Japanese
Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s original London restaurant since 1997. The menu 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.

    The ambience is really disappointing. Paying michelin star prices for food, and sitting in a cheap canteen style / hotel breakfast room. If you want a classy NOBU experience. Go to the one in Nobu Hotel in Portman Square.

    Food was very nice but portion sizes were lacking in some dishes - £14 for 2 pieces of shrimp tempura is just ridiculous. Service was great but setting was underwhelming, reminded me of the floor of a hotel buffet not one of London’s top restaurants.

    Noisy and sad like a diner. We were left waiting 30 minutes for our table, which was ready but they forgot to tell us. One dish ended up on “the wrong table”, another one never arrived. People in shorts or dressed like just out of the gym. Good food, but an excessive bill for a never again experience.

    What a shame. Was so looking forward to our visit. The food is good - the black cod even outstanding. But the whole experience just doesn’t add up. Insane prices for something that looks like a cafe that’s going to give you a BLT. Very tired looking. Toilets like being at a garage. Honestly the food doesn’t justify the price. Teenager was so excited to go for her birthday but the Nobu glory days are well and truly over. Spend your big bucks elsewhere.

    Don't get my wrong the food is decent but for the price, it is not worth It at all. The sushis are nothing special which I hoped would be better at such a fancy place. However, the mains such as black cod was very good and other than that, very moderate.

    Fabulous food, service and ambience. Two of our party of 4 are vegetarian and there was still plenty of choice. The miso asparagus and veg tempura were so delicious as was the yellowtail and black miso cod. Rather pricey but well worth it.

    Overall the food is very good, and the sushi excellent. The beef toban yaki although tender and cooked medium rare, was very dry. The interior is in need of a refit. It looks very tired for the level of restaurant it purports to be, and the staff need to be a little more personable and polished. It was very loud due to the lack of sound absorbing decor and low ceiling.

    The Wagyu was Devine and to be honest the sushi and Sashimi Quality was on par with some of the best Japanese restaurants in Tokyo and Hong Kong which has some big ticket Sushi joints. Go raw, go simple, can't go wrong.

    Food was below standard and honestly quite average for a restaurant of Nobu's standard. Sushi rolls were quite terrible, mushrooms were bland and dessert was limited. Only positive was the Miso Black Cod which was outstanding. Other than that, the food was terrible. Service was fantastic though and we were well looked after from the moment we entered till the time we left. I do not think I'd be going back though.

    Haven't been to Nobu for around 20 years, and happy to say that the food is still very good indeed. The restaurant really needs a refresh of the decor, which looks tired and outdated, and the ambiance doesn't do justice to the food or live up to the prices

    I was quite disappointed in the quality of the furniture and decor - it had a bistro/canteen vibe which did not match the quality of the food, service or the price. Due to a lack of soft furnishings such as table cloths, the restaurant was very noisy which ruined the ambiance. The service was excellent, except that I was told the California roll sushi was made with fresh crab but was actually artificial crab stick. I was extremely shocked to be served crab stick in such an expensive restaurant!! Otherwise the food was delicious. The crispy rice was Devine, but the presentation was better at their Malibu location. Overall this is a good restaurant and lovely food but for the price I would expect a higher end environment and not artificial crab! Our server was great otherwise too.
