Always great. It is not the place to go for a cheap and cheery evening, but if you want to relish every mouthful of food, Nobu is outstanding.

Outstanding as always, the service was great ... They made us a dish that was no longer on the menu that we love. The waitress was very attentive and personable.

Very average. Nothing particularly wring with it. Just for the money paid, it’s not very special.

Make sure you sit downstairs in the main restaurant. We were seated upstairs, it was still quite nice but downstairs is where the main action is!

Brilliant evening at Nobu celebrating our son’s 16th birthday. We were given a Greta table by the window. Service was attentive and food was so delicious. Our son was given a candle and happy birthday dessert which was lovely. It is an expensive treat but worth it for a special occasion.

I have had some amazing food experiences in my time. But this one, this one takes the biscuit! This is my first try at a Nobu restaurant and has left an imprint on my mind that will forever pull me back to that place for another great experience again and again, hopefully with new people every time.

Good dining. The food was delicious. Every time I visit London Nobu is on my itinerary. Normally I choose from the a la carte, but because we had a tight schedule that day I decided to order a classic bento box for the first time at Nobu. And I was quite surprised. It was really good!!
So I am quite fond of Nobu. Really good chef. Too bad there isn’t a Nobu in The Netherlands.

we tried to order gluten free and dairy free food - the waiter said always this is no problem and he was obviously not able to communicate this with the kitchen.
So it took us a while to sort this out - what meant - the wrong food arrived at our table and - and somebody higher in the stuff chain had to be drafted in to solve the problem.
After we finally got what we wanted and what Nobu said was possible, but they seem only to deliver with great difficult all was good.

We chose the set lunch menu including two appetisers. There was a nice time gap between ordering and the first and second appetisers being served, BUT the main arrived immediately after the second appetiser. I asked for it to come back once we had finished our appetiser, but it appeared again half way through and we were made to make space for it, whilst still trying to savour the appetiser. This spoilt our enjoyment of the meal, but did not take away from how delicious the food was. The restaurant was quite noise and it was difficult to hear our conversation.

Best food I have ever tasted, portions were just right, flavours were on point, our server was brilliant in helping with choosing what to eat and how, decor looks simple yet elegant. One of the best restaurants I have visited.

Not the cool factor that is used to have and doesn't feel like the luxury place it should be. Super sweet but very unexperienced waitress - she took my cutlery off my starter plate and placed them on the table so I could reuse them for my main course. Not sure what to say about that:) The starter was good but my main was pretty blasé, I'd make it better myself. The level of noise is a joke. All in all it was a waist of money and the evening didn't tick any of my boxes. Shame!

The restaurant and especially the furniture(first floor) should be refurbished
Sense of hurry during service
Food was good but overall experience is average

Went for a birthday dinner; my friend called up beforehand to organise a candle on the dessert but we ended up not ordering anything for dessert.
To our surprise, the staff still provided a complimentary birthday dessert without anyone saying anything to them.

Service was excellent :)

This was my first time to dine in Nobu. I mistakenly had the reservation for another day but they say it’s ok and they have availability, this was much appreciated. The food was really good, I liked every dish I had specially the nigiri. The service started very well but then the waiters kept roaming around our table asking us every two minutes if we are done with our food! They started removing plates that still had food in before asking our permission and rushing the table cleaning which was really annoying! The when we asked for the desserts menu the waiter waited by our table and kept giving us suggestions even that we didn’t ask for them, and as soon as we finish the dessert he came to the table with our check/bill which we also didn’t ask for! Really disturbing and disappointing service...

Have been coming to Nobu for the last 10 years and this was the worst experience, the restaurant was just 50% full but the staff seemed to be so busy , our Drinks came after reminding the server , water which we had ordered came exactly after 45 mins .. the server never came even once to ask if we wanted anything and every time we needed anything had to ask someone for it .. the food was very average, guess other places now offer better food and service and that’s why it was half Empty on a Friday night .. guess Curtains for me as far as Nobu london is concerned where I have had some great meals and good memories ..

Delicious food, drinks are good but too expensive happy to pay that for the food as that’s outstanding but drinks could be less.

Don’t get me wrong, the food is great, the quality of the fish is outstanding and the sashimi and black cod is simply perfection. But the restaurant lacks any wow factor and ambience, it’s dated and needs a revamp. Service was fine but doesn’t warrant a 15% addition to a £370 bill...
Would try the newer Shoreditch restaurant next time!
