In the basement of this very boutiquey, year-old Shoreditch hotel – London’s first from the global Japanese-American chain – the big, airy dining room opens onto a small sunken garden. To fans, its sleek styling, wizard sushi and “perfect cocktails” make it “pricey but worth it for a special blow-out”. To sceptics, though, it’s all a bit ‘vieux chapeau’: “for what it is – an old formula with nothing innovative – it’s overpriced; and you can have much better Japanese elsewhere at a fraction of the bill”.

“I can’t believe there’s a Nobu in Shoreditch!” – there is indeed, a 240-seater in the basement (with small courtyard garden attached) of London’s first hotel from the Japanese-American superbrand, serving all “the usual fare” (“consistently great sushi”, “top-notch black cod”, etc) “with a couple of Shoreditch specials”. Some fans reckon it’s “better than the others in the stable”, especially its “buzzy, loud ‘cool’ dining room”, but like its siblings it can seem well “overpriced”: “loved it, but there were too many City-types spending the bosses’ money!”

Summary

Inside the brand’s newly opened (July 2017) Shoreditch hotel, the 240-seat restaurant incorporates a sushi counter, bar and outdoor courtyard, and occupies almost an entire floor of the building. It opened too late for survey feedback, but aside from the odd exclusive dish here, a repeat of the cooking at the other two London Nobus is our expectation.
