Nobu - London
Superb Food, Drink and Service!I have dined here a number of times before but this meal was by far the most enjoyable! The service we received was outstanding. We did what I would strongly recommend anyone to do when dining here and told the waiter to bring us what he felt was a good choice! We asked for a couple of dishes we knew we wanted and left the rest up to him and wow were our expectations exceeded!?
Truffle gyoza, langoustine skewers, soft shell crab sushi, the famous black cod and sashimi to die for!!!
I'm not normally that into deserts but was persuaded to have one and it was simply heavenly...apple crumble with peanut and salted caramel ice cream!
It was not cheap but it was a special occasion and one of the food highlights of my year!11/05/2013 00:00:00Missing nice atmosphereMore like a canteen type of restaurant, unfortunatelly08/05/2013 00:00:00Loving Nobu London!We went to Nobu to celebrate a birthday, and the restaurant couldn't have been better. Food was amazing.. we went through a number of different dishes - highlights in particular were the yellowtail with jalepenos and the black miso cod. Staff were helpful and friendly and gave us a full rundown of the menu, offering their opinion to which order they felt we would enjoy our choices of dish most. I could have eaten the food over and over again, and will certainly be going back for more.08/05/2013 00:00:00Birthday mealHad a nice birthday meal with family the service was a little rushed to begin with, as it was peak service, but became more personal/attentive as the meal progressed. Food was very good and the tempura prawn starter, in particular, was outstanding value, considering portion size05/05/2013 00:00:00A magical evening12 in the party, and it couldn't have been more festive. Food was fab, and perfect for a large group. Service was attentive without being pushy. Restaurant is noisy, but perfect for the celebratory meal....couldn't be happier, or more satisfied from both physical and aesthetic sides.
GO28/04/2013 00:00:00Yellow tail sashimi with Jalapeno…My girlfriend and I went some years ago to Nobu in New York. We have since then frequently commented on how good the food was. I have also felt quite strong cravings after the yellow tail sashimi starter.
Anyhow, last week we went to Nobu Park lane in London. And, the food was as good as we remembered. OK, it is possible to find as good sushi in more restaurants but I have never ever tasted anything as good as the Nobu yellow tail sashimi. I am truly hooked on it! I love different types of food but there is nothing I have tried that is as good as that starter. Try it!28/04/2013 00:00:00best fish dish EVERWe were 4 people there on 27th of March and we were eating a blend of different apertizers that we ask our waiter to recommend. For main course we tried the signature dish, black cod. That was the best fish meal I have ever raten. And I will most definitely come again just for the black cod. It is a 'must have'27/04/2013 00:00:00Great place for an eventSuperb food that is so well crafted and presented. The Sake complimented so well with different flavours and tones. It is a busy place so you will need to be tucked away for an intimate date.27/04/2013 00:00:00Sheer ClassIt was a fun evening with lots of lychee-flavoured sake and YK35 flowing. We had a baby with us and staff went out of their way to find him a comfy spot in his stroller. Made all the difference for us. We decided to have multiple servings of taste platters which didn't disappoint. Must try: yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno, miso "chips", pork belly, negi toro (almost stole the night), lobster tempura salad platter, any salad with matsuhisa dressing and did I mention the lychee sake :). Overall, a memorable meal with wows from my group for the taste of most dishes (clearly sourcing top-quality raw materials is a priority here). The noisy chatter and laughter adds to the ambience of a night of classy fun.18/04/2013 00:00:00Everything was really great!Everything was really great! Service, Cocktails, Food, Ambiance!
I will come back as soon as possible!08/04/2013 00:00:00food, service, venue, allfood, service, venue, all outstanding. Not much food for the money.07/04/2013 00:00:00You get what you pay for!NOBU dishes out deliciousness, consistently. And if weren't for the persistent "Yes, but it's so expensive"' then overall general reviews would be glowing! Ironically, every person who has said the above to me about the price of NOBU, has never even been there! Maybe it's just latent jealousy! Good things cost more. Value is always in vogue. I go by this: Value = Cost / Product. Yes, you will pay 50% more to enjoy a great NOBU dinner. But with NOBU you'll have a meal that is exceptional, at least TWICE as good as that other place that isn't so expensive. You get what you pay for! At NOBU you get great food, a myriad of amazing selections, attentive wait staff with prompt but not overbearing service, and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.07/04/2013 00:00:00Great service and foodWe had two hours here before heading to the theatre Food came quickly and was really well presented and tasted amazing.
I will be returning to have the tasting menu at some point.06/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding Food.The quality of food was next to none with fantastic presentation. I would recommend the yellow tail sashimi with jalapeño- a real treat. The staff were extremely helpful and very attentive throughout the night. This restaurant however is quite an expensive night out but perfect for special occasions.06/04/2013 00:00:00London's best Japanese /fusion foodWe have been coming to Nobu for a decade and have eaten at 6 or 7 of them around the world. It does Japanese with a twist better than anyone else. Not well known that they also have a Michelin star and they deliver to Michelin standard and beyond in every department. Just don't forget your wallet or you will be washing up for a very long time!05/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding service good vineOutstanding service good vine selection good food overall very good04/04/2013 00:00:00OmakaseWe had classic and special Omakase and they were both fantastic ! They were the ultimate Japanese cuisine. The staff were helpful and friendly except they need to be trained on how to explain the dishes properly.01/04/2013 00:00:00Great SushiWe've had great sushi in Tokyo; Nobu rivalled our best comparison. The quality was great, service was efficient and the atmosphere was ideal for a private conversation. We will return.01/04/2013 00:00:00It was out first visit andIt was out first visit and the food was absolutely excellent, if rather sparse in its portion sizes. It is so delicious you really do feel you could have the whole plate rather than share as we did amongst five. However, I would recommend going with friends on a first visit, as we did, as you then get the opportunity to try and share many more of the delicious dishes, recognising that you will only get a taster of each dish, then go back again and have a whole portion of the things your liked best!!
Our waiter was excellent, as we're his support team!30/03/2013 00:00:00My first SushiNobu was a great place to try Sushi for the first time. The waiter suggested that we try the taster menu, which includes 6 of the chef's signature dishes. Each of the courses was incredible and we were very excited after each one to see what came next. The highlights were the blackened cod - which is marinated in Miso for 72 hours, the Wagu beef teppanyaki and the coffee and ice cream dessert. The Sushi and Sashimi selection was also very good. The service was very quick and attentive. The only (very small) negative would be that we were told we would get 2 dessert courses, however, one of these is coffee which neither of us actually drink. Despite this, the taster menu is incredible value for money. I will definitely be going back.30/03/2013 00:00:00Great and trendy restaurantWe loved our visit to Nobu. It is a great and trendy restaurant with excellent dishes. We recommend to try one of the menus, you will be surprised with amazing tastes and spices. It's not cheap but it's very good! London overall is expence if I may say so.30/03/2013 00:00:00NobuReally excellent, despite being really busy we never felt like we were being ignored. The Black Cod in Miso was crazy good. Will go back soon.28/03/2013 00:00:00NobuWe absolutely love nobu, it's our fourth time there! And we will continue to go back because the food is amazing and the place is wonderful! Most importantly it holds a special place in my heart as it is where I proposed to my fiancé!
Essex27/03/2013 00:00:00Nobu was better than anywhereWe have been to restaurants all over the world. Per Se in New York, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London, Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas, The Fat Duck in Bray, Chez Bruce in London, The Savoy Grill……..The List Goes On. Nobu was the best dining experience we have ever ever had.23/03/2013 00:00:00Flame keeps burningTime passes but Nobu like a good wine keeps improving and is remarkably consistent.The food never disappoints the lobster salad cannot be equalled in London and the wagyu beef tataki style is phantasmagorical.Service is quick,friendly and informed and the house wines particularly good.If you haven't tried the advacado tempura you haven't lived and your taste buds have been denied.Admittedly some of the clientele are their for the kudos and insist on using knives and forks and eating the cooked items- they will come and go but the institution is full of people who enjoy and appreciate it.Critics say it is a lot of money for raw fish,they just don't get it.Nobu whips the contenders to its throne,form is temporary class is permanent.22/03/2013 00:00:00Nobu is a fantastic japaneseNobu is a fantastic japanese dining experience. we came all the way from Holland to visit this fancy restaurant, and truly enjoyed!22/03/2013 00:00:00Bit expensive but memorableHad the taster menus (lunchtime) as we liked everything that was on the main menu and couldn't decide. It's expensive but exquisite, relaxed atmosphere, got the feeling that it was full of regulars. Service impeccable. I felt that it was really healthy too, didn't emerge with that feeling of having over eaten.16/03/2013 00:00:00Wonderful food... you payWonderful food... you pay the price for it, but definitely worth it. Good service despite being absolutely packed16/03/2013 00:00:00Reasonable value / qualityWe are lucky to have experienced many michelin star restaurants and enjoy our food. We enjoyed our meal and would even say out of the London michelin restaurants we enjoyed this the most - service was excellenet even if the restaurant itself was slightly loud. Food was great (we had the tasting menu) but not amazing - still it was a nice experience.16/03/2013 00:00:00Again, Nobu is fantastcWe have been to Nobu several times, and this time it was even better than before. Would higly recommend th chef traditional menu, where get a lot of different tastes, served in a fantastic way. We will come back!15/03/2013 00:00:00A great evening out!We went as a group of 4 to celebrate a special occasion. The food was excellent, as usual! The service was also very good, the waiters are always there when needed but never make you feel "supervised". Great job! We asked for seared Wagyu sushi, topped with truffle oil which was excellent even though it was not in the menu!14/03/2013 00:00:00The NobuWe had a great time everything was first class only draw back was its expensive so reserved for special occasions only13/03/2013 00:00:00Dining at Nobu for the first timeGoing to Nobu for the first time, we had great expectations. This restaurant did not disappoint. We were completely blown away by the service, ambience and most importantly, the food. On our must have list: Japanese marguerites, beef tenderloin tatami with ponzu and garlic chips, yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño, dover sole with black bean sauce and the tempura shrimp. A truly incredible dining experience!13/03/2013 00:00:00Great food, too loudThe food was exquisite yet the noise level was a bit of an issue for me. I could not hear my guest and I had to keep shouting. Not easy when you mouth is full of delicious raw fish.09/03/2013 00:00:00Nobu is a fusion style japaneseNobu is a fusion style japanese restaurant. We had their most famous dish - black cod with miso and it was delicious!!!!!!!!! definitely go for this one! but the beed toban was too salty, the taste was a bit heavy. their appetizer was okay. lots of ppl order the soft crab roll but i dont recommend it coz nobu is not a place for sushi roll. their deserts were good. try the chocolate bento box!07/03/2013 00:00:00We went to Nobu (Park Lane)We went to Nobu (Park Lane) for lunch for my husbands birthday. I had been there once before for lunch and thought it was fab! I also believed I knew where I was going when I came out of the station and i obviously didn't, so we were unfortunately 45mins late for our table, despite that we had a very warm welcome. The service was excellent, the food was excellent and the pudding was to die for!! We will be returning at some point for another special occasion or something.06/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely restaurant, good foodLovely restaurant, good food and nice ambience. A bit expensive but worth it.06/03/2013 00:00:00Marvelous dining experience!All aspects of our evening at Nobu were perfect. The staff was courteous and efficient. We were seated in a timely manner. Our orders were taken promptly. The food was wonderful in both presentation and taste. There were several interesting options that are not seen commonly at sushi restaurants. Very nice experience!06/03/2013 00:00:00safe heaven for delicate tasteApart from amazing dishes(baby spinach salad with truffle oil and dried miso is exceptional) I must emphasize the delicate touch of friendly service-I forgot my glasses and coud not read the menu ,but out of the blue the serving lady shoud up with 5-6 diffrent glasses so that I could choose the matcing ones...04/03/2013 00:00:00Great dining experience!I really enjoyed my dining experience. Food is superb and the service excellent.02/03/2013 00:00:00WowUnbelievable food and a great dining experience. One of the best meals I have had in a long time.23/02/2013 00:00:00he food es delicious. It´she food es delicious. It´s an expensive place, but you can really taste the difference.22/02/2013 00:00:00LOVED ITexcellent food and sevice, lovely location, definately coming back for anther weekend brunch!16/02/2013 00:00:00An enjoyable evening at NobilityMy husband and I went to Nobu for my birthday on a Saturday evening. The place was very busy which was ideal for a Saturday night. The tables were slightly too close together so you could hear the conversations on the tables next to you. The food was exquisite and completely different to anything I have ever had before. We had the 5 course menu which gave you a taste of everything but at £85 per person plus drinks it wasn't cheap!16/02/2013 00:00:00Service was fantasticThis was my first visit to Nobu. Our waiter offered excellent and considered advice from a menu which was initially daunting for a first timer. The food was well presented, excellent quality and varied. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to others. The ambience was relaxed and friendly.11/02/2013 00:00:00AmazingHad an amazing experience, every thing we tasted was perfectly cooked and flavoured. Personal favourites included the snow crab in a spicy sauce, lobster tacos and the black cod. Waitress was lovely and very patient with us as it was our first time. Would love to come back frequently but unfortunately our student budget won't allow it again!09/02/2013 00:00:00Best Asian food in London?The tasting menu was just fabulous. My wife and I order one "normal" tasting menu and one "experimental" tasting menu, which gave us the double number of dishes to share. Wow! Eating here is just an experience.02/02/2013 00:00:00Very good foodHave been to Nobu several times. It is the restaurant I prefer when going to London. Excellent sushi.01/02/2013 00:00:00Ultimate sushi experienceBoth me and my family were extremely pleased with the dinner we had at Nobu. It was the first time for us to be there and didn't know exaclty what to expect but since the first moment we felt to be in a very comfortable place. Everything was easy: reservation, getting there, taking our table, choosing and eating. It was a very fresh and enjoyable experience. There is no need to spend many words on the food: it was for sure the best part of the evening: amazingly fresh, original but simple at the same time; everybody found something to accomodate his/her tastes. Even though the place was full nobody felt stressed and the atmosphere was relaxed. The staff has been absolutely welcoming, cordial and professional. It was absolutely to repeat.29/01/2013 16:00:00ALMOST PERFECTAmazing food, nice place, although I missed some background music, very professional staff.
The manager though, very dissapointing, I made a mistake when ordering the dessert and said the name of the dessert that was just right below in the menu. As I didn't like that one at all I had to pay for both desserts. Fair enough as it was my fault, but we are not coming back. You do not expect this poor attitude from management in such a high-class restaurant...25/01/2013 16:00:00
