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).

Amazing food and the waitress took great care of us after we left her to keep bringing us all the best bits of Nobu, including a couple of requests. The food is outstanding but be aware it doesn’t come cheap!!

As ever fantastic food, service was a bit bizarre, having rung the day before to see if I could book a table in the bar for drinks before a celebration lunch, I was told there was no need but when we turned up they then informed they were planning to prepare for a private party and so could we sit elsewhere, luckily there was space. Then when ordering, as one of our party had an allergy, the kitchen would not guarantee there was no cross contamination. Not what one would expect from a restaurant of this calibre and price!

As ever, Nobu constantly goes above and beyond expectations.
Service was absolutely impeccable, big shout out to Gabija K at the Shoreditch restaurant - for being so attentive and polite.
Gorgeous food.
Will ofcourse be returning again

Not my favourite Nobu of all their restaurants but always good food,, atmosphere was a little dead and the tables are too close together.

Be sure to ask for a booth! They give them to couples who ask, but only if you know to ask...

Went for an early Sunday dinner (6PM) on our stop over in London with our 2-year old daughter. The staff couldn’t be more accommodating, polite and cheerful. We ordered in ‘courses’ starting with oysters and sashimi, to rolls and finally warms like the Miso Cod and Rib-eye. Excellent Nobu quality in a more casual and contemporary space. We’ve been to the one at Berkeley square many times, which can be formal and a “scene”, so it was nice to visit Shoreditch for a more quite and relaxed Nobu experience. Highly recommend.

Celebrated my birthday here at Nobu and it was amazing! And thank you Nobu for the surprise dessert platter really didn’t expect it! Food was very good and I would really recommend Black Cod Miso! Worth every penny! :-)

Book this for my 50th birthday. Absolutely poor service. Left ages to be served drinks - 30 minutes and had to get the reception staff to call someone to take drinks order.

When ordering food the waiter could not give advice on what to order and when asked what something was he could just say yes that is nice. The food was served quickly and then plates cleared so quick that there was still food on them. To our surprise the waiting staff cleared the plates away and asked if we wanted the deserts menu. We thought they were clearing the plates for the mains and when we asked if we could have some more food the waiter said yes deserts as food would take too long. Finally waited for 30 minutes to get a waiters attention and we ended up going to the receptionist and asking for the bill. I requested the service charge to be removed and the reception staff seemed life less and did not even ask if we had any feedback. I paid the bill and not even a thank you from the reception team.

It was our first visit and were concerned about the music And service having seen other reviews. However we could not fault anything. Service was brilliant, the music was not intrusive and the food was fantastic.

Nobu Shoreditch Omakase menu, was absolutely delicious. The dishes were sublime, and out of this world both texture and taste.

The waiters were very proud in describing the dishes and rightly so.

Food on a different level.

(Unfortunately you don’t see a written menu. Be good to see the list, memorising the dishes is a memory test.) So many dishes i’d eaten before I had the foresight to get a photo of them. Three days later I am still awe struck.

Third time I’ve been and the service continues to be absolutely terrible. After 1.5 hours we still hadn’t received all our food and then were charged for items we didn’t receive...Impossible to give it benefit of the doubt anymore

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.

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.
