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).

The Infatuation

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.

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

We had pretty high expectations for the food and we were intrigued by the menu. The food was exciting to eat, but in London you get as exciting and much cheaper food in pop ups. We left feeling slightly underwhelmed.

Trashy crowd, tampura was greasy and served on wet old lettuce, seared tuna was drowning in soy sauce.
Sushi rolls and nigiri were OK... not more than your regular delivery.

Stayed at the hotel for two nights for my wife’s birthday. Great experience! Started with some great cocktails at the bar and then sat at the sushi bar where we essentially had our own chef making whatever we wanted. Very attentive service and food was excellent as you’d expect.

Will be coming back to stay and eat again!

The food at Nobu is, as expected, exquisite, but there is no 'vibe' and the layout and decor for lunch feels more like a canteen or Wagamamas than a top-end restaurant. A little disappointing.

Food was good quality as you'd expect from Nobu and all freshly made but the buffet was unimaginative and frankly meagre. A poor second choice to the a la carte which is what to go for if you're already expecting to spend more than a decent amount of money here. The salad selection was poor and as a result looked wilted due to little take-up. Good choice of main courses (1 per diner). Black cod, particularly good but don't expect any accompaniments. Desert selection was OK. Again, unimaginative but you don't go to Nobu for the deserts!

Food, as always, first class but such a shame that the staff that welcome you to the restaurant and one or two members of the bar staff, seem to think that they are mini celebrities because they work at Nobu! I love the restaurant and the cuisine but find it extremely irritating and somewhat boring that certain staff that work at fashionable establishments, not just Nobu, seem to think they have the right to look down on people as if they are the founders or owners of the establishment!! A cheerful smile and general helpfulness is ultimately what you’re supposed to do! We get it, you work at Nobu, get over yourself!

Amazing food, great service and beautiful place. Lovely patio. Great drinks. The only downside was that the toilets were a bit dirty, as in lots of blocked toilets...

Amazing food, service and environment. Lovely staff and an amazing selection of items available. Only thing that I felt could have been improved was the Avocado on prawn toast - I had hoped it would be more than Avocado on Toast with prawns in but still tasty enough.

The Sushi and desert bar selection was wonderful, so fresh and ever replenishing - not a single thing I would change!

Thank you for a lovely brunch :)

Food was good; however the waitress ignored us because we were a smaller party and she prioritized her bigger parties over us. It was to the point where I had to ask for a dessert menu. And then it took 35 minutes to actually get the dessert. We were also seated next to two six person parties, a table of 10 and a table of 18. All with the same waitress. Manager was nice when I spoke to him but it puts a bad taste in your mouth to receive poor service at such a nice place.

It wasn't the wow restaurant I was expecting. The service was unattentive and lacking in personality , except one member of staff . The tables were too close together not imitate and I was expecting. The quality of the food was first class , but wines were over-priced . I've certainly enjoyed better establishments in terms of ambience, service and choice .

Absolutely loved the quality of food. The selection as well was out of this world. However the portion size for what you pay is ridiculous. The evening would have been better if the server ever checked on us, we have been to Nobu Newport but were hopeful this location would better.

Tried to gdt an earlier apponintment at 4:30 but resturant opened at 6 which was fair enough. Had a appintment for 6 and waited till 6:30 to ask one of the staff what the delay was to find out there was no delay finally sat down the serving staff and chefs were great but the people who sit you down dont seem organised and kind of just wait around for u to come to them very weird set up. This was my birthday and i had to get back to my baby ao ended up rushing it all and asking for the bill as soon as due to this. I also got served a drink and charged full price rsther then happy hour price at the bar had to bring this up to barman and then he changed it on my tab may havr been a mistake but thought was cheeky.. when i ordered another drink at the bar this was taking ages i said to the women is it on its way she said oh it hasnt come yet let me go get it overall not a nice experience for my birthday.. may need to get some training from the dubai branch as much better experience

We enjoy visiting the various Nobu locations across the globe - meal was lovely and fantastic service (but we did need to ask them to slow the pace). The interior (furniture and tables) are starting to look worn and dated...time to refresh

Absolutely phenomenal. Brilliant food, lovely setting and wonderful atmosphere. If you are thinking about going, I would just book as you won’t regret it. Everyone is just incredibly attentive, with a smile. My beef was perfectly cooked. Met Nobu himself who was an absolute dream. Definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back.

Brilliant experience here, no doubt an expensive restaurant but worth it for the quality of the food, the impeccable service and atmosphere. They were happy to wait for us to make our good decisions and took the time to go through the menu with us and help plan the courses. Loved it would recommend and go again.

We love Nobu - the Shoreditch Nobu has a very different vibe to the Mayfair restaurant. This is more energetic and hip drawing a different crowd. We went here with our three teenagers who loved it. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. Cannot wait to return.

Very disappointing. Being repeat customers at all the other Nobu restaurants world wide ( and all the other branches having superb Brunches) it came as a surprise that this branch did not meet our expectations. From the poor and sloppy service to the lack of variety of the Brunch menu and buffet to the bland taste of the food. Hats off to the sushi chefs and interior design of this branch only. You need to step up your game to be on the same level as Abu Dhabi and Malibu.
