SquareMeal Review of Nobu London at the COMO Metropolitan London

Silver Award

It's "still an all-time favourite", but the late 90s origins of Nobu Matsuhisa's first European outing have given it a time-capsule quality. It's a lovely bubble to be in though, with Hyde Park views through full-height windows and calming wood and stone all around. If the pale walls could talk, they might tell eyebrow-raising tales from a livelier past; that duty now falls to the party-hard Berkeley Street outpost. Here, it's clear to see what all the fuss was (and is) about: the fusion style hits umami squarely in the face. You can't go wrong with langoustines and red chilli shiso salsa, sashimi salad with Matsuhisa dressing, fiery Peruvian anticucho skewers and, of course, the emblematic black cod with miso – served on butter lettuce for that contemporary kick of clean-eating satisfaction. However, cocktails, saké and a wine list priced for big budgets will undo all that good work in an instant.

Terrible place AVOOOOOID

I had the worst experience at this place after the lockdown. I was so excited to have some proper Japanese after so long to be in a setting of a 3 star all inclusive cheap hotel dining with the price of a Michelin star restaurant. It was chaotic , bright light, toooo noisy, no music in the background, waiters seemed hyper , as in we just sit to find him over our heads to ask us to order. The menu is not the same as the nobu Berkeley st, the prices are doubled, the food portion is mediocre (probably my 7 years old kid will be hungry if she ate there). We ordered shared platter for two person , we got the portion of a half adult, ordered miso soup I got a tiny bowl (the size of tapas servings) with tasteless liquid and 3 mushrooms floating for a crazy price . Literally they are taking the advantage of people and will never recommend this place to anyone. I went to the loo, I found like 10 hookers pouting and taking selfies to the extent I had to ask for permission to wash my hands as they occupied all the place (was confused as it looked like the toilets of a nightclub ) overall a nightmare where we ended up filling 5% of our stomaches (me and my partner ) for a 150£ bill !!!!

terrible, Bad hygeine and awful service

Last night we visited Nobu. We were so excited to go out and eat as we haven't been out much since the beginning of the pandemic. 
Firstly the service when we arrived just was not up to standard, the server was unwelcoming and cold towards us, it seemed too much to explain the menu to us. As we walked in i saw a waiter open his mask and cough, I was truly horrified. 

Our first round of cocktails arrived, my boyfriend found a moving fly in his. He gave it back, we did not get an apology from anyone. We then received the main and there was a huge black (what looked like a pubic hair) in our dipping sauce. We then insisted a manager to come and speak to us, he could not understand why we were upset at all. I tried to speak to him and he shut me down with a "just take a seat Madame" with his hand in my face. At this point i was absolutely fuming with the situation. He began smiling and laughing under his breathe as we were trying to explain why we were so horrified. The hygeine was NOT up to par, there is a pandemic going on and the face that there is staff coughing , hair in the food and a live bug in the drink is diabolical.

Best sushi in town. Seems a bit cliche to choose a Nobu but really do love the food and ambiance here. Still very pricey but get what you pay for at this venue!

Still my favourite, it all comes together beautifully, the service, the decor, the ambience. If I was voting on each of these individually it wouldn't win but putting all the elements together it really does.

So, here we are at Nobu – the original of the Asian fusion restaurants but is it the best ? I would have to say no. The food is still as good as any competitors with yellowtail sashimi with jalapenos and blackened cod a must but the atmosphere seems have fallen off a tad. I have been going there for so many years, perhaps my memory is playing tricks on me but the service seemed a little surly on our last visit which was disappointing. If you have a table overlooking Hyde Park, it helps but if you're in the middle of the restaurant, then you could be, well, in the middle of any restaurant. I still prefer it to Nobu Berkeley though where I am afraid too many diners go just to be seen, which isn't my modus operandi for eating out. I'd say try Nobu, Zuma and Roka and decide for yourself as they are all very good.

It's funny to think with Nobu at the Metropolitan – the original London branch, if I may add – that this is really where the whole pan-Asian dining revolution started. Also I remember conversations about price, and how extremely expensive Nobu on Park Lane was. However, the price point has been consistently pushed higher by all kinds of contenders and I was positively surprised by the overall fairness of the price tag. The classic dishes still perform very strongly. I think it is more timelessly stylish than its over-the-top sibling a few streets accross too!
