Japanese
Located within Europe’s first Nobu Hotel. Pioneered and created by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, the iconic Nobu menu is influenced by his years of studying Japanese cuisine in Tokyo and his extensive travels.

The diverse celebration of flavours formed Nobu’s trademark ‘Nobu Style’, which is intrinsic to all Nobu menus worldwide. As well as the classics, Nobu Shoreditch serves unique plates inspired by the creativity and vibrancy of the local area.

Designed with the iconic Nobu aesthetics at its heart, the restaurant space radiates a dynamic yet classic energy synonymous with the Nobu brand. Throughout the restaurant there is a palette of rich oak timber, cut into varied grain patterns (solid, veneer and crown).

We came to Nobu for bottomless brunch - it was incredible! The food was amazing, bottomless sushi and bottomless dessert (the cheesecake was just divine). The service was also outstanding, everyone was so welcoming, attentive and professional. I would highly recommend!

Food was flavourful and satisfying despite the portions being fairly limited for the hot dishes we ordered. Waiters seemed to be informed about the dishes. Good experience overall.

There are much better experiences - both in terms of food and ambience - to be had in London at this price point. Distinctly average.

Only downside was the ambient music that was too loud and

I was so disappointed and the evening which ruined my boyfriends birthday! The service was appalling. Had a plate removed before I was finished while I was still eating. I was also asked by a waiter collecting an empty plate of oysters to put my shell back on the original plate. Not how you expect to be treated while paying a lot of money for your meal. Food was okay but you’re paying enough for it too be!!

Loved it, would go back: the main mail (the sushi taster set) was outstanding, especially the sea bream. What was surprising was that we seemed to be forgotten halfway through the meal and the "pudding" was nearly inedible and sub-par, both in presentation and taste.

Overall, would recommend (especially if someone else picks up the tab!) but my strong recommendation is to skip the dessert and make sure you don't wait for the courses like we did, especially if you have a time constraint.

My reservation was at 930pm and we were there on time. The host told me that the table was not ready and asked us to take drinks at the bar which we have waited another 30 minutes. Eventually they have charged us the drinks we had at the bar with no apologies.

Also my two favorite food in Nobu is yellowtail sashimi and the miso cod. Sashimi was somehow tasteless thais time and miso cod was over cooked!

What a poor experience with Nobu Shoreditch Don’t plan to come back again.

I chose Nobu for my 20th birthday celebration because I thought a high class restaurant like this one would be great for celebration. This was true, the food was amazing as well as the waitress, who explained the menu very well. However, I was disappointed that the cause of the dinner was not properly acknowledged. Even though we mentioned it on the reservation as well as my friend, who mentioned it to staff numerous times, we didn't get anything. This would have been completely fine, had it not been for the approximately 5 tables around us getting a special "Happy Birthday" plate with candles and everything. We have asked them if they booked this in advance and they all denied and said the solely mentioned it on their reservation (same as us). We left a bit disappointed, but filled with delicious food. I would recommend going there for either a normal lunch/dinner or if for celebration, actively request a special little something to be made for you or your friend, because otherwise, it won't be done.

We went for their weekend buffet brunch and WHOA. We have never experienced something so high quality & decadent. A buffet of Nobu classics, freshly prepared--vegan/vegetarian options included. The bar was filled with thick cut sashimi, deluxe sushi rolls, a selection of nigiri, mini-Chirashi and crispy rice with assorted toppings. A second spread on the bar served salads and desserts. We ate so much we didn't eat for the rest of the day--but we couldn't have been happier.
HIGHLY recommend for Londoners or visitors.

The service was very uncoordinated. The food was good but the way it came was too irregular and disruptive. There was a 15 delay between 2 peoples main courses. The service was very disinterested and disengaged. For that price range you can expect and get far better. It is far too overpriced for the overall quality of the experience.

This was out first visit to Nobu Shoreditch. We have been to Nobu Berkeley Street and Park Lane many times so wanted to try this one out. The food was, as always, very good. Service excellent. It was very quiet though and I am not sure if this was because is was a Sunday night or it is always a little quite.
The Shoreditch "Cool Factor" is definitely there and my daughter has a fabulous birthday - that's all that matters to me.
Would recommend, but maybe go in a large group if you want to have more of a party atmosphere.

The staff are super polite and courteous. The drinks and cocktails are amazing. Nonetheless the food is not align with the rest of the Nobu’s I’ve been to. I got the black cod miso which is my all time favourite yet it lacked flavour. The sushi was not wow as it usually is.

2nd time at Nobu and it's still great. The taster menu really gives you a wide variety and the miso black cod alone is worth coming back for, but what's with the one meat dish? It really doesn't stand up to the same quality as the rest of the menu.
Service was very good as you expect but cocktails ordered were forgotten about which was a little bit of a let down.

All in all, I'll come back - if only for the black cod.

The food is indeed very good. Price is high
We went on a day that was very quiet. Unfortunately this meant we were inundated with waiters looking for something to do. At one point one even removed my plate whilst I was still eating.
The music I'm afraid was way too loud for a relaxed lunch.

Dined on my own at the sushi counter. Head-chef was extremely friendly, assertive and professional - enhanced the whole experience. Food tasted great, good fresh produce and served rapidly. Kudos for that! However, even though I know Nobu restaurants are very renowned and prestigious establishments, and one pays in consequence, I simply can’t put my head around how expensive my bill was. To be fair, yes i had maybe a bit more than average with a few luxury ingredients so I was expecting it (and I’m lucky enough to be able to afford it now and then) but still... £240, alone, on a Thursday evening...ouch
