SquareMeal Review of Nobu Berkeley St (bar)



Wondrously exotic lounges such as The Blue Bar and Artesian are the late David Collins’ legacy to London's cocktail scene, but at his creative peak, the Irish designer came up with this fabulously ethereal bar at Nobu Berkeley St – the Tardis as imagined for a Japanese remake of Doctor Who, perhaps. Once inside, you can pair Eurasian tapas and sushi platters with silkily superior saké, pedigree French fizz or a selection of top-notch Tokyopolitans. Nifty ideas include Nashi Bottle (a pear, rosemary, orgéat and Russian vodka sour, served in a milk bottle) and Silk Road (a Manhattan based on Nikka whisky, dates and Grand Marnier). Otherwise, One Shade of Grey (a blue Curaçao-laced twist on a Negroni, ‘served sadistically short’) is a cheapish thrill, while Japanese Painkiller (Nobu's take on New York's modern whisky classic, Penicillin) reportedly cures all ills.

Great atmosphere, cool crowd, always some z list celeb bimbo hanging out with sugar dadies!! but is good cabaret. Only thing, drinks are sooooo expensive, 1 beer and 2 house wine 125 ml each, £30, u are having a laugh, and the guy behind the bar had the cheek to put service charge!! which i told him to take off! this place is great but you defo pay for it.

I took my boyfriend here for a surprise Birthday meal, normally I wouldn't even consider going here because of the price. However, as a special occasion, it was perfect. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist, escorted upstairs and passed over to a waitress who took us over to our table, all staff were friendly, the atmosphere was romantic yet buzzy and the food was a taste sensation! Nobu lives up to it's standards and I would definitely like to go again, if someone else gets the bill this time!! Favourite Dishes: - Scallops - Lobster Tacos - Black Miso Cod

One of the poorest meals of my life, at £170 for two people. I asked if the lemon sole was filleted, the answer from the waitress was ‘yes’, which would indicate a fillet of sole, errr – no, deep fried goujons. I sent this back and by this time my wife had finished her (extremely bland) salmon, so I ended up having sushi, which was unimpressive, uninspiring and basic. Pity, that’s the last time I’d go to Nobu after that, Crazy Bear runs absolute rings around this place, go to Crazy Bear for a far better experience – quality of food, ambience and service.
