What we eat is unclear. Not fully Japanese but not Japanese for foreigners. Something in the air not really striking but not unpleasant Waiters are very very nice and kind It’s a lot a money for a misty experience However it’s worth to try

We really enjoyed dinner here, we had the same dishes that we get in London, black cod, pork belly, sushi. I was really surprised at the price, its the cheapest meal we have ever had at a Nobu restaurant.

No dress code but definitely a smart casual atmosphere and as the other reviewer said, best to dress appropriately if you'd like to pop into one of the other bars in the One and Only hotel after dinner. Enjoy!
