Japanese
Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s original London restaurant since 1997. The menu draws heavily on Matsuhisa's classic Japanese training as a sushi chef in Tokyo, as well as on South American influences gained during his extensive travels. The resulting "new style" Japanese cuisine has become both his trademark and the foundation of his success.

With its own street entrance on Old Park Lane, the 150 cover restaurant includes a separate sushi bar and enjoys commanding views across Hyde Park through full-height windows. Designed with simple elegance by United Designers, the interiors make subtle use of light woods and natural stone to reflect the diverse influences of Nobu's cuisine, incorporating the purity and quality materials inherent of traditional Japanese design.

I remember that a dining experience in Nobu two years ago was amazing, with all the really fresh seafood ingredients and the lighting and atmosphere perfectly combined. This meal is accompanied by the memory of the last time. In my mind, Nobu's sashimi is the most perfect in London. Sashimi is as outstanding as ever, especially the O-Toro. But the experience at the Old Park branch was less than satisfactory, although the service was very attentive. The first point was that when the waiter brought the rice to our table, his fingers accidentally touched the rice. I don't think it was intentional. The second point was that because we sit in the middle of the dining room, we can easily look around. The waiter made two wrong deliveries. The first time was to bring the other guests' food to our table, and the second time was to send my extra sushi to another table. Last but not the least, my partner found a black foreign object in the slice of ginger. I'm not sure if it's an insect. We didn't shoot it in time, but I believe the manager of that day should remember this matter. To our surprise, we got a complimentary dessert. But after this dining experience, I am not sure if I will visit it again. I am reluctant to give up the O-Toro provided by Nobu, but I am also afraid that this will happen again.I hope Nobu will pay attention to this comment and improve the service quality from the perspective of management.

Have been to other Nobu restaurants and they were wonderful.
I was very disappointed by this one. No ambience, poor interior design, furniture was old and tatty.

The food is excellent and service is super but the decor and the ambience is lacking. It is very underwhelming compared to other Nobu’s I have visited.
I would come back but I think the restaurant needs a face lift to suit it’s brand.

I have been to Nobu restaurants all over and have never had an issue, this time the staff weren’t as attentive as usual and the overall Atmosphere was poor, just wasn’t the same, I know changes have to be made due to the current global pandemic but first time myself and my guests didn’t enjoy Nobu.

Superb food, attentive staff. No atmosphere and so disappointed with the quality of the seating/tables. No care and attention was put into making the tables look nice. Very shabby given the reputation of the chain. Please put some imagination into making it a desirable dining experience.

We were really disappointed. No atmosphere at all, and unattentive service. We came with high expectations and were immediately let down by the total lack of vibe nor charm. Food was good (although not reflective of the cost), everything else was a big let down

It was very disappointing. Very noisy, I had to chase waiters all the time, food was okay... not worth the money.

We had high expectations with the reputation Nobu has but apart from the new seared salmon dish which was nice the food was at best average but generally poor. The wagyu was so small & fatty it represented zero value! The music was turned off so the atmosphere was none existent so I would not go back. There are far better restaurants than this such as Novikov, Roka, Sake no hana.
