Chef: Mark Edwards
Situated opposite the Mayfair Hotel bar Nobo Berkeley Street is conveniently placed. I also like the decor here, particularly the bar area which is stunning.
The menu is extensive, with many interesting Japanese dishes, however being sushi fans we could not resist the sushi menu. We started with a selection of sashimi and then moved onto sushi, also trying the sea urchin (good taste, strange texture).
The fish was all very good but not outstanding. On another visit I would be interested to try some of the other Japanese dishes.
Unfortunately I don’t like Sake but if you do there is an interesting selection here which the staff are happy to let you sample before choosing. Our cocktails were so-so until Mr M’s final cocktail which was actually unpleasant. Perhaps more importantly the fact that he left it majority of it untouched seemed to go unnoticed by the staff.
In summary we had a pleasent lunch but I wasn’t as impressed as I had hoped. Based on our visit I don’t see them being re-awarded a Michelin star any time soon. Worth returning for dinner? Maybe but somehow I am not in a rush to return.
