I went with high expectations, and left with some disappointment. The food was fantastic! We drew an overbearing, almost bossy server. I’d recommend this Nobu to someone who solely is food focused.

It was everything perfect, we had amazing time but the security must be changed at the door because they been there for so long and they feel over confident now and they make jokes with customers and it’s not nice

Loved everything about our experience, great service our waiter helped us pick from the menu as it was a little overwhelming with some much delicious food to choice from. Beautiful venue where you could hear one another speak.

Too loud, too expensive, quality of food average, didn’t have some of the things on the menu and waiters brought us the wrong order. Disappointing.

New Year’s Eve - but they were in such a rush to serve everything. Even before we finish the previous courses in the omakase. Ruined our New Year’s Eve somewhat

The food was very expensive and the quality medium.
We received one dish after another, too fast !
Bad experience in the dressing room, they lost the hat of my wife.

Nobu est toujours une experience unique. Je continue d’y retourner à chaque fois que je viens à Londres. Pour moi, le meilleur japonais au monde.

Excellent experience from start to finish. Very courteous and welcoming upon arrival. We were seated immediately and not having eaten here previously our menu was very warmly explained by Diego, who looked after us all evening. He gave us the run down of the options and we came to a quick decision on the dishes with a mix of cold and warm plates. The food came out as sharing plates in a very timely fashion although we were not rushed. Each dish was beautiful on the eye but tasty and cooked to perfection. We chose not to order dessert but added some sushi. Again, this was prepared beautifully. Having eaten at several asian/fusion restaurants in recent years this was certainly a contender. The prices are high but the experience, the service and the food are also high standard. We will return

Wonderful service, wonderful food. They made my daughters 21st birthday celebration really special by serving her a surprise sparkler desert while the staff sang Happy Birthday.

It was a surprise lunch for my son. The food was amazing of course and great waiter service exceptional explaining all disused. The receptionist whilst was very professional was not friendly. Which is a shame as it would have made the overall experience magical. Having said that my son and I would definitely go back as the food was memorable.

While the quality of food never disappoints at Nobu and every dish is enjoyable and of the same quality as other Nobu restaurants, the scene and ambiance is disappointing. A mix of clientele from children to eclectic wanna be’s seems to be the scene in London. Unfortunate when compared to other cosmopolitan cities like NY. Still, if Nobu’s excellent food and creative and well prepared dishes is what you need, close your eyes and take your senses with you and you will be fine.

Requested wine several times. It arrived as food was being served. Waiters couldn’t wait to clear plates. Not overly pleasant. Portions tiny. Service did not warrant 15%. Sincerely disappointed to say the least. Will NEVER return

Unfortunately we were not escorted to our table after our entrance. It was kind of chaotic
Dinner itself was perfect as always.

Unfortunately the service of getting a cab was one big disaster.
We asked the waiter, if he could book us a taxi for six, but he informed us to ask the staff of the reception on the ground floor. The staff at reception claimed that we needed to ask the concierge/security at the front door. The security confirmed that that was not his job. I was not happy with the ping pong situation, so I walked back to the reception. The same staff lady claimed that they do not arrange taxi's for their guests.
This was literally the first time that a staff member of a Nobu restaurant claimed this and we have been to a lot of the Nobu restaurant all over the world. Even though it was not the security his job, He wanted to help but arranged a cab for 5 people only. I confirmed to him that we were with 6, so the taxi would not accept us, but he said it would be fine. After the 5th familymember was entered the taxi..the taxi driver complaint that he was not allowed to take more than 5 people, so we needed to get of the taxi again. Normally no problem, but we were travelling with my grandma, who is 90 years old and with walking difficulties, so getting her into the taxi was heavy and get her off even more.

I assume you understand the situation we were in and that we were not happy with this service.

We arrived about 20 minutes early and the hostesses said we did not have a reservation. As we arrived and trying to confirm our booking we were asked, by another employee, if we wanted our coats checked and the hostesses said don’t take their coats they don’t have reservations. We had to show the hostesses our booking on our mobile phone, she then checked her computer and said our table was ready. We have been to several other Nobus and had fantastic experiences. This was not a very nice way to start off a nice Christmas meal.

We have dinned before, service is good, food was ok, no pleasant surprises for the price. It got significantly more expensive compared to the last time we visited. Overall, if you haven’t been before it’s a nice experience. But an overvalued one.

The food was nice but didn’t come altogether even-though we said we were sharing, would have expected the food to come all at the same time.
The service was not overwhelming for a 15% service charge, I was pouring the water to everyone at the table! We were charged the full service charge by the waiter even-though it said optional, I would have preferred to be asked if I wanted to pay for the service and how much I would think is worth the service we got that evening. The food was nice and thats what got the points overall for us. Also booked on a Wednesday expecting live music (as this is what it said on the website) but didn’t hear or see any live music.

We’d booked as were in London for the day shopping. We’ve eaten at Nobu in New York, Dubai and LA, and always had such great service and outstanding food, and were not let down in London.
