1 Michelin starred at time of visit - Japanese venuw for those in need of glamour with one of the nicest salads on record but questionable service
Editor's note: closed May 2020 owing to the impact of COVID-19
My visits to here have always been a pleasant experience in terms of the food and the particular likes were the tempura battered lobster and lemon, lobster salad (coincidence on the lobster being the two favoured dishes). They have, however been tainted by the restaurant displaying either passive-aggressive customer service or the too many of the clientele trying to be the next new celebrity lookalike spoiling the show.
The bar is very swish and is a good start to an evening if one didn’t go on upstairs to the restaurant however, the feel of the place does seem to take itself a little too seriously, probably based on its Address. Food wise, I have never had any serious complaints other than the fact it is extortionate for what you get (hence my comment on self-esteem) and the demotion of the Michelin star (as at 2015) for both Nobu restaurants may be a useful wake up call for them to address the quality of the food for the prices they deem fit. I would definitely go back and most probably will, but this will be to fit an occasion and the friends I’m with rather than the food.
