survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Still doing amazing sushi… still incredibly expensive” – London’s original Japanese-fusion haunt is increasingly overlooked nowadays, but it remains a “classic” for some reporters; the odd celeb still pops up now and again, but even so the dining room “lacks atmosphere”.

Summary

“It’s certainly no longer London’s hottest place”, service remains “moody”, and “the bill is always more than you expect”… but this once-path-breaking Mayfair dining room still offers “brilliant” Japanese fusion fare, and “great people-watching” too.

Summary

London’s original Nobu still cranks out “wow” Japanese-fusion fare at “crazy-expensive” prices, still has “perfunctory” service, and still drags in a fair few “movers ’n’ shakers”; “it’s definitely past its glory days”, though, and the atmosphere is “not what it was”.
