Nobu - Berkeley Street
Service was not very friendly.
Food is extremely average. Other clientele are noisy and obnoxious and the overall design and feel is very cheap and basic. The food is overpriced. Would not eat here again - at £500 for 4 persons expect a lot more
Always have a consistently good time at this place. Food is always reliably great quality and good and attentive service from staff which is a huge thing for me. The baby spinach salad is simply divine and the sushi is some of the best in London if not the world. Always leave with a spring in my step!
restaurant of this name should have been more specious to begin with. the atmosphere is far from being something to tell about, a lot of name, no value. service was awful we got cold soup (a hot soup served cold) we returned the soup due to being cold then got the other dishes before the soup the waitress provided no support or advise on the menu and was generally un-cooperative. we finished by getting up at the middle of dinner and left. been travelling all over the UK in the last two weeks the only place I can say for sure will never come back.
As always top service and food and met all my requirement
Good ambience (although I did ask to have the table changed as the first seating was like a diner with bright lighting.)
Staff were friendly and knew the menu but the food itself was disappointing. Very expensive but really no better than a yo sushi of itsu.
Pleasant service if somewhat erratic as one dish was forgotten and we had to remind service twice. Table was very small and was clearly only meant for two (we were 3)
I've been to Nobu on numerous occasions however this time the service wasn't great... a bad night / understaffed, who knows but I was certainly disappointed.
The food was delicious, however I was surprised by how small our table was and how close it was to neighboring tables (we were at a two person table on the right side upstairs). Also, we did the Omakase menu and it happened twice that the next course arrived before we had finished the previous course. In my opinion, a restaurant of this caliber and price point should not let that happen.
My first time at the Berkeley Street venue and I bought my family to celebrate my brother's big birthday. We each got the tasting menu's/split of both, (7courses) - the food was outstanding! However, the service was incredibly pushy which ruined the experience & I wouldn't attend here again, especially for a special occasion. Firstly, we were encouraged to order extra food off the menu - I'd had the rock prawns before and knew that were delicious so gave in and said we'll get one - I was then told I needed two dishes as a min. I have NEVER been told to get extra food in additional to the tasting menu. Previously, in other venues I have been discouraged from this as the tasting menu should be enough,SURELY NOBU? We were then told to get Saki as an accompaniment -which was made out as part of the tasting menu. When I order another G&T I was told ‘get a cocktail instead’.. No I want a G&T.. Before the dessert came out - I asked if we could have a 10min break and was told no as they have another table coming..all the dishes seemed to be bought out within 5mins & we were constantly being circled waiting for us to empty the plate.I was also disappointed that only the frontdesk mentioned my brother's birthday.
I wouldn't recommend this venue - super rushed, extremely pushy to up-sell and astonished at being encouraged to order additional food - it absolutely wasn't needed. I've only had outstanding service in both the other Nobu venues so not sure what's going on here Mark?
Too noisy, we could not hear our words at the table. Even perfect food can not justify that. the atmosphere was completely ruined. They should re-think the interior and tables set up.
My daughters booked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I enjoy coming to this restaurant. It never lets me down. The weather was awful but once I came in I was in a much better mood.
we ordered a variety of dishes. I now wish I had the black cod now as it is one of y favourite dishes.
The service was attentive but not rushed.
The atmosphere was just right.
Overall it didn’t let me down.
Very safe choice with great food - but is expensive and I'm sure some of the dishes (particularly the snow crab) are smaller than they used to be
I booked Nubo for a birthday, and feeling sad to say it did not live up to my exception. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere, and the staff was wonderful. But the big let down was the food. We ordered the Omakase set, a 7 set course. Many of the dishes was lacking taste. One course we had a sushi set, the rice just crumbled the moment we touched them with my chopstick. I have to say none of the dishes where anything special and I've had better for a cheaper price tags. I would recommend anyone going to order individual dishes and not the Omakase set.
As always great service and food always have had my request met with
Excellent service great Food and Drinks
Perfect - as always! It was again beyond words! But if you ask for one it is DIVINE!!!
Rude male servers and management, asking us to move table to the back of the room in the middle of our meal..total pathetic! Waste of time coming, miserable staff.
Absolutely amazing dinner, fantastic service, best food I have ever eaten by far. The atmosphere is just fantastic.
Delicious food, Great athmosphere, super service - looking forward to the next visit
Birthday dinner. Service was incredible, food was good. Highly recommended
I have dined at Nobu several times and this was the worst ever experience. Our server got the order wrong and then decided that the best form of defence was attack saying that me and my friend did not understand the way food was served at Nobu. He was condescending and arrogant - a simple sorry would have been accepted. His manager tried the same approach but tried to fob us off with a free dessert that we did not want!! Really disappointing and we will not go back to that restaurant again.
Try the baby shrimp tempura. California sushi and crab roll sushi was amazing. Service could have been better
TOO MUCH NOISE
FOOD PORTION TOO SMALL
WAITING TIME TOO LONG TO PLACE ORDERS
WE WERE ALL VERY DISAPPOINTED....
The main course, the shrimp, was very bad. it left a super bad taste. The sauce was so bad taste. The food quality was totally bad and given the price, the restaurant is highly over rated. The service was not at all diligent. The waiters keep us waiting, not paying any attention etc, we had amazing food in london with only nobu being an exception
I have been a regular customer at Nobu for years! I love the atmosphere, the service is impeccable and the food just a dream! I recommend it for everyone!
Ask the waiters to help with the menu if you haven’t been before. Great food just a bit expensive but that was to be expected.
everything perfect like everytime
The waitstaff are extremely pleasant and can't fault them. For the price your are paying:
1) chopsticks are disposable ones that you get from your local takeout place - I suggest having metal ones, may be more environmentally friendly.
2) no table cloths - unbelievable.
3) other than the octopus dish we had as a starter, the rest were nothing special. I would go to either K-10 or Eat Tokyo for better value, taste and presentation.
Absolutely disappointing. It is as if they stopped trying and relying on the name.
Nice enough restaurant but had much better sushi at a fraction of the cost... Really paying for the novelty at eating at Nobu.... Very very noisy restaurant couldn't even hear the waiter talking to us!
Nice treat but would not go again...
Outstanding food, location and service.
Everything was the highest quality and professionalism, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience @ Nobu.
The only thing that freaked my wife out is the glass mirror in the bathroom that looks like something out of a horror movie with blood splatters running down it, but that's art for you :-)
Food was tasty and service was excellent
Food was tasty and service was excellent
Wonderful experience. Staff were lovely and explained everything with great patience. Chefs accommodated our needs beautifully with no fuss whatsoever.
Thank you! It's always a pleasure to dine at your place:-)
This was our 7th Nobu location visit worldwide. Food and service were exceptional - as always. Thanks !!!!
Delicious food and excellent service.
Nobu should not allow babies and should improve their prices slightly as its a bit overpriced
