Having been several times, there are some consistencies and some inconsistencies. Food is always great, staff always pleasant. Waiting times for food and service seem to vary, even when not that busy. There are better places for atmosphere and overall experience. However it has to be said for first timers it still has that factor to impress.

I do not agree at all with the ones who commented before, I've been to Nobu several times and I've always recieved excellent service and food. Sure the portions could be larger, but it's far from the smallest portions I've seen in the same price range.
I think the waiting time between courses is terrible...The food is nowhere as good as a small traditional Japanese restaurant like ikeda or sakura. Give this overpriced place a miss...It was a bad experience, I only went because as a patron of good Japanese food I like to give as many Japanese restaurants a try....bad mistake!
The worst Japanese food I have eaten in London,last week were at zumas which was fantastic well worth the visit, (we have booked to go next week), but Nobu berkley street is appalling ,not only did we have to wait over an hour for our food but when it came it was a portion for an anorexic ( and I'm a size 8) ,having ordered a Chilean sea bass ( which was stunning at zumas and a large portion) I was appalled to find a dish arriving with 4 s all pieces of sea bass ( blink and you would miss them) then we had over 40 min wait for our chicken ,only to behold that it takes 30 mins to. Ok, we ordered it 60 minutes ago !!!!! And it. Should say on the menu if something takes half an hour to cook. Over all one of the worse experiences of eating out in London. Don't go, do your self a favour and go to zumas ,but. Book in advance as its very busy, due to the quality of the food unlike nubos .
