Nobu London Restaurant Review

: Nobu is tucked away on the first floor of the Metropolitan, but still pulls the crowds, though less urgently than before. The globe-trotting Japanese-American head chef Nobu Matsuhisa has brought his genius to London, ably interpreted by chef Mark Edwards who helps open all the various restaurants that Nobu finds the time to launch around the world. Signature dishes include the black cod with miso; the new-style sashimi, which --- atypically --- incorporates garnishes, dressings and marinades; and uniquely Nobu fusion dishes such as anti-cucho Peruvian-style spicy chicken skewer (anti-cucho being the Peruvian equivalent of yakitori) --- marinated meat grilled on a stick. It's best, though, to order the chef's selection, which gives you a tour of the Nobu repertoire. Even if you know Japanese food, you'll never have had dishes like this before --- except, perhaps, at one of the Nobu branches around the world, including Nobu Berkeley Street. Set lunches £27; set bento box lunch £33; set meals £50, £60; set dinner £80, £95.
