Located within Europe’s first Nobu Hotel, the brand new Nobu Shoreditch restaurant is an exciting addition to the east London dining scene. London’s third Nobu restaurant boasts 240 covers, a sushi bar, semi private dining spaces and a 4-terraced courtyard.

Pioneered and created by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, the iconic Nobu menu is influenced by his years of studying Japanese cuisine in Tokyo and his extensive travels.

The diverse celebration of flavours formed Nobu’s trademark ‘Nobu Style’, which is intrinsic to all Nobu menus worldwide. As well as the classics, Nobu Shoreditch serves unique plates inspired by the creativity and vibrancy of the local area

Designed with the iconic Nobu aesthetics at its heart, the restaurant space radiates a dynamic yet classic energy synonymous with the Nobu brand. Throughout the restaurant there is a palette of rich oak timber, cut into varied grain patterns (solid, veneer and crown).

London’s third Nobu, hidden away in the basement of their self-named hotel in Shoreditch. The space is impressive and the menu is predictively pricey.

Went for my birthday and went for the lunchtime Bento boxes- so much more food than we anticipated and as expected, the food was outstanding. Such a good selection of the restaurants best dishes. Service was brilliant and staff were all very welcoming.

Came to Nobu to celebrate my partners 28th Birthday. Had an amazing time some creative menu choices and all cooked and served to perfection. The service attentive without being overbearing and the ambience and venue compliment the overall quality of the hotel itself.

Will recommend and visit again.

We enjoy visiting the various Nobu locations across the globe - meal was lovely and fantastic service (but we did need to ask them to slow the pace). The interior (furniture and tables) are starting to look worn and dated...time to refresh

Absolutely phenomenal. Brilliant food, lovely setting and wonderful atmosphere. If you are thinking about going, I would just book as you won’t regret it. Everyone is just incredibly attentive, with a smile. My beef was perfectly cooked. Met Nobu himself who was an absolute dream. Definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back.

Brilliant experience here, no doubt an expensive restaurant but worth it for the quality of the food, the impeccable service and atmosphere. They were happy to wait for us to make our good decisions and took the time to go through the menu with us and help plan the courses. Loved it would recommend and go again.

We love Nobu - the Shoreditch Nobu has a very different vibe to the Mayfair restaurant. This is more energetic and hip drawing a different crowd. We went here with our three teenagers who loved it. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. Cannot wait to return.

Very disappointing. Being repeat customers at all the other Nobu restaurants world wide ( and all the other branches having superb Brunches) it came as a surprise that this branch did not meet our expectations. From the poor and sloppy service to the lack of variety of the Brunch menu and buffet to the bland taste of the food. Hats off to the sushi chefs and interior design of this branch only. You need to step up your game to be on the same level as Abu Dhabi and Malibu.

We went for the weekend brunch for the second time in three months - it’s really amazing and despite being a bit pricey, actually amazing value for money considering what’s on offer. The black cod is almost , other shout-outs go to the modern beef, tuna tataki and the whiskey-flambeed pudding! Will visit again!

The restaurant and bar is great and the service is impeccable. We ordered extensively from the menu, some of the dishes were big hits, surprisingly some where quite bland. The Salmon New Style Sashimi was bland and lacked flavour, equally the dry aged (28 Days) grass fed ribeye hobayaki with 38
japanese mushrooms delivered nothing. Big hits were the lobster tempura and of the course the black cod. Slightly disappointing given price, however, the service was outstanding. Could do better in the kitchen.

Having been to other Nobu's this one has a nice vibe with DJ etc & glam feel.
The food was quite good, however maybe prefer the other ones - I'd say 90% as good as the others...

What an absolute disaster. Booked for five people including two visitors from Australia, a land of great Japanese restaurants, and my wife visiting from the country who loves Japanese food. Well, first, this is not Japanese food as we know it. Some awful modern fusion, badly cooked, badly presented. The only dish that was even close to being nice was the salad.

Service was a complete joke.

The good parts of the experience: the cocktails were good, the Oni Negroni in particular. The bottle of sake we have with the meal was £115 for 1.8l which was very good and very good value for this restaurant.

But the food and service were so bad, and the price so extortionate, that it was an absolute embarrassment when we had to split the bill. I would never, ever eat in such a pretentious apology for Japanese food again nor any restaurant bearing the Nobu name. My recommendation, avoid at all costs. And if you don’t those costs will be very high.

We went for the weekend brunch and the selection of sushi items was excellent and plentiful. We were each able to order a main as well which allowed us to try a few options. The service was quick and attentive. The atmosphere was festive/buzzy without being overwhelming.

We were all looking forward to going for brunch at Nobu Shoreditch. The reviews looked great and the brunch definitely seemed appealing. The venue is beautiful - very sleek and modern. Just from walking down the stairs from the hotel lobby to the restaurant, the atmosphere feels more like a club than a high end restaurant. Perhaps, loud music is what I'd expect in the evening walking into a bar - but certainly not at brunch. The staff was very kind from the beginning and promised to turn down the volume - not sure if this actually happened, but they seemed quite sympathetic. The food and service were both incredible - the selection at the sushi bar was limited, but so delicious. Our mains were all outstanding and the desserts were delectable. It's really the music and some of the clientele who couldn't control their volume (likely due to overindulging in the bottomless brunch) that would stop us from going back to Nobu Shoreditch. I can understand louder music in the evenings, but certainly not during the day - it ruins the experience. I'm not sure why the vibe from the lobby bar cannot be recreated downstairs, especially for brunch and lunch. Such a shame as the concept of this brunch is so unique and the service was excellent. Maybe a rethink is due for the management.

We arrive on time for our table booked, they asked to wait at the bar when half of the restaurant was empty, by the time we sat they ask to move to the table. The waiter did not explain their quite complicated menu. We asked for sakè and water, the water arrived warm they had to replace it.
Service not excellent as we were expecting from Nobu.
Impossible to go out for smoke after 11pm terrace close. Restaurant door close as well you need to go out through the reception hotel door! Scandalous
