfriend, the night was incredible and i’m so happy we chose nobu. However, some of the customers were very loud and it was clear many people were getting annoyed. Food was beautiful however expensive, but we ordered too much as it was actually very filling. For two people it could easily be under £120 for a very filling and 5 star quality meal, which really isn’t bad. I’ve already booked again for the 20th!! It really is a very different experience to other restaurants.

We had a great anniversary dinner, we chose the tasting menu, one classic and one seasonal so we had 14 different courses. most of them were delicious. The soup was too simple comparing to other courses, I think they should change it to more interesting course, to keep the dinner delicious line. Thank you for a great experience.

The food and atmosphere was great. A few of the staff came across a little rude. Our waiters kept changing throughout the evening rather than just stitching to one or two.

I’ve been to the nobs a few times now and although it’s a little expensive it’s worth it for excellent tasty food and great service. Also the bar downstairs had a really good vibe about it. I’ll definitely be back soon.

First time at Nobu, which I have been wanting to try for quite some time. Service was friendly and efficient. I loved the sushi I had as a starter. My main course of beef was slightly disappointing, not bad by any means just slightly bland (and probably had been left sitting for longer than it should have been as the meat was not very warm by the time it got to my table - the hot peppercorn sauce on the side compensated otherwise I would have sent it back). The apple crumble desert was also quite bland. Wine was excellent, if pricey (to be expected I suppose). The ambience and decor is nothing special, a bit tired actually, and the restaurant is quite noisy when full. Couples tables in particular are small and quite close together. Overall I was slightly disappointed, but not enough to entirely put me off going again - I perhaps just chose the wrong dishes.

The kitchen got several of our orders wrong, sashimi instead of sushi and salmon instead of scallops, but they were extremely gracious and couldn’t do enough for us to make up for a simple mistake.
Actually a much nicer ambience than Park Lane, save for the view.
It’s a fortune, and you know that going in, but a really nice treat.

After all these years and many imitators, Nobu still delivers a stand-out dining experience. The Chilean sea-bass with miso remains a stunning dish, simple yet supremely flavourful. Yellowtail sashimi and soft-shell crab tempura with jalapeno also delighted. One of us is gluten-intolerant and the waiter was exceptional in dealing with this. No it's not cheap. But it is most definitely memorable.

Food is good, lots to choose from. Yes on the pricey side but its Mayfair, so expected. It can be quite noisy in there but that's because it's so busy, I'd rather have busy than awkward silence and a quiet restaurant where food isn't been prepared constantly.

I regularly visit Nobu and have never had any complaints previously however on this occasion the service couldn’t have been worse. I called up during the day to change my booking to a slightly earlier time and was told this had all been done, on arrival I was told in a rude manner that it hadn’t been changed as if it was my fault your staff didn’t do their job. The staff made no effort to apologise or try to find us a table instead insisting we either go away and come back or get a drink in the bar. The waiting service didn’t improve things on one occasion I had to ask 5 times to get one drink. Despite how good the food is next time I will be taking clients to a different restaurant where the service is better as I can’t tollerate being treated that way.

Horribel music played at a high level in an already very high sound level. Stressful ambiance, narrow seating and huge pricing is unfortunately talking away the focus from the good food. Mixing bar and fine dining is not optimal.

Nice food.. and good quality products. Amateurish service.. example would be that we must have told 3 separate waiters that our table didn’t want water. 4th waiter to visit our table brings water. Zero communication.
Not worth the £700.00 bill.

On the whole it was a positive experience. The biggest negative was being asked if we wished to have pudding whilst we were eating our main course. The other negative was that the apple crumble was poor and had no flavour.
