Japanese
The menu at Nobu London, draws heavily on Matsuhisa's classic Japanese training as a sushi chef in Tokyo, as well as on South American influences gained during his extensive travels. The resulting "new style" Japanese cuisine has become both his trademark and the foundation of his success.

With its own street entrance on Old Park Lane, the 150 cover restaurant includes a separate sushi bar and enjoys commanding views across Hyde Park through full-height windows. Designed with simple elegance by United Designers, the interiors make subtle use of light woods and natural stone to reflect the diverse influences of Nobu's cuisine, incorporating the purity and quality materials inherent of traditional Japanese design.

I've been to Nobu in London several times now. And other places. For the first time I was not entirely happy with the food. Something has happened since last autumn. The WOW factor was missing this time. Small, exclusive tacos had less taste, the beef wasn't really tender and some other minor issues.

I hope they find a way back to previous standards!

If I could give zero stars I would.
Service poor.
Took ages to revive drinks and starters.
Soup - Luke warm and no spoon to eat it with.
Tacos - just plonked down in front of us. Server did not know which ones were crab, which were lobster.
These are not cheap and were completely tasteless. No difference between them. Taco just broke into pieces and was very dry.
Waited over and hour for main, but were brought several dishes that weren’t ours!
Asked for bill as we just wanted to leave.
Then the Manager tried to charge us for mains that never arrived.
Wine was £68 for the bottle - again not cheap. We left half of this as we left.
The Manager offered little in the way of apology.
A poor evening particularly as it was our wedding anniversary.

Too noisy, a factory, not a restaurant, waiter didn't take note of the small adjustments we asked to our plates, he tried his best but had way too many tables to serve

having a reference point at Nobu in NY, this location was way too busy, rushed, not enough service attention , noisy; it may not be fair, but in some sense resembled a fast food place

Fantastic service from the moment we arrived. I had asked for a quiet table and was suitably looked after despite it clearly being very busy. Food quality and speed of service excellent.

Had a lovely meal with friends. The service could’ve been a little bit better. Apart from that, it’s a great place to enjoy a meal x

I go to Nobu as my daughter like it! I fond once again to be in a very noisy restaurant with average food. Very small portions for prices charged. We had a bill of £600 for four with very little alcohol. There are so many nice Japanese restaurants in London with much better food and not a pricy. I just have to after my daughters away form the hype!

I was shocked with the quality of food. Not sure if this is due to the recent change as I have been there before.

One example was the veal which was extremely gamey, I couldn’t take a bite without tasting the meat, lacked flavour/seasoning.

I chose the valentines set menu, which was loaded with fish, I think I’ve had enough fish for the year!

My wife and I went to the original Nobu in Old Park Lane In London for Valentines Night a couple of days ago and enjoyed a pretty legendary dinner. Great wine pairing. And a couple of spectacular dishes created for the occasion. Better than ever !

Great place to spend Valentines, only downside was waiting 1 hour for my first course! Made up for it with free bubbles and a free dish wasn’t the waitresses fault but a faulty printer in the kitchen!

Would go again...

Great food, but not every dish was amazing. In fact only a couple of dishes were extraordinary and the rest were ok. The deserts were somewhat disappointing. Excellent service though!
