A couple of weeks ago I went for a meal with a couple of friends to Japanese restaurant, Nobu. It’s located above the Metropolitan Hotel, Park Lane, but had its own entrance to the restaurant. The staff, decor and more importantly the food, were all excellent!
When we arrived the staff were friendly and welcoming. We nibbled on edamame beans while deciding what to order. We didn’t really know where to start, so I asked the waiter if we could share the food – I was half expecting him to turn his nose up at me, but he said everything on the menu could be shared and he then guided us around the it! Put at ease, we ordered the tempura dinner, the black cod the sashimi dinner and sushi dinner to share.
The food was lovely, but the black cod was certainly the highlight of the night! I can’t stop thinking about the miso marinated, sweet, mouth-watering taste of the silky black cod.
It’s hard for me to describe the food, so here are some pictures:
Sashimi and Sushi:
Two of us finished dinner with a cocktail, one Lychee cocktail and one Watermelon cocktail, which were both delicious. I could have worked my way through the cocktail list! My other friend had a white chocolate with green tea ice cream for dessert (I can’t remember the name of it!), which he also enjoyed.
Along with a bottle of Sancerre and a bottle of water, the whole meal came to around £270. The food was definitely worth it.
I would love to go again and am thinking of visiting the Berkeley Street Nobu, but I don’t have many friends who like sushi (or they just refuse to try it!). Also, if you’re umming and ahhing about what to wear, it says the dress code is smart casual, but most people were dressed smart.
