“All that hype, but still good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

We were thrilled to be treated to dinner at Nobu. Our hostess did hope that we would have a "star sighting," but this is not the place to go if you want to see celebrities. It's a big, fun, expensive and delicious place. Nobu has great, smoky dark atmosphere and excellent service. The food is still really good. We began with miso soup and tempura vegetables which we fought over; they were so yummy. We had our favorite from the Aspen Matsuhisa, the Rock shrimp. Amazing. We also shared a variety of maki rolls all of which were delicious -- fresh, the right balance of spice and flavor.

“Great Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Tried the tuna sashimi with jalapeno due to excellent reviews and it did not disappoint! We could have ordered 3 more plates. Had kobe beef with sizziling rice, it was good, but nothing outstanding. I read lots of reviews about the Black Cod with Miso and the waiter also highly recommended this dish......both my husband and I were not impressed. It was good, but defiinitely not remarkable. We also had Calamari "Pasta" with garlic sauce. This dish was amazing!! There is no actual pasta, the pasta is the squid. It was mixed with fresh asparagus, mushrooms and other vegetables. Delicious!! Would def go back on a return trip.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

I like Nobu in London, but nothing beats the original.

I can honestly say that I never had a bad dish here. Last time we went we shared a few starters between us and they were all delicious.

Service perfect - food perfect - delicious.

“Nobu never disappoints and is surprisingly child friendly at lunch time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant week menu at Nobu is tremendous value. All dishes came with the usual subtle flavor combinations and elegantly presented. Our 18 month old grandson was treated like a prince, and he, like us, loved all the food: black cod, tempura shrimp, tempura scallop (which we ordered extra), Arctic char, raspberry cheesecake mousse with thin wafers. We equally enjoyed the assortment of sushi but to be on the safe side, didn't give any to the little one.
