Located within Europe’s first Nobu Hotel, the brand new Nobu Shoreditch restaurant is an exciting addition to the east London dining scene. London’s third Nobu restaurant boasts 240 covers, a sushi bar, semi private dining spaces and a 4-terraced courtyard.

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).

London’s third Nobu, hidden away in the basement of their self-named hotel in Shoreditch. The space is impressive and the menu is predictively pricey.

Very pleasant brunch and atmosphere. Dessert choice was a little below par and the main course was small portion wise, however the unlimited sushi bar was excellent.
Nice ambience and attentive staff.

We would have preferred a drinks package which included champagne as the unlimited option was limited to Prosecco.

It’s a shame that they have seating slots of 2 hours. Noise can be really bad if you are sat close to the bar.

The restaurant was in my view clearly over capacity for Valentine’s day which meant the staff were too busy to give any table much attention. We had to wait nearly 25 minutes for our cocktails to be delivered and the table was not cleared away properly after our main course / before dessert. We also both felt the beef tenderloin was very over-seasoned.

The setting and the food was excellent, the issues we had on the night ( 13/02/19 ) was purely done to the service. Our order was completely messed up and it transpired that it wasn’t just our table. Although they apologised and deducted the main meal from our bill, it just spoilt what should have been a nice dining experience. So hence my low reviews.

Een fantastische avond beleefd bij Nobu Shoreditch. Eerst een aperitief genomen in de uiterst gezellige bar. Daarna genoten van verschillende gerechten. Stuk voor stuk culinaire hoogstandjes. Ook de wijnkaart is van zeer hoog niveau. Dit alles wordt omkaderd door een prachtig decor en topbediening!

Ridiculously overpriced. Tiny portions. Food comes out too quickly. Ordered the £85 7 course taster menu, the first course was out before the wine approximately 2 mins after ordering. Obviously it's cold and sashimi so hardly takes and skill to plate but too quick. Left hungry after a £333 bill. Didn't even get a bowl of rice with that. Absolute robbery. How these places stay in business and actually go from strength to strength more than amazes me.

Food was great but service was shocking. We had the taster menu but had no idea what each dish was as it was so loud we could hear the waiter. We also had to wait an stupidly long time for food, at one point we clocked up almost 40 mins between course.
Also sure we missed out on a couple of courses because they had forgotten.

Service was great and food good quality. But they’ve recently changed their selection of buffet food, and the black cod selection on the brunch menu was half the size of what they used to be. So definitely we’re feeling less value for money, especially when we know what we used to get on the same brunch menu.

I lost one (very expensive) glove either just outside or in the premises as I walked in. The people on reception have no empathy. No comments of “how can we help?”. “Oh that’s terrible, we’ll look”. Just blank robotic expressions and a suggestion that I should “make my date pay”. They looked at me a though I was crazy and made me feel stupid.

I have little confidence that the restaurant will follow up. It was all very ABC.

ps the servers a the table were good (order/drinks/food). Thank you to you guys

Had the Omakase tasting menu. Very rushed service, the first three dishes came out in quick succession and plates were whisked away... Then a lull in service and hot food took awhile to come out. Average food, nothing special. Dishes were either overwhelmingly salty or overwhelmingly bland. Dessert was basic and the chocolate fondant was powdery and dry... And they rushed us off from our table after dessert was done. Would not recommend.

The food is delicious and the chefs outstanding, the service staff make you feel very comfortable and there’s a great atmosphere. My only complaint was that as the last seating the last half hour we had to keep asking for top ups and sometimes didn’t get one until 10 mins in, this meant spending more money on our final drink as out of drinking hours. To be fair we were pretty tipsy by this point. Aside from that loved it all.

Food was lovely as expected. I’ve noticed an increase on the brunch prices for the New Year. We opted for the bottomless brunch where we had unlimited access to the sushi and dessert bar with a choice of one main meal from the menu. The black cod was expectionally good.

Weekend Brunch which had gone up in price in the new year by £8 however the quality of the food was fantastic.

There is a great selection of sushi and sashimi however maybe a little too much tuna and salmon.

Mains are small as you choose one per person then the buffet is unlimited. I found the salad to be average but again the quality of food is fantastic.

Great selection in the dessert section with macroons being a highlight.

Staff were friendly and attentive and able to answer any questions

Our Nobu experience was very nice, food and drinks were fantastic with a nice touch bringing out a 30th birthday cake as surprise for my partner. Only downside was a drink being dropped on to one of our dishes which splashed the Gyozu sauce over us both - funny at the time but unfortunately when we left we realised it had stained my jumper - not the end of world, these things happen! Wouldn’t put me off attending again....
