Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The hype has died down, the celebs are long gone, but London’s first branch of Nobu (there’s a second on Berkeley Square) is still a heavyweight on the Japanese dining scene. Imitations of the restaurant’s signature dishes – black cod with miso, or rock shrimp tempura, for example – can be found on many a menu in the capital these days, but if you want to try the original Nobu Matsuhisa version, then head to Old Park Lane.

Crisp tacos topped with sweet-fleshed crab and piquant tomato salsa make an enjoyable prelude to a meal. Then it’s time to explore the rest of the restaurant’s much-lauded range of Japanese/Peruvian fusion dishes. A vegetarian dish of tofu anticuchos came bar-marked with a spicy red-pepper sauce. Though perfectly tasty, it wouldn’t get pulses racing. Sushi here is excellent, however; our well-shaped temaki was filled with diced scallop and smelt eggs in a rich, creamy chilli sauce.

A meal at Nobu might not come cheap, but a few things are guaranteed: impeccable service, great views (the restaurant overlooks Hyde Park) and perfectly fresh fish. Another likelihood is a dining room packed with moneyed tourists and smart Kensington families, so get your glad rags on.

 

Nobu says
Nobu London has been a Mayfair institution since 1997, serving Nobu style Japanese cuisine, fine sake and premium cocktails, alongside exceptional service. London’s original celebrity haunt, the restaurant looks out over Old Park Lane and Hyde Park and is famous for its exclusive events. Pull up a seat at the sushi bar for a quick lunch, or celebrate a special occasion at one of the restaurant’s large round tables.

Nobu’s most iconic dishes are always on offer, from Yellowtail Jalapeno to the famous Black Cod Miso, or dive into the regularly changing seasonal omakase menu – a selection of dishes crafted by some of the world’s most talented chefs.

The restaurant is open for dine-in every evening from 6pm, and is also offering takeaway and delivery seven nights a week.
